Patients Key For Flames This Season

“We get paid to stay patient,” said Burke, who joined the organization in early September. “It’s not fun, but that’s what we’re paid to do. As long as you believe the blueprint is going to work and the plan is a sound one. I’m not saying it’s my long suit. It certainly isn’t. Patience really isn’t in the first or second part of my vocabulary, but that’s what we get paid to do.”
After failing to qualify for a playoff appearance in each of the past four seasons, Flames general manager Jay Feaster began selling off assets to kick-start a rebuild.
“Predictions for the season, I don’t make those. We’re going to do the best we can and see where it goes. From my perspective, this is a transition that had to take place and it’s well underway.”
