    Calgary Flames Official Thread

    Thoughts on the deadline aquisitions? I'm a little underwhelmed even though I wouldn't have minded selling, lol. A good buddy of mine is a huge Hawks fan and thinks a third-rounder for Gustafsson is quite an underpayment. Seems like he could be a good addition to the PP and decent if paired with...

    That floorplan look pretty spacious compared to some other residence buildings I've seen. I lived in a ~980 sqft four-bed unit with a full kitchen a couple years ago and it tested every ounce of patience I had lol

    Count me in on that. I love the way this is turning out - that white is striking!

    Calgary | Enzo | 27m | 6s | Arlington Street | DAAS

    I stayed at the Varscona Hotel on Whyte Ave when I went up to Edmonton last summer and having that unimpeded access to a bunch of great bars and restaurants as a total newcomer to the city was awesome. Took all the work out of navigating and searching for a good place to eat/drink. I think this...

    I mean, I couldn't even be mad. Reminds me of this classic Beaverton article:

    Calgary Restaurant Thread

    A friend of mine has been to the Inglewood location and raves about it. His #1 Mexican place.

    Calgary Flames Official Thread

    Really liked the fact that Peters allowed the younger guys some ice time after running up the score so much last night. First line is on a tear! Tkachuk makes a strong case for my blank retro... I haven't been this excited watching Flames hockey in a long time. Repeat on Friday?

    Calgary's Potential 2026 Winter Olympic Bid

    Well, it looks to be a 'No'. Thoughts? I know this forum is far more sympathetic to the thought of hosting than any other online community.

    General Construction Updates

    I was in Hamburg last year and didn't even realize I was walking in a bike lane until some stern bell rings caught my attention. Same deal, there are red pavers that designate a cycle track (at least where I was staying).,10.0940134,44m/data=!3m1!1e3

    Fantasy Geography/Politics

    I think y'all would get a kick out of the Republic of Western Canada group on Facebook. It has about 30,000 members, all concerned with making sure BC to Manitoba is its own nation in the future. It's private so I won't link it but it's good for a laugh. There's a small minority that takes the...

    Calgary Flames Official Thread

    After some thinking, I'm not too cheesed about this move. Sad to see the two gone, but I think Lindholm can slot in nicely on the top line and @Meikkhaell is totally right on Hanifin being a stud. Also, they're RFAs. Who's to say either Hamilton or Ferland will stay with Carolina or that Fox...

    Calgary Bike Lanes and Bike Paths

    I've been biking around Saskatoon for the last couple of months but I've ridden in downtown Calgary before. I'm not particularly concerned as long as they follow the rules or accommodate people that want to pass. I have worse problems with people who ride way too slow in the lanes than I've had...
