FGD: Lucky Number 9?

It’s been a while…so maybe the Flames are due?  The Flames have lost eight straight games against the Chicago Blackhawks, heading into their meeting of the season…it goes tonight at the Scotiabank Saddledome (7:30 pm, TSN and The FAN 960).  Regardless of the opponent, maybe it’s time the Flames snap out of this skid…it’s their…

Gameday Preview: Bête Noire, still?

      The Flames, fresh off another blah outing on Wednesday, have an opportunity to enjoy the company of the defending champs this evening.

It’s kind of hard to come up with clever titles for the postgame article…really, tonight’s title is exactly what the game was.  Another loss for the Calgary Flames.  This time, it was to the Phoenix Coyotes (again) by a 3-1 score at home.  Overall, Calgary has lost four straight at the ‘Dome and three in…

Gameday Preview: Phoenix Rising

  The loss to Phoenix last week might be one of the low points of the season for the Flames. It certainly was for the embattled Jarome Iginla, who played perhaps the worst game of his career in the desert. He battled back and was relatively effective the next night against a good in the…

Breaking Rumor: Kings Have Tabled an Offer for Iginla

  According to Dean Millard on the Pipeline show, the Los Angeles Kings are charging hard after Jarome Iginla, offering recently demoted prospect Branyden Schenn as part of the package. Schenn is the brother of Leaf Luke Schenn and a former 5th overall draft pick. He scored 99 points in the WHL last year, but struggled…

Teardown time?

  With the Flames struggling to begin the season, talk of blowing up the team and the management group has started again, with the potential move of the captain as the beginning of that move. I have to question if people really get what a teardown looks like, though, and if their understandable desire to…
