    Yes. Easily. They would have won those cups with any other goalie. His career save percentage is below .900 and his gaa above 3.30

    That's debatable. Fuhr was really clutch.

    Iggy carried a weak Flames team for over a decade. Fuhr played goal for the highest scoring team in the history of the game. Not trying to take anything away from Fuhr , but shutting the door when your team is winning 6-5 isnt exactly the same.

    Game 7 of 1987 Finals. Fuhr was clutch. Flyers were up 1-0. On the PP. Fuhr shuts the door. And makes a few key saves after that before Edmonton ties it.

    On that night he outplayed the Conn Smythe Winner.

    How does a guy who hasn't played a single game of NHL hockey get 925k with Bonus!

    Then you have guys like Joe Thornton get signed for only 700k.

    I can't believe this.

    Leafs get two proven NHL players- including a future Hall of Famer- in Vesey and Thornton for less than question marks Lafreniere and Byfield. Dubas GOAT.

    He is definitely elite physically but doesnt have the same head for the game as Lafreniere. He looked lost at times at the World Juniors where he should have dominated other kids his age with his physical toolkit, but he didnt.

    But he is. Iginla was awesome. But Malkin is just better. Like objectively better in any kind of stat you want to consider

    Jarome Iginla Stats | Hockey-Reference.com
    Evgeni Malkin Stats | Hockey-Reference.com

    It isn't putting down Iginla to say that Malkin has had a better career than him.

    No disrespect to Malkin as I said in the first post he will 100% make the HoF, but points totals are fairly skewed in Malkin's favor. EM has played 2nd line center behind the #1 player of the entire generation and is the 4th best Penguin of all time. Iginla played with far inferior players during his career as a Flames with the exception of his first 3 seasons with Fleury and Housley, JI is also the undisputed best Flames player of all time.

    To clarify, I am not saying Iggy is better, just that Malkin is not a clear better player.

    The Kings are like Ottawa of the west. They have a plethora of exciting young players to keep an eye on. Byfield fits that bill.

    I see Rangers fans are out in full force again, whining about people who think Byfield might become better, all that in a topic about Byfield.


    Dont worry, Vilardi will be better than both.

    I think Byfield will end up better than any player currently on either the Canucks or Flames roster, what a great talent he is... hopefully he can reach his max potential playing there. If he progresses like I think does this season, I expect the Kings to edge out Calgary and the Canucks for the final wild card spot. With a young star rejuvenating Kopitar and Doughty will be a big boost for them and they will be extremely tuff to beat.

    Not sure I agree. From what I see he is well rounded and physically gifted. He doesn't seem to be a Laine one trick pony who needs to learn the game still.

    That said, I could be 100% wrong as my assessment isn't nearly as deep as many here

    Reebok is just CCM now right? So phew, outdated voodoo doll!


    Depending on how the dates end up lining up I think most of us are assuming he'll start the year in LA and then head to the WJCs and maybe to juniors from there.


    Dude rocks bow ties instead of regular ties with his dress outfits.

    I generally agree on Lafreniere's head for the game but I just think that's because his hockey brain is that good rather than QB's being deficient in any way, and I think people are laying way too much into Byfield's WJC as the only indicator of who he is as a player.

    And I think we'll see that this year when he's playing against bigger opposition--which imo will actually be better for him--and with better support around him as well.
