Last time out, I looked at some sober-eyed objective goals for the Flames defense and goaltending using a number of statistical categories.
The conclusions I drew from the previous article were that we can expect approximately 45 goals from the defense provided the estimated number of games played is fulfilled and that Hiller and Ramo together should be able to post close to a 91.1 SV% allowing around 2.6 goals against per game.
You can review my methodology by scanning the previous article.

Some of you may be keeping up with the ongoing diatribes occurring in Edmonton following the news of the Oilers' hiring of Tyler Dellow as an analytics advisor to coach Dallas Eakins.

By now you have all read some of the Reasonable Expectation series that my fellow writers here at Flames Nation have been posting. My contribution is going to be somewhat different.
I’m going to examine the entire Flames roster and use a
number of advanced stats categories alongside past performances and possible
deployments by the coaching staff to try and draw a line in the sand of what
the coming season most likely holds in store for the Flames.
