2021 FlamesNation Prospect Rankings: #15 Yan Kuznetsov

Coming in at number 15 in the 2021 edition of Calgary Flames prospect rankings is defensive stalwart Yan Kuznetsov. The 2020 second-round selection is fresh off a solid and busy year where he was strong in his final NCAA season, secured a spot on the Russian World Junior club, and made his professional debut with…

Rasmus Andersson struggled in a more prominent role (2021 season in review)

Looking ahead at the 2021-22 season there were some question marks on the blue line as it pertains to the Calgary Flames. Mark Giordano would be a year older, Chris Tanev was coming off a tough season and top pairing stalwart TJ Brodie was lost to Toronto in free agency. Rasmus Andersson seemed a solidifying…

Elias Lindholm proved himself at centre (2021 year in review)

Flames 4, Canadiens 2: Get that bread

The Flames played well and won an important game. That’s refreshing. Sure, they have played some decent hockey as of late but the urgency, pace, and translation into results has been variable. The boys in the monstrous black C, vertical stripe laden jerseys came out a dictated play for the majority of the hockey game….

Jets 3, Flames 2: ‘Dopey’ first costs the Flames

Another day, another regulation loss for the Calgary Flames. They played okay last night. They had the puck a lot and made a push late. But, okay isn’t close to good enough right now. The predictable and perimeter brand of hockey this club keeps rolling out may as well be trademarked at this point. Scoring…

Flames 4, Leafs 3: Don’t Touch Johnny

After each and every game the Calgary Flames play, we all wrack our brains and try to come up with some articulate lesson we can garner from the 60+ minutes we just watched.
