Brad Treliving Excited For The Season To Start

from Kristen Odland of the Calgary Herald,

“Let’s get going here,” the Calgary Flames general manager was saying on Wednesday at The Hamptons Golf Club. “We’re ready. I think when that calendar turns over to September, these last few days seem to creep by. But we’re ready to go. We’re eager to get going....

“You can definitely sense an excitement in town,” said Treliving who is entering his second season as the Flames’ GM. “But I don’t think it changes anything for us.”

Well, one thing has changed.

Especially after Calgary’s surprisingly impressive 82-game campaign and even more surprisingly impressive post-season.

“Last year at this time, people were questioning whether we could walk and chew gum at the same time,” Treliving said. “Last year at this time, the only belief was within the four walls (of the Flames dressing room). The expectation for us is going to be no different here.

“We also have to temper the comments outside. Regardless of what people think, you have to go out and do it. That’s the challenge for our group.”
