Rebuilding is never fun. There's no disputing that.
However, every team at some point comes to the realization that their best route to glory must run through the dreaded lands of a rebuild. The Calgary Flames came to such a realization, in 2013, after years of treading the waters of mediocrity and have since begun a retooling and rearming process to return them to relevance.

An anxiety appears to have been building in Calgary regarding the Flames' new management
team and their seemingly undying thirst for size and toughness. The debate
seems to ignite itself on the majority of message board and article comment
section, regardless the topic of the original post.

Last year, I took a stab at setting "reasonable" expectations for Sven Baertschi and absolutely nailed it... not.
So naturally, I'm the one who will attempt to attach expectations to the most unpredictable player set to suit up in the Flaming C this October.

As many of you may know, while the Calgary Flames have been furthering their rebuild through various moves like drafting a 20 year old and signing Derek Engellend, I've been wandering through Europe.
As a result, it's been tough to write and get things out due
to the lack of internet. I have however, managed, one way or another, to keep up
with all the important maneuvers made by the team. I did watch the Draft live (on
Satellite Internet which is just as slow and expensive as it sounds) and most of
Free Agent Frenzy on cafe and hotel internet hotspots and I've bunch of
opinions on it all I'd like to share after the jump.

I posted version 1.0 of my Mock Draft shortly after the NHL Draft Lottery (link), and there have been some changes in version 2.0. Drafts are extremely tough to mock, especially ones like this one with tons of varying opinions on players, but they're fun nonetheless.
