    Interesting discussion about prospects. What it tells me is just how bad the Flames have drafted since Cliff Fletcher left Calgary to be the GM in Toronto in 1992. As they said, the cupboard is bare as far as prospects go. Reminds me the way the team was in the mid 90's under GM Al Coates. Pretty sad scenario.

    Yeah, the Flames have pretty much been a bust at the drafting table for an extremely long time.

    Doesn't seem to be a lot of accountability with the organization in the scouting department. Same guys for years drafted players. If they failed, they still kept their jobs. Under Darryl Suttter, we completely shut out Europe which was incredibly stupid. At least now, we are drafting European players whch is a start. Remember some of the absolute duds we drafted in the 90's like Nicholas Sunblad & Rico Fatta? Dallas drafted Iginla, not us. We did draft Dion Phaneuf & for awhile he looked like a blue chipper until his game started to deteriorate here in his third season. But our drafting record isn't something this team can be proud of & it is the core reason we are struggling.
