Flames Free Agency Frenzy Land Tanguay and Jokinen

There’s Still Calgary Hockey: Hitmen and Worlds

Not NHL hockey, although it's interesting to see teams without bonafide #1 C make the playoffs (Jokinen for Cammalleri anybody?), but there are a few Flames and Calgary connections still playing. Firstly, the Worlds are going on in Germany where a record crowd of over...

Sound Off: What Should the Flames Do in the Off-Season

Before we jump into our in-depth coverage of the debacle that was the 2009-10 Calgary Flames NHL season let's hear from you the fans. What should the ownership do in the off-season? Get rid of the management? Is Jarome safe? How about Regehr? Any big trades? Who do we...

Calgary Flames Face Plant in Season Ender

You'll note what I said about last game: ...you're going to get destroyed in Vancouver to emphasize everything that's wrong with this hapless club. The Flames didn't even show up tonight; they were an embarrassment to hockey, the club, and the city. Clearly this club...
