In reality, it hasn't played out that way which is unfortunate. I think it's time to turn the page and a roster shake-up is needed, but it won't be easy to make big changes this year.
There are only so many quality players on each team in a cap. The Flames spent all their cap space on 9 forwards (includes Ryan and Lucic) 4 d-men and 2 goalies...

their depth is Dube and Valimaki. (ELC) The high paid players are not able to carry the slugs filling in the roster.
