Since 1995 only eight teams have had three or more 1st round picks in single year. I decided to take a look at those teams, the players chosen, the draft year in question, and then find the most appropriate historical fit for the Flames current situation.

The Flames loss and Avs win last night means Calgary is still very much in the race for a top-3 pick come June despite some pretty good hockey from the Flames in the last few games. Their goaltending/luck is still mostly rotten, but that's good news in the current environment. I know there is something undignified about celebrating failure, but with the team actually playing pretty well it's hard to get upset since the ultimate goal is drafting an elite talent and changing the club's fortunes in the long-run.

As we all know, the Flames have nothing to play for right now but pride. The kids are getting their chance to prove themselves and give 110% on every shift, so there's effort there. On the other hand, the Canucks no doubt entered the evening assuming they were going to win.
