Flames Acquire Modin

  As predicted, Feaster was pretty quiet today, scooping Brett Carson from the waiver wire and trading a 7th round pick for 36-year old Fredrik Modin. The former Lightning center/winger has just seven goals and 10 points in 36 games for the Thrashers this year and is six seasons removed from his last 30 goal season.


Flames Claim Brett Carson

      Calgary made a minor move today, claiming former Calgary Hitman Brett Carson off of waivers from the Carolina Hurricanes. Carson is mostly an NHL ‘tweener, having played in just 72 NHL games over the last 4 seasons. The 25-year old is more "veteran" than Mikkelson, but hardly moves in the needle in terms…


Postgame: Razor Thin

In a game where this is virtually nothing seperating the two competitors, sometimes all it takes is one, and that’s all it took on Sunday night as the Calgary Flames got back on the winning side of things, taking a 1-0 win over the St. Louis Blues at the ‘Dome.  It was as even a…

Flames Trade Deadline Roundtable

    With the Flames position heading into the trade deadline murkier than ever, this deadline discussion proved to be one of the tougher roundtables to put together. Jay Feaster isn’t in a prime position to either buy or sell since the Flames aren’t a team that can easily tank or contend in the present. The…

    With the trade deadline upcoming on Monday, this weekend could be a busy one in terms of general NHL movement. Already this morning a whole slew of waiver wire transactions have taken place:


Postgame: Enjoy the Point

It wasn’t the best display of how to protect a one goal lead put on by the Calgary Flames on Friday night, and in the end, the home side was unable to hold on, falling 4-3 in a shootout to the San Jose Sharks.  Calgary was able to earn the single point, but with slight…
