Flames Boot Canucks 3-1 to Remain Undefeated

Flames Boot Canucks 3-1 to Remain Undefeated

Who woulda thunk it? Jeff Friesen is a fighter, Daymond Langkow likes to drop the gloves with dudes twice his height, and Tony Amonte and score? Ok I’m kidding, kind of, but Friesen had two fights, Langkow held his own, and Amonte had the tying goal in a Flames victory at the ‘Dome. Many PP goals quaterbacked by Phaneuf and Regher helped the Flames cause that saw Curtis M. pick up the win (he played half the game coming in…

Kobby Wears ‘A’, Hussy Back to Old Games

Kobby Wears ‘A’, Hussy Back to Old Games

Chuck Kobasew wore the C during the lock out for the Lowell Monsters, tonight, he wore the ‘A’ for the big club. Perhaps a mini motivator from the Flames brass silently suggesting, “how about another 20+ goal season?” Kobasew didn’t dissapoint. The line of Kobasew, Huselius, and Boyd, turned in a spirited performance, dominating the ice all night when together. As much as Florida tried, they couldn’t beat the wall–no, that’s not a good name–the Krahn…..that’s even worse. Brent Krahn…

Iginla Enters 2006-07 Season Skinnier Than Ever

Iginla Enters 2006-07 Season Skinnier Than Ever

This sounds like a tabloid piece but it isn’t. Fans should prepare to see a smaller Iginla take to the ice come opening day. Rumours have it Iginla has streamlined his body by eating nothing but power bars stuffed with prime rib…. [That doesn’t make any sense.] Nonetheless, Iggy is entering this campaign slim like the first days he came into the NHL. Now this I have a tough time believing, they say he only lost ten pounds and early…

High Hopes for Tanguay In Calgary

Training camp opens tomorrow, officially, but Alex Tanguay has been hanging out in Calgary for quite some time.

We’re going to be looking for each other that’s for sure.” Rumour has Tanguay was asking…

Taratukhin Rumours Confirmed

Taratukhin Rumours Confirmed

The Flames have confirmed rumours by signing forward Andrei Taratukhin to a two-year entry level contract. Taratukhin recorded 24 points during the 2005-06 season with Yaroslavl Lokomotiv on nine goals and 15 assists while also accumulating 85 penalty minutes. No real word on his abilities in the real game, probably a year in Omaha will give him much needed exposure. 3rd Line Center we envision. The 23 year-old native of Omsk, Russia was originally drafted by the Flames in the…

Keenan Resigns – Martin New GM

Keenan Resigns – Martin New GM

Was it Luongo for Bertuzzi or the signing of Belfour? Either or, bad moves on the whole, but why now? Florida announced in a statement Sunday that Mike Keenan has resigned from his front office post and has been replaced by head coach Jacques Martin. It is not clear what led to the move – made just days before the start of training camp. It may have been a case that it took this long to force Keenan out. Martin…
