Down In Epic Flames!

Sign in to follow this  


OK peeps I'm going to spare you the pleasantry's today because it would be disingenuous. This team has officially hit rock bottom and did it in legendary fashion! There are games where you measure yourself and see where you are and then there are games where you see the sad horrible reality that is the pile of crap that is the Calgary Flames. I love this team OK but this is just disgraceful and pathetic now. Sutter for some stupid reason keeps sitting Kipper in HUGE games and it makes me crazy. Why would you sit the only reason we have been a playoff team in the past and the only reason we would have a shot at Jay's promise of this year making the playoffs. Kipper is why this city got excited again for hockey. Kipper is the reason we had the C of Red, Kipper is the reason so many butts got to the seats and now I hear there is a possibility of trading KIPPER?!!!

I don't know why Iggy is so untouchable? He never got us to the playoffs before Kipper got here. He is a guy I love and respect but lets be real Kipper is the back bone and if you deal Kipper then we will go down in EPIC flames people! We deal Kipper and the fans will go MARK MY WORDS JAY! Don't do the same DUMBA$$ move that you did in Tampa! Listen to a guy who has been a member of this fan base in the 90's in the "young guns" days and knows that if you do this we will be there again.

Deal Iggy if you have to we can build around Kipper. We can get a bunch of rookies that can mess up and Kipper will be there to stop the pucks. Don't trade Kipper Jay no matter how much pressure you feel it is the WRONG MOVE! This team needs a new voice as well and Sutter needs to go. I used to love the Sutter's and thought that there way was the way but this new NHL as shown that old style of thinking is dead and we need some new blood. We need to wipe away all Sutter influence from this club and forge ahead. I like Daryl and Brent I really do, I liked there Cowboy hardworking style but the boys have tuned it out and it is plain as day (with the exception of Oili)

Please Jay don't deal Kipper and fire Sutter and the fans will stay. Get rid of Kipper and it will be so bad Jay you will never get a GM job again and you will be remembered as the guy who Killed this team forever. Until next time...

I am writing to say that I agree this team needs to have a change before they will get any better and it is not trading any of the players, if you watch the games that they have been playing and watch the bench while the play is going on no one is connected to the Game in progress....totally disconnected.

Sloppy passes and line changes on the ice and kipper needs to go back to goalie school...he has real problems in breakaway situations and the shoot out. any other time the defense has let him down he needs to lay right into his defensive players that mess up in front of him.

Look at Montreal going down hill fast then the famous fight between two Montreal players during Practice and bounce back because they have passion again.

When the pressure is on Kipper is great because his blood is flowing and adrenaline is up, he is engaged but the other players have no respect for the people that they are playing for you can see it on their faces.

You need someone to stand up for this team both off the ice and on the ice some one please start playing like that C on your chest means something.I meant the Calgary emblem not Iggy's C but that should be addressed as well Iggy needs to learn a new role within this team as his age is catching up with him and when his feet are not moving the pucks don't either.

I have been a Flames fan since they came from Atlanta and this absolutely makes me ill to see them play this badly..we can beat The Canucks but loose to the Bruins...in an absolutely embarrising showing, I know 7 rookies in the line up with all of the injuries and Bourkes suspension( again) but still no excuse...that was pathetic showed no pride at all.

You would think that with all of them rookies one or two would take the initiative to show they really want to be in the NHL and deserve to be here.

Seems to me the players have mixed signals let the players play and not worry about the other crap.

Brent it is your J.O.B to instill the motivation to get the players to play the way you want and this seems like it will be the third year in a row they just do not so either you change or Leave. , I agree when Daryl was here there was a bit of a conflict and caused the drama off ice that hung over there heads like a menacing cloud of doom but that is gone now and yet they and everyone else still seems to blame him for the crap they call hockey today a year later...give me a break.

It is a Sutters fault but NOT Daryls's he is a great coach the main mistake he made was going to the GM spot he is an amazing coach as LA is realizing and benefiting from now.

Thank you Pearlff2 for your awesome and well thought out comment. I don't want to see Iggy dealt but if they had a choice between him or Kipper in my opinion Kipper should be the guy to stay. Shootouts where never his strong point that is very true but he has had so many awesome seasons working so hard and stopping so many sure goals that I can totally forgive him on those plays. He has got better on them but 9 times out of ten it will be the pokecheck that will save the day! Thanks again and GO FLAMES GO!
