If Pacific Division Teams Were... NFL Teams (And Which One Would the Vegas Golden Knights Be?)

Do you ever just look at a team and wonder how they're still even there? Like, how does this team still exist despite being irrelevant? Think of the Tennessee Titans and how they're anonymous in the NFL landscape.

Well, that's the Calgary Flames. Nobody cares about the Flames since everyone's focused on Connor McDavid and the Oilers. Do you know how much it sucks to be the forgotten little brother of Alberta? It's not fun.

Even in the thick of a playoff chase, they're boring. They don't have any exciting goal scorers (3.16 goals per game), their power play stinks (14.1%), and ownership has taken it upon themselves to make the Flames anonymous, even if they screw themselves. Talk about being the little brother in the Battle of Alberta, especially if nobody's paying attention to you.
