Calgary Flames Stanley Cup Betting

Just when it looked like the Calgary Flames were established as a top-level Stanley Cup contender, that label has been revoked. Calgary lost two of its key weapons from last year’s 111-point season. Johnny Gaudreau was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets because he rejected a massive offer from the Flames. Gaudreau told them he wanted to return to the United States and the Flames sent him packing. Meanwhile, Matthew Tkachuk saw that move and told Calgary he would never sign an extension with them either. Thus, Tkachuk was traded to the Florida Panthers. Calgary did get Jonathan Huberdeau and MacKenzie Weegar for Tkachuk, which might keep them as a playoff time. While the Flames aren’t dead yet, they are no longer in the elite class.

Calgary Flames at a Glance

2022-2023 Stanley Cup Odds: +2600 (Aug, 2022)

Western Conference Odds: +1201 (Aug, 2022)

Last year the Calgary Flames finished with a record of 50-21-11 to finish 1st in the Pacific Division. The Flames ranked 6th for goal scoring, 10th for power play efficiency, 3rd for goals against, and 6th for penalty killing. Calgary lost four games to one in the second round of the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs in their series against the arch rival Edmonton Oilers.

General manager Brad Treliving has been in his current role since April 2014. Treliving got strong reviews for his improvement of the franchise and the quality of its roster. His hiring of head coach Darryl Sutter has proven to be a masterstroke after originally being panned.

Head coach Darryl Sutter led the Los Angeles Kings to their only two Stanley Cup championships in 2012 and 2014. Sutter is a hard-nosed coach that wants his teams to grind opponents. It tends to wear his players down over time, effective as it is. Sutter has a career record of 699-503-101-94.

Jonathan Huberdeau arrives from the Florida Panthers, where he was the third overall pick of the 2011 NHL Draft. Last year Huberdeau scored 30 goals with 85 assists for a career best 115 points. Huberdeau is a 2-time NHL All-Star.

Center Elias Lindholm is coming off a breakout season of 42 goals and 40 assists in 2021-22.

Calgary Flames History

The Calgary Flames were founded in 1972 as the Atlanta Flames. Calgary became home to the Flames in 1980. In 1989 the franchise won its only Stanley Cup.

Upon their arrival in Calgary, the Flames were immediately taken into the hearts of the Calgary fans. The Flames brought legitimacy and pride to this Western Canadian city located in the mountains. Calgary was an immediate contender against their Provincial arch-rival Edmonton Oilers. Edmonton and Calgary forged one of the great NHL rivalries in history, known as the “Battle of Alberta.”

In the early years of the Flames, they struggled to keep pace with the Edmonton Dynasty. Calgary was quite good as a team, but the Oilers were among the greatest teams in NHL history. But in 1986, the Flames upset the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions to earn a spot in the Stanley Cup Final. Unfortunately, they could not overcome goaltender Patrick Roy and the Montreal Canadiens.

In 1989 it all came together for the Flames. Wayne Gretzky was gone to the Los Angeles Kings to weaken the Oilers. And Calgary stepped into the void. The Flames got revenge on the Canadiens with an impressive win in the Stanley Cup Final. Stars such as Doug Gilmour, Lanny McDonald, Al MacInnis, Joe Mullen, and Joe Nieuwendyk became Hall of Famers. Goaltender Mike Vernon was clutch when it mattered most.

Not long after that championship, the Flames entered a long dark period of not being competitive with large market teams. But with the arrival of head coach Darryl Sutter, the Flames have reached elite status again. However, the loss of Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk puts into doubt the Flames ability to compete in the future. Additionally, Calgary is looking for a new building to replace the outdated Scotiabank Saddledome.
