And yes, I'm a Canucks fan, but Calgary is hardly even a rivalry any more, so I don't really care if the Flames fail. Welcome to irrelevance and enjoy the stay. Unless you rebuild, it's going to be a while.
Forbort remains a massive massive risk for ever making the NHL at this point. If he ever does, it will probably be at least 4 years from now. A prospect like Forbort in no way helps the Flames, who are missing immediate offensive talent, on their rebuild.
