Expect a Quiet Trade Deadline in Calgary

Considering their rough start to the season, it’s a bit shocking that the Calgary Flames approach the National Hockey League’s trade deadline in the midst of a playoff push. Despite winning just five of their first 16 games and sitting near the conference’s basement in mid-November, the Flames have buckled down and improved. As a result, they may be in a position to strategically...

Flames Monday Musings: A Wild Week

This past week was an up-and-down one for the Calgary Flames, to say the least.  Following their five-day break, the team came out flying on Monday night against the Arizona Coyotes, registering 19 shots on goal in the first period alone.  Finding themselves unable to beat Mike Smith early, however, the Flames then fell flat on their face in the second and third periods, en route...

Only in this scenario, the three ridiculously-looking contestants ("These people...

Anaheim Ducks prospect Max Jones lost his temper in a recent OHL game between the London Knights and the Owen Sound Attack and it resulted in a brutal attack on Jonah Gadjovich. Jones wasn’t too pleased that Gadjovich was still fighting for the puck in his team’s crease and it led to a slash to the back of the legs and a cross-check to the face. That’s just ugly.Jones should...

Gaudreau’s up and down Season

A common expression among coaches when their team has lost is “Our best players weren’t our best players.” The logic behind that saying in the National Hockey League is that a team’s best players usually play the most, score the most and get paid the most, so when they’re simply not playing well it’s really difficult for a team to win games. For the Calgary Flames, the...

Calgary Flames: Dennis Wideman needs to go

Few things went wrong in the Calgary Flames’ win over Minnesota on Wednesday, but the stress level went way up at the beginning of the eastern road. It is not hard to see the issue with the Flames, however. They have a defenseman, Dennis Wideman, who is playing his way off the roster very quickly. Statistically, he has not looked terrible. He has three goals and 13 assists in 2016...

Calgary Flames: All-Star Break Update

The Calgary Flames had all the intentions in the world to return to the postseason after an underwhelming 2015-2016.

Calgary Flames: The uninspiring play

Watching the Calgary Flames over the past week has been painful. It was just a week ago that the Flames had a decent margin in the wild card race, but they are likely to be on the outside looking in during the All-Star Break, an anticipation that has likely gotten into the players’ heads. Since Jan. 13, the Flames have lost six of seven. That is not unheard of, especially since...
