Assessing the Calgary Flames Last Five Drafts

It’s no secret that this season couldn’t have gone much further south for Calgary. The only upside to missing the playoffs in six of the last seven years though, is that they’ve accumulated some high draft picks by doing so.

Handicapping the Flames 2016 First Round Pick

After enjoying a resurgence in 2014-15, the Calgary Flames backslid a bit in 2015-16. While their on-ice results were no doubt a disappointment, the silver lining is that the club owns the sixth overall selection in the upcoming 2016 NHL Draft. Since moving to Calgary in 1980 the Flames have only selected this high in the first round a handful of times, and tongues league-wide are...

Calgary Flames: Is moving to Seattle possible?

The Calgary Flames have a great support system that has remained patient through some difficult seasons lately, so it seems kind of weird to consider this franchise packing their bags and heading somewhere else.

Calgary Flames: What they could do with the #6 pick

The Calgary Flames made a huge jump toward a successful rebuilding process when they got 97 points and a playoff spot in 2014-2015, but they took a nosedive this season. They finished with the same record as in 2013-2014 (35-40-7, 77 points), and they turned to the lottery once again. They have the sixth pick of the 2016 NHL Draft, and there are plenty of directions that the Flames...

Calgary Flames: Go from Hartley to Boudreau

On May 3, the Calgary Flames decided to fire head coach Bob Hartley after a disappointing 77-point season. It is a decision that has so far not gone well for the fans. One of the cleaner reactions to the firing was: “Bad bad bad decision.” The timing of the firing is kind of curious; as the Flames had just reached the postseason to buck expectations in 2014-2015. They went on...

Calgary Flames on the verge of another standout rookie season

The Calgary Flames’ 2015-16 season has been an abysmal one from the start. Losing eight of their first 10 games did little to inspire the Flames faithful from the get-go, and the club has failed to hit its stride since then, putting together a subpar season that saw them spend far longer than expected as the worst-ranked club in the league. However, amid Calgary’s disappointing...
