Scouting the Playoff Race: Calgary Flames

It's weird that trade deadline sellers like the Calgary Flames have a shot at the playoffs, yet here we are. But are they a threat to the Vegas Golden Knights?

There's too much work for the Calgary Flames to do to catch up to the Vegas Golden Knights. Plus, even if the Golden Knights fall out of favor, the Flames must jump the Wild and Blues.

With the lack of overall depth, Calgary just doesn't have enough to overcome these stacked odds. There's a reason why the Flames were deadline sellers. Next season will offer them an opportunity to regroup and compete in the Pacific Division.
