<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Alfie11</b></div><div>Problem with Simon is I think he’ll be the 13th forward (JG-SM-EL MT-MB-AM ML-SB-DD JN-DR-JL leaves Simon out) and if he’s in the lineup then Nordstrom, an actual PKer, is likely out. So yeah, I would like to see Dube step into that role, he’s fast, works hard, and has nice hands, and because he likely isn’t going to be in the top 6, the more we can get him out there the better. Not taking penalties also works lol but that isn’t going to change at this stage in their careers.

Which coach you like more is up for debate but they’re both established and have decent success in the playoffs (Gallant went to finals, Boudreau went a couple rounds p much every year). I don’t think either is really elite (ngl the only coaches I consider elite are Trotz and maybe Cooper lol) but both are experienced and not a first time head coach which is better now that we’re in our window regardless of who we picked. I just think management doesn’t like spending money on coaches and I don’t agree with that philosophy, especially at a crucial time (we can’t afford to waste any of the next 2-3 years, gotta go deep while we’re competitive).</div></div>

A lot of Flames fans have the opinion that the Flames ownership doesn't like to pay for coaches, but Peters was a quite expensive coach, IIRC he was making $3m in Carolina before coming over. SO I'm not sure I buy that, but we all have to remember the list of coaches to repeat as Cup Champs, is extremely short. So for all we know the coach matters even less than we think, lol.

I also think you are right about Simon being the #13, but with injuries he'll still be in the lineup alot.
