I thought about checking this out & finally went for it.

I've checked a few theme threads & it seems interesting as all teams are represented. The off-season trade reactions should be good as we see the other team's fan take on it.
thats what I like about this place, its not as homer-centric as cf.com

They could stand to tighten up security a bit though. Sometimes it seems like they don't really take it very seriously at all, at both places I mean.

Hey there FF.

When/How did you start following the Flames?
1996. I was 9 years old and idolized a teenaged Jarome Iginla who led the world juniors in scoring that year, helping Canada take home the gold.
Favourite Flame? Contradictory to my statement above, I currently have no favorite Flames player. All are expendable in my eyes, as long as it gets the team closer to Lord Stanley.

Hi guys,

I've been posting here a couple of days, and thought I'd introduce myself.

My name's William, I grew up in Calgary and live in Victoria. I pride myself on watching every Flames game on hideous streams, whether or not I can see the puck.

When/How did you start following the Flames?
The 2010 olympics got me into hockey and then I watched the Heritage Classic where the Flames won 4-0 and that had me hooked. My dad also lived in Calgary and was a flames fan which influenced me as well. I was really a passive fan though until the 2011-2012 season. Yes, I am a newbie.
Favourite Flame?
Jarome Iginla for obvious reasons (all-time). Right now it would have to be Brodie.
Favourite Flame Prospect?
Baertschi, Jankowski right after.
How long have you been on HF Boards?
Just under a year.

When/How did you start following the Flames?
Being from Ontario, and force-fed Leafs hockey from a young age, I gravitated towards the Flames during the '04 run (when they served as "Canada's team"); happened to move out west the following year and was lucky enough to catch them play a bunch during my time there, including Theo's preseason comeback (when he nearly blew the roof off the 'Dome scoring that shootout winner) and the Heritage Classic with my son
Favourite Flame?
Iginla all-time, though I was always a fan of Eric Nystrom's game; GlenX, Backstrom, and McGratz
Favourite Flame Prospect?
Sven Baertschi, and whoever they pick this year (Monahan/Lindholm, Shinkaruk/Pulock, Rychel??)
How long have you been on HF Boards?
I've followed HF for a couple years now (has ALWAYS been my absolute best source for any hockey-related info) but haven't posted much until recently.. With three 1sts in a deep draft, guys like Brodie and Baertschi showing promise, and the surprise success of some of their goaltending prospects, the Flames' offseason (and the offseason in general) shaping up to be one of the more interesting ones in history. This is the time of year I always look forward to.. I'm totally the type of guy who'd sim the season in GM mode to work the draft lol

Okay I'm gonna post in here to ensure that people don't think I'm a Bruin troll. The B's are my first team (because of Marco Sturm ), but I follow the Flames closely and try to catch as many games as I can (it's difficult because games start at 3 AM CET and I already have many short nights because of the bruins, so I usually catch 10-15, 20 at most if I'm lucky).

Anyway...

Age: 19
When/How did you start following the Flames? I got into hockey with the game NHL 2005, and they always have the last SC matchup as the default match, so that time the lightning at home and flames on the road. Being the european I am I thought the home team was on the left- and chose the flames. I was playing with them, but didn't follow the actual NHL

In 2007 I started to get interested in the real sport, and discovered my fav player Marco Sturm was traded to the B's so I became a fan of theirs, but remained a soft.spot for the flames. As my NHL watching grew stronger, the flames established themselves as my "girlfriend" team out west.

Favourite Flame?
Iggy is my favourite player, other than that Cammy and Jay-bo
Favourite Flame Prospect? Sven, but I hope Johny Gadreau becomes MSL 2.0. Such an enthusiastic kid.

discovered it in 2011

Nystrom's not even with the club any more and wasn't here for a long period of time, either which make me surprised.

Not Glencross?
You share a name, a home province... within 2 years of each other in age...

Just kidding though, not going to tell you who your favourite Flame should be.

When/How did you start following the Flames?
I came out with a Flames Jersey on! ... In all seriousness, as a newborn. My father would watch Flames games with me in his arms. I really started to get interested in hockey when I finally understood it better, around the year 2000. I understood enough about hockey to appreciate the Flames run in '04 with decent knowledge.

Favourite Flame?
Childhood role-model, like most children at my age who were CGY fans, was Iginla. I've got an old #24 Jersey with Iginla on it, meant for newborns. I've also got his #12 Jersey in both the old design and new design.

Favourite Flame Prospect?
It's a toss-up between Monahan and Baertschi. For now, I'm going to go with Baertschi.

How long have you been on HF Boards?
Since, well, now. Skobel24 convinced me.
