They still have an option for salvation in hiring Iggy and wait 'til Jaromir puts himself in the starting lineup.

Classic Canadian hockey fans losing their minds after their team loses (or wins, Tuna) one game.

They drafted a few good pieces, never got goaltending, and stopped rebuilding. They like to think Treliving is a genius for signing vets because their rebuild is done and yet Benning is a Moran but hey Benning, nor the fans, think our rebuild is done.


Yeah they probably shouldn't be laughing at us, while we should realize that our "rebuild" already resembles theirs.

Reluctance to admit a rebuild was required, no franchise player drafted, reliance on veterans, overrating the prospect pool, lack of goaltending... glass houses, and all that.

Nenshi wins third term as Calgary's Mayor. Right wingnuts take to twitter to denounce the victory, led by Flames media relations guy who calls his victory worse than Trump's. Flames ownership invested a lot into trying to defeat Nenshi with the aid of Bettman.

Wonder if they will come back to the negotiating table or follow through on their relocation threat.

Loving the meltdown in calpuke. Fire Glen, fire Treliving, waive half the team. Only one draft pick in the first two rounds over the next two years. Smith is their best player. They can't fathom that we are ahead of them and are terrified that Edmonton will soon catch them.

It's like they suddenly realized they have no depth and have pissed away a ton of picks banking on the current core.

For now I will enjoy the misery for I know how swiftly fortunes can change :oops:
