    I see you've never been been to a certain Flames fan website that has a dedicated Oilers thread over 4000 post long
    rhymes with Calgarysuck.com

    I'd talk about the Oilers' ineptitude in scoring, but you just summed it up for me: "4000 posts"

    Just need a true starting goalie and that team has big potential to be unstoppable.

    Fab 5 doing good work. Giordano is back to his Norris form and Lindholm has been an absolute revelation. How that guy has never scored more than 17 goals is beyond me.

    Good point.

    Not like The Flames with their 2 playoff appearances in the last 9 seasons.

    Model franchise.

    As an Oilers fan I hate saying this but...if they can figure goaltending out, they might be a contender.

    Nate Schmidt has made the Golden Knights a completely different team since return.

    It's clearly not better.

    Neither team has been good.

    That's why it seems odd Flames fans are so quick to throw stones in glass houses.

    Just trying to feel better about their team's failures I suppose.

    Anyway, I think Lindholm has been a huge addition to the first line. He adds some motor that the other two are lacking and had enough skill to keep up.

    Tkachuk is a monster on the second line.

    Pretty sure Giordano is going to tail off. He's not an 80 point guy. Still solid though.

    Treliving deserves a lot of the credit, he's done nothing but make trades every year trying to improve this team, many of them big, sometimes they don't work out, but it's rare he makes a bad deal. Made more good signings than bad and ofc he chose Bill Peters as well, pressure was really on Tree this off season.

    Crap, and here I was thinking our Vezina level goaltending was going to be sustainable.
