Time for Flames to take a long look in the mirror

Yeesh. The Flames lost again.

Now, the Blackhawks are a great team, but six games? I believe the Flames could've won, but now they need to improve in the off-season.

Mike Keenan is as good as gone and GM Darryl Sutter should be on the hot seat, too. One thing I believe the Flames should do is get more speed and skill, especially on defense. I also believe Olli Jokinen should be shopped around and maybe even Miikka Kiprusoff.

For next year Dion Phaneuf really needs to step up and bounce back from a bad season and Calgary absolutely has to sign Mike Cammalleri or else they could take a step back.
