I say yes, but we'd need quite a bit to go right (or at least to not go wrong) just to end up in 7th or 8th.

However, considering the rest of the NHL is already preparing to crap on us, I say bring it. Let's prove some people wrong. I'm going to go into the season with a chip on my shoulder and here's hoping the team does too.

I'm going to go into the season with a chip on my shoulder and here's hoping the team does too. A new coaching staff and half a new lineup should inject some much needed urgency and intensity.

It's a tough pill to swallow when I see all these " predictions " throwing Calgary into the 14th and 15th spots around forums, NHL.com, and other blogs. It may be disgruntled rival fans, or sports casters with interests lying in other franchises, but it still gives me a bitter taste.

The Flames are not a favored market. Especially these days. I do feel, however that the amount of changes and the quality of the acquisitions will breathe a new result. The Flames will surprise.

Cheers! I love an underdog and at this point it's glaringly obvious we just aren't well liked out there and people want us to lose.

Here is to shutting them all up. Especially Francis a Mcguirre who never have anything good to say about the flames.

The way I see it is we were barely out of the playoffs last year. That was with half an ahl team. I honestly believe this years team is a definite improvement. Iggy's gonna look so good holding that cup over his head. B)

If the Flames make the playoffs, it would be almost impossible for them to make it the following season. It would be a result of everyting falling into place at the right time.

Now your confusing the oilers and flames again.....

Also true. Bandwagon hoppers and fad followers. Oh well. I believe in my team and I think they will surprise a lot of people. Lots of reasons to be optimistic, I can't wait for hockey to start. Sadly with the CBA talks starting to heat up, intensify and get ugly, I think we are in for a long offseason. Greedy owners....

We won't have the ability to however. As the CPC's economic and state appratus, slowly disintegrates, the world will be thrown into political and economic craziness. And Star people, (people from space), will land as peace keepers, and kidnap out children to participate in some perverted games where they're hungry. and Voldemort's followers will fly around with shadows and monsters scaring children in a hospital, with Mary Poppins shooting out light blasts from her umbrella, as Anne of Green Gables tackles these gastly ghostly creatures, with her teenager angry powers (nothing more scary than teenage girls. I should know my baby sister will become one.... and I'm her guardian. Oy Vey.

Our Calgary Highlanders and Prince Patrica and RCMP are too busy trying to hold back a horde of angry mutant Canucklehead Zombies, as the nutjob Weebleludwig. continues his eco terrorism. Romneyism takes full effect as Romney is sworn in and the war in Iraq and Afganistan expects a sudden surge of US troops.... who are too busy losing to the peace keepers trying to kidnap our children for a perverted game where they kill each other..... Then earthquakes of mother of all earthquakes explode in Vancouver, sucking in the olympic villages so we don't have to pay for them anymore... and the GM place while we're at it..... This earthquake spreads to other Western American states, sucking these into a vortex of inter collapsing, (like on Shogun movie, with the earthquake scene). as demons from hell pop out of this hell hole, and Buffy Summers and Giles try to fight them...... While on the East Coast, Aliens and all hollywood movie creatures attack Eastern metropolises..... And the fab fantastic 5 with the Justice league tries to push them throw a worm hole so they can accost another planet.

Scotland will vote for independence in 2013, and renew hostilities that have been dormant since 1700, (see Braveheart).

China's economy implodes, causing another economic crisis, Tibet however will be insulated... now with North Korea..... it's too a wild card to predict....

anyways, nothing will happen to us Hockey fans though. the Puck Goddess will chose her champion this year according to skill, and Calgary MIGHT make her hot and bothered, with new talent......... and knight-commander like leadership of Iggy. and the steadfast unbreakable will of Kipper.

Some one else already summed this up regarding your trolling attempts...

Just a couple of days ago you made a post accusing someone else of talking out of their butt...

Well, now you are the pot calling the kettle black...

So Conner, you can either choose to spew your vitriol, or you can choose to post accordingly for this forums intentions...

My guess is, you will continue to try and insult the Flames whenever possible and rah rah your precious oilers in an attempt to make yourself feel better...

Not that I care to any extent, but I have always wondered why other franchise fans are members on these forums. It puzzles me. Sometimes it makes for good discussion, when they don't rear their ugly troll heads and can have a decent conversation.

If the Flames make the playoffs, it would be almost impossible for them to make it the following season. It would be a result of everyting falling into place at the right time.

Or....

The flames make the playoffs win the first round as an underdog, play a hard fought 2nd round only to loose to the eventual Stanley cup finals rep of the west and there for proving to players around the league that we are back in contention, then lure a #1 c and top pairing Dman in the following off season and this all eventually leads to Iggy raising lord Stanley's cup and being the 2014 Con Smythe winner all while the oilers still jar for that coveted 1st overall draft pick for the 5th straight year!

See I can speculate about the future too!

I say yes, but we'd need quite a bit to go right (or at least to not go wrong) just to end up in 7th or 8th.

However, considering the rest of the NHL is already preparing to crap on us, I say bring it. Let's prove some people wrong. I'm going to go into the season with a chip on my shoulder and here's hoping the team does too.

Well said my friend I think most of this city has the same chip on there shoulder, lets hope that this doesn't turn into a boulder weighing down the flames this season like it seemed to all through the last!

(EVERY GAME MATTERS :rolleyes:)

Man, you've got to chill out.

Every post I make in the Flames' board is just me calling it like I see it. I'm not trying to take shots, just some people such as yourself are highly sensitive from any perceived negativity towards your team.

Others like Crzydrvr have said that it's possible but the stars will have to align which is how I feel. Having the stars align two seasons in a row would be a minor miracle.

The Oilers are in a similar boat for making the playoffs this year. Things would have to work out almost perfectly even more so than the Flames.

I like others in this thread think my team will make the playoffs inspite of the odds. Just saying the odds are against you (and me).

Or....

Ok, for fun what do you think is more likely to happen? (seriously)

Ummm well given the recent history of both teams?

The flames are 3 years removed from the post season and have made a large overhaul to there line up and coaching staff and have improved significantly at the drafting table.

The oilers are 6 years removed, continue to dwell in the basement and outside of a unproven collage player the only significant player they have brought in and managed to keep (outside of there prospects who have been rushed into the NHL) is Ryan Smyth.

So I guess I would say the flames making the playoffs and the oilers grabbing up another high draft pick are both very realistic possibility's.

But thats just my take on it :lol:

Obviously the senerio started with is a pipe dream but your in no position to say how hard it will be for a team to make the post season 2 years from now. There are so many variables that will happen between now and then that your just blowing smoke out your chicken tikka masala!

I'd say bolded. We've seen the opposite way around with Edmonton in the tankers while Calgary misses the playoffs for the past three seasons, so it's about time it reversed a bit.

Without being biased at all, the Oilers are still not at the level of a Calgary or a Minnesota. But they aren't that bad. It's just that every team in the West outside of Columbus has a legitimate shot at postseason play and I don't see them improving significantly enough to beat out 6 of them. Lottery team normally suggests that they suck, but the Oilers could very well land in 14th again while still being less than 10 points out of the playoffs, which wouldn't be lottery placement most of the time except in the wild West.
