Calgary's prospect cupboard is still bare, and if it isn't, then it won't be ready for another 2 years. We're starting to see them filter in to the main lineup, but our prospect depth is nowhere near other teams. We have very little top-six talent / potential. We have a plethora of potential role players in the system, but that's not good enough, IMO.
I honestly think that Pelech & Negrin will be Gems but I agree with what you say on a whole. The thing is Sutter started with nothing and the Flames seem now to be a point where Sutter can take more risks, we have a base of third/fourth liners and depth D-Men and Goalies (or so we all think who knows maybe there is another hidden Gem in these kids we've all written off as grinders). Now he can risk drafting those risker players, like a Tedenby, IMO.
