Abbotsford gets a chance to end a rough month on a high note with a pair of games starting tonight against the Chicago Wolves. The Heat have only won 2 of their last 10 contests and have fallen to 4th in the Western Conference as a result (although they are now just 3 points out of 11th thanks to a high level of parity in the AHL this year).

This is a continuation of a series in which I propose a method of rebuilding the Flames organization. For a frame of reference, you can go to the first in the series here. The Flames have at their disposal four 1st round draft picks resulting from trades of Bouwmeester, Iginla and Kiprusoff, as well as their own. In addition, they have amassed five more picks in the other six rounds, with only the 3rd and 5th rounds excluded. 

Draft Day 2013 - The Gathering

My goal on draft day is to acquire a future 1st line center. Two if I can swing it.

The halls have been decked and the turkey's eaten. Now is the time to fearfully step on bathroom scales and brave the malls to return that sweater your well meaning aunt bought for you. Oh, and actually enjoy ome hockey for a change.

- First order of business - most of the Gaudreau shirts have either been delivered or are in the mail. I only have a handful left in my possession, but they should be out the door by the end of the weekend at the latest. Thanks to everyone who ordered a shirt and I hope you're happy with it (or them if you got more than one).

How to Rebuild the Calgary Flames - A Four Year (and a bit) Plan - Part Three

This is a continuation of a series in which I propose a method of rebuilding the Flames organization. For a frame of reference, you can go to the first in the series here.

The Starting Point

 We left off at the last article having traded away Matt Stajan and Jey Bouwmeester. That was just the beginning.

The roster at the beginning of a shortened 2012-2013 season is pretty weak, but this team isn't going to win anything built the way it is. The last three seasons have been wasted, in my opinion, on a snipe hunt. I'll post it a little further down, but for now let's look at the bodies moving in and out before the season starts.

Does Baertschi make the team out of camp?
