We are (unfortunately) moving towards the end of our draft coverage. We've focused extensively on the first three rounds, now it's time for the rest.
Instead of throwing darts at a list, we're going to look for the steals of this draft. The Johnny Gaudreaus and the T.J. Brodies of this draft who have slipped for whatever reason. Players who have faced crappy circumstances (bad teams, limited ice time etc.) or scouting biases (too small for the most part) but have good enough production to warrant their names being written down on a Flames draft card.
Instead of a whole profile, we're just going to give you little tidbits on guys the Flames should be focused on during the final rounds of the draft.

What ended up happening was a lot less scary, and much more befitting the poker player that is Flames General Manager Brad Treliving: they used their first round pick to grab Matthew Tkachuk and traded their best second round pick to St. Louis to land themselves goalie Brian Elliott.
They needed a starting goaltender and some additional high-end forwards. They got a starting goaltender and a high-end forward. Now they turn the page towards the second day of the NHL Draft (which begins at 8 a.m. MT).

Round one of the the 2016 NHL Draft is signed, sealed, and delivered and the Calgary Flames did not disappoint. Not only did the Flames enjoy the good fortune of having Matthew Tkachuk fall to them at six overall, they were also able to acquire goaltender Brian Elliott from the St. Louis Blues for a reasonable price. With round two just around the corner, here are the biggest questions after round one.
