But I won't troll your guys' board anymore. Good luck fellas and hopefully the BoA will return to its glory!
BTW, Edmonton is a great city. I've lived in both Edmonton and Calgary. The river valley is nice and the summers are fun, especially when the Jazz and fringe come around. If only that Henday will ever be completed, there will be some real movement
I don't mind you posting here, you're not trolling or anything, just some good old hockey talk.
I live in Calgary myself and was just trying to temper expectations. I noticed lots of people here expect a really quick rebuild, and I think they're setting themselves up for disappointment. Embrace the rebuild, it's fun in it's own way, it's just hard to take the losses. And don't stop going to games! I'd hate to hear people talking about the Atlanta Flames in a few years because Calgary gave up on the team, it almost happened before Iggy and Kipper saved hockey in Calgary years ago.
I'm really hoping the Flames end up getting Reinhart and McDavid myself. Would be a rough couple years, but think of all the young talent that would be in Alberta. The next decade of BOA's could be really, really great.
