The last time SB Nation reached out to you to talk about hockey you were asked two separate questions:
- Which NON playoff NHL teams from last season will make the playoffs this season?
- Which of last season’s NHL playoff teams won’t make it back?
Not surprisingly the Flames made it into the “won’t make it back” portion of the questionnaire, but the percentage wasn’t as high as you would imagine. Accounting for all SNB Hockey sites answers to the questions, only 5% of the people surveyed think the Flames won’t be back in the playoffs. Multiple factors could figure into that, like the fact that when people were asked the Flames were playing well, the Pacific is so bad anyone can win it or the fact the Flames are still in playoff position. Either way not that many people think the NHL Playoffs will bypass the Flames. Here are the results to both questions below.
