I have legitimate playoff hopes now!

Something I haven't had in the last two years, I think with the addition of Cammy(I really didn't like him leaving the first time) that the flames have the pieces to get into the playoffs. So yes, no longer rooting for a high draft pick for the rest of the season from me

Though I still don't like our first round chances, and will cheer for the winning team between the flames and my wings :p so I'm hoping for a Canucks matchup.

Really like the mix of youth on the team now rather than the veteran filled teams of the past.

Tonight's game will likely tell us whether the Flames have a chance at the playoffs. They lose to Phoenix it could be tough. They get outplayed badly by Phoenix, like they did by the Oilers, and it should send management into sell mode. There are games that define the season and this is one of them. Never thought I'd say that about a game against the Coyotes.

There is always hope and I am glad to see the Flames proving nay sayers wrong (including many here). Who knows what can happen, just be in the top 8. Calgary can not win the NW but hell they could go for 6th...

As long as your a skeptic, and as long as Gleninator stops watching Flames games, we should win the cup.

I actually came here to post this exact thing... As for the second bolded part, we also need to keep Gnome as far away from the Saddledome as humanly possible.

Boy, after that Feaster interview, my playoff hopes, what little remained, are gone.

This team is rebuilding . Not a 'scorched earth' Oiler's rebuild but a 'we're not good enough right now so let's sell off some assets and look to come back strong next year" kind of rebuild.

I'd be more than happy if Feaster went this route.

Didn't Gnome say he went to Australia or something? He hasn't been around I don't think. Probably the only reason we manage to make it to overtime these days

With the situation we're in right now this turn of events would please me greatly. We could be looking at a whole new team next year. If we're ever going to sell at the deadline this would be the year.
