Relocating from Atlanta to Calgary in 1980, the Calgary Flames have found moderate success over their tenure in their new city. The Flames of the 1980s were one of the best franchises in the NHL (although facing the Edmonton Oilers of the 1980s was certainly a disservice). Since the 1980s, the Flames have fielded some competitive teams with some Hall-of-Fame players, but have yet to win another Stanley Cup. Now, the Flames have some good young talent but remain one of the most unpredictable franchises in the NHL.

Calgary Flames Overview
Although the Flames have only one Stanley Cup Championship, the Flames are one of the more successful Canadian franchises. From their excellent teams in the 1980s to the Jarome Iginla days in the mid-2000s, the Flames have been one of Canada’s more reliable hopes of winning a Stanley Cup.
Their prospects going into 2018 and beyond are tough to predict completely, but with a new head coach (Bill Peters) and some great young players (Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan), they have a chance.
Although they are not the oldest or most successful franchise in Canada, the Flames Stanley Cup win in 1989 helped solidify Alberta having two NHL franchises and the continuing to expand in Canadian markets (the Ottawa Senators would join the NHL a few seasons after the Flames won the Cup).
From 1989, the Flames come close to capturing another Cup, specifically in 2004 when they lost the Stanley Cup Finals to Tampa Bay in seven games. Since 2004, the Flames have only won a single playoff series and once topped the 100-point plateau in the regular season.
However, the future for Calgary is bright. With their young players developing, they should provide fans with plenty of entertainment, especially when they matchup against their biggest rivalries, the Edmonton Oilers.
Calgary Flames Game Betting Lines
With their popularity extending outside of Calgary, Flames game draw plenty of action. That means excellent lines, odds and props on every Flames game from the start of October until their last regular season game. The action ramps up when the playoff starts, with more lines and odds available to bet.
While diehard Flames fans are sure to watch and wager on the majority of the games in the season, those outside the circle mostly look forward to matchups against the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks. While the three Pacific Division rivals have not been great at the same time for a while now, these teams hate each other no matter the quality of their roster.
Calgary Flames Futures Betting
The Flames have offered some great value on NHL futures over the last ten years, and they should continue to offer value as a Stanley Cup contender for the foreseeable future. The Flames do not get the same love as the Edmonton Oilers, but they have been the most well-rounded Canadian team in the Pacific Division for the last few seasons. While some may not want to throw money on the Flames at the start of the season, the farm system is deep, opening up the potential for a mid-season trade that could help them climb up the Stanley Cup odds.
