One thing that raised a bit of questions over the last few days was the concept of the NHL's Reserve List for each team. In the interest of clearing up any questions and ideally creating a nice sharable landing space for questions about the Calgary Flames' list, here's a quick reserve list primer.

These truly are exciting times to be a Flames fan. That much is evident by simply following this organization on a daily basis.
Dig even deeper though, and you’ll see that in terms of rookie production on the farm, we haven’t seen anything like it in over a decade! That’s a really long time ago.

The Calgary Flames made a roster move today. In response to the injury to goalie Karri Ramo, the Flames recalled the only other professional goaltender currently under an NHL contract.
So Brad Thiessen, the organization's number-four netminder, is a National Hockey League goalie for the first time in three seasons.

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you've all gotten sufficiently full on ham, chocolate, and the blood of Jesus. Before settling in for a late nap/early bed time here's First Star, Worst Star rising from the dead like the Easter Bunny!

These past few weeks have been pretty fun as a Flames fan. The team has inexplicably kept themselves right in the midst of the playoff race, and control their own fate. To do so, they've been able to happily bounce back and forth between a pair of quality goalies. Jonas Hiller played seven games throughout March, while Karri Ramo took 10 as he briefly took back the starter's role.
Hiller was given the game against the Blues in the third of a three-game starting stretch, while Ramo was allowed to get back into it against the Oilers.
At least, that was the plan, had Ramo not injured himself within the first minute. And whether he's fine or not, there's a pretty decent chance that's the last we've seen of Ramo as a Calgary Flame.
