    What sense does this make for the Flames? Zero need for Lindgren, not that he has much value and Scherback sure ain't worth Bennett.

    No, I would prefer if fans of other teams would stop trying to trade off Bennett because every one of these threads is exactly the same.

    Opposition fan: Bennett is a bust
    Flames fan: No he's not, he's only 22 and has carved out an NHL niche
    Opposition fan: Something something Yakupov
    Flames fan: Points out difference between Bennett and Yak
    repeat

    I am amused how much value some are still putting on Lindgren

    Poor trade for Flames

    Bennett doesn't have a lot of value in a trade, 3rd liners who haven't made progress in a while aren't necessarily in high demand. I think the Flames shouldn't trade him at all at this point and hope he can find his former groove with the new coaches. If he still doesn't produce, then it's probably time to move on.

    Why did you quote me? What does this have to do with what I said? I never addressed his value.

    Every Bennett thread is started by a fan of another team, we don't want to trade him. But other fan bases see a guy with potential and think we'll agree to some bull**** trade suggestion. It's getting tiresome.

    Bennett to Montreal eh? I like it, it’s original, (never been debated before) and I’m sure Calgary fans will be happy to give him away for spare parts since he’s a bust. I predict this thread will go well.

    Yakupov during his later days with the Oilers was more valuable than Bennett is right now.

    Understandable. [MOD] This is a reasonable proposal, but it's understandable that the Flames are saying no.

    He's worth more to the Flames than to anyone trading for him.

    It's like my old N64. Sure, I could sell it for $25 but I'd rather have it more than anything I can buy with $25

    I do think Bennett would be better off starting fresh with another organization. I like him more than Domi. Calgary's not going to give him away.

    It makes zero sense for the Habs just as much as for the Flames. We don't need another winger or fringe center on our middle six, we got Domi the case is closed for now.

    Which shows what you know about Bennett is somewhere between zero and none. Your ridiculous hot takes don't piss us off dude, they just make you look like you have no idea what you are talking about. It's amazing that you hate the Flames so much that you are willing to make yourself look stupid just to take your pathetic little jabs.

    It's a terrible proposal dude. A piss poor goalie prospect that we don't need and a guy that is an AHLer at 22 and can't crack one of the worst rosters in the NHL is not a reasonable proposal.

    Downplaying the other team's players doesn't usually help your case.

    No he was not . Only fans that are blind would say this . Yakupov was trade for dog crap because that how he played . Let me guess you will argue his rookie season was great . I counter his rookie season was also crap . He put up lots of points over the last 8 games or so once playoff teams were resting their players . Yakubust did not know what the meaning of defence was . Bennett at worst will be a good defensive forward

    Please tell me where I'm wrong.

    Let me guess Sherback, who is the same age as Bennett has "potential"..... You know the same reason a package like that is not even worth considering for the Flames.
