Flames Approaching Bottom Feeders: Calgary 1 – Phoenix 3

Let me break down this game the way I saw it. I actually thought the Flames played a decent game. In fact, they should've won but bad luck truly stymied the team. I'll get to my complaints about how horrific the officiating/diving was from the sad excuse of an NHL...

Jarome Iginla Trade Rumors

Let me chime in briefly on the Jarome Iginla trade rumors. Yes, he makes lots of cash, yes he hasn't been preforming. But NO. There's no trade that would work for Calgary--at least not now. Maybe when he's a bit older and the Flames are clearly never a cup contender...

Abysmal Slump Continues: Sharks 4 – Calgary 3

I don't think anybody anywhere thought Calgary would win this game. they made it closer than it really should've been, but the Flames just aren't a good team right now. Since day one consistency has been the issue, and it showed again today. The 'new' #1 line of...

Lost Cause: Calgary 4 – Phoenix 5

Just when you think the Flames could get on a roll and get out of the bowels of the Western Division they pull another stinker. Consistency is the name of the game for this team, and they just don't have it. When you look closer though, some glaring issues come to the...

Third Period Save: Calgary 4 – Avalanche 2

The Calgary Flames aren't playing a lot of hockey this week, so it's imperative that they find winning ways so they don't have to dwell on a loss. An already fragile psyche doesn't need any more problems....like the existing ineptitude to score goals. Calgary didn't...

Calgary 1 – Detroit 2

Well they stopped the bleeding but they haven't made any inroads to playing winning hockey. Calgary lost yet again and the frustrating thing is this team is the SAME TEAM from the past two years (if not more). Same problems, same lack of scoring, same junk. And a...

Ouch: Flames 2 – Capitals 7

Yea, seven goals. Jarome Iginla, none, in fact, he's getting worse. Calgary was off to a 2-0 start but gave up quick goals twice to get hammered 7-2. Bad penalties started the downward spiral which lead to the inevitable pounding. Not worth typing if the FLames can't...

Flames 5 – Avalanche 6

The Flames could help themselves win if they could muster enough desire to skate with young blood. Colorado doesn't really boast a bonafide star. Sure, maybe Hedjuk is in the mix, but he's washed up....kinda of like Jarome Iginla. Why the Flames lost tonite? Simply...

Craig Conroy Celebrates 1000 Games

Surprisingly the elder statesman Conroy hasn't hit 1000 games, whereas Langkow and Iginla have. Nonetheless, the achievement is a milestone in one's career, and it will even come with a silver stick presented by the Flames (not sure if that's tonight.) Here what's...

Calgary Takes BOA Version 3: Flames 5 – Oilers 4 (SO)

Well that was mostly unnecessary.... After Deadmonton fans realised their fortunes this season may not even translate into a playoff spot (let's face it, still not a good team), they came into Calgary to face the Flames for the third time in the first month of the new...

Flames Beat Up Sharks: 4-0

Well that was unexpected. The Flames, fresh off a 6-2 win against Columbus came back home to face the always tough San Jose Sharks. What most wondered was what kind of Flames team was going to show up. So far this season Calgary has been average at best, playing well...

Slightly Above Average: Flames 6 – Columbus 2

So far this season the Flames are performing slightly above average. Their 4-3 record would indicate the same thing. Their top players putting up big points every other game legitimizes the record. Tonight the top two lines decided to play and the Flames came out on...

Flames Fail: Lose in Detroit 4-2

You know why the Flames lost? Two reasons. 1) The PP sucks. 2) The top players suck. Everyone thought life was great after Calgary's great win over Edmonton. Truth be told, we're now six games into the new season and the top line (top players) have only produced in...

Road Win #1 in Music City: Calgary 1 – Nashville 0 (OT)

Watching the game today on Sportsnet Flames someone came in during the third period and said, "Slow Mo Johnson!" Suggesting the game was slow, in slowmo, and any other slow you want to talk about. Sure there were moments with some big hits, but really, Calgary played...
