We need it. Vent, and maybe it will bring the opposite that the Optimism thread brought. (Or atleast balance it out)

**** THIS TEAM. Honestly, no one seemed to care tonight. If they blew it up tomorrow I think I'd be just fine with that. The same leaders keep bringing this team the same results, again and again. No consistency and we are now on pace for a top 5 pick.

Sadly I'll probably be back next game to cheer them on. Sigh.

Downside to loyalty, I guess.

Not me I'm out, I am going to cheer for Philly and won't even have to see a late game this year. See you at the draft when we trade down.

Ill be watching Devils games for the most part.

I just get too disappointed every time we lost, because this team is such a ******* tease. Just when they are starting to look like they will pull it together, it all falls to pieces again.

The team learned how to play defence for like one game (maybe two games if you mash separate periods of play together). After that they tossed that plan in the garbage.

I fully endorse trading everybody. The compete level of this team is horrible, and it has been for years. I am not advocating a full scale 5-8 year rebuild but at some point there has to be a culture shift. That absolutely means that #12 is gone. I don't put this teams failures on his shoulders by any means but nothing will change until he is gone. He deserves better anyways.

So ****ing disappointing.. We need Kipper and Backs back ASAP.. Or maybe it's time to make a move for a center. Something needs to happen soon or we're done. Although I have a feeling Feaster will wait and see how we do with Kipper and Sven back...


**** I'm so pissed. Not to mention I decided to start drinking half way through the game and now I'll probably feel like **** at work tomorrow with the amount I drank in the 3rd. **** **** ***** .


I think by time this season is ****ing over, I will be a ****ing raging alcoholic. ****

I feel this way about Iginla as well, he still gives a great effort most nights and he is still a great captain but, the fact is the leadership on this team has just failed again and again, and you have to start at the top. I would move Iginla to a team where there is already a core in place and he can just play his game, and show his skill. He deserves better than to waste away on this zero effort club.

He has done so much for the organization and I would rather watch him win a cup in another sweater than watch my favorite player ever fade into nothingness for the next 5 years.

Also, Cammy has just rubbed me the wrong way all season every time I see him on the bench he is smiling and chatting someone up whether the Flames are winning or losing. Maybe its just me but I want to move him as well.

Even just moving Iginla and Cammy could return a pair of 1st's and a couple good prospects. Draft well this year and the rebuild is probably already a 1/3rd over.

Move Kipper (he deserves to chase a cup too, the guy is a champ just like Iginla and deserves a shot).

Okay, serious post time.

I love this team, but... god. There is nothing here. Seriously. We have maybe a handful of players who come to compete on any given night, and usually that consists of our fourth line, random other guys, and the goalie. That is simply not enough for us to be able to compete, let alone win games.

On the topic of goalies, can we please ****ing settle on one guy? Irving should be the guy. Win or lose, we need to develop our younger guys. I'm sick and tired of ownership stepping in. Clearly they have no idea what is best for this team, which is to get younger and rebuild. Scrambling for 8th every year is useless and apparently a tough task for this team to accomplish, so maybe ownership should open their eyes.

At this point ill be watching to enjoy The young B's: Backlund, Bartschi and Brodie.

Brodie just impresses the heck out of me, such a smart and creative player with room to grow.

Dont blame you though honestly. This team doesn't care why should you.

Like I said just like a Canuck, going gets tough and they dive or turtle.

Real fans stick around, if you don't want to watch the team then don't, just don't ****ing come back after.

Real fans watch as their team doesn't even try? I am not saying I won't watch if they were to lose and give 100% or **** even 90% but this constant sub par efforts aren't worth my time, if they don't show up neither will I.

Also I guess sarcasm doesn't come across the internet, I am still going to watch this team I will just expect a ****** effort.

But hey take shots at me because I think grown ass men should try their best at their jobs.

I don't blame the roster, I blame Feaster. He knew we lacked centre depth and he knew faceoffs were an issue. He did nothing about it.

He brought in a coach who needed the puck to have a successful system, but didn't bring him the centremen to win the puck.

Being dominated =/= lack of effort. I saw lots of guys trying tonight, possibly trying too hard. The team is just not as good as most teams in the league so they will look outmatched, its what happens.
