FGD: Oh Great…

Well, on paper this one seems like a bit of a mismatch…the floundering Calgary Flames riding a three game losing skid take on the NHL best Philadelphia Flyers this morning in the City of Brotherly Love (11 am, Sportsnet Flames and The FAN 960).  The Flames have yet to post a victory on this five…

Game Day Preview: Feeling the Love

      The Flames have a Black Friday matinee this afternoon in the City of Brotherly Love, at a time where love of any sort for the team has been tough to come by. I can’t imagine matters getting any easier today, as Calgary meets a very talented club that’s also got the percentages…

Flames 2010-11 Quarter pole Roundtable

    (As usual, Robert Cleave and Pat Steinberg were good enough to provide some interesting answers to my rather un-interesting questions. It was tough to veer away from inquiries like "how many effigies have burned of Sutter so far?", but we managed – KW) 1.) The Flames are 14th in the WC through the…

Some Positive Spin

  (Puck Prospectus’ Robert Vollman tries to distract us all from the Flames lousy November with his recent numbers-based offering) Down in the dumps about the losing skid and need some good news? After the downright heresy of suggesting that Lanny McDonald’s and Mike Vernon’s numbers shouldn’t have been retired, I felt I owed you…

Postgame: Zzzzzzzzz

That was as uneventful a hockey game as we’ve seen involving the Flames this season, and that includes a 3-0 loss to Florida early on in the season.  Calgary’s 2-1 shootout loss to the Devils on Wednesday night was difficult to watch, and the end result was either positive or negative…the negative, a third straight…

FGD: It’s T-Shirt Time!

I’m hoping you get my Jersey Shore reference, and if you don’t, then I’ve completely outed myself as one of the only FlamesNationers to have watched the oddly entertaining MTV program.  What it has to do with tonight’s Flames-Devils game in Newark (5:30 pm, TSN and The FAN 960)?  Absolutely nothing, but anytime I can get a…

Gameday Preview: Ship Wreck on the Jersey Shore

  Brent’s ex-team was the subject of one of the most controversial contract disputes this past off-season when they tried to sign Ilya Kovalchuk into his grey hair years. The deal was eventually re-jigged and okay’d after initially being rejected by the league, but I’m guessing the organization is starting to feel a bit like…

No Suspension for Marc Staal

I have nothing really to add to the issue, frankly. Upon first viewing, I thought the hit targeted the head. Upon second viewing, Im not certain whether he hits Stajan in the shoulder/chest, causing his head to snap back, or whether he really did make contact with the head. I also don’t know what the…
