I know he is a long shot. But of any players the Flames have waiting in the wings, he is the most talented.

And like I said, he would have to be good enough to get a spot in the top six to do it.

Now I know that the stronger teams do tend to shy away from young players taking key roles in their lineups so if the Flames have enough talented bodies to preclude the youngster from taking a spot, that is okay with me. However, if there is a major shortage of talent at center ice (say if Langkow bolts), and if they are unable to recruit or trade for suitable replacements, the Flames could hardly be described as other than a rebuilding team. It wouldn't be the first time a rookie has been used. Lombardi actually had an excellent year under those circumstances.
