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
Defense is the hardest of all hockey positions to master and Dion still needs a ton of polish. He's lived up to his billing but he's not complete, not just yet. To judge Dion's capability is not conjecture, no matter where you call home.

The Oilers suck and will for years to come. They have 2 good young fowards thats it clown.
Defence might even be worse than the Laffs. Gonna be a few years to the playoffs at least you idiot.
Garon may or may not be a number 1 goalie, hasnt played enough games.
hey kid, hows the x box and game boy ? lol

Phaneuf is 10 times better than any oilers defenceman. Who is even close to him ? Souray another McCabe, power play specialist but useless in his own end ? lol How many games did Souray play again this year ? He is injury prone and the oilers actually did the habs a favour by taking him off their hands.
face it kid, you would be happy to have him on your team any day of the week.
Maybe he does have an injury or maybe its a family situation. he is only hurting himself if he has any hopes of playing in the 2010 Olympics.

well one thing is for sure. phaneuf is certainly better than any defenceman the oilers have lol
more lame talk from a jealous oilers fan of a flames player they would love to have on there non playoff team lol

He scored 50 goals this year with a center thats really a second line player. If he ever had a true number 1 line center he would get 60 plus easy.
Huselius and Tanguay should be traded. Neither did much in the playoffs. They need 2 playmaking centers, 1 for Iggy and 1 for the second line plus another winger that can score for the second line.
A puck moving defenceman would be good to.
Erickson and Hale were pylons on defence. Why Sutter signed Erickson as a free agent boggles my mind.
Hale he traded for as depth but played more than he should have.
I thought with the limited talent they have up front they played very well taking the Sharks to game 7.
