This is hilarious. Fans of a team that's going to miss the playoffs for the 3rd-straight year fighting with fans of a team that's going to miss the playoffs for the 6th-straight year. It's like two retards fighting. No matter who wins, you're still a loser. Get some TOR fans involved and it's like a battle for the bottom.

I'm confused by your use of the word "we"

And while they may be tanking they are interesting to watch and they are following a plan that will lead them in a good direction.

Whatever they are doing at least they aren't floundering like a dying fish on the bottom of a boat.
Lol, you are aware Potter isn't making most NHL rosters right? Yet alone listed as a "solid guy." He's a 28 year old with 60 nhl games under his belt. He plays sheltered minutes and is a -16. Basically a crappier version of Derek Smith.

Easy for you to sit back in your chair and wait until their are 5 games left in the season. Selling at the deadline with where the Flames were, would have looked dumb.

Despite all the crap you're taking I agree with many of your points. Lots of others do too. I did like our 2010 and 2011 drafts. First time I can say that in a long time. The core of this team has proven they're very comfortable. Playfair's comments on Iginla were spot on IMO. You don't get a Baertschi every year with the 13th pick. There will be plenty of Fatas, Nystroms and Nemiszs too. I'm not advocating a Oiler's style rebuild, but we should be moving out aging assets like Iginla and Kipper while we can still get something for them.

Fool me once, shame on you.... Fool me twice, shame on me... Feaster is either a blowhard or has his hands tied. I'm not saying that they should've traded Kipper, two of the following guys should've been traded for a pick. Jackman/TKo, Sarich/Hannan.

Like I said sitting and waiting to point fingers is easy. If you traded Jokinen at the deadline you would just look like a complete idiot.

at the deadline we were right in the thick of the playoff hunt both Hannan and Sarich were playing and Tko was on the second line moving them means we give up on the season at the time that would have been foolish. I think at the draft we will see some moves as I doubt Feaster is happy with this team.

Honestly, I think any of Bouma, Nemisz, Sylvester or Byron can bring you as much as TKo. Hannan and Sarich are harder to replace, but Wilson looked good in his stint here. Kipper was the guy winning us games. When we went on our little streak we were still outshot 10 straight games and outchance in 8 of 10. If a team is looking at #5 defensemen or 4th line forwards to push them into the playoffs, they're in trouble.

We already had Byron,Nemisz,and Bouma playing due to injuries so moving Jackman and Tko means we play to well below nhl standard players. Also none of Babs/Brodie/Smith are ready for top 4 minutes so yes it would have been the end of the season so if we move them then move Iggy and Kipper and Jokinen.

Byron wasn't playing, neither was Nemisz. Only Bouma of the guys I listed was. Maybe you could do some research or look something up before you post next time. Brodie and Smith are not really much of a downgrade on either Hannah or Sarich. They bring more offense to make up for the reduced defense.

Byron was returned 4 days before the deadline, Desbien was recalled before the deadline (I thought it was Nemisz my bad), then a week after the deadline we had to recall 3 players and Byron was hurt the team would have been a joke as was my point.

They look like idiots now with lack of prospects and picks. People should not get attacked in this thread for saying they should have went into rebuild mode months/year ago.

Now they have to resign him or he walks for nothing and they continue to look like idiots. Unless players are willing to waive no trade /movement contracts this team will be here for the next 3-5 years sniffing around 8th or lower. Thanks Darryl

You are quiet the enthusiast aren't ya...While I dont share your mindset tanking to be better aint always proven either. Right now its 50/50 in the NHL. As a matter of fact only 3 teams won a championship via rebuild in the past decade. Pittsburg, Chicago, and the Bruins. How many teams have been at the bottom have drafted high yet failed to make that next major step are plenty. Columbus, Atlanta, NYI, FLA, TOR are ones who have had high picks and no success. One more point, now lets put together teams who have had succefull seasons because of good drafting after tanking for 5-6 years but the end result a Cup never landed in there town. Those teams would be Wash, LA, Rangers, to some extent TB since after lockout, STL, VAN to certain extent.. So until those up north Bottom fOILERS win something I am not sure I agree to them. I am not saying that calgary won`t tank in the next few seasons..they may but Chances of success are still 50-50 after the lottery pick
