Michael Cammalleri hears the echoes.

It's difficult to avoid them. With the city in the throes of another playoff-free spring, they are reverberating — from Willow Park to Tuscany, from Lakeview to Falconridge.

For hollerers, there is a simple solution.

"Rebuild, rebuild, rebuild — that's the word you hear," the Calgary Flames forward said after Tuesday afternoon's optional practice at the Saddledome. "This whole rebuild thing? It used to be that you'd rebuild for how many years? Five years or whatever it was. So what are you calling it now? Rebuild? Restructure?

"I guess the moral of the story is, I plan to be on a competitive team here in Calgary next year. That would be my hope and I have confidence in that."
