Keep looking for the Bennett/Forsling type players. Even if the Flames take a gamble on a Kotkaniemi or Dubois and it busts, they will have the cap to make those mistakes. But the gamble could pay off.
Ö add talent that comes with sweeteners.

I hate the idea of signing FAs because Flames are in a position to help cap crunch teams for a price.

Signing Debrusk is a waste. Even if we trade Mangiapane. There has to be a Debrusk type player on a stupid contract some team regrets signing that we could take in exchange for picks and prospects.

I know we need to ice a real NHL calibre team but Iíll be massively disappointed if Connie signs Debrusk.

Itís been quiet, but hoping Florida can finish it off tonight and the real offseason can begin.
I fully expect him to start game one of the season.

Iíve seen this show before.

This show? It's only been one episode - the trade deadline, where something allegedly happened with someone higher up in the Flames not agreeing to something Conroy was trying to do.

I'm sure he'll be gone before the draft this month.

Is Debrusk better than Mangiapane? Debatable.

But Debrusk plus the return we would get for Mangiapane is definitely better than Mangiapane

Yep, definitely down with the logic as long as Debrusk is 3 or 4 years.

No thanks on Debrusk. Not sure why we need to overpay another middle 6 guy at this point.
