As we know, the Calgary Flames don't like to use the word rebuild, but given the current state of the franchise, it's certainly the best path forward as they look to build a strong team for the opening of their new arena, likely to be completed by the beginning of the 2026-27 season. With many veterans currently on this team, it's likely to look like a very different lineup for game one in the new building, but now the quesiton has to be asked, which current Flames will be on that lineup for a historic night?

Unfortunately, it won't be a lot of the current names, as the Flames have struggled to land elite level talent, and while they've certainly got some solid young pieces, it's safe to say that the significant building blocks are yet to be put in place. So let's take a look over the Flames current roster, and predict the players that will be on the team in three years time when Calgary finally says goodbye to the SaddleDome and welcomes a new, fresh arena.
