Watching who the Canucks took was very enjoyable for me as well.

Based on what?

Failing that, why not go with the flow and join in the vitriol? You can say literally anything about Flames players, management and fans here without being infracted or even disagreed with! Why stop with pronouncing Jankowski a bust less than a day after he's drafted? Spend all day making fat jokes about Feaster! Make racist comments towards Iginla! Hell, even insinuate that Jerry Sandusky is the fall guy for Miikka Kiprusoff the kiddy-fiddler! Anything goes here at Hate the Flames Boards.
Oh please, stop playing the victim card, at CP they spend as much time trashing the Oilers and Canucks as talking about the Flames. I mean "Happy Carolina Day" 6 years after? Pathetic.

I feel bad for Calgary fans on HF. Most of them are rational and don't really feed the trolls. The cesspool on Calgarypuck is pretty entertaining. Watching the whole Tim Erixon saga was hilarious. The Rangers-Flames GDT had some good laughs too.

Seriously? Hall scoring 49G and 95P in 126 games hasn't proved anything? Eberle is already a 30 goal scorer and had 75+ points in his sophomore year. Nugent-Hopkins had 52 points in 62 games in his rookie season when his critics insisted he wasn't ready for the NHL. Really? They haven't proven anything?

There has been absolutely no progress since the oilers cup run
In his first season RNH took an awful PP to top 3 in the league. They improved by 12 points and had 7 more wins. They will be better this year with the addition of some Russian kid who broke the junior scoring records of some guy name Stamkos.

Quote:
sure they have had nice picks but that was a result of being really ******.
That's sort of the point of a rebuild.

Quote:
Mark my words, in 3 years the oilers will still have not made the playoffs.
If you right - though I really, really doubt it - the Flames will be right there with us on the outside looking in.

Quote:
You won't get there with defence and goaltending like the oilers have now.
Such a lazy cliché response. We got some potential top 4 defense being seasoned right now.

Jesus, this thread has deteriorated something fierce. Oilers and Canucks fans laughing for no apparent reason. Classic.

Maybe this should just be locked up now.

CalgaryPuck is the cesspool of the Internet and every logical hockey fan knows it. The fans here aren't nearly as bad.

I don't think Jankowski was a terrible pick, just not a gamble I would have made with Maata on the board. In the second, absolutely.

and worth the risk. This guy could be the center the Flames have been looking for for a long time.

I'm excited to see how this guy does in Dubuque this year.

I would reconsider that

Lol this thread.

Let's sum it up.

Calgary fans defend or hate Feaster.

Oilers fans think it's 1979.

Canucks fans are Canucks fans.

Nothing to see here.

Personally, I don't see the problem with this pick. If they're confident, it is because someone they trust saw something.

I won't hate. I like the kid's skill set. Give him a couple years. I could easily see him playing productive top six hockey. If he makes it, that's better than what a lot of teams get out of their first rounder. After pick 5, the players are hardly a sure thing, nevermind a first year contributor.

I like the wait and see approach. At the 21st pick, all you're looking for is someone who's going to play productive NHL games.

Yet the media (Sportsnet, The Sun ect) go there to pick the brains of the Flames fans, get them to do on air interviews and have them in various chats and media events.

Cesspool indeed.

Right because those media outlets impart so much credibility.

Jankowski is top notch, likely a top 5 pick next year if he was born a few days later. Flames had a good draft

It's absolutely hysterical reading the Flames fans at Calgarypuck. They think they have a good shot at being a championship team in the next 3-4 years with their deadly future top-6 of:

Baertschi - Jankowski - Gaudreau
Ferland - Reinhart - Nemisz

Watch out rest of the NHL, that is SCARY

He was picked 131st in the OHL draft same year the flames took him in the 1st. Has that ever happened before?

My biggest problem with the Jankowski pick is that he played high school hockey. Now that might be great in Minnesota but it's been said over and over that he had the weakest competition of any first rounder and is basically a project. If you're looking for a #1 center, does he HAVE to come along after Iginla has moved on?

Here is a quality article from Calgary Puck: http://www.calgarypuck.com/2012/06/f...th-conviction/

Quote:
I admire conviction, even if I completely disagree with the decision being made. Passionate, confident people make good decisions. Nervous nellies waffle and stack the chairs to make sure they don’t look foolish.
I know many of you will go "haha calgary puck is terrible and full of homers". Whatever. You're missing out on a quality piece due to your arrogance.

^"Quality" and "Calgarypuck" should never be used in the same sentence. Even most of the regular Flames fans here think it's a joke. And bragging about Roger Millions and Eric Francis posting there doesn't help your cause.
