Another week, another round of fan questions. If you want to submit a question that will appear in this weekly feature, submit something here. This week, we talk about rebuild models, future offer sheets, over/under on Sven Baertschi's season and how many goals Brian McGrattan will manage this year.
We'll start with the longest question/answer...

After four years of teetering on the edge of the precipice, the Flames finally plunged head first into the abyss. The only pertinent question for the club now is how deep the hole goes.
last year, the season preview was titled battling the inevitable. Thanks to a confluence of circumstances - Iginla's pending free agency, the implosion of the goaltending, bad luck, bad roster construction - Calgary finally, inexorably, lost the battle and the organization was forced to finally do what so many fans and pundits had been suggesting for so long - begin the rebuild.

The season is just about upon us. Stock up the beer, fire up the DVR, prep your TV remote for a few angry tosses across the room. It was long summer and in some ways it's likely to be a long season as well. But we're glad it's here anyways.
As is our custom, FN writers got together and discussed a few of the team's key issues heading into action. Christian, Ryan (Pike), Ryan (Lambert), Book of Loob and Justin Azevedo shared their thoughts on where the Flames will place in the standings, who the club's goat will be and what the future holds as Calgary embarks on the rebuild.

A flurry of minor activity today as NHL teams start making their final roster moves in preparation for the start of the season. For their part, the Flames have waived another three players: Derek Smith, Ben Street and Blair Jones. Street and Jones are guaranteed to be shuttled off to Abbotsford if they clear, while the Smith move may simply be to give the Flames options if "something else" happens over the next 24 hours or so.
