We recently wrapped up FN's ranking of the Flames top-15 prospects under 24. TJ Brodie topped the list, while Mark Jankowski came in at #15.
We'll re-order things next summer and I'm sure that list will include new guys like Sean Monahan, Emile Poirier and Morgan Klimchuk. For now, we'll look at the other hopefuls who didn't quite make the cut for various reasons this year.

The Calgary Flames announced the roster for their annual Prospect Development Camp held at WinSport July 10th to 15th, on Monday. The 45 man roster features the usual suspects like Sven Baertschi, Johnny Gaudreau and the recently drafted Sean Monahan but also listed 11 invitee players on tryout contracts.It's always interesting to look into these invitees and investigate as to whether or not any of these guys have the potential to become legitimate prospects.

I had a look at the Flames depth chart the other day.
I thought the situation for this season was going to be grim going into October. In fact, I was pretty sure that Feaster was positioning the team for a top-five pick in this year's draft deliberately. The quote from the Calgary Flames' website the other day about his perception of the talent available in the 2013 free-agent crop seemed to be sane, realistic and arguably backed up this belief.

Well, it's summer time (I guess. What it do, Nature Mom?)

The t-shirt is the only garment that offers appropriate range of motion and light fabric to keep you from overheating as your summer plans of world domination come to fruition.
We at Flames Nation know, when it comes to the shirt game, that you've got a lot of competition out there vying for your hard earned dollar and fashion acumen. We understand that you have choice, and sometimes that power can be overwhelming. Perhaps a helpful guide can point you in the right direction.
If the right direction you're looking for is a Flames Nation exclusive Got Loob? t-shirt. Otherwise we can't help you. On the other hand, here are 12 Very Terrific Reasons Why You Should Buy A Got Loob? T-Shirt.

It appears the Flames are finished window shopping for UFA's. Word is the club hasn't even bothered contacting Mason Raymond and probably the only other worthwhile player on the market given Calgary's needs is Mikhail Grabovski. Naturally, there hasn't been even a whisper that the team has any interest at all. So, absent any left field trades, what you see is likely what you get when it comes to the roster.
