CALGARY - Day after day, the Calgary Flames are being told their destiny is they’ll sleep with the fishes.
At every turn, the predictions are always the same, the Flames are pegged to end up at the bottom of the NHL ocean during the coming 2013-14 season.
It’s fair to say hearing those prognostications becomes tiring and could possibly wear them down.
Flames GM Jay Feaster is well aware what pundits are saying about his team, but once again, he reiterated Friday the organization won’t stand for a losing attitude to permeate throughout.
“I don’t think we’ll win 82 this year. Yeah, I don’t think we’ll win all 82 games. It’s a hard league,” Feaster said asked of the number of victories he believes his squad will compile.
“We’re going to play an 82-game schedule. We’re going to play hard. We’re going to compete hard. We’re going to go out there with the expectation of winning. We are not going to go out there with the expectation of ‘Oh, we’re young. Oh, we’re rebuilding, therefore results don’t matter.’ Results do matter."
