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.
Are we surprised that Bubbles is defending the Flames and their defence? "Blame the goaltending!" Remember Blobbee loves Tkachuk (slow), Bennett (bust), Hamonic (not a stud), Backlund (he loves his new contract)

All year all you heard "the Flames defence is overrated" after the first pairing the Defence is atrocious. Hamonic is not the "stud" that blob likes to refer him as. The defence is slow and prodding, not a speedy, transition, fast puck moving defence that is so important in today's NHL. Giordano is an old man. The forward unit is very thin after 3 guys and like their D, not fast either.

Many problems with this team that go beyond "goaltending"

Average age at end of season.

I think we are doing this the right way, or should I say the way it will have to be done in today's NHL.
Don't know WTF the Flames are doing?

Sounds like Bill Peters has walked away from the gongshow in Carolina and is heavily favoured to become the Flames next head coach.

From one gong show to another, hard to say which team has the better roster.

I don’t think it’s the roster he’s thinking about.

Their whole board was ripping Peters to shreds BEFORE he was confirmed as the hire. Now they are "cautiously optimistic" about him because he talked a good game and publicly blow their players really hard. The mental gymnastics required to reconcile the cognitive dissonance was pretty funny to watch :lol:
