Kent Wilson was an honored guest on Sportsnet Radio FAN 960 on Tuesday afternoon as he joined me on the phone for some Flames prospects talk.  I've had the privilege of checking out Calgary's entry into the Young Stars Tournament in Penticton all week, and after the first two games involving the Flames, I wanted to get Kent's obersvations so far.  We also preview the start of training camp on Saturday, something FlamesNation will be all over.
