And the Flames are more than 1 player from "recoverying".
I think this "rebuild" or whatever you call it will be beneficial in many ways. More so for the fans' sanity. I mean, right now we suck but we really don't have much hope for the future. At least if we have guys like MacKinnon, Baertschi, Backlund, Brodie even maybe Irving, we can suck, but we will always have this hope that it will get better. I need that hope. Right now, it is a very dark with no light at the end of the tunnel.
