Well, hockey's officially back. Someone obviously forgot to tell the Flames because they were clearly the second-best team in a game that might've been close, but never really was, I guess. At least it was entertaining.

Via the NHL - let's hope we see this about, oh, 750 more times?

I’m not sure how much to write about Sean Monahan because we all watched him the same amount last year. I, along with a couple of other mysterious figures at FlamesNation, have had the same sort of idea about Monahan since day one: it was a mistake to keep him at the NHL level this year but holy crap this kid is real good at hockey!

Last year’s sixth overall pick is our number one prospect on this year’s edition of the Flames Fifteen.

Did something happen to Sven Baertschi?

The 21-year-old prospect - once the crown jewel of Calgary’s stable - has seen his stock drop considerably in the eyes of many since he was drafted 13th overall less than three full years ago. On the surface, it looks pretty cut and dry. Is there more underneath?

SVEN comes in at #3 on our 2014 Flames Fifteen.

Like a couple of other prospects in the Flames' stable, QMJHL dynamo Émile Poirier's biggest asset is his speed - and holy cow can this kid burn. Like Kenny Agostino, Poirier's main draw is those fast feet. Unlike Kenny Agostino, though, Poirier's offensive ceiling seems to be pretty freaking high.

2013's second first rounder (22nd overall) comes in at 5th in his first appearance on the Flames Fifteen.
