By Josh Gagnon, ESPN.com The summer of 2016 brought a few big changes to Calgary.
The city saw its first major fire of the year.
A few months later, the team relocated to Arizona.
The season began in earnest in April with the Flames playing host to the Arizona Coyotes in a game that was billed as a preview of their upcoming season.
The team was just one game away from tying the franchise record for most consecutive playoff appearances and it looked like the start of a good run.
That’s when things started to fall apart.
In five games, the Flames went 6-10-2.
The first two were ugly, the third a bit disappointing and the Flames ended up in the eighth spot in a wild-card spot.
The Flames were 0-7-1 with three straight losses in the final five games of the season.
It was the worst start in franchise history and the team was on the brink of elimination.
A playoff spot would’ve been just a step closer to the playoffs.
But a lot could’ve been done to get back on track.
A lot of things could’ve changed.
That was the premise of a feature film called Hot Spot.
Watch Hot Spot’s first trailer.
In the film, we meet three characters who were born and raised in Calgary.
All three have their own stories to tell, their own experiences that have shaped them.
These are people who want to get out there and play, and it’s all part of a journey for these three.
It’s not just a story about the Flames.
It’s also a story of how the franchise’s journey could have ended up different.
The film’s title is a reference to a famous line from the movie Fargo: “You know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.”
It’s a sentiment that plays out in Hot Spot, a film that is essentially a series of short videos that chronicles the journey of the Flames, their rise to prominence and how they have changed the city and the sport.
It is the story of a group of young players who have all come together to try and make a difference in their city, and one by one, they become a part of the team and a part in Calgary’s success.
They also become the subject of a major documentary.
The film has been called a film of the summer.
“It’s kind of a bittersweet kind of thing,” said Flames general manager Brad Treliving.
Treliving said the team has talked to a few of the players and he hopes they can be part of their team in Arizona. “
We’re getting ready to get a win and we have a couple of guys who have really stepped up and been good.”
Treliving said the team has talked to a few of the players and he hopes they can be part of their team in Arizona.
“When you have a player like that that’s a great story, they’re going to do whatever it takes to be a part and make the team better,” Trelving said.
“It’s a story that we’ve been able to make and it just makes you appreciate what it’s like to play in a playoff environment and it makes you want to do it again.”
The Flames were one of the NHL’s best teams in the 2015-16 season.
They finished with a record of 59-15-5 and had a .922 winning percentage, good for sixth in the league.
They were among the NHL leaders in goals scored, goals against average and goals against percentage.
The biggest question was whether the team would be able to keep pace with the elite.
The answer is a resounding yes.
In just their first two games, Calgary was 0-5-0, allowing two goals to the New York Islanders and three to the Washington Capitals.
They went 0-3-0 in their final two games.
The only team in the NHL to win more games than Calgary was the Los Angeles Kings who won the Stanley Cup in 2016.
While the Flames were winning, there was a lot of speculation about the team’s long-term health.
Trelive said that was an unfortunate reality, especially after the team lost goalie Devan Dubnyk to a broken leg in the preseason.
The injuries had a huge impact on the Flames’ performance and it took a massive leap to get to where they are now.
Travis Hamonic, a forward and one of Calgary’s young prospects, was the Flames third-leading scorer at the end of the 2016-17 season with 35 goals.
The next year, the organization traded Hamonic to the Dallas Stars for defenseman Adam Larsson and a fifth-round pick in 2019.
The Stars traded Hamony to the Winnipeg Jets in return for a third-round draft pick in 2021.
Hamonic’s career was not only derailed, it took an
