I was raised in a town that was mostly Oiler Fans and I was one of the few Flames fan. With the Oilers they took the approach that they needed top picks to get them to the playoffs. The problem with this scenario is for 4 straight draft with their first round pick all scoring forwards and now they do not have lots of complementary players to protect the scoring forwards. Next season we will see how the team fairs with a full season.

For the Flames they want to get younger and with Wiseboro(sp?) helping the team he will work closely with Feaster to help create a team with good mix of young players and veteran. Hopefully Kipper does not retire and plays his final year of his contract. We are hoping Ramo can come in a play well as he has been away from NHL style of hockey for a few years and it will take some time getting use to NHL and no one can predict whether he will wow us right away or need some adjustment period. Kipper can help him out. I will expect 2015 to have Ramo as our true #1 goalie. I thank Iginla and Jaybo for their time in Calgary and wish them the best in their hockey career. As a fan we can hate Feaster for the return that we received but you have to credit him for getting first rounders for Iginla and Jaybo. Now we have to draft well and go into the free agent and pick the right young player and veterans to create a good atmosphere in the room. You can not win hockey games without some good veteran presents and currently Sarch and Tanguay have the most experience when it comes to winning the cup.

I know being a Flames fan Oiler fans will give us grieve until we make the players as we did the same to them. So instead of comparing us the Flames with the Oilers let just prove we are better by making a team that will not tank three years in a row. We will show them that we can make the playoff sooner. The reason I love Calgary Flames is the organization shows respect to their fans. Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa and Vancouver all went to the Finals and lost. Calgary was the team that had the whole team out and thank their fans for their support even though they did not win the cup and fans did not cause violence like in Vancouver. Edmonton tried to copy the Flames but half the team did not want to come out and thank their fans. Ottawa did not do anything. I know what it is like to not make the playoffs for many years as I was a fan when Calgary missed the playoffs 7 years in row before Sutter helped the team make the playoff in 2004. Hopefully Calgary can show the world we can survive this rebuild and create a team that one day win another cup.
