Dube demotion what’s best for future; Kylington’s time is now

You win some, you lose some.

That’s the way some Calgary Flames fans are looking at the last of the team’s moves ahead of the start of the new NHL season this week.

The loss came when it was determined Dillon Dube would be returned to the American Hockey League after an inconsistent training camp.

Considering he started with a shot on the top line alongside Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan, it was a long fall for the 21-year-old top prospect. But the truth is, the move was the right thing to do for both the team and the player — fan grumblings aside.
