Building a Flames playoff line-up

Friends, barring the maelstrom of unpleasantness that is 2020 somehow getting worse – leave us alone, murder hornets – the Stanley Cup playoffs will begin sometime this summer. In the interest of sheer curiosity, we decided to dig into what the Calgary Flames’ lineup could look like when hockey returns in July or August.


The de facto top line for the Flames at the stoppage was Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan and Elias Lindholm. With Monahan’s boosted physicality this season, the line seems ideally suited for some heavy lifting in the playoffs.
