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.
