New Design for FlamesForum Blog

It's here, can't you tell?! The old design has been around the time we launched in 2006. But why stick with the old when you can have something cool and unique like our new FlamesForum design? What do you think? Give us your thoughts by commenting on this post. Let us...

Flames 2 – Avalanche 3 (OT)

Chalk one up for the refs--again. Calgary succumbed to their repeated trips to the penalty, including a WEAK OT call against Iginla, by allowing two goals, one in the final frame and one in OT. Despite leading for almost 45 minutes Calgary dropped a much needed point...

The West Got Tougher – Calgary to make move?

The West just got tougher, and it's the top teams that bolstered their lineup. With a few hours before trading deadline the San Jose Sharks acquired top defencemen Brian Campbell from Buffalo for Steve Bernier and a first round draft pick. The Dallas stars greatly...

Flames 2 – Wild 1

Coming off a solid (although not 100% convincing) win against Detroit at home, Calgary had a chance to push closer to number 1 in the NW division. Coming into a usually hostile Minnesota building it was the visitors that came out flying. Calgary limited the shots for...

Road Trip Concludes – Flames Trade Deadline Looms

Calgary has come off their last game of a 5 game road-trip with six of a possible 10 points. Given the fact they squandered an easy two in LA and the environment at home amongst fans calling for blood, the Flames went .600 on the road trip. Things could be worse, but...

Calgary 3 : Dallas 2 – Road Trip Ends

Calgary arrived in Dallas at 4AM to finish their five game road swing. A win would help them salvage a road-trip with six overall points. Not so bad given the two game loss debacle early in the week. Last time these two teams met Calgary was embarrassed, actually...

Flames Acquire Vandermeer from Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers have sent tough guy defenceman Jim Vandermeer to the Flames for a 2009 third round pick. Vandermeer, 27, has three goals, 15 points and 71 penalty minutes in 54 games this season with the Blackhawks and Flyers. He was originally signed as a...

Flames 4 – Coyotes 1

I only caught about half this game, but WTF?! Honestly, people, please, explain what the hell is wrong with this team? Great showing tonight, a near complete game, but they crap their pants for the two games prior? Are they going to poop the sheets tomorrow too? We'll...

Flames 2 – Ducks 4 (Corey Perry is a Coward)

Calgary Flames Just Can't Produce On Ice This team's gotta be bi-polar. Fresh off their most recent California shalacking against the lowly Kings, Calgary came out with a taste of bitterness against the Ducks. A sense of urgency, something that's seen every other game...

Flames 3 – Kings 6

Yes fans, the score is correct. Calgary lost against one of the worst teams in the NHL. Should you be surprised? Probably not, the team has been playing below average for almost a month now. Is there cause for concern? I'd say so. With a talented club and a coach...

Flames 4 – Sharks 3 (OT)

Gosh, you really wanted to blame the refs in this one on the refs, calling seven straight penalties against the Flames, but really you couldn't. A total of eleven shots on goal for the Flames compared to 31 for the Sharks was the tally at the end of two periods....

BOA Fights

The latest installment of the Battle of Alberta that saw numerous majors: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pm32NEKoJ_w] HockeyFights.com (bless them) ranked Moreau with the 86% win. Actually, Hockeyfights.com is cool, the idiot Yankees who vote in the system...

Calgary 4 – Edmonton 1

Battle of Alberta Rages On The second game in a week between provincial rivals went down in Calgary early Saturday evening. The highly anticipated event comes soon after the most recent brush up in Edmonton last week where fists were flying but Edmonton took the upper...

Zack Stortini – NHL’s Worst Lover

Just in time for Valentine's day I thought we'd show you the lighter side of hockey--the lovin. It's time we divulge the worst kept secret in the NW division. Zack Stortini, 'tough guy' for the Edmonton Oilers, is hands down the crappiest lover in the NHL. Need proof?...
