Calgary Flames Approval Polls: End of October

A chance to have your say on all facets of the team

NHL: Preseason-San Jose Sharks at Calgary Flames Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

I’ve seen other sites at SBNation take a stab at these, so for the first time I present, the Calgary Flames approval polls. These polls will gauge how you feel the team, the coaches, management, and ownership at the current time. This will be a monthly article at the end of each month, so we’ll be able to see how everyone’s views change over the course of the season.

Our format is simply for players, we will be asking if they’ve either exceeded, met, or fallen beneath your expectations. They will be asked on a grouped basis such as top six, bottom six, defense. It is worth noting that you’re evaluating the lines/pairings as a whole, so you have to take into account players that are playing well and players that are struggling.

For coaches, management, and owners, it’ll be a simple “Do you approve of the job X is doing?” with a Yes, No, or Unsure response. Vote away!
