In all honesty, I think we deserved to win this game. Backlund missed about 3 opportunities in one period to give the Flames the lead. Kipper didn't play well at all, his bad-good rotation by season is showing.

The Flames were the better team, but the Avs capitalized on their chances.

We seriously need to consider trading our vets. But at least the Avs winning helped my fantasy team..

Red Wings fan, coming in peace. I see Hudler had a big night. How has he been looking?

We still like Hudler, very good player.

Iggy was decent tonight made some nice plays but couldn't pull the trigger, Cammy was invisible and Kipper was terrible

Honestly that was probably one of the easiest game Calgary will have this year. 4 days of rest while Colorado played 3 games in 4 nights. Pathetic really.

This has been the worst I've seen of Kipper.

Cammy has been, well, stupid with the puck in the defensive zone

Butler hasn't impressed me at all. Not after seeing Smith

Even though Butler and Cammy haven't been on their game, they're not as important as Kipper.

Kiprusoff really has been awful Irving needs to start next game. Cammy's looked terrible all season and I would look to maybe trade him for either prospects and/or picks if we are out of the playoffs or if we still plan to contend I'd look for another struggling top 6 winger but with more size maybe look at a team like Columbus with umberger or Brandon Dubinsky (bit of a stretch on Dubinsky)

We need an ownership change if they really think this team can compete.

I hope Hartley bag skates these *******s until they die of dehydration. This is the second time the Flames have lost a game in 3 or less minutes.

I feel badly for Backlund, just couldn't finish - holding his stick too tight. He should've had that walk-in attempt but it was a very weak shot considering the time he had to utilize it.

Decent. This is what happens when a player like him gets enough time.

Iggy looked "good" tonight but he really looks like he has taken a step back this season and I wonder if it is finally time to ship # 12 out while he still has some value.

The Flames still can't play 60 minutes.
Rode 1 line? We had 5 forwards over 18 minutes, we never use more than 2 defensive lines Smith and Butler suck. The defense wasn't great but Kipper was easily the worse flames player today and that says alot as Butler sucked.

Him and Cervanka have been the only players Flames fans are happy about. Only seen Hudler twice now, but I want his jersey. Fan favorite in the making. Us Flames fans aren't used to seeing skill out there.

It's difficult to win games when three of your core players - Kiprusoff, Giordano, and Cammalleri - are sucking hard. Kipper, in particular, has been awful all season.

Yeah, that's soooo awesome! Play ****** all year but it's acceptable as long as they get a shiny new prospect.

Go back the the Oilers board plz.

In all honesty... **** sakes, just do a quick rebuild. I know this is kinda of a knee jerk reaction...

But seriously. Get some top tier talent while people still think Jarome's got some juice, get some top tier talent while people think Kipper's still a stud, get something for Cammy.
You have or are stuck with as a core in a rebuild:
Hudler, Cervenka, Backlund, Baertchi, TJ, Gio, Wideman, Glencross, Tanguay & Ramo.

I mean, Nathan MacKinnon is going to be a very good top line center in this league; just start selling. The team we have on the ice tonight doesn't look like it can compete with anyone.

Well... if we lose against Chicago this weekend (which I'm going to be at), then we might as well just start posting the consensus top ten picks at the start of each GDT.

It's becoming unacceptable in such a short season to have this much gone by with only 3 points, especially with the home ice advantage that we've had. It's not over yet, but if things don't shape up soon Feaster better start selling. Teams like Pittsburgh and Philly are gonna come calling with both teams hurting.

LOL

We do not even really know why he wasn't resigned.

I am guessing when he left for KHL that one year, it soured us on him a little.
Maybe he demanded too much money? we dont know. But I think he is quite good.
