What are NHL fans saying about the Calgary Flames signing Sam Honzek

nice signing, but he will not be playing for the Calgary Flames this year. He needs more time.

Hopefully this pick pans out and Honzo can become a star and not a bust.

Don’t think Honzek will hit those performance bonuses. I am hoping he does but I doubt it.
