Well i wouldn't want to change the 3rd line if Dube keeps playing the way he has. I would say 4th line to start and see where it goes from there.

Tkachuk-Lindholm-Mangiapane
Gaudreau-Monahan-Backlund
Lucic-Ryan-Dube
Option 1: Bennett-Jankowski-Czarnik/Frolik/Rieder
Option 2: Frolik/Rieder/Czarnik-Bennett-Frolik/Rieder/Czarnik

Tons of options with the 3rd line emerging

He elevated a bit, but so does Ovechkin on every hit.

I thought MacDermid hit on Gaudreau was more predatory. The puck was in the net and he followed through on Gaudreau not caring where the play went.

Flames now tied for the 2nd WC spot, 1 point out of 3rd in the Pacific, and only 5 back of 1st. It'll be tough, but with a really good run over the next few weeks here, I think these guys could very possibly retake the division.

By the calculated cowardice of my buddies who took me out drinking, I've missed this game, the game I really didn't want to miss. Checked in to thank zamler's post. Did Gaskal post ATL yet? Please help me out here, I don't know how much longer I can hold on staring at the monitor...

Lots of talk on here tonight about the evolution of hitting. To my memory, there has only been one major change to hitting in the modern NHL, and that is the head can't be the principle point of contact. Everything else is kind of irrelevant here. As much as some people want the physicality of the sport to be continually toned down to a point where it is virtually unrecognizable, there is simply no indication that that will happen, and from this viewer's POV, thank god.

Upward motion of the shoulder-legal
Hitting someone who is not suspecting it-legal
Hitting someone without the internalized intent to only separate the person from the puck-legal
Hitting someone and having a mean look on your face-legal

If Rinaldo gets suspended, it will be because they have an angle where he popped his head and/or making it a reputation call.

Milan Lucic has 7 points in his first 29 games as a Calgary Flame.

It took James Neal 33 games to reach that mark last season and 39 games to surpass it.

I can't take the Flames seriously. Thwey looked like dog **** far too long. Good teams don't look hideous for 6-8 straight games. Good teams are consistent for the most part.
Spoiler!



The Oilers have looked like garbage for the last about 15 games games since their hot start.
