In case you missed it during the whirlwind of excitement that is the National Hockey League’s pre-season, the fine folks at Yahoo’s Puck Daddy blog have (finally) released their preview for the 2015-16 Calgary Flames.
What’s the gist of it, you may ask? The Flames are headed to the post-season once again, albeit in a wild-card spot.
The thrust of the whole Puck Daddy preview series as it relates to the Calgary Flames is this: Los Angeles and San Jose had bad years last season at the right time for the Flames, who made good moves in the off-season to compensate.
In other words: they saw the same season we did.
The Puck Daddy preview is pretty in-depth and on the mark (Greg Wyshinski wrote it), so check it out. It’s worth a read.
For the curious, Puck Daddy joins a chorus of prognosticators that include The Sports Forecaster and The Hockey News in predicting the Flames will return to the playoffs in 2015-16 (though the other two publications predict Calgary gets a divisional playoff spot).
