Crisis in Cowtown
Before I begin let me make clear that I am a huge Flames fan and have been since birth. I am not a “bandwagon jumper” and supported the team throughout their lengthy playoff absences.
Now that I have that out of the way I am going to state that the Flames will not make it far at all this post season if they continue to play as they have. They are not going to get home ice for the playoffs and unless they finish 6th and play Minnesota, will be golfing two weeks after the Oilers.
The team has no identity and no chemistry. Last nights humiliating loss was a clear example of how they Flames cannot seem to get three solid lines going. If one line performs, two others do not and you need all three (or four) clicking to have a shot. Calgary doesn’t.
Now I hope I am wrong and would love to admit it, but I don;t think that will be happening.
