Well the final battle of Alberta was supposed to mean more than this. Instead it's just draft posturing as the Flames look to give away a worse pick to the Islanders. That's not what people were hoping for.
The Oilers consist of Connor McDavid and little else of substance. McDavid has been stellar given the cast, but there's not enough there to work with to be a playoff team. Chiarelli has obliterated the Franchise.
As for the Flames, they're not much better. Johnny Gaudreau is second in the league after McDavid in percentage of team points and that's with missing some games. The third and fourth lines have been particularly abhorrent with high dollar contracts yielding little to no reward.
Well, here goes nothing.
