SBN Reacts: The Front Office Edition

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports Are you happy with the job the Flames front office has done? 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...

A Roster Light On NHL Veterans Heads To Seattle Tonight

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports If you watch tonight you can get a good look at the Calgary Wranglers in Seattle.

The first on the list was how confident you were that the Flames have the right prospects in their system? The results are in and you're confident, but it's certainly not a slam dunk. At the end of the voting, 60% of you thought the Flames have the right horses in the stalls. Not great, but certainly better than 50%....

Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Calgary Flames fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate. Johnny Gaudreau, out. Matthew Tkachuk, out. Sean Monahan, out. After reading those names you would have the right to be depressed. HOWEVER, Brad Treliving took those lumps and added pieces that, dare we say, might make the Flames better in 2023. The sting of those bodies leaving was soothed by the additions...
