  1. Calgary releases: Taylor Hall Corey Perry Michael Frolik Ben Hutton Michael Ferland
  2. Calgary Flames Protection List: Forwards: 1. Connor McDavid 2. Sean Monahan 3. Nikolaj Ehlers 4. Ryan Johansen 5. Elias Lindholm 6. Jesperi Kotkaniemi 7. Jesse Puljujarvi Defense: 1. Hampus Lindholm 2. Noah Hanifin 3. Travis Sanheim Goalie: 1. Carey Price @Nail
  3. Good call with Seattle. Unless they are trying to compete next year (unlikely) then this is a win win scenario.
  4. If we can fit it in, then I’m definitely game too. Adding RNH and Podkolzin, along with some advancement from Hogz and Lind could put us over the top talent wise to be a legit threat from the West I think. If somehow we can snag a Jones like D with Schmidt + 9OA + something else then I think we’ll have arrived to compete in the West.
  5. If Schmidt + 1st + something is the package I think we take it and run. How is this not a well balanced D grouping moving forward: Hughes Jones Rathbone Myers Joulevi Hamonic Yes please. Many years of a great D core before we need to replace Myers and Hamonic.
  6. If we can offload Loui’s contract for a 2nd (Actual $ is much less so I bet there would be an easy taker now) we can backfill that with RNH on a 5-6M x 4 contract to give as another top end offensive talent. Basically like trading a 2nd for RNH. Hoglander Pettersson Boeser Miller RNH Podkolkin Pearson Horvat Lind Looks pretty darn elite to me....
  7. I would take the deal presented by the OP to get Jones if CBJ goes for it. Reasoning: -Draft will be a good one as there are 10 really good players in the draft, however it's still a lot of hope that player will reach the level of Jones in 2-3 years -Schmidt still holds value today, but I fully expect that value to drop as his performance drops or stays the same and the contract could be an anchor. He is a middle pair guy and we have lots of options for that range which are mostly cost controlled. -I fully believe now that Lind will be an NHL player for us, but definite
  8. Obviously there is a lot of talk about bold moves, but I'm curious if that is actually needed. We have a solid core group, but where we fell down is the talent of our supporting cast. If the top guys struggled or got injured there was nobody that could help us win games. It almost makes me want to hurl even thinking about it, but it got me thinking that some of the Leafs supporting cast was actually pretty good in some regards, but their core is what lost it for them (Which was great to see BTW). That said, their supporting guys can all bring value over what our AHL depth type
  9. Yeah it will likely take more for sure. I’d do a first for him especially if our window opens within the next two years. He’ll be in his prime for many years to come.
  10. I think we need to continue to up the skill level of this team. Requires a trade for Ristolainen (2021 2nd, Lind, +) and some FA signings but I’d like to see: Miller Pettersson Boeser Pearson Horvat Granlund Hoglander Stastny Podkolzin Motte MacEwen Highmore Hughes Hamonic Joulevi Ristolainen Schmidt Myers Demko Holtby Cap might not work so we may need to part with Schmidt (Rathbone steps in) and Holtby (DiPietro or UFA steps in, but I like the look of that lineup.
  11. If Jones ever came on the market and we were the team it would be something like two 1sts and Hoglander or Podkolzin i would think.
  12. If we need a 3C I think we just go for a short term option like Stasny, Staal, Bjugstad, Granlund etc. Tons of vet C so we can likely get one and swap Virt for another out of favour prospect or bu him out.
  13. Still think Ristolainen should be our target. Won’t break the bank to acquire, cap is reasonable, has size and offensive ability. There is something wrong in Buffalo affecting everyone: Hughes Hamonic Joulevi Ristolainen Schmidt Myers Rathbone Forms a pretty uptempo D with Rathbone slotting in for injuries/rest
  14. Calgary Flames Playoff Roster: Forwards Connor McDavid Nikolaj Ehlers Ryan Johansen Taylor Hall Jesse Puljujarvi Jesperi Kotkaniemi Corey Perry Michael Frolik Carter Verhaeghe Defence Ben Hutton Adam Larsson Sami Niku Sebastian Aho Goalies Carey Price Tristan Jarry No Black Aces worth adding as they won't make it to the NHL.
