17. Calgary Flames

Previous: No. 14

Expectation bar: Below

I figured the Flames had a puncher’s chance at taking the Pacific away from Anaheim this year. That has not come to fruition, even with the Ducks withering away. Mike Smith has been oddly good in net. The odd mix of young and old forwards, along with the previously solid-looking defense, are allowing way too many shots to hit Smith.
