Lol I love north division fans. That division is utter crap.
If that were true, you'd think it would have come up once or twice.
Toronto is the only team that would compete for top 3 in our division.
And yet, like most purely troll comments, you didn't address what he said.
Lol it has, I see it all the time. The 3rd and 4th place teams in the north would struggle to be 5th or even 6th in the central.
Toronto is a great team, with great talent, and has as good a chance as anyone to win The Cup.
That being said, The Cats, Bolts, and Canes can say the EXACT same thing, and they are all in same division...can The North boast that?
Now that we have sufficiently strayed off topic enough, lets get back to the real subject, please.
it is crap. I’m Canadian viewer who cheers for Panthers. Not even close what Division is stronger 1 thru 5.
Yeah, no one cares about shitty the north division is. And there's plenty of threads about that elsewhere.
This topic all about how terrible the Flames organization is and how they traded away the center they've spent the last 20 or so years looking for.
Mentioned it already in the trade thread but...36 shots in 9 games says a lot about his chances of keeping this up. In my experience, shots on goal gives a good indicator of sustainability when using a smaller sample size.
I thought Taylor Hall was supposed to score more than Bennett.
North divisions crap.
Yea, the shooting, making the simple/smart/high percentage passes, doesnt get cute with his passes, forechecks, engages in board battles, is adept at predicting a play's development, lays out hits, will facewash a defenseman after a net scrum, will park in front of the net, has speed to play with anyone in the lineup, is counted on for the PP and PK, takes critical faceoffs, has chemistry with damn near anyone, will fight, will talk shit.
I havent seen a player change the complexion of the Panthers to this degree since Jagr.
The Panthers were an impotent, fragile team before Bennett's arrival. They have been very "different" since.
It's bad form to try and get the last word in, and then immediately plead to end the discussion with an air of superiority. My initial post didn't warrant a response at all, but I underestimated the fragility of a number of posters.
Fixed that for you.
100pts in the books for Sam next year.
The Panthers just did this with Vincent Trocheck.
Wasn't a good fit for Q, was playing uninspired hockey, coming off a significant injury.
Carolina traded for him and he's magically good again.
Its a combination of different things, not simply Calgary coaches aren't good or their GM isn't good....
Although Tallon definitely isn't the greatest
60-65 points looks very realistic right now.
Vinny looks rejuvenated but he is not on a new career high points pace like Sam is.
If there was one coach who could get Bennet playing to his potential, it's Quenville. He is one of the best with younger players.
Impossible, it’s 100% on the player if they don’t reach their potential, square pegs can fit in round holes if they work harder at it and if not they didn’t deserve it, player development is overrated
That’s what I’ve been told anyways
Of course they can
You just need a big enough hammer
That you Torts?
Trocheck had a terrible start in Carolina: just 2 points in 7 games last year. He didn't take on until this season.
I figured he was a near bust for good. Glad to be wrong tho. Might be less glad if I was a Flames fan lol
