It's better this way. If they made the playoffs and even if they went down in the 1st round, it would mask the problems on this team: NO HEART, NO LEADERSHIP, PSYCHOLOGICAL AND PHYSICAL FRAGILITY.
Naslund played with effort, but Markus it's time for you to go. He has no heart, he folds like a Mastercraft tent when the going gets tough and he can't stay even if he gave up the 'C'.
How many chances are we going to give the Sedins? They stay in the tough areas, but they still get rolled like bowling pins on the boards and play too cute. If there's a 2-for-1 offer and the player is a true 1st-liner, why shouldn't Nonis pull this deal?
It's time for a radical makeover of the forwards. Trev, love ya but call it a career and save us the salary. I expect a much different line-up next season.
...that said, even though we got 8 powerplays the refs still jobbed us late in the game. I wonder how Mitchell's face feels.
The only way I will feel good about Saturday night is if we send Flames players to the hospital and ensure they go 4 games and out. I don't care if it means fines and suspensions, somebody should run Kipper and everybody get their elbows up. I don't care what the score will be, so long as the Flames limp to a 4-and-out playoffs.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.
Hate the League.
