    He played himself. Treliving handing out long term contracts to players like tanev, he should have asked for the moon.

    Happy for him. My buddy took his two sons to meet a bunch of flames last summer and he said this guy was an absolute beauty to all the families that attended, couldn’t have met a nicer guy

    Solid. I always like the players whose give a shit meter is always at 100.

    Seems like this guy and Lindholm are the only Flames that come to play against the Oilers, they kill us everytime.

    Lets pump the brakes there. Long way to go before he's a point per game player that can be one of the best forwards in the league when he's on. I think you underestimate how hard it is to replace a player like that. Gaudreau is more productive than Iginla (different era but still), those players don't come around that often.

    Honestly when Mangiapane is on his game, he’s an extremely effective player. Crazy we took him in the 6h round. Guy is a gamer and a really good player in all areas. Great contract.

    And passed over once in the 2014 draft too. To be an NHLer after all that is rare. He's a gamer for sure.

    I would kill to have Dube, Mangiapane, and Bennett on the Avs. Flames actually have a lot of nice pieces, but their star players have been a huge let down the past couple of playoffs.

    I'll probably get flamed for this, but I have said before that Mangiapane reminds me very much of Brad Marchand in Boston - minus the attitude. Marchand is 5'9" 181 lbs, Mangiapane 5'10" 184 lbs. Both play with tenacity, have great edge work, and get in close in the slot. Both are strong possession players. Both are speedy and have great hands.

    In a perfect world, Mangiapane can aspire to reach the heights that Marchand has (production wise). If he only reaches half of that, most Flame fans would be pretty darned happy.

    Mangiapane is not speedy at all. He's competitive, has good hockey IQ and good hands. But he's our slowest top 9 guy outside of Tkachuk and Monahan. Rest of your assessment is pretty fair, but Marchand is a top 10 forward in the NHL. That's a pretty lofty comparison.

    Mangiapane “is not speedy at all”????? That’s a way out there assessment; he is a very good skater.

    No he isn't. He's a below average skater bordering on bad. He's a bit like Tkachuk where his hockey IQ is so high that he compensates for it. I don't know if people are confusing his with Dube or something. Dube is an elite skater.

    Going back to the original Flames scouting reports, the organization felt his speed was an asset. I agree. He isn't Paul Byron fast, but he also isn't a plug.

    He was the 4th slowest flame forward at our super skills last time. Granted that was a year and a half ago. He's noticeably slower than Backlund on the ice. Granted, Backlund is an above average skater, but he's not an elite skater.

    Had to read some scouting reports to confirm what I see when watching this player. His game is about skating, especially speed.

    I believe that Mangiapane skates to match his line-mates. Last year he was playing with Tkachuk and Backlund. Put him on a line with Bennett and Dube and watch him fly.

    I understand your views on this but i just think that is far to high of a ceiling to pin on him. IMO (and ive said this many times as well including this thread) Mangiapane has a very similar game to Reilly Smith on Vegas. Relentless player with an excellent compete level and strong posession stats too. I think this is a much more realistic compassion and by no means a let down as Smith is an excellent 2-way player
