We're still less than 24 hours removed from the Johnny Gaudreau Show, but the business of training camp will soon need to be formally addressed amidst all the swooning. I enclosed a video of his three assists last night above, because wowzers, that's why.

But the Flames NHL roster sits at 33 bodies and the club is required to get it down to 23 by 3pm MT on Tuesday.

Here's how they could (or should) do it.
