On open letter to Pittsburgh Penguins fans, Re: Iggy

Dear Pittsburgh Penguins fans, Congratulations, you are now in possession of one of the greatest hockey players of all time. Actually, what am I thinking…. you’re now in possession of 3 of the greatest hockey players of all time. You already had two and with the addition of Jarome Iginla, you’ve now got 3 in […]

Jarome Iginla traded to Pittsburgh Penguins

Holy crap. What a roller coaster tonight has been. After an almost certain consensus that Jarome Iginla was going to Boston, the Calgary Flames announced tonight that their captain would, instead, be going to the Pittsburgh Penguins. This time, it’s for real though. It’s on NHL.com and the Flames Tweeted it. The #Flames have traded […]

INCORRECT: Jarome Iginla has NOT been traded to the Boston Bruins

UPDATE: The Flames announced tonight that this information was incorrect and that Calgary has traded Iginla to the Pittsburgh Penguins. After an evening full of speculation, it is now official.

Jarome Iginla trade with Boston Bruins is apparently “imminent”

Jarome Iginla is a healthy scratch for the Calgary Flames game versus Colorado tonight. The reason can only be that the long-time Flames captain is in the process of being traded. The main, and most reputable rumour seems to indicate that Iggy is bound for the Boston Bruins. If this is true, TSN’s Bob McKenzie […]

Calgary Flames: Tanguay-Iginla-Stajan

Flames earn 5th straight victory with 4-1 win over Coyotes

The Calgary Flames have chosen a great time to go on a win streak.

Baertschi’s goal was his […]

Calgary Flames burn Toronto Maple Leafs 5-1

Every time the Toronto Maple Leafs and Calgary Flames play some Leafs fan pipes up about how the Leafs “won” the Phaneuf trade. Every time I read this I laugh as it seems that Leafs Nation has not come to fully appreciate the defensive liability that is their Captain… the honourable Dion Phaneuf. Phaneuf was […]

4-goal first period leads Flames to win over Devils

The Calgary Flames jumped out to a 4-0 first period lead and hung on for a 6-3 win against the visiting New Jersey Devils tonight.

Calgary Flames- Jarome Iginla, Scott Hannan, Derek Smith, Olli Jokinen, Curtis Glencross

Flames outlast Wild for 2-1 win at the Saddledome

Jarome Iginla scored his 497th career goal in the second period and added an assist on Curtis Glencross’ first period goal to lead the Flames to a 2-1 win against the Minnesota Wild tonight. It seems that Iggy likes playing the Wild as he has scored 33 career goals against the Wild, more than any […]

Flames GM Jay Feaster squashes Jarome Iginla trade rumours

Calgary Flames GM Jay Feaster squashed any “trade Iggy” rumours that were floating around. Or did he? “Jarome Iginla has not been asked to waive his no-trade, and Jarome Iginla has not demanded a trade or asked for a trade,” Feaster said. “There is no list. There is no smoking gun. There is nobody on […]

Rangers steal last-second overtime win, beat flames 3-2

Ryan McDonagh took advantage of a big bounce off the end boards and buried the overtime winner into a wide-open Flames net to give the New York Rangers a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames tonight. McDonagh was in the right place at the right time and was the recipient of a Devon Brandon Dubinsky […]

Leafs host Flames tonight

Jarome Iginla and the Calgary Flames are in Toronto tonight for a match-up with Dion Phaneuf and the Toronto Maple Leafs. While both teams are looking for two points, the story of a Phaneuf-Iggy matchup will always come down to pride and ego. The Leafs are still unbeaten this season, though that really only means […]
