The Flames’ craptastic play at home continued, by once again failing in a shootout. Last night was one of those games where Calgary really played to their opponent, which is something they have been doing a lot this year. Hey Vancouver, you want to run and gun? Okay, but we’re not as good at it as you are. Minnesota… you like the defensive sit-and-wait-for-a-turnover approach? We can do that, but not as good as you can.
No wonder this team is in last place, it’s hard to leapfrog teams when you are playing the game you opponent wants to play – but have a lot more experience with it than you do.
I’m telling you, this season is the non-publicized rebuild of the Flames. Watch in April when we start offloading the few assets we have.
You heard it here first… eat it Francis!
