This season has been well, horrid so far for the Flames and despite some bright spots (T.J Brodie, J.T Diebor, T. Jorbdie, and Michael Frolik's somewhat Vulcan-ish appearance), many are calling for rolling heads, call ups, line switching, and the return of the Flames retro sweaters. Well, maybe I'm just piling on with that last one but you get the point.

There's no shortage of opinions out there regarding what the Flames should do, so let's assume that you have the power to be the GM of the Flames but with a restriction on the number of moves you can actually make. Think you could fix the Flames in three moves? Let's get into it after the jump.

Post-Game: "Lucky" 13

The Calgary Flames haven't played great through a dozen games of the 2015-16 schedule. They'd probably admit as much. But they headed into Denver, Colorado tonight to play the Colorado Avalanche, a team with similarly unsteady footing in the Western Conference. After ekeing out a win against Edmonton on Saturday, it seemed a prime opportunity for the Flames to take that glimmer of momentum from Saturday and create some hope for the rest of the season.

Instead? All the warts of the 2015-16 Calgary Flames were on display for all to see once again in an uneven, occasionally ugly 6-3 loss to Colorado.

FGD #13: Visiting Jarome's New Home (7pm MT, SN West)

After their whirlwind victory on Saturday night over the Edmonton Oilers - their first regulation win of the 2015-16 season - the Calgary Flames tangle with one of the few Western Conference clubs that's as far-down in the standings as they are tonight when they visit the Colorado Avalanche.

The Flames (3-8-1) have quietly grabbed three points in their last three games - their shootout loss in Ottawa and their last-minute win in Edmonton - but otherwise have lacked momentum. They can try to manufacture some tonight against the Colorado Avalanche (3-7-1), who have lost two in a row and are hopeful to get back on track.

The puck drops just after 7pm MT on Sportsnet Flames and Sportsnet 960 The Fan!
