Success in the salary cap era is all about getting value for the dollar. The successful teams find bargains while the non-contenders are paying premiums for every goal scored or prevented. As the season winds down, let’s see where the Calgary Flames have value, and where they don’t.

1. No intensity
Of course, it's not officially official or anything just yet, but that loss to Columbus (in the shootout though it was) following the one to Edmonton has me pretty well convinced.

Once again the Flames find themselves on the short end of the stick, and with eight games left, there isn't much of a stick left to grasp to. Going into this game, it was viewed that Calgary was going to need to go 6-2-1 to make the playoffs; well if it's true, they burned the one and only extra time loss they have been afforded. It was a pretty tight game for the most part, but when you're playing a team you're trying to catch, you have to find a way to get the two points. Colorado did, Calgary did not.
