RW Matt Coronato

While the Flames have got some solid wingers in Martin Pospisil, Walker Duehr, Andrei Kuzmenko and Jakob Pelletier, it's former first-round pick Matt Coronato that has the best chance of being a driving force for this team in the future. Like Zary, Coronato projects to be a second or third line winger on a playoff team, and if he can find consistent playing time amongst elite level forwards, he could be a fantastic goal scorer.

At this current point, Coronato has just two goals and five assists in 31 career games, but has spent much of his time this season on the Flames fourth line, much to the dismay of the fans as the season has continued to slip away. At just 21-years of age, he's had less time to develop than other Flames prospects, but his production at the AHL level has proven that he's got incredible potential, so while the Flames don't have many future stars on their roster, they've got some very solid middle-six players ready to step up.
