Last season was an offensive nightmare for the Calgary Flames, we all know that.  Now that we look back on the season that was and get set for the upcoming campaign, we can delve a little further into who made eachother tick (and who didn't).  When doing some number crunching, two specific forward duo's ended up doing some pretty good work.

Summer is nearly done, and the doldrums around the NHL that come with August are almost at an end. Almost, of course, being the operative phrase, so the round-up is mostly bereft of serious news, but we can muddle on anyway. This week, a Flame prospect opens up regarding his season of uncertainty, a few vets sign for peanuts, and the league looks at potential rule adjustments.
