Losers of four straight and participants for maybe 20 minutes in each of those contests, the Flames are a team that has yet to become comfortable with the demands of Mike Keenan. To the fiery coach’s credit, he’s been patient during the process, allowing his players time to adjust. But it’s becoming clear that not everyone is on board, and a shakeup seems inevitable.
Stephane Yelle, a solid defensive player who could add something to any team’s penalty kill, could be available. Center Craig Conroy, who has just two goals this season despite playing alongside Jarome Iginla and Alex Tanguay for long stretches, is another candidate. His contract brings a $2.85 million hit, but it only goes through this season and becomes more manageable for another team to assume with each passing day. Calgary would like to add scoring (who wouldn’t?), but might be willing to take on a veteran forward with leadership experience and a winning background.
Atlanta’s Bobby Holik, perhaps?
