The Calgary Flames announced their final 23 man roster Monday, sending four more to the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League.

We'll also look at the Flames starting roster and discuss the potential line combos to open the season.

I have been thrust in charge of most things Streakcred because I’m the person around here that likes to win every useless thing in the world and I’m quite proud of it.

The season is just about upon us. Stock up the beer, fire up the DVR, prep your TV remote for a few angry tosses across the room. It was long summer and in some ways it's likely to be a long season as well. But we're glad it's here anyways.
As is our custom, FN writers got together and discussed a few of the team's key issues heading into action. Christian, Ryan (Pike), Ryan (Lambert), Book of Loob and Justin Azevedo shared their thoughts on where the Flames will place in the standings, who the club's goat will be and what the future holds as Calgary embarks on the rebuild.
