2016-17 Season Preview: Calgary Flames

After a surprising run to the playoffs in 2014-15 that included a playoff series win (thanks to the horrible playoff system the NHL has), the Calgary Flames quickly regressed last season finishing completely out of the playoff picture.

After sniping 30-plus goals in each of his final three seasons of junior including a career-high of 37 in 2014-15, the Flames prospect saw that total plummet to just three in his first pro season.
