Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
As a team, Calgary finds itself in that unsexy middle of the pack, a no-man’s land that nobody wants to inhabit. For three years in a row now, they have been unable to get a playoff spot and for the four years before that, they lost in the first round. The Flames are never really terrible. They never had fewer than 90 points in any season between the last two lockouts, a standard that only the Detroit Red Wings and the San Jose Sharks also achieved in those same seven seasons.
The problem is they are never really good enough to excite anyone either – and that is an issue. While just all the contenders now went back to the starting blocks at some stage in their development, the Flames are just steady as she goes.
It’s doesn’t make for a great marketing slogan, does it?
We’re gonna be – you know – all right.
