"...There is a faction that say as soon as something goes wrong the crazies come out and talk about trading Iginla or Kipper. I respond, why is it crazy when the same club, with the same players, goes through the exact same thing every year and never wins? Why is that crazy? Sutter is historically a coach that either misses the playoffs or goes out in the first round. That’s the truth. Under Iginla and Kipper this team has been a failure, year after year. If one more person brings up the 04 run than I say move to Edmonton so you can live with all the other people who live in the past. That was 8 years ago! Failure since! So to summarize the culture, you have a G.M. who does nothing and shows the players he doesn’t actually do everything he can to make the team a winner, a coach who historically is not a winner at the NHL level, a captain who has grown complacent in Calgary, a roster that won’t get their energy level up for critical games against teams they must beat. The entire culture of the team is in shambles..."
