Because there's a vitriolic hatred that posters have for Calgary, which prompts them to undervalue Calgary at every turn. This has been going on since before I joined this board. Every free agent signing gets ridiculed even if it's a guy that's been one of our best players. Draft picks get ignored so that posters can say Calgary has ZERO prospects. Core players get ignored so that posters can say that Iginla and Kipper are the only one's carrying the team, and it will fall into the abyss when they wash up sooner than later. People just do not take a logical, objective assessment when it comes to Flames. You can disagree all you want, but you're not going to convince a single Flames fan that that's not the case.
As for scouts and analysts, I hear them say all the time that Calgary's prospect pool has made big improvements and is trending upwards.
