The Calgary Flames were the sweethearts of the NHL last season. With countless third period comebacks and exciting players like Johnny Gaudreau, Sam Bennett and Sean Monahan, everyone thought the Flames were set to rise into a top team in the Western Conference for years. Unfortunately, that just hasn’t been the case.
Calgary has gotten off to a poor start even with players like Gaudreau and Monahan playing well. No matter what, they just can’t seem to string together multiple wins at a time.
In the latest episode of THW Live!, we talk about the problems plaguing the Flames with reporter Ryan Pike. What has been the biggest issue for the team’s lack of success this season, what needs to happen to fix the ship and how long until a major change happens in the organization?
