It’s February: trade deadline month. No matter what the Flames choose to do over the next three weeks and change, we should probably just roll with it. After all, who saw this coming?
The Flames, like pretty much all teams, could be better. Another high-end forward could make them that much more threatening; another scoring depth forward could make them that much more difficult to defend against. Another defenceman could shore up the concerns surrounding the current group: three rookies, some injuries to veterans, a tendency towards lapses at times. Another goalie, one with less mileage on his body, could give the Flames that much more confidence no matter who’s in net.
