Yeah, as a Blues fan, I'm embarrassed by the kiddies who have been coming into the thread and posting about how lousy Calgary's prospect pool is. The Flames have got a decent stable of prospects at every position. The highlighted ones especially, and of course Sven Bärtschi and TJ Brodie, I would take for the Blues' prospect pool in a heartbeat.
Gaudreau has big-league skills, but he's just so dang
Glencross is a solid player, and would be a welcome addition to the Blues' third line, and to the second line of most other teams.
That said, I'm not impressed by Bouwmeester, and would not want to pay what the Flames' fanbase thinks he's worth. Would
rather try to swing a deal for Giordano, but that seems to be a non-starter with the Flames' fans, which is understandable.
I'd like to see if there's a deal that could be made for St. Louis home boy Chris Butler and Mikael Backlund. I don't want to say that Rattie is off the table in such a deal, but I'd be
hesitant to give him up...
