Also want to add, we're right in that sweet, sweet Barkov selection region again. Can we play stay there? Maybe add another prospect or two from some of the top tier teams around the league too? They don't need their future stars, we do.

I think it's fitting for Calgary that if Jarome was part of a trade that ushered in a new Era in Calgary in 1995; that he should usher in a new era by bringing a major young player back.

This team's hard to watch, it can't compete every night, it can't come close to competing with top tier teams in the league this year; too small, too slow, too old. At any given night there's a a total of 2-3 real centers on the ice; sometimes 1 when Backlund was hurt... Cannot win with this team, anyone that thinks that this could be a miracle 8th seed team is delusional. Time for a rebuild please.

It doesn't have to be a "guess we suck for half a decade and hope that this crop pans out"; because the Islanders, Oilers, Panthers, Jackets etc etc can tell you that that doesn't always work.
It should be "Lets move high end contracts, UFAs, players with major value for players that are NHL ready or already playing at the NHL level, be smart with UFA signings in the off season to get better every year". There are pieces in Calgary going forward that could make the team incredibly strong; but as a unit, this package stinks.
