The 2014-15 Calgary Flames season ended last night.

They lost in the second round of the playoffs. In the second year of their rebuild. In a season where many, including the majority of the voices on this website, felt they'd be toying with the draft lottery.

Everyone thought they'd be Edmonton Oilers Bad, but they...weren't.

Calgary is on the brink, so this might be the final mailbag article of the 2014-15 season. Even if the Flames ultimately fall to the Ducks in the second round, it's been one hell of a ride. 

Where does the org go from here though? Most of this week's questions are concerned with this topic. After the jump, we get into Bouma's contract extension, what the Flames should prioritize this summer and whether they can use picks to plug some holes at the draft.

FGD Round 2, Game 5: The Last Stand? (8pm MT, SN West)

Well, it's come down to this. Tonight is the first time this post-season - and the second time overall this season after the Kings game in April - that the Calgary Flames are entering a game with their survival on the line. Tonight, they can be eliminated from the playoffs by the Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks are a good team. We've all seen that over the eight post-season games they've played so far this year. They've only lost once, to a Flames team that played balls to the wall and eked out a thrilling Game 3 victory at the 'Dome. In Anaheim, Calgary's seemed out-matched. Heck, for the majority of the series, the Flames have been out-matched.

The question is thus: how much do the Calgary Flames have left in the tank? Do they have what it takes to steal a game in Anaheim and force Game 6 back in Calgary? Or is tonight the last stand for this year's Flames?

Puck drop is just after 8pm MT on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan!
