Kirill Kabanov! I’m geared up that this kid with top 5 talent dropped into the Flames lap!
Oh wait Sutter didn’t say Kabanov?!?!?! Maxwell Reinhart!?!?!?!?!?
What The Fudge!?!??!?!
Let me get this straight. You have no picks in the first two rounds and a Russian kid with all world talent but some questions (he’s a kid) and he wants to play in the NHL! So instead of rolling the dice on a draft that is pretty much a lost cause on a kid who could be the best player on this team in five years you draft Reinhart’s kid?
This is not a knock on Maxwell Reinhart he is a good player that I think will make a good 3rd liner in the NHL in a few years, but come on Darryl! You don’t pass up that skill set in a draft which is already a gong show because of bad trades.
Note to Ken King… Fire Darryl Sutter NOW! Note to Flames ownership… If Ken King won’t do it, then FIRE THEM BOTH!!
So lets recap the Flames draft weekend. Calgary dumped no bad contracts. Calgary didn’t trade up in the draft. Calgary failed to break the mold of drafting third line pluggers and stay at home defensemen.
Consider this my application for the position of General Manager of the Calgary Flames.
Try to have a good one! I know the Islanders staff is!
