This is a joke! No team with a piss poor road record like ours has ever come even remotely close to the Stanley Cup. Start winning some freaking games on the road for god sakes!

it's a bizarre Jekyll and Hyde like syndrome.

I have to say, under Playfair, the Flames are not the defensive juggernaut I remember from the past few years.

Until we learn how to play hockey on the road, I don't see us as Cup contenders. Can't play every playoff game at home.

The only good thing about the playoffs is that there are no shoot outs...

That *could* work in our favor. We seem to lose a lot of shootouts on the road. Actually, we lose a lot period, but most of them seem to be on the road.

Anyway, I agree with our resident eternal pessimist here. I fully believe this team has it in them to be top contenders for the Cup, but they need to put forth a better road effort. I'm beyond frustrated watching this team in away games. They know they need to be more aggressive. They know they need to stop standing around. So why the **** can't they?
