rebuilding might be the answer... but at the same time less half of rebuilding teams turn it around in 5 years to become a contender... and even if teams do turn it around like that, they can't afford to keep the team together
Nicely done. The problem with the Flames future is that prospects are questionable. Our first rounders never lived up to the hype, whether that's from our scouts or player development, we need to address our drafting and development. Ideally, I'd like to see Brent Sutter in Abbortsford; I think he can bring a winning attitute and expectation from the foundation of this hockey club.
