The Calgary Flames don't have the greatest prospects here in Los Angeles ahead of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. With no first or second round pick, many of the top players will have passed the team by before they draft for the first time in the third round. So will the Calgary Flames make a move to get themselves into the top 60 picks? Or the better question is, CAN the Flames get themselves into the top 60 picks?

Darryl Sutter isn't talking a lot down in Los Angeles, but I did get a few interesting tidbits out of his conversation with The FAN 960 that will run later today. The Flames don’t have a first round draft pick; in fact, they don't have a second round draft pick, so just what do we expect from them down here?

As the draft approaches on Friday, I figured it'd be good to get the final two pending Flames UFA's out of the way. So far, we've covered Conroy, Higgins and Nystrom, with debate going both ways on each guy. I think the final two will have much less debate surrounding them, as we move to Jamal Mayers and Brian McGrattan.

It's come up in both our previous articles on pending Calgary Flames UFA players (done so far: Craig Conroy and Chris Higgins), so I figure he's probably the next logical guy to profile. For the first time in his career, Flames first rounder Eric Nystrom enters free agency, and his return to Calgary is not necessarily guaranteed.

Forward Chris Higgins is next up on our profiles of potential unrestricted free agents for the Calgary Flames. He played just 12 games with the Flames, after being acquired from the New York Rangers on February 1st along with Ales Kotalik. His stint with Calgary was cut even shorter, thanks to a foot injury that sidelined him the final 14 games of the regular season.
