Problem is, they're only going to get forwards with "question marks" to sign in Calgary (after all, unless you're willing to overpay, veterans don't normally like to play for re-building teams). Sometimes those "question mark players" are able to resurrect their careers; others just fade away badly.

They (management) didn't have the mandate to "rebuild" at any point last year from ownership - so their hands were pretty much tied.
