It’s no secret that the Calgary Flames have a very formidable top four defense with the acquisition of Travis Hamonic. Now…

With Michael Stone signed to 3 year deal worth all the money (or 3.5M, whichever you prefer) it’s time to think about who should join him on the Calgary Flames bottom pair. There are a few options, both in the organization, and one UFA who presents and intriguing option. One thing to keep in mind with this last spot is that he’ll be limited to ~10-15 min. per night facing the lower lights on other teams, this makes the idea of bring up a farm hand much more palatable.

With that in mind, here are 3 players I think the Calgary Flames should look at as an option to play with Michael Stone on the Bottom pair.
