    It should be only a matter of when not if changes happen in Calgary.

    Rev up your engines for a fleury of Gaudreau and Tkachuk offers

    also side note, why the hell do most of your star players have such difficult names to spell?

    Gaudreau, Tkachuk, Giordano, Mangiapane, Valimaki...

    I don’t expect anything overly imminent. Seems tough to move big pieces in the middle of the season in normal times, let alone with quarantine, potential for the draft to be pushed back, etc.

    What a self-explanatory take, thanks Elliotte.

    Changes would have been made already if it was that easy.

    covid/quarantine rules really hinder trading with 24/30 teams, and Calgary is still in the race for the playoffs, even though we’ve fallen a lap behind.

    As a jets fan I would be in on any solid RHD on the team if available.

    If I was in charge, Ward and Monahan would be gone.

    I think Monahan's body is falling apart and if we lose Gaudreau his value might plummet. Use a culture change as an excuse.

    I would change the coach before making any huge changes. On paper, the flames should be a decent team. Coming from an Oilers fan.

    was surprised nothing major happened this past off season. Sure sounds like it was not for a lacking of trying.

    I think Denault would be a good target because of this. Not sure Montreal's motivation for moving him though.

    Don't think anything would have happened regardless. They just signed Ward and are paying Peters still. The rope is long for him.

    And for any big trade, it takes more than a few weeks to get it done in the best of circumstances.

    So about the only team that probably would make an impact trade with them and one that they could avoid quarantine issues would be Ottawa. But what exactly is there to be made between the two teams?

    As mentioned big trades are a rarity in a regular year. Now add quarantine and how many teams are really willing to not have a guy for two weeks? Even if CGY finds a team that is willing to make a trade, do they want to be without a key piece for 2 weeks?

    Hard to put a package together but with Burke going to the Pens maybe they come together come the offseason.

    If Calgary is really feeling like they need to change the room, I wonder if theyve taken a hard look at the Canadian Division and decide to sell for the future.

    With The Leafs, Montreal, The Oilers and Winnipeg all being arguably better SO FAR than them, they might decide its time to start a rebuild.

    If thats true, I can see them deciding to move on from Tkachuk, and the best team that I can think of for Tkachuk to go to is none other than, you guessed it, The Ottawa Senators.

    Just think about how much shit the Tkachuk brothers would get up to if they played on the same team. Would it be fun to play against? Hell no. But would it be fun to watch? Hell yes.


    Now you gotta wonder what the price for Tkachuk would be, and if Ottawa would even have the pieces to send. But you have to imagine that Pierre Dorian would be trying his best to pull a Burkie and get the brothers back together.

    Without pissing off too many flames fans

    That last loss to the Oilers was a kick to the groin to the fan base and organization

    I guess it depends on how they view the puck flipping incident and the team in general.

    Are they upset at Matthew for how he reacted? Do they feel like he is draining on all the other players on the team? If so then it makes sense to trade him.

    On the other hand if they are upset at the team not backing up Matthew, then they probably trade the other valuable players on the team ala Monahan or Gaudreau

    could get the largest return, maybe they don't see him as a Flame past his current deal, maybe if the room is Tkachuk vs others it is easier to trade one player than a few.

    I think they should keep Tkachuk and if some of the players want him to tone it down and change how he plays they should deal those players.

    On the other hand, if the Flames beat the Leafs tonight the bandwagon can start to load up again. Plan the parade route!

    The difference between winning and losing is very small, and I don't think it takes much to recover (or fall) in a seven-team division with only intra-divisional play.

    Things could look entirely different for the Flames -- or the Leafs, or any team -- two weeks from now.

    The season is not over yet.

    Ugghh...Just please don't panic and move Tkachuk for "depth". This reeks of Phaneuf 2.0.
