As much as I hate it, its simply true they compete harder.
Many of the young flames players are young and played their 1st NHL game not too long ago... Maybe the fact that it is the end of the season and they get to play their 1st games as a collective bunch with no pressure is making them look better than they really are? I am positive they will come back to earth after a full season and do just as bad maybe worst if they don't make some drastic trades. That said it is absolutely embarrassing that they are ahead of us in the standings. Not acceptable.
