They know it wasn't the best season on record, but they still appreciate everyone for standing by them anyway. The Flames family is a big one and the players seemingly know that support through the tough seasons is just as important if not more important than the encouragement they receive through the good years.
O Captain! My Captain!...
And another message from Matt Stajan..
Admit it, even when the Flames have a disappointing season, we're all still here, we're all still hoping for the best, and we're all still fans of this great game of hockey. It's what keeps us so close, cheering on the team that we love, and we keep coming back year after year.
Thank you, Calgary Flames, for making hockey worth watching! See you next season!
