With the demotion of Markus Granlund and the waiving of Paul Byron and Mason Raymond earlier today, it’s basically officially that the Calgary Flames will have a three-headed goaltending monster – or “Crease Kraken” – for the beginning of the 2015-16 season.
Flames head coach Bob Hartley shared some intel with the assembled media masses earlier today in regards to his starting netminder for Wednesday’s opener against the Vancouver Canucks.

That leaves Joni Ortio in the press box for Wednesday night’s game.
Ramo played the most of the three Flames goalies during training camp, suiting up four times and putting up arguably the worst numbers of the three goalies – although he played with a mixed bag of experienced and inexperienced defenders during his games.
It’s yet to be seen how long the Flames keep trucking along with three goalies.
