If ever there was a summer to be untrustworthy or disappointed in the Calgary Flames front office, this one had the potential. It started with Johnny Gaudreau leaving. Then a bunch of spare parts signings, then Matthew Tkachuk wanting out. BUT Brad Treliving turned that nonsense into Jonathan Huberdeau, Mackenzie Weegar and Nazem Kadri and dare we say, the Flames might be better?
As all of this was happening we asked you, the reader, what you're confidence level in the Flames management was and those results are in. (Hint: you're confident)
92% of you are confident in the work Flames GM Brad Treliving has done and why not? It's not too often you can trade a 100+ point player and get a 100+ point player in return, along with a young, good defenceman. Oh, and then go sign another NHL top tier player (Kadri) coming off a Stanley Cup.
The "Summer Of Brad" started out rocky and people weren't too thrilled with the Flames GM, but after all the dust settled, Calgary may have had the best offseason in the NHL.
