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.

Love these quotes from cow puke:

This season is one of the biggest calamities in Calgary Flames history.

No 1st.
No 2nd.
No 3rd.

No playoffs.

It takes a special organization to fail on almost every front all in one season.

The only way things get worse is if Gully doesn’t get fired.

And this:

Ownership is a joke

Front office is a joke.

Coaching is a joke.

Is it any wonder the on ice performance is ....[a joke].

I feel better about our season when I think of Calgary. They have been in denial since Lanny hoisted the Cup. At least we are all pretty much in agreement that our team sucks :mrgreen:

Must be lit af over there.
The Flames have relieved Glen Gulutzan, Dave Cameron and Paul Jerrard of their coaching duties.
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."

Maybe they will hire AV and give him Twitchy Moustache as an assistant.

So, the legend of Treliving has been resurrected. Seems his move today has restored his great architectural image(ination). This was a great move by him. He has relieved the pressure on himself, at least for now anyway.

Seems he thinks NHL experience is vital in the next hire. Sorry, what? What NHL experience did he have? But money will be no object in his next hire so there’s that.

Says he’s accountable for the players he’s brought in and not all the players hold themselves responsible for the results. Says they out chanced most teams, most games so why couldn’t they out score the opposition? Says big changes are coming and some of the core may be moved. With no high draft picks in the upcoming draft he’ll try to rectify that. Players that didn’t hold themselves accountable will be moved out.

I think he has a short window to right the ship.

sounds like a one year desperation rebuild on the fly.

Not for the teams sake, but for his job's sake.

Ya Tops. He’s on borrowed time. If he gets the right coach; if the team starts to score next season; if the passengers are minimized/moved out; if goaltending is more consistent; if their D shows depth beyond 2 players.....a lot of ifs.

I look at Calgary and no where do I see a contender, barely a playoff team. They are a long way away from being a top team. It’s not just a couple of players to make them better. Treliving still has hero status to most of the fans it seems but honestly his moves to me are very questionable. He jumped the gun on thinking the rebuild there was done.

They have some very good, solid pieces for sure but would be looking a lot better if they had some more draft picks. And their FA signings, well let’s just say they haven’t worked out so good.

And none of this says I think the Canucks are better. I just think the Canucks are better suited going forward.

Goaltending and defence are disasters. Has Burke been selecting them?

Lol their defence is hardly a disaster. The current D or the ones on the way.

Goaltending is a mess and so is team speed.

If the Canucks don't win the lottery, I want the Flames Islanders to win it.

Of course getting Dahlin probably means Tavares resigns as that gives them a true #1D moving forward, all they'll need is that goalie.

But the chaos that will arise next door will be entertainment at it's finest!

Okay, maybe they win 2nd overall :-P

Bill Peters, who had an out clause in his contract that would have expired today, exercised his out clause and resigned from Carolina. One day after Calgary called to seek permission to talk to Peters about their coaching vacancy.

Smoke-fire?
