When Rats gets your humour it is time to send jokes to Reader's Digest.

Ya know I don't like to kick sand in a fallen team but I just gotta share this tidbit.
via: Jimmy_Riarh

Crashing and burning is an understatement for the Flames.. 2018 picks traded:
-1st: to NYI (Hamonic)
-2nd: to NYI (Hamonic)
-3rd: to Arizona (Smith, if #Flames miss playoffs this season)
-5th: to Arizona (Stone)
I haven't been following them, but since Smith was injured for quite a bit, I'm assuming that was their demise?
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Something's gotta give. That team had high expectations this year.

Could Burkie/Treliving possibly survive missing the playoffs when they're going into the next two drafts with 2 picks in the first 3 rounds?

One of them will. But I doubt it’s the guy who made those trades.

Yeahno, Smith has been part of the problem of late.

.883 sv% with 4 wins, 6 losses over his last 10 games.

It was only a matter of time until the bubble burst.

(Smith turns 36 on Thursday and has has just one solid season... 6 years ago)

Their defense hasn’t been very good and they’re a one-line team.

I said last off-season they're an overrated bubble team.

And not much in the way of prospects.

I do believe I was dancing about in here when they traded away their 1st + 2nd. 8-)

Is it coincidence that Mr Burke was part of the management team the last time an unprotected 1st was traded away? :mrgreen:

Go whole hog, don't beat around the hedge.

None whatsoever.

Not is it a confidence the Flames fielding has been abysmal.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
