Default Someone tell me what is wrong with the Calgary Flames

I watched the game tonight. I am glad that my hometown Caps won, even though I went against them in the Puck-Off contest.

But....

Can anyone tell me what the fock is wrong with the Flames? I saw a listless team tonight... looked like they were just going through the motions. That team cannot afford to be "going through the motions" with a record of 3-6-1. With as bad as Phoenix has looked, they are only one point ahead of them for the worst record in the league. As bad as Philly has looked, they have the same amount of points.

Kiprusoff has played OK. Not great but OK. So it is not him. The team just looks deflated.... I'm going to say this is a coaching problem. Playfair is going to be on the hot seat if this crap continues. They have a very solid lineup. No way should they be one of the wrst teams in the league.

In the past they've regularly been outplayed and saved by a hot goalie. If he's not playing outstanding what do they really have? Their lineup is ok but its by no means an intimidating roster talent wise.

Dunno. I'm a Flames fan and have to say they don't look like a playoff team. Iginla is the only player they have that is carrying his weight. Tanguay has done nothing, they brought him for his offensive flair and he has not delivered. He's this year's Tony Amonte. Didn't like the idea of Playfair replacing Darryl Sutter (a great coach) from the get go. I agree with LowKey, the Flames roster is lacking in talent and because of that great goaltending is vital. Kipper hasn't been at his best thus far, I'm hoping he finds his groove because if he doesn't the Flames are going to be golfing come April.

the flames started out slow last year, and then played better, should be in the top four in the west.

thanks

not close to the top 4, okay whatever you say....

Detroit is a good team but benefit from a division that is weak, weak, weak,...sure they have a good record. however was it a great shock that they got bounced in the first round.

I mean the hawks and the blues, have been dreadfull....okay.

thanks

would put sharks and duck in the top 4, however dallas will have to go far in the playoffs, they have a good coach and great goaltending.

thanks

last week calgary was a dog at home to dallas.they won but their coach said they were outplayed.they have little scoring while they are very solid everywhere else.can the offense improve,sure,but right now they are light years behind detroit. by the way,they lost at detroit 3-2 and were outshot 34-15 and outchanced badly
