At the start of the season, the Flames looked like they could have had a formidable top nine. The caveat: it relied on several players needing to meet, and in some cases exceed, career expectations, with little room for error. There were a lot of errors.
Now that the season is over, I will play armchair general manager and provide my thoughts on the current roster and coaching staff. I have categorized them by position and whom I think should be in Calgary. This is based solely on the players that I was able to observe this year.
