Seriously though, these guys must have a certain level of pride that will motivate them, plus Iginla etc. are historically slow starters. I could see them turning it around and putting a few wins together. They have to be a better team than Columbus, Dallas in the west. Look for Calgary to get a bottom 5 lottery pick ....

Also I'm surprised at Baertschi's slow start to the season after getting 3 goals in 5 games up in the Bigs last year. Kid also looks to be injured prone.
The way they all look down on the Oil for rebuilding with their holier than though attitude, it would be wonderful to watch them eat a dink and have to rebuild. I would take great pleasure watching them go from making fun of us for "tanking" to fully supporting a Flames rebuild.
