That's more the result of the fake parity created by the 3 point system, as opposed to an actual indication of the Flames performance thus far or their chances going forward. Unfortunately, the Flames aren't bad enough to be written off entirely. Add in this false parity and they'll always be just a couple of points out of the playoffs but never quite good enough to take a spot. That's exactly what's happened to the team the last three years and because the owners and Feaster see the team just a couple of wins away from a playoff berth, they've never seen the incentive to make the necessary changes. The organization simply can't afford to let that happen for a fourth time.
