Default What was your most memorable moments of the 17-18 NHL season?

For me a few stick out from the past season-

1) Jagr scoring live in person, It's a goal I won't forget. Being in the crowd it was really buzzing when ever he touched the puck, when he netted it. Loudest its been in a good while since the 15 playoffs.

2) Ovi lifting the Cup - I don't think he's let go of it since winning it.

3) Seeing the entire hockey community rally around Humboldt. It was heartwarming.

4) BT Signing Jagr - the buildup and hype was unreal going into the season.
Even though it didn't work out - I am ecstatic that he played for Calgary.

5) Finally winning at the Honda Center.

Oilers Stanley Cup finalists hype and then miss the playoffs.

Please repeat next year.

Brodie's four point game
Smith and Rittich's handful of GodMode games
Jankowski's array of beautiful goals
the perfect chemistry between Ferland, Gaudreau, and Monahan.

Non Flames related:

The Avalanche vs Blues win and get in game. It was good to see a team that struggled so badly the year before get some success. The game was tense and the crowd was into it. It was the most fun non playoff game I saw last season.


Flames related:

Most definitely winning at the Honda Centre. A close second was beating the Oilers late in the season. It was an entertaining game for what was a disappointing season by that point.

Winning in Anaheim and getting to see Jagr live in a Flames jersey twice. That's about it for Flames moments. Speaks volumes about the season.

Pretty much this right here. Besides the Anaheim win and seeing Jagr score in a Flames jersey, the only other good part of last season was when it finally ended and Glen Gulutzan was shown the door.

- Winning in Anaheim
- Jagr signing and subsequent 'meh' play
- Smith playing awesome until getting injured and then being pretty average
- Seeing the Flames live and absolutely ####ting the bed against the Sharks losing 5-1 sometime around the end of March and that to me was the death knell on the season

Giving up on the team and the season. I completely stopped watching games. Hadn't missed a game since 04 until this season.

Stopped watching the flames entirely for the first time ever this past year.

Started watching the Knights and got hooked. WOW what an inaugural season.
The entertainment value alone in the playoffs in Vegas was insane.

We need to generate that kind of love for our team. More loud music , more lights, more hype......take the reigns off of Willy and let him play all the music he wants and make the dome noisy instead of a library.

Prediction is of a very memorable season coming up. I see lots of healthy competition for the vets by guys who are close to being ready to make the jump.

Coming back from a 3-0 deficit to roar back against the Jets, in our home opener.
