Flames d coverage has reached embarrassing levels. It's really hard to watch this stuff. 


 

I was just going to say the Flames make teams on long losing skids, or low in the standings look good.

Yup, too bad for Gio. 

 

 

and wow!  there is just no flow to the Flames’ game.

So no Gio means Rasmus time to take over..is what U hope. Doesn’t matter anyway I just don’t see a contending team in the Flames this year, everything has reeked of inconsistency. The whole season has just had a weird energy and Peters capped it off. We lose 8-3 to our biggest rival and we might lose to a team winning 30% of their games right now.

Mangiapane has the puck behind the net with two sharks watching him and both of the other Flames Players standing at the side of the net watching him and not giving him any support. 
 

well, then they come to our zone and score. 
 

microcosm of this season?

Hire a new coach and just kamikaze the season 


 

let’s go for that Lefrener guy.... spelling.

 

i think I might go make pie. 
 

 

sounds like we have a hard time keeping momentum after scoring.

 

3 unanswered goals.

1st in the West last year. Might not even make the playoffs this year...

The west is so bad, we are almost guaranteed a spot.

Rittich is having a bit of a tough game.

Backhands are tough to read, but this is annoying.


The flames are literally paving a wide open path to the net for the Sharks. 
 

this is not on goaltending

True, but when we get that many chances and they get so few good chances and score...

high danger chances are 11-11. Sharks have 22 shots and 11 high danger chances at 5 on 5. 
 

that’s a terrible ratio.

What I find frustrating is the golden opportunity to gain placement in the west, and we are falling to a meh team.

Oilers losing.

VGK lost.

Van lost.

WPG only picks up a single.

Shorten the bench.

Nothing from Backlund's line.

Lucic was impactful in the early game, but not so much now.

I hate to say it, however I think this is definitely a lost season at this point. Regardless of tonight’s outcome, you just don’t see any passion from most of this team.

 

You keep waiting for them to turn a corner, and show that they really are the team from last year. Maybe it’s time to accept that this is truly the team that they are. The question is why, with the talent that they seemingly have.

It’s not all his fault as I do think this core needs a shakeup but it’s also really clear to me that Ward is in over his head as a head coach.

 

he took over a crap situation and I feel for him but that inexperience is really starting to show. The constant line changing, the dump and chase, the awful d zone trend... just not a man with a plan.
