Now that the 2013 campaign is done and over with for the Calgary Flames, it's time to pick at the corpse a bit. The season was disappointing overall for the Flames and it begs the question regarding which player had the most disappointing season overall.
We have a few contenders.

The season over, so it's about time for another FN roundtable. Ryan Pike, Vintage Flame, Ryan Lambert, BoL and Justin Azevedo took the time respond to some of my questions laying out and assessing Calgary's disappointing (half) season.
Feel free to post your own responses in the comments.

1. I don't know what I expected
So Jay Feaster held, as most general managers do at the end of the season, a nice long presser on getaway day in which he talked at length about all the stuff the Flames have planned for the offseason. I was particularly interested to hear this just to see the kind of dancing around Feaster did to explain his and the organization's state of mind, given that they actually in-real-life referred to it as a "rebuild."

The polls are closed and the results are in! On Monday, FN contributors shared their votes and rationale for the Flames 2013 award winners, but we left the ultimate decision up to FN readers. Today, we reveal the big winners (and one loser) as chosen by the FN community.

Not exactly Flame related (well maybe a little), but here's some thoughts bumping around my head as the first round kicks off tonight.
- Thanks to the lock-out shortened season, there are surprisingly lousy teams who made the cut this year. Toronto is the top of the list - they have absolutely abysmal underlying numbers, their bench boss is half mad, and I can't imagine Nazem Kadri is going to continue to lead the league in PDO forever. He's a quality youngster, but he's not the next Crosby.
