Flames Fans jumping ship. Introduction Thread
 
Well, yeah. Interesting twist.

Who are the prospects we are getting, any scouting reports?

Maybe we can get some avatars going to show our support for the Penguins? Flames are #1 in the bandwagon.



Go Pens! Instantly my 2nd favourite team now.

Calgary fans incoming!
 
Hockey has never shocked me as much as it just has, but I think I speak on behalf of quite a few Flames fans that I am incredibly more happy with Iginla going to Pittsburgh. Always wanted a reason to cheer for the Penguins but didn't because it seemed like everyone in the world did.

We are going to be invading your guys' space for a little while, I'm officially like 20% Pens fan now, could you answer a few questions?

- Who to follow on Twitter related to Pens (Players, insiders, writers, reporters, etc)
- What are the lines going to look like?
- Who currently wears the "A"s?
- What does your prospect pool look like?

Any other information you could provide for a new fan?

Oilers fan but from calgary and I always had a lot of respect for iggy, was awesome getting to see him play so many times. I'll actually do a little cheering for them now on the side now that he's no longer a flame.

Welcome aboard!

DouglasQuaid 03-28-2013 12:50 AM

Well, this has been interesting... lemme try this on for size...

Go Pens!

I'm sure I'll get used to it...

Lets win Iggy a cup, no? :yo:

66-29-33 03-28-2013 12:51 AM

Welcome! I have a feeling Iginla will be here for 3 more years at 5M. Shero WILL make room for him.

I Hate Chris Butler 03-28-2013 12:55 AM

I wanted Iginla in Boston.

Just win the ****ing Cup.

if he does, i hope the Flames re-sign him as soon as they possibly can. i'm still on cloud 9, but i feel so bad for the Flames fans over this.

i think Hanowski is ok and i don't know much about Agostino, but in no way is that deal fair for the Flames. i hope they somehow have fantastic careers with Calgary and i hope that late 1st rounder will be something they can build around.

PETRYDISH 03-28-2013 01:01 AM

Edmonton fans too! Win this Edmonton boy a cup! Actually regardless of being from Edmonton or not, he's the most deserving player in the league. Crosby and Iggy together.... *drools*

fetalposition 03-28-2013 01:14 AM

well as a wings fan first and a flames fan second, gonna feel kinda dirty cheering for the pens but seeing as the wings are not contenders this year, I think I will survive. sidenote, how the hell did you guys do this without giving up one of your huge pile of awesome defense prospects, I mean geez how does brendan morrow get a better return? blah feel dirty, good luck.

The Bored Man 03-28-2013 01:15 AM

Any more room on the bandwagon? I'd like to be able to remove this paper bag during the playoffs...even though Iginla was a Flame.

ALI 03-28-2013 01:23 AM

Can i have a scouting report of The 2 prospects.

There's always room!

Lim Ran 03-28-2013 01:27 AM

Totally excited about Flames fans getting behind Pittsburgh for the playoffs. Great, great fanbase.

Sean Monahan 03-28-2013 01:27 AM

another one for the journey :laugh:

let's get Iggy his cup!

Go Pens go!

ps how would Pens fans feel if Iggy left in the off-season?

if the Pens win the Cup and Iginla re-signs with Calgary, i'd be happy. i'm probably in the minority, though.

https://twitter.com/penguins (official)
https://twitter.com/RealDanaHeinze (equipment guy)
https://twitter.com/malkin71_ (malkin)
https://twitter.com/pgshelly (sort of beat reporter)
Don't follow Rossi, seriously

Lines? Have to wait and see, on that one ... there's a thread, I think

A's? Malkin and Orpik/Kunitz alternate

Prospects? There's a sticky :)

Welcome aboard :)

1. Don't necessarily like them all, but... Dejan Kovacevic, Rob Rossi, Josh Yohe, Dave Molinari, and plenty others... sorry, I don't know their handles, but they should pop up in a search...

2. Just my guesses:

Kunitz-Sid-Iggy
Morrow-Geno-Neal
Cooke-Sutter-Dupuis
Glass-Adams/Vitale/Jeffrey-Kennedy ..... but more likely one or two of them get traded

3. Geno and Kunitz/Orpik

4. Strong on D (Poulliot, Harrington, Despres, Bortuzzo, Dumoulin, Maatta), weak on offense (Bennett, Blueger)

Depends on if we get the cup or not. :sarcasm:

Skobel24 03-28-2013 01:33 AM

So, I was working on my Bruins/Flames avatar. Glad I didn't add the Bruins spokes tonight.

tmurfin 03-28-2013 01:33 AM

Jumping on the bandwagon, can't wait to see Iggy in the playoffs!!! Go Pens! Go Iggy!

Jules Winnfield 03-28-2013 01:35 AM

Welcome Calgary fans! Can't wait for the playoff ride we're going to take this season. Lets hope both of our cities hoist the cup this year!

Sign in Pittsburgh or sign in Calgary, either one of those is totally cool.

i agree. if we win the cup, we'll all chip in to have him ride back to Calgary on a horse-drawn golden carriage traversing a highway of rose petals.

Xelstyle 03-28-2013 01:37 AM

Best of luck Pittsburgh. We're cheering with you as well now.
