Unless Larsson's the clear cut BPA, as a close to a potential franchise defensemen as possible, Flames have draft to a forward. Couturier is unlikely since this team isn't bad enough to draft 1st overall but guys like Landeskog or Strome would be excellent choices. And with Bouwmeester, Giordano, Erixon and Brodie, the Flames aren't really hurting for high end defensive players. But yeah, this is a weak draft in terms of high end talent.

Listening to the after hours show once in a while is good for a laugh. Steinberg's a smart guy; he knows this team is going nowhere and that nothing will change until Darryl is fired, yet given his relationship with the Flames, he can't anything like that outright. But every so often, he slips and says something like 'this team is simply terribly constructed.' Really good host though.
