Reddit and subreddits can be alright, the quality seems to change on a team by team basis

It seems like it is entirely made up of posters who hate CP. Lots of anger. And lots of hot takes.

It is like they gathered all the worst hockey fans on one site intentionally.

I got suspended from there a long time ago for arguing against the idea that Lowe was one the most respected hockey minds in the NHL. There was zero tolerance for opposing opinions and I think history is on my side now.

You may have to go to Facebook groups.

However, be warned. Somebody mentioned that HF is full of young immature kids. I don't know. I joined a couple of Flames Facebook groups and it's full of middle age adults who are more immature than young kids!

HFboards is probably the most active since its the forum for all the fan bases in the league.

Hfboards/Oil/Leafs/Habs/Sens are a fun visit to see what their up to. Surprisingly the flames sub board is the least active of all Canadian teams. I suppose because you're all here?

As far as my Canucks my go to sites are Reddit/CDC/Hfboards in that order.

Someone here mentioned "Canucks Corner" I didn't even know that existed.

CDC is the most active main team's message board. with 93k users, 5.5m posts and 207k topics. the most online we had was 5.5k. During peak season it averages like 300+ users online and as i type this right now it has 131 users online on a Sunday with no hockey news.

My fav place is Canucks reddit. 63k users, active, meme game is second to none and this is where i get most of my latest Canucks trade/signing rumours.

Hfboards Canucks is also active but i avoid that place cause its mostly negative bitter Gillis fan boys who whine about everything JB does.

CDC and hfboard Canucks have like a civil war going lol.

CP is where i get updates behind enemy lines and hot takes from Dino.

and HF Oil is fun to visit? maybe for a laugh, Flames fans don't go there because its run by Oiler fans who censor all things anti Oiler or Pro Calgary

It's always fun, because Oilers fans are always hilariously delusional—not altogether dissimilar than you.

I’ve used this site as my main source of general hockey news for 16 years. It’s so good I just lurked the forum without an account. I know I’m not the only one who did that for a period of time. So good. Like Cali said, nothing like it.

I think that's Facebook in general, not limited to groups

They chose an appropriate name for that site didn't they?

I once had a long, drawn out argument with a poster on HF who said Chris Butler was a top-4 defenseman on any team in the league. I haven't been been back since. Poor quality people over there.

I get all my news and rumours from this site.

Are there other independent Calgary Flames boards?

I loathe Reddit because its format scares and confuses me and I'm cold and there are wolves after me...
