Maybe when this team can get out of the way from its own incompetence we can start looking down at other teams and their management.
Exactly. Oiler fans are in no position to crow about anything and look down on other organizations after one of the worst 4 year stretches in sports history.
The foundation for future success looks great but until the on ice results show it out, Oiler fans shouldn't be laughing at any organization.
With that being said, Calgary has a long, bumpy road ahead even with Burke in the fold. They have some very nice forward prospects and I'm a huge fan of Monahan but as of now, it's looking like it's going to be at least several years of heartache for Flames fans before the ship gets righted. They just don't have the trade pieces outside of the 1st rounder (similar to the '09-'10 Oilers) to do a quick rebuild and will have to depend on their homegrown talent to start maturing.
