This might be a bad time for a management change

This is going to be a really important off-season for the Calgary Flames, with a lot of key decisions to be made before the puck drops again in October. One of the most common questions I’ve been asked – by followers on Twitter, by friends, by my relatives – is whether the Flames will retain general manager Brad Treliving. My level of confidence that he’ll be back varies depending on the day.

But the more I think about it, the more I think this might not be the best summer for a management shake-up.

If you want to point to one aspect of Treliving’s reign that has been an unabashed win, it’s drafting and development.
