Right now we are not even a better team than yours, we played crappy against you last Saturday night and proved we are not there yet, but it seems the talk always gets back to how bad we are.

Wouldn't it be more beneficial to worry about your own team than that crappy team north of you?
That the Flames upper management has directly stated that they "don't want to go through an Oilers style rebuild" is why there is a perceived fixation.

The fixation is that we've seen, up close and personal, what the Oilers (and their fans) have gone through over the last three years. We'd rather not repeat that down here.
