yeah I actually think our 2nd line is the best right now to be honest... Glencross, Jokinen and Moss all seem to be contributing... on the top line its mostly Iginla with Morrison and Tanguay chipping in every now n then... on the 3rd line we have Stajan producing a bit (although it seems like he is producing better when taking shifts on other lines)... and then Jackman and Baclund on our 4th seem to be producing in small amount (which is big for a 4th line)

Three weeks ago I would have said definitely not, now I'd say probably not.

Yes they can!!!!

Perhaps I am being overly optimistic but I am counting them in to make the playoffs!

There are still plenty of games left and anything can happen!

GO FLAMES!!!

Yes, they can make the playoff
No, they can not make the playoff

Either answer is good at this point. With the characters on this team, they will probably fall a couple points short.

Yeah, I really hope he can step it up considering what he's being paid.

haha, what I said is how I truly feel about this club, if it can get a little better offensively the rest of the West better watch out.

This is a playoff team. I believe~! :p

It is still an uphill battle... have to jump over three teams, sure only 2 points but the games in hand other teams have make it even tighter still... should be interesting either way. I say Feaster will not know if he is selling until the last few days before the deadline.

I'll say no. Far too many times I've had my hopes up only to be disappointed.

The Flames have a chance. They are hot right now but could easily go cold down the stretch.

This is a perfect way to describe Stajan. If he's not put with your most skilled players he won't produce. However over the last month he has proven himself reliable defensivly. Basically don't fix it (the lines), if it ain't broke.

I would hardly call Bourque and Hagman grinders. The more goals Bourque scores the less he seems to want to get his nose dirty and while that may just be a natural progression, he doesn't realize that the reason he was scoring goals in the first place was because of his willingness to grind in the dirty areas. Hagman was the guy Stajan played with while he was putting up respectable numbers on a terrible team so there is no excuse there. I think this line is starting to show some chemistry though, so I'll reseve judgement.

Though, if we miss the playoffs, or we are falling behind by deadline day, i could see all 3 of them dealt.

That being said, at this point I am not sure we will make the playoffs, but it is nice to finally have a good reason to turn on the games.

I said it before and i will say it again...YES YES YES!

I mentioned that we needed support from the faithful Flames fans all around! This 6 game winning streak has been remarkable! We are back in the thick of the playoff race and only 3 friggin points out of 4th! That's home ice advantage!

The Calgary Flames are making an epic story for themselves and i truly believe that team deserves more than people are giving them credit for and it is starting to show they are making some serious noise! Yes they can and WILL make the playoffs!

You could argue that Darryl Sutter leaving had alot to do with their big turnaround. Apparently there was alot of people on edge wondering what was going to happen next via trade or what not. Feaster has been a very positive influence on this team and let guys like Iginla and Kipper know that they were going nowhere. He is very pleasant and i am happy to have him. It does not take away from the superb team effort this team is putting forward. Morrison on top line has been a GREAT result thus far. Jackman has REALLY impressed me with his time on the top PP unit..we need that big body up front.

Fact is is this team is having more fun and they seem alot more relaxed and are enjoying themselves knowing they can do great things. Look forward to Flames playoff hockey people! I love the Flames and i believe in them! GO FLAMES GO!
