The Gaudfather

So about this time last December I arranged something with college hockey site BC Interruption so Flames fans could get their hands on Gaudrey Baker t-shirts. Because at the time, fourth round pick and smallest player ever chosen by the Flames organization, Johnny Gaudreau was tearing up College hockey. 

Well guess what? He's doing it again this year. Moreso, in fact. He's putting up nearly unprecedented numbers in the college ranks.

So we figured it was time FN designed our own Gaudreau homage shirt.

Enter: The Gaudfather. Keep your veterans close, but keep your prospects closer. Or something.

These beauties go on sale today for a limited time only and I fully exepct everyone to buy at least three of them. Johnny Hockey isn't yet signed to a contract with the Flames org, so let's do our part to let him know we'd really, really like him to be a Calgary Flame.

Allow 3-4 weeks to ship.

BONUS! - #GRITCHART

You asked, we answered.

#GRITCHART isn't just an internet meme or inside joke anymore. It's also a shirt! Show your friends, families, co-workers, enemmies and garbage man that you know what it takes to play hard every night...no matter how hurt you are or how useful your efforts might be.

UPDATE - We've added an option to the GRITCHART check-out process where you can choose to add a FlamesNation logo to the back if you so desire!

Bad news everyone. Brian McGratton is hurt.

Worse news everyone, the need for an enforcer is so great that Lane Mcdermid was recalled.

but then again...

I love how this article directly followed after Lambert's in which he pleaded in point 4 to slow down on the Gaudreau hope and praise...

Anyway this T-shirt is tempting but I wish I could see a picture of someone wearing it or something... I don't wanna buy it and not wear it cause I don't like the fit or look...

I'm assuming Brian Burke is not very busy attending non-Flames related functions....if I were him I would be spending lot's of time at Boston College getting a read on Johnny G and Billy Arnold. He better be convinced that these young guys are going to sign on with the Flames and there are no nasty games being played behind the scene involving the Bruins or anyone else!!

Throw the FN logo on the back of the #GRITCHART shirt and I'll be throwing cash like Fry.

Not to potentially ruin the shirt, but I thought his name was pronounced goo-droh. Am I wrong on that?

I'd be into one with a FN logo too. But I'll buy it anyway if that isn't a possibility!

I posted roughly the same comment on the other thread. If players are supposed to be called up based upon merit I can think of a few wingers on the Heat that merit it before MacD. Rhino who we just returned, Hanko, Ferland and Nemo all deserve a look first; all are big bodies who should have been called up. The argument will it's about the role, yet none of the other recalls have been about role. I hope he is better than I think and that playing 2-7 minutes is not to much for him.

How do these T-Shirts fit size wise (on the big side of things or the small side of things?), I fluctuate between a L or XL depending on the brand.

Excellent timing Wilson.
