Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,
The Calgary Flames may have a new coach, but unless the organization takes on a new direction, it won’t mean squat.
Fact is, the Flames had a good coach the last three years and fell short of their modest goal of making the NHL playoffs.
Their problems year after year don’t revolve around coaching issues, although it sure makes for a convenient excuse/scapegoat.
The problems in Calgary have long revolved around skill — or more precisely a lack thereof — both on the ice and in the scouting ranks.
Jay Feaster has paid lip-service to changing the organization’s approach by declaring it’s no longer acceptable to simply aim for one of the final playoff spots.
He says it’s time to start aiming for the top.
