Michael Cammalleri isn't bothered by the fact that the Calgary Flames are poorly regarded by bookies.

"If that's what the experts want to say, that's fine," Cammalleri said. "We know we're not a favorite, but we like our group. We like our team. Team is the important thing. We play a sport where team play is exemplified more than any other sport. If we can become a good team, those odds change quickly." Any team is obviously capable of defying the odds, especially in a shortened season, but that doesn't mean that most will. Going into the season, Calgary should be regarded as a bubble team in the playoff race at best.
