We're over 20% of the way through the 2016-17 Calgary Flames schedule and there are quite a few things to talk about. In light of the injury to Johnny Gaudreau and general whispers of an officiating conspiracy in the aftermath of Dennis Wideman's altercation with Don Henderson in January, we felt the need to dig into officiating in Calgary's games so far this season.
We have two broad questions to explore: Is Johnny Gaudreau drawing fewer penalties than he used to? And are the Flames as a team drawing fewer penalties than they used to?

The NHLN Notebook is a semi-regular feature of interesting hockey content from the past few days that doesn't quite deserve its own article.

I don't know why Dougie Hamilton's name has crept up again in trade talks, but if there's anything to be learned from the last time it did, these situations can evolve into something quickly. [See also: P.K. Subban this past June.]
There seems to be plenty of debate among insiders and Flames fans alike about just how much substance there is to Calgary's willingness to ship Hamilton out, but as an outsider looking at things from the perspective of another team, I don't want to get too much into that. The name is out there for a reason. If Brad Treviling is fielding calls on this guy, Lou Lamoriello should be hopping on the phone as soon as possible.
