While this roster pales in comparison to the Kings, and certainly hasn't had the success, I liked Mike's thread and will take up his encouragement to post my own. FORWARDS Ryan Getzlaf - Acquired in trade for Ville Pokka, a 1st (Rasmus Asplund), and a 2nd in 2015 Artem Anisimov - Drafted 41st Overall in 2006 Michael Backlund - Drafted 10th Overall in 2007, traded for Dion Phaneuf in 2013, acquired in trade for Adam Clendening in 2014 Jeff Skinner - Drafted 11th Overall in 2010 Alex Steen - Acquired in trade for Berglund/Colborne in 2017 Alex Killorn - Drafted 79th Overall in 2007 Anders Lee - Drafted 199th Overall in 2008 Dylan Larkin - Drafted 18th Overall in 2014 Radek Faksa - Acquired in trade with Calvin deHaan for Troy Brouwer & RJ Umberger in 2013 Jimmy Vesey - Drafted 194th Overall in 2011 Austin Watson - Drafted 12 Overall in 2010 Nic Dowd - UDFA signing in 2015 DEFENSEMAN Andrej Sekera - Drafted 63rd Overall in 2004 John Klingberg - Acquired in trade for Zybanek Michalek in 2013 David Savard - Acquired in trade for Ryan Murphy, 1st (Charlie McAvoy) in 2015 Mattias Ekholm - Acquired in trade for Dan Hamhuis in 2012 Calvin deHaan - Acquired in trade with Faksa for Brouwer and Umberger in 2013 Markus Nutivaara - Drafted 131st Overall in 2016 GOALIES Ben Bishop -Acquired in trade for Roberto Luongo, 2nd in 2017 James Reimer - Drafted 192nd overall in 2006 There have been three basic periods of Flames building. The first is through the draft, an ever ongoing project, and the one the Flames love the most - 11 of the 20 players listed here were drafted by the Flames. The second is players from the great 'GREAT TANK' of 2012 to 2013. 4 players were just prospects when the Flames moved expensive vets for them, in order to get to the floor to rebuild their bank balance. This period was difficult, but has proven to be successful, especially on the back end with the additions of Klingberg and Ekholm at this time, and the acquisition of the assets used to reacquire Backlund. Some of those trades haven't worked out (see Dansk Dansk Part and the lack of any direct asset from the Datsyuk trade) but overall - pretty happy. The third is players from the present era, which is trying to upgrade with significant players to return to being a competitor (in reality, the Flames have only been a true competitor for two seasons, in 09/10 (when they made it to the Western Conference Final) and 10/11) before financial pressures forced the dismantling of key roster depth. Those additions, Getzlaf, Luongo (turned into Bishop), Steen and Savard are key players that got the Flames back into playoff contention. But as quickly as the Flames were a floor team, they've became a cap team, and like the Kings, players have already fallen victim (see Phaneuf).
