I thought this was going to be a link to Craig'sList.
Good news for the Flames? Their first two picks were Monahan and Poirier. Monahan could well be the rock on which they can stand to get out of that morass, and I've seen a bit of Poirier as well - talented, honest player though not a guy I spent a lot of time watching, if you know what I mean. Sven Baertschi is a kid with upside.
The bad news?
- First and foremost, look at the face on Feaster.
- Dennis Wideman is their top defenseman. Giordano is their #2. After that it's retreadsville. The top D prospect is Wotherspoon, a Canadian WJHC vet who played with Seth Jones in Portland.
- Their top six is Cammalleri, Hudler, Stajan, Glencross and...if they're lucky, Baertschi and Backlund. If they're not, David Jones and Lee Stempniak.
- The only goalies they've signed are Karri Ramo and Joey MacDonald. Thomas, Bryzgalov, and Theodore are the only FA options out there - retreadsville rather than a guy who might be the next Craig Anderson.
The have more cap space available than anyone other than the Jets and Islanders, and just about anyone on the FA list would have improved that team. They didn't win FA. They are AWFUL. Who's the projected #1 overall because only a lottery loss will keep him from being a Flame.
Are you not entertained?!?!
