If the Flames don't want to go through an Oiler-esque rebuild, trading every veteran is a really bad idea. You need someone on the roster with some experience to show the young guys what to do and how to be successful in the NHL. Look at the Oilers right now, while they have a bevy of top notch prospects who are doing pretty well, those kids have to bear the pressure of carrying the team while they're still trying to adapt to the NHL. It's a big mistake to down that route.

Ideally, you want to keep two of Wideman, Giordano, Bouwmeester, and one of Tanguay, Cammalleri, Iginla. You need to keep some level of stability in net too otherwise every mistake made ends up as a goal against, potentially ruining a players confidence and ability to take chances. Which is why keeping Kipper might not be such a bad idea. And penciling in Ramo as the number one next year is pretty bad idea too.
