The Calgary Flames suffered a disappointing fate last year thanks to a late-season collapse. After sitting solidly in a playoff position for most of the season, the Flames would go on a seven-game losing streak in the middle of March that effectively ended their playoff aspirations.

In the past, the Flames’ biggest issue was goaltending. Since the retirement of Miikka Kiprusoff in 2013, the Flames have worked through a revolving door of different goalies, like Karri Ramo, Reto Berra, Jonas Hiller, and Niklas Backstrom, none of whom have been able to perform at a high level. Last season, though, newly-acquired veteran Mike Smith had an excellent season, posting a .916 save percentage over 55 games.

Oddly enough, Calgary’s big issue in 2017-18 that plagued them, especially down the stretch, was an inability to score goals. Beyond their top producers of Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, and Matthew Tkachuk, the Flames were devoid of offensive depth. Bottom-six veterans like Kris Versteeg, Troy Brouwer, and Michael Frolik combined to score only 20 goals, which is incredibly low given how much they combined to cost the team against the salary cap.

In the off-season, the Flames made a handful of big moves to shake up their roster.

First, at the draft, they made a blockbuster deal with the Carolina Hurricanes, sending Dougie Hamilton, Michael Ferland, and prospect Dane Fox to Carolina in exchange for former fifth-overall picks Noah Hanifin and Elias Lindholm. While Hamilton is one of the better defenders in the game and Ferland was a fan favourite who could chip in offensively, Hanifin and Lindholm gave the Flames younger, controllable players who could grow with the team.

In free agency, the Flames continued to be aggressive in building depth on their roster. They signed James Neal, a consistent 20-goal scorer, to multi-year deal. Neal had an excellent season with the Vegas Golden Knights after being left open by the Nashville Predators in the expansion draft. They also added two-way centre Derek Ryan and winger Austin Czarnik, giving them more offensive depth for the bottom-six.

With their off-season additions, the Flames now boast one of the deeper offensive lineups in the league. In the past, they had relied on Gaudreau and Monahan to drive the majority of their offence, but adding Lindholm, Neal, Czarnik, and Ryan to the mix gives Calgary many more options to work with elsewhere on the roster.

The Flames have the majority of their roster locked up for the foreseeable future. After this season, the only key player hitting free agency will be Smith, so Calgary will have to figure something out when it comes to goaltending yet again. The biggest free agent they’ll have to deal with is Matthew Tkachuk, who will see his entry-level deal expire on July 1. Tkachuk has been one of the Flames’ best producers over his young career and will be able to command a pretty big long-term contract this summer.
