Dobber’s Offseason Fantasy Grades: Calgary Flames

For the last 19 years (12 with The Hockey News) Dobber has reviewed each team from a fantasy-hockey standpoint and graded them.

These questions are what I take into consideration when looking at the depth chart and the player potential on that depth chart.
