What Rebuild?

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

Asked at Wednesday's post-deadline press conference how long it might be until the organization sees the fruits of its recent purge, Feaster made a troubling declaration: "Murray Edwards told me last evening that he expects to be in the playoffs next year," said Feaster.

"So, there's my marching order."

The room went silent, which was in stark contrast to the citywide gasps from horrified fans and the laughter from the rest of the hockey world.

Just when it appeared the Flames were finally ready to move wholeheartedly in the right direction, Edwards issued the type of directive that got this franchise into this mess in the first place.

Instead of building slowly towards something the city can eventually be proud of again, comments like that suggest the organization is destined to, once again, ignore the virtues of patience and better judgment by aiming for something that is not only completely unattainable but counterproductive.
