Boy the comments aren’t kind in that IG post. Can the Flames turn it around? Here’s what they need.


  • The coach has lost the room. Players want out. They aren’t being drawn together as a team. The last ditched effort will be to return to the playoff lineups even though that leaves more problems at C.
  • Waive a couple players. Can’t shake up things to the core? Then drop some deadweight. By Ritchie, Rinaldo, Simon.
  • Balance goaltending. Don’t run both into the ground.
  • Limit minutes. Giordano.
  • Increase minutes, Gaudreau.

Do a few things to right the ship and maybe things will figure out (doubt it).

Otherwise, nothing this year will solve the gaping holes at RW and C depth. Nothing.
