What were the Flames missing?
Wed, April 23, 2008

The good news in the Game 7 loss to the Sharks was the Flames showed enough character to take the series against a favoured team to the limit, especially when they trailed after five games.

The bad news is they were thrashed when it mattered most.

What happened to the Flames? What were they missing in their lineup to put them over the edge and wins a playoff series? Have your say in our forum.

Move to pull Kipper stinks

The Sharks lack heart and leadership. Thornton as good as he is, isnt a leader and neither is Marleau. That is why Calgary will win in 6. Iggy is a leader with a huge heart. He will give or take a hit to make a play and drop the gloves.

Campbell was a good pick up at the trade deadline but they needed a veteran with leadership to give this under achieving ( in playoffs ) any hope of doing any damage this year.

If the Flames win tonight maybe its over in 5.

Don't answer to this comment until then. I am not debating this - I am just stating a fact that is about to happen. Calgary will upset the Sharks, then they will upset Detroit and play the finals in the west vs Colorado or Anaheim.

Say what you will about the Sharks, Calgary has had their number for some time. When you respect a team but are not in awe of them, and you have regualrly beat them, it come a little easier. It will be a tough series, but Calgary will come out on top.

About Game 1, from a Flames standpoint, is that they battled hard for the puck, at least through the first 58 minutes! But no time for laurels as the Sharks are a high-end team barely denied by the finish. Or was it by the 'Finnish'?

Wow, go Flames go! Gee if sj loses tonight, well you may have to kiss them bye bye again. Iginla over Thornton anytime cause he is a superstar! Kippie is also better that Nabakov.

Flames in 6.

7 over 2 maybe again!!!

i'll be extremely surprised if the sharks lose the series. though i suppose it is possible if there are some injuries or maybe some better players are having a few "off-games". i guess anything's possible but i don't think that the flames will. they might make it go to a sixth game but not win the series. (in my opinion)

this is what the paly-offs are aboout. you can forget the regular season and start with a clean sheet. the flames were more ready and capitalize on their chances. it's surprising tho how Joe Thornton can not score or generate any chances against them...
Peter, 2008-04-10 07:24:58

Not a sniff....

did anyone chcek the scoresheet from last night. Forget any of the Sharks players..

If Iginla and K-soff get that same thing going like in 04, this wont go past 6 games....

Thornton is overrated and Nabakov hasnt proven anything. Marleau tends to disappear around this time of year.

Of all the first rounders, this one could see an upset.

Joe Thornton needs to have a good series if the Sharks are going to win. He has never gone past the first round. The Flames will probably play Phaneuf and Regehr and they will hit him every chance they get. It will be a long, physical series and I wouldnt be surprised if the Flames do win.

The Flames are a Jekyll & Hyde team. They have been horrible at home all season. For the rare games when they have played as team they are unbeatable, but for the most part they have been average and many times below average. If they don't smarten up at home this series will be over pretty quick....and not in their favour.
