I remember ray ferraro saying about yakupov that he thought his ceiling was maxim afinaganov

Some draft years are just really bad at the top

Also Bennett was seen as a sure thing, there was a lot of talk the canucks wantes to move up to 1 or 2 and draft reinhart, but jason botchford said last year or maybe 2 years ago, they actually wanted Bennett

It's a safe bet that people do know half his contract has expired. You know it, Brad Treliving knows it, whoever runs Capfriendly knows it, the registrar(s) at NHL Central know it, Murray Edwards must know it, Hamilton's agent knows it, and it's a safe bet Dougie Hamilton himself knows it. That's seven right there. There are probably others, but who's to say?

My point is the flames don't exactly have a lot of time to build a legitimate contender like they did three years ago. They can't be a team slipping into a wild card spot and missing the playoffs anymore. They need to get a lot better.
