June 26th and 27th, 2015 were a great few days for the Calgary Flames. The weekend was filled with savvy drafting from the Flames brass that delighted the fan base, especially the analytically-minded folks at FN. But the weekend's finest moment was when 22-year-old stud defenceman Dougie Hamilton was acquired from the Boston Bruins for a 1st round pick and two 2nds. The addition of Hamilton on the Flames blueline took them from a mediocre d-core with two elite pieces in Brodie and Giordano to one of the best d-cores in the league.

After the undersized Gaudreau was drafted he continued to get better and better at Boston College. In his 3rd and last season at Boston College, he put up offensive numbers not seen in over a decade and was universally considered the Flames' best prospect. Finally he joined the Flames in the 2014-15 season as a full-time NHLer and appears to be the superstar everybody hoped he would be.

Hakan Loob, a name synonymous with the Flames of the '80s. He was the ultimate fan favorite, adored by the entire Flames fan base. He was only a member of the Flames for six seasons but left his mark on the organization and is an obvious choice for FN's All-Time Greatest Flames Team.
