1/7 Game Thread, Flames @ Hurricanes - 7PM EDT Puck Drop


Recommended Posts

Nice response by the boys after Calgary made it a one goal game.  We need to play better tomorrow with Florida coming to town.

Hopefully we get all the calls since we are at home like the Panthers did in our first game with them.

Hope Bear is OK.

You could tell Calgary was gonna score first they busted ass at the beginning while we didn’t really get our game set until the end of the first. But you could tell we were intent on controlling that game. I can’t say enough about our grinders. Staal may not have a goal(goals this season) but his tempo was insanely good last night. Fast is just so underrated, that dude is everywhere and always in perfect position. Lorentz grind was good. Nino is a fugging possession god. 
 

I hate to say it but Staal probably has to be the odd man out when contracts come up again. We gotta keep Fast and Nino.

Staal is gonna be out. At this point, his production is replaceable and his contract would be too heavy when we can pay the other guys on the roster. His value is purely leadership and experience here.

He'll go to a team in need of a solid vet 3rd line center and give some solid play for a couple years before hanging it up. I'll be sad to see him go, but it's time I think.

KK is definitely a C replacement for the future for either Tro or Staal. Could see that when we made that move. 
 

The issue with Staal is his NTC and the he still has 1 year left. We have Fast locked until Staal’s contract is up so that’s a nonissue. Tro or Nino is what it’s going to come down to this off-season. Nino is gonna have some big suitors too, probably even more so than Tro.
