Noah has to retire now, right? Woof.

But also i thought Gaudreau looked pretty good in the last two thirds of the game.

Tkachuk looked like an bumhole, which is exactly what you want out of him.

completely agree with all your points. I think bennett- dube would be a good duo. Jankowski looks to be done in flames uniform. Time to give czarnik a opportunity. Reider and JAnko just contribute nothing.

I suspect our 3/4 centers will be some combo of Ryan & Bennett Saturday night and Janko will be watching from the team suite.
Last night was not a horrible performance by any stretch though and it was nice to see Lindholm continuing to be the STUD he has been since the day the Carolina traded him our way. With 4 years left at 4.875 this could be the best contract in hockey!

“5v5 chances were 10-3 Calgary”

What is that lol? Are you saying we had 3 chances the entire game because thats dead wrong.

“Calgary outshot Edmonton 37-30 but the dangerous chances favoured the Oilers”.

From Sportsnet. Someone here is lying and me thinks its you.

The Flames were easily the better team for the last 2/3s of the game.

"read"... you lost him right there.

Any thoughts from anyone on the rink, fake crowd noise, overall vibe of having no fans in the stands?

Hey Geta!

I actually didn’t mind it! Although I was listening on the radio and initially I was like damn, it sounds like at least half the fans in Oil town must be Flames fans. Represent! And then my brain reminded me of current reality and I was like, oh yeah, fake fan background noise. It does get glaringly noticeable when the refs make a poope call and there is absolutely no booing tho.

Edit: Speaking of which, it’s going to be weird when Buttman does his presentation of the cup and there is nothing but cheering going on in the background...

I think the no crowd thing is really weird, personally. I love that Benny was being playoff Benny! I agree with changes to bottom six - Janko be done in Calgary. Coin toss on the goalie.

Hey sir... Hows tricks?

It was a bit weird to watch tbh. One thing I noticed was the number of masks being worn by non-players. I assume that all that are at the game remain in the bubble and are tested at the same frequency? The(equipment) guy on the Flames bench had one on but not the coaches? Just an observation as the City of Calgary is about to roll out the mandatory mask thing. Nenshi is a boob.

I have to say, kind of neat that Bear's name bar was in Cree...

Bears name bar was cool. Way too cool for Edmonton. He should demand a trade.

Hockey again. Depending how the opener goes I think Clyde might just send his cousin Kablooey back.
