The Flames were never any good in the first place and never had the good, young players we have right now. You want this team to be bad or to turn bad but it just isn't going to happen.

Their production didn't increase when they went to those zone starts, I don't know why you assume it would cause a decline.

Every time you have doubted the twins, they've proven you wrong. The twins know they have to make their name in the playoffs now. You continually marginalize the regular season and now you want to get rid of them after 8 regular season games?
