I don't think anybody would advocate for a 5-8 year rebuild like the Oilers. In saying that, if there ever was a year for the Flames to sell of their pieces and quickly accelerate the rebuilding process then this is the one to do it. Not everything has to be so black and white on this site, Calgary can without a doubt rebuild without going down the road of our neighbors to the north.
Shortened season? check
Ability to retain salary in a trade? check
Ageing yet still productive core pieces? check
Strong draft class from all accounts? check
These are opportunities that the Oilers did not have for the most part.
I can't help but to think that Calgary would be missing a HUGE opportunity here if they were to remain status quo at the deadline this season. We have stagnated as an organization and changes are needed. If 3-5 losses is what it takes to get management and ownership to realize this then I could get on board with that.
