<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ColonelX</b></div><div>I mean Hanafin and Tanev are worth their money but why does Anderson makes a million per year more than dudes like Chiarot and Edmundson? Is he that good? (Not watching much of Flames but I didn't notice an almost 5m$ guy when he was playing us.</div></div>
Hanifin and Andersson will be the top pairing next year and you'd hope Tanev can do the same for Valimaki this year that he did for Hanifin last year.
Andersson is an interesting one cause he signed a deal in a really good year and it looks very overpaid at this point, he had a down season last year playing with Giordano against McDavid, Matthews, Draisaitl for most of the season. I think he is worth his contract it just isn't showing yet, it will be a really good looking deal in year 4, 5, 6 I believe.
I honestly think the Canadian division was the worst thing to happen to the Flames, you spend so long building a team to compete in the Pacific division with the California teams and Vegas that always ice a big thumping roster, to switch the game completely and try compete with high flying teams like the Leafs, Oilers x10, Jets and even the Senators that are uber talented is a crazy change. Andersson will thrive in the Pacific against those top guys, he plays a really solid heavy game.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ColonelX</b></div><div>I mean Seth Jones could be quite something if you're not on his NTC ... But can this offense really be playoff caliber without Tkatchuk, Marner and Hyman (Let say you're staying as is up front)?</div></div>
That would be nearly 20 million dollars between Hanifin, Tavnev, Andersson and Jones with Valimaki and a 6 D still needing to get a contract, it would be a hell of a D core but the forwards would be scary bad, Calgary would need to address a few more issues if that were the case, I think the Hyman signing would be a good start but a top 6 of Gaudreau (could be gone in a year), Monahan (probably gone in a year or two), Lindholm, Hyman, Mangiapane and Dube(?) would not be playoff caliber.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Lunatik</b></div><div>Olofsson is only more productive because he gets top PP minutes at ES he was less productive despite playing more. In Calgary Olofsson wouldn't get top PP minutes, thus he'd end up being less productive overall. As for "possession", I don't give two ****s until they start measuring it in time like it should be.
At best it is a lateral move with up to double the cap hit, It's a bad move, but I'm not surprised you'd support a bad trade.</div></div>
So you'd argue that Olofsson's increased playing time is the reason he has significantly less giveaways last season? Points per 60, Olofsson still out produced. Over the last three seasons Olofsson out produced Dube at even strength in less games, and significantly out produced him on the power play, it's almost as if a team in the bottom third of the league in PP% like the Flames could use a guy who plays a ton of PP time, would be far better than Dube, Lucic, Backlund on the second unit.
Dube's stats could even be inflated compared to Olofsson cause he didn't have to play in Buffalo, this statistically, even the basic ones that you can understand was Olofsson's worst season and Dube's best, Olofsson was better..
The CapFriendly circle jerk Flames fans will continue to wank though!
