Impatient with regards to current on-ice performance for the Flames team. enough. Drafting is another matter entirely.

The organization does have a tendency to rush skilled prospects to show, but ends up banishing them to the bottom six with limited ice-time because they don't produce enough. Boyd, Backlund and to an extent, Baertschi are examples of this.
