New Jets Third Jersey Review

New Jets Third Jersey Review

Welcome to a new segment on FlamesForum: NHL sweater reviews. Our friend Adam at @adams_sweater_reviews delivers his review of NHL sweaters for your reading pleasure. Firstly, we should reserve judgment until we see how they look with the rest of the uniform. Simple designs often look underwhelming on their own, but great when combined with the rest of the gear. This is quite common with soccer and football uniforms. My initial impression of these was that they are underwhelming. I…

Flames Post Solid Win in Nashville: 3-0

Flames Post Solid Win in Nashville: 3-0

It’s only three games in and it feels as if fans have seen the entire spectrum of possible Flames play. The season started with the worst, and now we’ve swung all the way to the other end of the spectrum with tonight’s game. In an 82 Game season what ultimately separates average teams from those that will sit at the top of the Conference is simply consistency. Consistency throughout the entire lineup and across even strength to special teams play….

Welcome to a new segment on FlamesForum: NHL sweater reviews. Our friend Adam at @adams_sweater_reviews will now deliver his review of NHL sweaters for your reading pleasure. Let’s begin with the 2003 Calgary Flames classic jersey. In 2003, Calgary introduced black as a primary colour, changing the Flaming ā€œCā€ to black on the home sweaters. That season Calgary went to the Stanley Cup, revitalizing interest in the team. The jerseys became an instant classic. The basic design has since remained…

Game 2 – Reversal of Fortunes – Calgary 7 : Vancouver 4

Game 2 – Reversal of Fortunes – Calgary 7 : Vancouver 4

The Calgary Flames launched their 2018 season opener in grand fashion. After getting their faces beaten in, literally, in Game 1 versus the Vancouver Canucks, they sought revenge at home. In a rare home at home series to start the season, the Flames had a chance to redeem themselves after the embarrassing opener. The talk leading up to the game centered around two things. The Calgary Flames looking like the old Calgary Flames with an inept power play, and the…

Worse Off. Flames Open the Season With Another Spectacular 5-2 Loss

Worse Off. Flames Open the Season With Another Spectacular 5-2 Loss

If there was one game Flames fans didn’t want to see it was this one. Brand new squad, too many new players, same old problems. Where to begin? Ah forget it, no post-game, not worth the time. Just some highlights. In goal, couldn’t really blame Smith, but he let in 4. The defence looked lost at times. The odd man rushes given up approached double digits. Toughness is completely missing. can’t expect much for a team that got smaller. Also…

Calgary Flames 2018-2019 Opening Roster Set – Let the Games Begin

Puck drop on Wednesday to open the new season of hockey. Calgary has the dubious distinction of the longest active losing streak on opening night at 8. They have a chance to turn their fate with back-to-back games vs the lowly Vancouver Canucks. Despite an underwhelming pre-season, the new look Calgary Flames will excite, if for no other reason that fans will finally get a look at the new roster. Speaking of opening night rosters, here’s what the Flames look…

HOCKEY! Flames Open Pre-Season With Loss

HOCKEY! Flames Open Pre-Season With Loss

Calgary 3 – Boston 4 (SO) The Calgary Flames opened the 2018 pre-season in China facing the Boston Bruins. The Flames have brought their starting lineup, whereas the Bruins left half at home. Although Calgary outshot the Bruins throwing 40 pucks at Halak, they couldn’t pull out a late win. In fact, they looked like the FLames of old, including going 2 for 8 on the PP (including a late PP to tie). The defence looked at time in shambles,…

Jarome Iginla Retires as a Flame – Links From Around the Rink

Jarome Iginla Retires as a Flame – Links From Around the Rink

A post shared by Calgary Flames (@nhlflames) on Jul 30, 2018 at 7:40pm PDT If you’re anything like me, growing up in the “Young Guns” era when the Flames were hot trash, Jarome Iginla emerged as the saviour, and nearly capped off a storybook 2004 season with a Stanley Cup (we won). He was the hero the team needed to essentially save NHL hockey in the city. He was also the type of human, humble and excellent, that endeared him…

WHAT?! Flames Unload Dougie Hamilton and Ferland to Caroline for Hanfin and Lindholm

WHAT?! Flames Unload Dougie Hamilton and Ferland to Caroline for Hanfin and Lindholm

.@CortexBusiness Transaction Alert: The #Flames have acquired forward Elias Lindholm and defenceman Noah Hanifin from the Hurricanes! https://t.co/bOUPfPI3eO ā€” Calgary Flames (@NHLFlames) June 23, 2018 I can’t believe it. Can you? All of the rumors that Dougie was going to be traded, and the BS that Brad Treliving said that Dougie wasn’t going to be traded, amounted to Dougie Hamilton being traded. Why? A stud RH defencemen just entering his prime. For who? Downgrades. If we want to look at…
