Flames Add More Pieces to Management Puzzle

Yesterday the club announced the removal of the 'interim' from Jay Feaster's title. He will proceed as the undisputed GM for the team this coming year. Jury is out on his effectiveness. He was left an utter mess in payroll by his predecessor Darryl 'Stajan was a good...

Calgary Flames Sign Curtis Glencross to 4 year deal

The Herald is reporting that Glencross has signed a deal reported to be worth about 2.55 million a season. The signing means the Calgary Flames secured their third line winger who occasionally played up and certainly overachieved this year with over 20 goals. Is $2.55...

Flames Drop Season Closer: Calgary 2 – Vancouver 3 (SO)

The Flames closed the season much the way they opened, with a loss. Albeit this time they had a bit more jump and provided home fans with some entertainment. The Flames were playing for nothing. Mostly the same with Vancouver. Nonetheless the teams put on a good show....

Jarome Iginla Registers 1000th Point: Calgary 3 – St Louis 2

In a meaningless game that I wasn't going to bother covering two newsworthy items. 1. Jarome Iginla registered his 1000th point in a three point night. Anybody who advocated this guy's trade mid-way through the season is a moron. almost 40 goals and 90 points. No bad...

Season Done: Anaheim 4 – Flames 2

Nothing to report, just that he Flames didn't show up yet again. They don't have gas in the tank it seems. Which is a good thing, because now we can expect the same wholesale changes we were looking for in December. Golf Flames Golf!

Comeback Capped: Calgary 5 – Edmonton 4 (SO)

If I had stopped watching this game, which most probably did after two periods, we would've had a summary that including blasting overpaid hockey players for failing to show up to work. The Calgary Flames are fighting for their playoff lives. The Edmonton Oilers are a...

Put a Fork in it They’re Done: Calgary 3 – San Jose 6

Mathematically the Flames are still in the playoff race, but as a team they are so far behind the level of the playoff bound teams that I'll conclude along with others that it's over. Here are the reasons why: 4) Major injuries early, but what really hurt were...

Flames Fail in LA: Calgary 1 – Kings 2 (SO)

"If they don't score on this powerplay we're done." I said that 5 times. I was right, it just took longer than expected. Calgary can still make the playoffs but it's going to be damn hard from here on in. They've lost too many games they need to win, and unfortunately...

Referees Hand Anaheim Big Win: Flames 4 – Ducks 5 (SO)

Call the 'referee ombudsmen' because there's something fishy about this one. The NHL should be embarrassed when referees make such unabated attempts to skew the outcome of games. Conspiracy theorists will giggle with glee that Gary Bettman's policy to prop up American...

Expected: Calgary 5 – Colorado 2 (9 GR)

The Flames put the brakes on a three game losing streak with a win against the lowly Colorado Avalanche who haven't won a game in 20. The last time Calgary lost three games in a row it was 2010. Now, every point counts. The Flames started the night in 9th place with...

Losers. Calgary 3 – Phoenix 4

Talk about folding the tent. Calgary played a pathetic game. The crowd was absent for 50 minutes (pin drop in the first period). The Flames had three defensive breakdowns that are uncharacteristic of this team that essentially put the nail in the coffin at the...

Flames Fail: Calgary 3 – Vancouver 4

First back to back regulation loss in over two months. That's really good. Really good at this point, unfortunately, doesn't cut it. I said after the Phoenix game that Calgary were going to lose tonight> I also suggest we don't want to wind up 8th because that would...

No Gas in the Tank: Calgary 0 – Phoenix 3

Calgary surprisingly has a number of 20+ goal scorers from unlikely players, ones you do'nt expect to score, Moss, Glencross, Jackman. There are games then where you get waht you expect, a Flames that can't do much other than whiff shots at the net. Calgary couldn't...

Calgary Flames 4 – Dallas Stars 3 (SO)

Calgary takes the season series against the Dallas for the first time in a long time. It wasn't easy either. If you shut off the TV after the first period then maybe you would've though the game was in the bag. But in a 60 minute hockey game anything goes and for...

10 With 30: Calgary 3 – Nashville 2

5th place in the NW division where all teams have games in hand, Calgary took two points in another crucial game vs the Nashville Predators who just a month ago were in 4th place--now 11th. But how's this for wild. Jarome Iginla scored his 30th goal of the season, his...
