Reading all the stories here.... this is why the Flames could make the SCF tomorrow and it would never be the same again.

Back in 03-04 it sounds like a lot of us:

- were 20ish
- had no kids, possibly no spouse / SO
- jobs with fewer expectations
- had an abundance of time so that spending 4+ hrs in a bar / at the Dome every other day for 2 months was possible.
- had few financial commitments

I have none of those things now.

That was 2007. In 2004 we'd actually traded Noodles to the Rangers so we could get Simon.

When that goal went in, I've never been a part of something so loud.
I know today is all about scoring, but there's something special about a hard-fought 1-0 marathon in OT.

No. 2004 was a tough year on remotes but we've been incident free for at least a dozen years now.
