Flames Slump Continues – Loose Season Opener 3-1

Flames Slump Continues – Loose Season Opener 3-1

The Flames picked up their play from game seven of last season, which isn’t a good thing. A lacklustre effort turned into a 3-1 opening loss again the Oilers. The Fan 960 post game talked about how the Flames ran into the ‘hot goalie’ and played ‘pretty well’, I couldn’t disagree more. I’ve maintained for some time Roloson is not a marquee goalie, but he does make stops. (He made one maybe two great stops in this game, that doesn’t…

The Puck Drops Tonight! 2006-07 Season Begins!

The 2006-2007 season is here, finally! Now I can’t say there’s that much excitment as a year ago when the lock out happened, but Flames fans are definately pleased that we get another kick at the can this year with what many believe is the best team we’ve had in years. The Flames won’t play tonight, they do a home-at-home vs. the Oilers, but you can watch Colorado or Toronto tonight….I’ll watch Colorado I’m sure. Be sure to stay tuned…

Ference and Godard Placed on Waivers

Ference and Godard Placed on Waivers

Both Brad Ference (D) and Eric Godard (LW) have been placed on waivers. This means neither made the team, and in order to play in the minors, they need to be waived. This is due to their NHL experience since under the new CBA if you have X amount of games you need to clear waivers everytime you go down (I think that’s the rule….) Playfair is quoted as saying, “it’s a situation where one will make the team and…

Andrew Ference Signs Extension

Andrew Ference Signs Extension

The Calgary Flames signed defenseman Andrew Ference to a three-year contract extension. He’ll be a Flames, baring trade, until 2010. Ference had career highs in assists (27), points (31) and games (82) last season and added four assists in seven postseason games. He was a bargain last season (making about 750K) and is probably worth more than he signed for (just over 1 million Im’ guessing.) The Flames acquired the 5-foot-10, 189-pound defenseman from the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2003 in…

First CFL Replay Error – Stamps Loose Against Argos

First CFL Replay Error – Stamps Loose Against Argos

Flamesforum is here for all Calgary sports and I thought we’d post some Stampeders info. The Stamps lost a boring game against Toronto that saw Grandpa Simpson–I mean Allen–make smart decisions to burn up the clock. I would like to make a few comments about the game as a whole from a Stamps point of view. 1. This is the first time we’ve seen the instant replay fail. On a 2nd down with 29 seconds left to play the Stamps…

‘Nucks Beat Flames 3-2 in GM Place

‘Nucks Beat Flames 3-2 in GM Place

I admit, I missed this game, but from what I hear and see on the official scoresheet is more vets playing and another lose. Kiprusoff is still refining his game, as are many of the vets. The defence is looking for continuity as they let 39 shots on Miikka. Hope for a better effort against San Jose in SJ before the regular season kick starts the 5th…. (Big party my place.)

Flames Dumped – 6-3 Loss to Sharks

Flames Dumped – 6-3 Loss to Sharks

The Sharks came into town and helped produce a largely entertaining game, that is until the third. The veterans of the Flames are really stepping up, skilles players are scoring, Amonte is still impressing, Iggy scored on a breakaway, Phanuef (not a vet) is quaterbacking the powerplay. Really, when you look at the team, the pieces are coming together…. But wait, problems, the most unlikely places, goal. Miikka surrendered 6 goals (not including the empty netter), to put in an…
