This is what Flames fans thought from 2007-12. 'Get in the 8th spot and anything can happen'. Look at where they are now.

The reality is, the franchise/management thinks it's much better than they really are. They think they're actually cup contenders when in reality, they are just a punching bag in the first round for superior, more well constructed opponents.

The team had a lot of turnover and no training camp. They're playing an abbreviated season. They made the ECF last year.

BTW, an 8 seed beat a 7 seed in the Finals last year. The last shortened season a lower seed won the SC.

Just make the playoffs.
