Hot and Cold: Flames Lose in Columbus

At this rate my prediction of a slightly better, but not much, season points wise will work out. Calgary is on-again/off-again, winning one, and then losing one. I guess you could say they should've lost in Chicago. They should've lost in Columbus tonight and they...

Four Points in Two Nights for Flames

With next year's entry draft probability effectively a crapshoot, the Flames winning games here and there isn't so bad. It's been a see-saw first few games for the club with their hot and cold play game in and game out. Versus Nashville last night the team pulled...

Flames Rolled in the Lou 4-1

If you want an idea of how far away the Flames are from being a good team then look no further than this game. Every facet of the game was St Louis. There was no single time in this game that Calgary had control. Top to bottom the team was manhandled. Although this is...

Hat-Trick for Raymond: Calgary 5 – Edmonton 2

The longest rebuild in NHL history will continue as the league's hapless Edmonton Oilers continue to look for answers despite being given #1 draft pick after #1 pick for what seems like a decade. You do'nt build Championship teams by stacking your top two lines with...

2014-2015 Calgary Flames Season Predictions

Can you feel it in the air? The brand new NHL season is only one sleep away! The Calgary Flames enter the season in year #2 (is that official?) of their rebuild plans. So what can we expect from the team this year? Will they be worse off? Better? Will they slip to #30...

2014 Entry Draft Philadelphia

The Calgary Flames approach the 2014 Entry Draft with the highest pick they've ever had as an organization. Who they take is largely up to what the teams ahead of them do. The Flames will get a quality player, but that franchise player? Well there's probably only one...

2013-2014 Calgary Flames Player Review

Well another season and come and gone, only this time there were no expectations for playoffs. In fact, there were few expectations at all. Because of the clean slate, Flames fans were delightfully impressed. Even though Calgary sat 5th worse in the entire league, it...

Another Trade Deadline Comes and Goes

Reto Berra and Lee Stempniak Traded The waiting game for Flames fans took until the final seconds of the trade deadline during this 2014 edition. Everyone knew what was in play from Calgary. With a number of UFAs, chief among them Mike Cammalleri, and in year 1 of a...

Flames Take Season Series: Calgary 5 – Chicago 4 (OT)

Buddy rang me up at ten to 4 and said he had box seats for the game. I actually sat and thought for a moment. Did I want to watch the Flames lose yet again. Sure, they've been on a bit of a run, but I wasn't thinking if they'd lose, but rather, by how much. But hey,...

Flames Dropped in Shoot-out After Brawl in Vancouver

Don't post many updates because a) the Flames suck, b) they aren't playing entertaining hockey. That changed on national coverage in Vancouver. A team with Cup aspirations barely squeaked out a victory in a shoot-out. But first, some context. Vancouver's coming off a...

Rare Win: Calgary 4 – Colorado 3

The Flames are in the bottom three. That's the bottom three teams in the entire league. All isn't a wash since we're still ahead of Edmonton, but winning and even scoring goals have been hard to come by in the past month. The Flames had a grand total of ONE goal in...
