They have a couple veterans who can be shuffled around the top-9, the versatile bargain Kris Versteeg and Troy “full of leadership but not that great at other things” Brouwer. Then there is a...

Up 1-0 in their game against the Penguins, the Calgary Flames’ 3M Line just scored a pretty, pretty goal.
