Calgary Flames Add Bob Hartley as Coach

More of the Same Since Darryl Sutter left in his role as coach (where he is most competent) there has been a revolving door of sense in the Flames organization. First it was the promotion of Jim Playfair who didn't perform up to the expectations fans and management...

Sutter Let Go: Changes Abound as Season Closes

Once Sutter's contract ends at the end of June the Calgary Flames and coach Sutter will part ways. This paves the way for a new ethos in the organization. Now, this is merely the first step of many to revive the club. Fact remains that there have been a few coaches...

Season Closes With Win: Calgary 5 – Anaheim 2

Well the Flames ended the season with two wins, but overall it's one of the worst in recent memory. Calgary chalked up a measly 90 points good for 10th (or 9th) in the Western Conference. There were a few bright spots throughout the year, we'll cover that in a...

Another Atrocious CBC Game: Calgary 2 – Vancouver 3

Just two thoughts after yet another loss from the Flames. 1. I didn't think Karlsson was that bad. Despite the horrid commentary on him he was decent. The only issue was, Leland Irving is decent too. I was hoping Karlsson would steal the game and prove his worth, but...

Flames Gift Wrapped Win: Calgary 5 – Dallas

Back and forth they went with the Flames finally hanging on for the win with PP goals, weak goals against, and everything in between. 5 games left, 3 points out, chances are slim. Do you still have hope? I'm off the wagon.... Heck, i had free tickets to go to the game...

Nope. Calgary 1 – Dallas 4

Even at their best the Flames can't compete. They threw everything they had at Dallas and fell short. That should be indicative to management that when everyone is playing at their 'best' this team is and 11th place team. Changes? Never. So long as Flames fans...

Garbage. Flames 2 – Minnesota 3 (SO)

Flames should be embarrassed. Stay on the road boys, nobody wants you back here. Seems Sutter gave up too. We know the top players are dragging their feet (less Kipper, who I blame whole heartedly for no rebuild because of his stellar play). Sutter played the 3-4th...

Weak Effort in Must Win: Calgary 1 – Columbus 2 (SO)

For some reason this season was one where Calgary COULDN"T beat teams at the bottom of the standings if their lives depended on it. Tonight it did and they put in a weak effort. Losing to Edmonton, one of the worst in the NHL, that hurt. What hurt more was the effort....

Flames Fail Against Sad Oilers: Edmonton 3 – Calgary 1

The Flames can ill afford to drop points against 'NHL' hockey clubs like the sad Edmonton Oilers. The Flames have to play better than .700 (3 losses) in the remaining eleven games if they have any hope on making the playoffs.....what they can't do it drop the games...

Calgary 4 – Phoenix 1

The race continues to the post-season as the Flames are making the most of their chances and particular individual Flames are taking their chances while they have them as well. After a come from behind victory last night against Vancouver, putting them at 81 points,...

Fast Paced Affair Leads to Victory: Calgary 5 – Winnipeg 3

The Jets came to town. Years in the making the Winnipeg Jets returned to Calgary and with them came a multitude of fans. Something about the atmosphere in the rink and the torrid pace of Eastern Conference teams coming to the 'Dome made for an exciting evening. Other...

Depleted Lineup Beats Montreal: Calgary 5 – Habs 4

Surprisingly Montreal came into Calgary the worst team in the league--and the Flames barely beat them. Things aren't looking good. Jackman out with an injury (not that he was a goal scoring machine), so that essentially means two full lines from the AHL come Friday...
