I have to say that I admire the Calgary Flames and the way they are managed.

There is no sucking for a win down the road. Every season they try to be as competitive as possible despite a lack of depth and an aging core. They are also quite loyal to the players they employ which is good.

I hate to think Columbus may be intentionally tanking for a rebuild like Edmonton and others have done. That, to me, is not the essence of the sport and I think it belittles fans that pay good money to watch their team every season. It is a manager's job to make the team the best it can be for the upcoming season. I think teams need to try to make themselves better at EVERY opportunity, not just stockpiling young talent and hoping for a cup in 3-4 years.
