Hockey is back. The Calgary Flames start their season on the road against the Vancouver Canucks in just two days time. This year, join us for the inaugural Are You Smarter Than The Win Column?


We’ve put together a comprehensive list of things we think might happen for the Flames over the course of the 2018-19 season, and marked them up with thresholds we believe will be the targets for this year. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to decide whether the threshold is realistic. Is Sean Monahan destined to hit the 34 goal mark? Does Sam Bennett have more than 55 penalty minutes?

Submit your predictions using the form linked here.

We will post regular updates throughout the season as thresholds are reached (if any) to see how predictions are coming along.

Our thresholds and predictions are below. Who is the most out to lunch?
