It's technically a waste of time to be doing anything other than suviving and reproducing. We will waste our time in the world no matter what, nothing wrong with wasting it on this.

Calgary's arrogant and smug attitude towards the Oiler style rebuild was certainly warranted wasn't it. Hanging on to aging vets, while filing in the holes with more aging vets, is definately the way they should go.

Seriously though, these guys must have a certain level of pride that will motivate them, plus Iginla etc. are historically slow starters. I could see them turning it around and putting a few wins together. They have to be a better team than Columbus, Dallas in the west. Look for Calgary to get a bottom 5 lottery pick ....

Sorry professor would you please indicate which topics are worth discussing and which are not so we may not embarrass ourselves again?

I'm looking forward to the day when alot of Flame fans start eating crow and start cheering for a top pick after all those years of making fun of us doing the exact same. Looking at CP this morning, it looks like that has already started with their "Standings Death for Seth?" thread.

Also I'm surprised at Baertschi's slow start to the season after getting 3 goals in 5 games up in the Bigs last year. Kid also looks to be injured prone.

Seriously though. I don't think Calgary is as bad as the standings indicate, but they really should have won that game last night.

Yeah that confuses me as well. Its like someone going to a white supremacist forum and getting mad when they read things they don't like. What did you expect?

It's because it's so delusional and angry that it's funny.

The fans there refuse to believe anything other than what Jay Feaster tells them.

I remember when Mike Peca gave his analysis of Jay Bouwmeester and the fans at CP absolutely blasted him for it. It was only years later that they realized he was absolutely right.

Here's the video for reference:

By that logic, then, does anyone hate the Sens?

Go check out their League thread whenever the Oilers are playing... Unbelievably smug and arrogant... And always this talk about how Ottawa turned their team around the 'right' way with a 'quick' rebuild... Which is hilarious since they intended to do exactly what the Oilers did, but pulled off a lucky season last year where everything went right.

Tell me you don't slow down at an accident scene to see the gore. It's sort of like that.

They also had Craig Anderson. I'll never understand why Colorado let him go.

As great as the 2006 run was, I still wish the Flames could have gotten past Anaheim in the first round, so we could've had Cal-Edm in the second.

I take no pleasure in the Flames failing just as we seem to be turning a corner.
You've gone soft my friend. All I can say is be careful what you wish for. Wishing Calgary to be that competetive team will backfire pretty quickly. Especially when they defeat us. Much like they did last weekend. We have much bigger issues than cheering for other cities franchises.

To OP, Calgary will battle for 9-10th at least. Fearing they will have a lottery selection fifteen percent into the season is overlooking our own battle to siege. We could easily be sitting in their ranking after one week of either bad luck or a team meltdown. I think its conceited or overzealous to think otherwise at this stage.

Nah, Cervenka and Hudler are playing pretty well right now, and they haven't played as many games as the rest of the league. They'll be just bad enough to pick around 10 when it's said and done. I'm more worried about Washington getting a top 3 pick. My god they're a train wreck right now

Damn really? I know we have a few posters here that are also Sens fans so I wouldn't have expected that.

Even moreso. I'll never understand why Washington let Varlamov go. At least they Avs brass had a plausible plan for replacement. Not simply hoping an unproven in all circumstances sort of tender pans out.

We should be concerned about them because we can't beat them.

Also I don't think they're as bad as some of the posters around here make them out to be.

Check out some Schultz threads, too. Its like no one can comment on any young defenseman in the game without Ottawa fans piling in to point out theyre not as good as Jesus Karlsson.

Might be their time. But you can never tell this early into a season.

Flames are often slow starters and then they get it going and have some really nice stretches. This year very well might be the same. I'm more concerned about the Oilers who in recent years have had a pension of starting out well and having the wheels fall off the tracks.

Regardless, if the Flames get their top 3 pick it will probably make for some excitement down the line when all their fans say how that one player is better than all 4 of our big guns

Yeah I am scared, Mark Jankowski will be lighting us up with Seth Jones shutting down the kids

Nah nothing to be concerned about when it comes to Calgary, They will finish near the 9-10 spot in the west and outside the top 10 in the draft. Having a rivalry would be fun to watch though since I never experienced it in the 80's but I would rather smoke them in every game we play against the Flames

Way bigger issues. Agreed.

But c'mon... Who doesn't want to see the BoA mean something again?

The way they all look down on the Oil for rebuilding with their holier than though attitude, it would be wonderful to watch them eat a dink and have to rebuild. I would take great pleasure watching them go from making fun of us for "tanking" to fully supporting a Flames rebuild.

Don't ever go read a poll thread involving the Sens and Oilers, it's disgusting. I used to like the Sens and their fans, after reading many of their threads I have to say Sens fans are my second most hated after Nuck fans, and I gotta say, a lot of Nuck fans have surprised me this year, many of them have been quite nice towards us and our team.
