I think we can sum up Brett Kulak with two words: "pleasant surprise". One of the largest risers in this year's countdown, Kulak moved up five spots from 17th last year to 12th this year and is one of about three defenceman that are expected to challenge for a bottom pair role with the Flames this season. 

Well, that is, if there is even a spot for Kulak to challenge for, but that's another matter.

FlamesNation Prospect Profile: #13 Emile Poirier

FN13

In our 2015 prospect profiles, Emile Poirier came third in our voting. A lot has changed over the past year, though: from another good draft, to some solid trades, to, quite frankly, a poor season by him. It's all come together to see him come in a lot lower.

Perhaps gone are the raised expectations. That's no cause for concern just yet, though: Poirier is only 21 years old, and still has two more years on his entry level deal. While it may seem as though time is running out - and the clock is definitely ticking, as it is on pretty much everyone - there's no cause for panic.

Poirier comes in at #13 in this year's FlamesNation Prospect Profile.
