In all honesty, every Flames fan I know has come to that conclusion a long time ago. Everyone I talk to gave up on this group, a couple of years ago. Oh sure, it was nice to see them put up a bit of a run last season, but that didn't mean they were good. They are a mess right now, to say the least. Most of us Flames fans know this, and have come to terms with it. Unfortunately there is no quick fix. This is going to take years to straighten out, and that's assuming that management makes the right moves from here on in. It's a tall order, but that's were they sit. It's sad to say, but a lock out at this point, doesn't look all that bad.
What's your gut on the whole Iginla situation Expat? Do you really believe he'll finish his career there? Or at least complete his current contract with his Flames? Or do you feel there is a chance Feaster could try and move him at some point? I know Jerome is going to say all the right things, as he's one of the classiest guys the organization has ever had, but you have to think there's a part of him that doesn't want to miss out on a chance to contend while he's still near the top of his game.
