Thus far I've discussed the nature of Darryl's rise to the top of the organization and enhshrinement as hockey czar without really delving into his management methods. As the Flames front office became a Sutterarian hall of mirrors, Darryl was free to repeatedly indulge his rather idiosyncratic player acquisition and evaluation habits year-after-year.

That was by far the most entertaining game we've seen this year at the Scotiabank Saddledome, and sometimes when you go to a shootout, the coin flips the other way. That's what happened on Saturday night as the Calgary Flames battled back to tie the game on three seperate occasions, but ultimately never lead, falling 4-3 in a shootout to the now eighth place Los Angeles Kings.

As it stands today, at least four players have a legitimate shot at going first overall: defenceman Adam Larsson of the Swedish Elite League, and forwards Sean Couturier, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Gabriel Landeskog.
After looking through the numbers, I’m convinced that Nugent-Hopkins would be the wrong selection.
