4. Find a way to get Huberdeau and Kadri rolling once again
The 2022 off-season was the wildest in recent memory for Calgary, as they lost their two top point scorers from a season ago, while landing a Stanley Cup Champion and a fellow 115-point scorer, but unfortunately, the Flames big acquisitions didn’t quite fire in their first season.
It’s easy to point the finger at Darryl Sutter here, but neither Jonathan Huberdeau or Nazem Kadri looked like themselves all season long, and for this team to have any type of success, they need to get back to their best.
With youth and speed expected to be added to the roster for 2023/24, whether through the Wranglers or a trade, there is certainly avenues to increase their production immediately, so this should be priority No. 1 on the ice for Calgary next season.
