The Same Flames

from George Johnson of the Calgary Herald,

Hope is ebbing. Unrest growing. Blame moving out and spreading swiftly, like ripples in a still pond.

It’s all so numbingly, distressingly familiar.

With a fourth consecutive springtime of playoff-less hockey in the offing, will the Calgary Flames actually institute meaningful change or continue the familiar pattern of caution that has characterized this organizational philosophy?

Be warned: The usual, hollow post-failure vow to savagely, thoroughly critique the entire setup, top to bottom, and make the necessary alterations won’t cut it anymore. The rot has gone on too long.

They are, if you can bear to look, closer to 30th overall than eighth in the Western Conference.
