Flames Blow it up!

Humiliating. We've seen this movie before.

Time to rebuild. Tre should go for hiring Ward. No idea how you can make the guy your full-time coach after the total fiasco of the playoffs.

Markstrom and Tanev are good signings, but the team culture hasn't changed.

Something's gotta give.. Maybe it's time to become a Krakens fan.

I don't know about blow it up. But were in year 5 of Johnny/Monahan its time for one to go. If Johnny doesnt want to stay then him. If we can resign him I think Monahan is a better guy to give up as he's a pure floater.

We need guys who give a ####.

I'm not one to overreact to early season woes, but I wouldn't mind a true scorched earth rebuild - something we've never had. I'm sure we could get a ton of quality assets for our prime aged players.

I'm just not sold on Lindholm - Monahan as a cup caliber 1 2 bunch at center. Both great goalscorers but neither brings much dynamic play through the middle of the ice.

If we didn't have the nicest jerseys in the league I'd walk.

Boggles the mind that Treliving decided to hire yet another unproven, 'bargain bin' head coach. Boudreau stated he would coach anywhere. Gerard Gallant is still out there... Seriously, Brad. Bite the freakin' bullet and get a proven head coach for once.

I've been an advocate for a retool for a long time but it would be a little bit tough to swallow a Gaudreau trade when he's been legitimately good to start the year.

I would, however, explore moving Giordano and Backlund.

I mean, your back up is getting shelled. You knew he sucked, that's why he isn't your starter. Probably a different story with Marky. Certainly three less goals from what I saw.

Not sure this is the right thread on game 6 of the season and your backup currently in net.

Though, I am getting concerned that nothing has changed though. If we have another mediocre season it might be time to just scorch the team so we can be back with a younger and hungrier team in a few seasons.

Also don’t want the Flames to miss out on Shane Wright if they do plan to rebuild.

All it takes is one trade deadline to have people overpay and retool on the fly.

Road retros are nice. Home retros not so much.

Markstrom will win us enough games that we should finish 4th in the division.
Toronto, Montreal and Winnipeg are clearly better teams.

Then we can see another 1st round exit and be mediocre as that is the Flames way.

The organization and most fans are always happy with that, so why set your targets higher and blow anything up.

Well, his value was low after last season.

You might want to trade him while he’s playing well.

...yet it still wouldn’t erase the fact we have 0 goals, and seem entirely okay with getting absolutely destroyed.

This team is like Todd Bertuzzi.

Gutless.

I’m still not sure Winnipeg is any better.

Montreal and Toronto are the class of the division this year - then really it’s the rest

I would have liked to see what this team looked like in front of a competent coach, but I don't think we'll see that before BT is fired or players are moved.
