If there's any consensus about the Flames current situation, it's that the club lacks offense. Let's be more specific and say that the lacks club high-end difference makers, especially with the way Iginla struggled to take on the big boys last year. While I'm actually fairly high on some of the Flames depth guys (Glencross, Moss, Dawes, Hagman) the fact of the matter is, the club doesn't currently possess a top 6 that will contend with the better teams in the league.

This weekend's activities in Los Angeles passed by with the Flames doing very little.

Making chicken salad usually does actually require the proper ingredients, if you catch my drift. That noted, even by Calgary's standards, this weekend's series of selections was straight vanilla, no chaser.
