08:21 AM ET 10.11 | The worst fears of a nervous Flames faithful are coming true after two games. Too slow. Too charitable (in terms of giveaways.) Too sluggish. Too old? "I don't know what to say, honestly," Alex Tanguay muttered in the aftermath of the latest debacle. "We've played two terrible games to start the season. Both of them were absolutely -- as you guys saw -- terrible. This is not who we are." ... [Said Brent Sutter:] "I don't mean that in a negative way when I say we have two star players," he said. "The reality is that we do. [Miikka Kiprusoff and Jarome Iginla]. Everyone else, they've got to play a certain way ... We have to get out of this funk."

They'll have to play better to look slow, sluggish, 'terrible'.

They need to increase their physical game. If you think you can't win, whatever, at least be tough to play against. Worked for the Flyers in the lean years.

They looked plenty physical when playing against the Pens. I don't think that is necessarily the problem.

We agree on occassion. Shortly thereafter one or both of us come to our senses and its business as usual.

That was a bit unfair Baun-ded. DWI and cromster, as well as all other Pens and Flyer fans have discussions which are cool, calm, based on facts, not opinion, and help to educate others on the forces at play in NHL games and coaching philosophy. Oh God, wheres the Jack Daniel's? I'm either drunk or I need to be!

You must have been drunk when you were talking of the Capitals' great "defense" last night in the other thread. I was gonna ask what you were drinking this a.m. Good times, Slap. It's all about the good times. It's 5:00 p.m. somewhere! :)

Mr Mumbles is a great coach and will lead the Flames to the promise land

Crosby sucks! ;)

Soooooo...a 2 game losing streak qualifies as a funk? I hate to think what a four game losing streak would be considered.

LOL! My drinking days are mostly memories now DWI! Watching the Caps makes me miss them more than most other things. :-)

If I was the Flames, I'd take that headline as a compliment at this point.

Some people have no sense. Some have some sense. DWI has more than that. She has senses.
