So it looks like I chose the wrong afternoon/evening to go offline. I figured the drama of the day was done after the big Phaneuf trade, but I guess I underestimated Darryl Sutter. TSN is now reporting that the Flames will announce a trade with the New York Rangers that will send Jokinen and Prust [...]

So it’s official. Dion Phaneuf is no longer a member of the Calgary Flames. The rumours that have been circulating for the last week came true today as Dion was shipped to the Toronto Maple Leafs with Freddie Sjostrom and Keith Aulie in exchange for Matt Stajan, Niklas Hagman, Jamal Mayers and Ian White. In [...]
We’re 30 minutes to puck drop and the story all day today has been about the referee. After facing a controversy for “allegedly” telling Canucks forward Alexandre Burrows that he was going to get him during Vancouver’s game against Nashville on Monday, Stephane Auger is set to don the stripes and orange armband for tonight’s [...]
I want Craig Anderson dead. Whether it’s right to say that or not, it’s true, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. It seems that the Colorado Avalanche can do no wrong against the Calgary Flames this season and they proved it when they rolled into the ‘Dome tonight hoping to take over first [...]
Despite the fact that some idiot in Vancouver thought it would be a good idea to shine a laser in Miikka Kiprusoff’s eyes all night, the Flames won 3-2 in the shootout, regaining their lead atop the Northwest Division and proving that they are the tougher team, mentally and physically. Anyone who watched tonight would [...]
I’ve taken a bit of flack from my friends for not updating my blog for 3 weeks, but really, if I could have chosen a better 3 weeks to take a mini-break from the Flames (because I was sooo busy!) this would have been it. Since my last post 3 weeks ago, the Flames have [...]
I haven’t written anything since the blowout loss against Chicago last Saturday, but the Flames have been on a tear so it’s time for a little summary. The Flames played 5 games last week, taking 9 of 10 points and heading into Grey Cup Sunday on a seriously high note. Last Saturday, the Flames put [...]
I can’t remember the last time the Flames got blown out this bad. Final score: 7-1, at home. Another loss to Chicago. But hey, at least Jokinen scored… I’m sure I wasn’t the only one that thought the Flames would come out ready to play tonight, and I guess in a way I wasn’t wrong. [...]
The Calgary Flames added another player to their roster by signing free agent winger Fredrik Sjostrom to a 2 year deal worth $1.5M. Sjostrom was beloved by NY Rangers fans where he played for the last 2 years. He is a solid 4th liner who can play on the penalty killing unit.
The Calgary Flames have signed Defenceman Jay Bouwmeester to a 5-year deal, reportedly worth $6.68 Million per year. The team is expected to officially announce the signing during a press conference today.
I still remember it like it was yesterday. It’s amazing what a Stanley Cup Championship can do to a hockey fan. Exactly 20 years ago today, the Calgary Flames beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-2 in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals to clinch a 4-2 series win and become the first (and only) team [...]
The Chicago Blackhawks proved to be too much for the injury-riddled Calgary Flames tonight as they scored 4 times to hand the Flames a 4th straight first-round exit from the playoffs. Yes, it hurts. A 4th straight “One and Done” playoffs for the Flames… But it doesn’t hurt as much as it would have if [...]
