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 […]

Regehr waives No Movement Clause, traded to Buffalo (with Kotalik)

After a couple days of considering his options, Robyn Regehr has decided to waive his no movement clause and agree to a trade that will send him to the Buffalo Sabres. His agent has just confirmed that Reggie has agreed to the move. There is still no word on who is coming to the Flames […]

Rebuild or Re-Tool. What should the Flames do?

Thanks for a great season Flames fans! Though it’s been another tough one with no post-season appearance from the Flames, it has been fun to connect with so many of you online and in person. I’ve learned that there are a thousand different opinions on what it takes to make a good hockey team and […]

Flames bounce back with 7-4 win over Stars

Two days after being blown out 6-0 by the Minnesota Wild the Calgary Flames bounced back with a 7-4 win over the Dallas Stars. David Moss had 2 goals and one assist to lead the Flames. Brendan Morrison also had a good night assisting on two goals and adding one of his own in the […]

Flames acquire Kotalik and Higgins

I have to hand it to Darryl Sutter. He has single-handedly created the strangest 2 days in recent Flames history. After trading Dion Phaneuf to Toronto on Sunday morning, he then went to work on Olli Jokinen. The trade rumour that leaked last night was confirmed after tonight’s game as Flames GM Darryl Sutter announced […]

Jokinen and Prust for Kotalik and Higgins

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 […]

Buh-Bye Dion Phaneuf

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 […]

Primeau Traded to Leafs for Stralman and Stuart

The Calgary Flames have freed up some necessary cap space by trading forward Wayne Primeau to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for defenceman Anton Stralman and forward Colin Stuart. The Flames will receive Toronto’s 7th round draft pick in 2012 and the Leafs will receive Calgary’s 2nd round pick in 2011. The trade frees […]

Flames Make Biggest Splash on Trade Deadline Day

In past years, the Calgary Flames have been relatively quiet on Trade Deadline Day. This year was a different story as the Calgary Flames were front and centre in the media on the last day of trades for the 2008-2009 season. They made trades with the Phoenix Coyotes and the Colorado Avalanche to improve their […]

Tanguay Trade Rumours Start Again

The “Trade Alex Tanguay for Alex Kovalev” rumours have started again. After Calgary’s 5-4 shootout loss (and Kovalev’s post-game comments about Montreal head coach Guy Carbonneau) rumours started to circulate at RDS about the possibily of a Kovalev-Tanguay trade between Montreal and Calgary. This trade rumour is not a new thing… it’s been rumour-ed about […]
