Yeah, but are guys like Blake Comeau really going to be that effective in the future?

Calgary is probably the only team in the NHL bar the Red Wingsthat lacks a stud young player (Bartschi might be that in 2/3 years, but we can't say for sure right now) or an elite player early in their prime who'll likely be effective for the next 5 years. Sharks have Couture/Pavelski, Canucks have Kesler/Edler, and that alone should put them ahead of the Flames. The Wings are pretty terrible as well, but since the Wings have a better history of drafting/developing, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt over the Flames.

1. Flames
2. Wings

3. Sharks
4. Canucks
