After all, it was their refusal to build through the draft that got them here in the first place. The Flames for years always looked for the quick fix whether it was Jokinen or Bouwmeester or Wideman. There is no quick fix.
Look at their depth chart and tell me they don't have more holes than we did in 2011.
We shall see how it works out. They are in much better shape than the Oilers were before Hall and Eberle were drafted.
If I am a betting man I would take Burkes plan for success over any plan Lowe concocted.
