    Flames could look at guys like Smith-Pelley and Ryan Reeves as possible 4th line guys that would fill that role of checker, fighter, protector as well. Wouldn't mind seeing either of them in a Flames jersey, could probably get them cheaper than what Ferland wants

    Smith Pelley played quite well for the Caps in the playoffs. Bounced around a bit from teams to teams. Reaves is actually not a bad player. Years back when there were big heavyweights he was not as effective. Now that tough guys have to be able to play he showed he can play on the 4th line. He is also one of the tougher guys in the league.

    Ferland to me is basically a smaller but slightly faster Oilers era Lucic. Plays well with top line, invisible anywhere else, but on a nice value contract. Weíre still remembering Ferland as he was in the Vancouver playoff series, but that ship has sailed imo and heís topped out where he is. Regardless, heís UFA next year, and I feel like heís going to have a big ask thanks to his numbers this year, and become an anchor contract like Lucicís contract today.

    Itís funny, before he spent a lot of time on the top line, I felt like he would be the magic sauce for Mony and Johnny and be epic, but he proved me wrong with just average play. Not sad to see him go. Maybe oilers will give him a $6x7 next year.
    When Ferland was on his game he was a treat to watch. But that was what, 10% of the time?

    I was a fan but figured he was definitely gone come contract time anyway so oh well

    Pretty good sum to pay. I assume quite a few teams wanted him including Nashville, LV. Would be a good guy to have if the price is reasonable. Team overall is still on the small, non gritty side.

    I hated Maroon when we was with Anaheim and Edmonton but the guy has pretty good hands for a big guy and protects his teammates. Would out of Edmonton is that he is slow. Now as slow as Lucic though.

    Gotta give kudos to Brad Treliving for completely revamping this roster with a big trade and a few key signings, not to mention a new coaching staff. I love it!
    Lineup predictions time!

    Gaudreau - Monahan - Neal
    Tkachuk - Backlund - Lindholm
    Bennett - Jankowski - Czarnik
    Frolik - Ryan - Brouwer/Foo/Hathaway/Lazar

    Giordano - Brodie
    Hanifin - Hamonic
    Kulak/Kylington - Andersson/Stone

    Treliving might have saved his job. This has been a great off-season for Calgary on paper. Wonder who plays backup for Smith this year?

    No job saving if the team doesn't make it out of the first round!

    I'd love to see some great success this year but given history, I'd bet we are 30-40 games into the season and we're still be gonna be sitting saying there's a lot of new players, new coaching system, etc, give them time!! ...I hope I'm wrong though.

    He's certainly given it his all. Hes definitely done a good job of taking the teams biggest weakness and turning it into a position of strength. Will it be enough though, especially if Smith gets injured again. Team pretty much needs to make the second round of the playoffs to save his job imo

    I 100% agree. I think these moves make that much more plausible. Goal tending is definitely still the question mark here.

    This franchise has fooled me many times over the past 10+ seasons with new/revamped rosters that are better then previous seasons on paper.

    So much improved that we had "the best defensive depth in the league" twice and how did that turn out both times? Now people are saying the Flames have the best forward depth in the division/conference? hahhahah!

    Until they start winning consistently they are a middling team that will win some and lose many. Not fooling me again in the summer prior to a new season.

    And a better team in front of him takes a lot of pressure off the goalie. Score a little more, let fewer shots through. Play backup 20 games at least.

    My thoughts exactly lol... this isthe case with every team though, its the nature of hockey, too many variables where there's no control...

    Ditto. Too many factors to really detirmine where a team will end up based on the preseason rankings, trades, signings etc.

    Vegas is the best example, ranked dead last going into last season. Ends up winning the division and going all the way to the cup final.

    In our division, I could see that... conference, highly doubt it

    But that still doesn't translate to anything if the players don't mesh or take forever to hit their stride

    Coaching is a major factor in how a team performs, so I'm glad Gulutzan and crew got canned.
    Verdict is still out on the new regime.
