The Flames really have no reason to rush Phaneuf's development. The defensive corps is pretty stable now. If there's a lockout next season, he's definitely going to spend 2004-05 at the AHL level. Remember, this is the most difficult position to learn. Suter & Coburn can be used as benchmarks at comparing progress.

One player, who could have a decent chance to make the big club next year is Eric Nystrom. Expect McAmmond to be shown the door some how, opening up a spot on LW.
