Due to popular demand Draft Street is back on the Nations. We ran some Free Rolls for DS last year and got some really good feedback, so we approached them about getting this going again for us again this year. They finally acquiesced when I threatened to send Wanye to their house with a bullhorn and a clown costume.

The new season is freshly born, and with it new sights and wonders. The Flames have burst out of the gate with a 1-0-2 start, which would be wholly disappointing if Calgary had not been roundly pick by pundits to finish last in the league with a bullet. Each game was a one goal affair and the Flames have led for long stretches of all of them. With a bit more luck, a few less errors or a bit more NHL-level goaltending, the club could easily be 3-0-0.
Here's some thoughts and observations after the first week...

There's at least one thing you can say about this iteration of the Calgary Flames so far - they keep things entertaining. For the third time in three games, the contest was decided by one goal and for the second time in the last two the contest needed OT to settle things.
The bad news is, the Flames were on the wrong side of the box score. The good news is, they probably deserved better.

It looks like EA's NHL14 has the Flames third jerseys. And it looks like they kid of suck.

Another week, another round of fan questions. If you want to submit a question that will appear in this weekly feature, submit something here.

We'll start with the longest question/answer...
