Flames Not Getting Points In Losses

This is probably obvious, but hey, it's what we do.

Last year, the Flames were 41-29-12. Or in other words, they were 41-41. Being .500 in the NHL was not good enough for them to get into the playoffs last year, and it appears the team is going to be a .500 team again this year.

But what is even more worrisome is this: Of those 41 losses, 12 were overtime losses, which meant that the team collected points in 29% of the games it lost. So far this year the team is 7-9-1. It has only collected points in 10% of the games it has lost.

Three more games until Peter Maher's magical 20 game breaking in period is over and the Flames are bottom dwellers, who would have to jump six teams to get into a playoff position. It is not looking good.

How in the world did King and Feaster convince themselves that this team would compete for the division?

Furthermore, I think Peter Loubardias Ken King should be fired.

  1. Do you think King and Feaster actually believe the nonsense they spew to the public? Doubtful.

    Also, this site will not let me post using my google account, FYI this has been a problem for awhile. Anonymous it is...

  2. I figure a cocaine-fueled binge at the Elbow River Casino buffet convinced them that they could get away with it.

    That's what happens when you let a guy like King run the hockey operations side of your team when he's not qualified to do so. He hires equally unqualified guys like Jay Feaster and then they convince themselves they know what they are doing. Pretty simple.

  4. 'Google help guy' says you log to google, you log out. You log in again, but you 'de-click' the icon that says 'remember me' (so that it does not remember you). You should then be able to post comments.

    I was told that if you turn the security features off (ie: those words you have to enter on some sites to leave a comment), which this site has had turned off forever, cookies shouldn't be an issue. But you may want to clear those as well. May help.

    Otherwise, yes, I realize it was bullshit for selling tickets. We just play niave for commentary purposes.

  5. That solution works DB but why is this the only site that makes me log into google every time?

  6. I have no idea. I asked google help guy, and he didn't seem to know either. His solution was to turn off the sec feature, which has never even been on. I think I may make ya'll have to fill out the waterword. Im thinking it may reset the protocols on the server the site is on, maybe fix he problem.
