Now that the season is over; we can sit back and ask ourselves what is next. What are the Flames priorities? Obviously, the Flames have a wish list. Guess what? I have one too. Since this is my party, my list is more important.
So here is my list in no particular order, of what I would do if I were the General Manager. Watch out Brad; I am gunning for your job.
NUMBER ONE GOALIE
The Rangers backup is a steady goalie who ready for more responsibility. Antti is a steady goaltender who plays the angles and will give the Flames a chance to win every game.
I love Antti. He is consistent. He is who he is. You know what you are getting—a starting, capable goalie.
TOP SIX RIGHT WINGER
Patrick is a sniper who would fit in perfectly with Johnny and Sean. Eaves is a smooth skater who thinks with his head. He would be a perfect stop-gap. Flames could probably, sign him for a 2-year window, long enough for prospects to come in. The native Calgarian should be brought home.
NUMBER FOUR DEFENCEMAN
Kyle is the best option for the Flames. He is a steady, dependable stay home dman. Kyle would cut down on the defensive mistakes. He would bring a stable veteran influence in the dressing room. He leads by example. He would a great help to the top three in the lineup.
These players would not fill all the holes, but they would go a long way to making the Flames a better hockey team next season.
