If you grew up watching hockey during the 90s then you know the story. You also have been shaped by Iginla and…

Flames New Arena Talks Shrouded in Secrecy

Flames New Arena Talks Shrouded in Secrecy

Some interesting tidbits emerging as the talks for a new Flames arena continues behind closed doors led by new Councillors. The curious part, FOIP requests for details on the “deals” being made behind closed doors are being rejected. Anyways, have a read, and remember that billionaires getting tax dollars to fund more billions isn’t in public interest. Even though we all love the Flames. https://www.reddit.com/r/Calgary/comments/assc3i/so_i_submitted_an_foi_request_to_the_city/ http://www.fieldofschemes.com/2019/02/21/14654/calgary-has-a-flames-arena-plan-but-it-cant-tell-you-what-it-is-or-itll-have-to-kill-you/

Still Surprised – Flames 2nd in League at All-Star Break

Still Surprised – Flames 2nd in League at All-Star Break

I’m surprised. I shouldn’t be, but I am. I’m used to decades of inconsistent Flames. And suddenly this team is good. I can’t even recall a time they were this good. I was too young. That shows you how long ago it was since the Calgary Flames were a legitimate threat to do some damage in the playoffs. So is it time to relax and enjoy the ride? Enjoy, sure, but something in the back of my head doesn’t want…

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…

Summer Moves – Flames Add Firepower

Summer Moves – Flames Add Firepower

Well free agency has come and gone (well technically it’s still here), and the Calgary Flames made their splash getting arguably all of “their guys”. Let’s start off the list from top to bottom.

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 — 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…

That Was Quick: Flames Hire new Head Coach Bill Peters to Three-Year Deal

That Was Quick: Flames Hire new Head Coach Bill Peters to Three-Year Deal

Bill who? Two weeks ago few even knew the name. Now in a whirlwind of activity, he’s the new head coach. For those of you who don’t know, Bill Peters was behind the bench in Carolina for 4 years. Before that, an assistant in Detroit behind Mike Babcock. Oh ya, in true Calgary Flames fashion, a good ol Albertan boy too (grew up in Three Hills). OK, so why did things move so fast to get a coach on a…

RIP – Calgary Flames 2017-2018 Year in Review

RIP – Calgary Flames 2017-2018 Year in Review

It was bad. Real bad. There was hardly anything good about it, in fact. Right out of the gate they stumbled, then they fumbled, then they kind of had life, and then they face planted….hard. Welcome to the year in review of the Calgary Flames 2017-2018. Now that the dust has settled, there’s a chance to revisit the season and discuss what went wrong. Let’s start at the bottom and work our way to the top. Before I begin, let…

Mikael Backlund Signed for 6 years 5.35 AAV

Mikael Backlund Signed for 6 years 5.35 AAV

If there’s one thing Brad Treviling has done is put a solid lineup on paper. He also negotiates very well. The likes of Monahan, Gaudreau, and now Backlund, all would command top dollar on an open market, but play in Calgary for less. Backlund for one, he’s taking a pay cut, but he receives term in exchange. For the Flames, they hang on to one of the best two way centreman in the game, and even though he’ll be Troy…
