Flames fans were never delusional and never was management. It wasn't the time then, a 10th place team can still go the other way and if you don't believe that then you shouldn't even be in sports. I would be ashamed if my team blew it up in 10th place. I think that's an absolute disgraceful thing to even suggest and so do a lot of Flames fans and management.
This is an entirely different situation. This IS the appropriate time to signal to a rebuild. It's getting close to the deadline and Calgary is close to last place. This isn't a situation that Calgary has been in before, so I wouldn't compare the Regehr trade or anything else to the situation that Calgary is currently facing.
yes but what differs from this year then past years is flames are 15th in the conference. the past 3 years flames were in playoff contention for the most part at least. although they aren't mathematically eliminated from playoff contention yet, they would have to go on a crazy run to even try to squeak in 8th. I think tomorow game against the blues is the boiling point in this season that will signal a definite rebuild.
