Beyond the boxscore – P8: Now we wait…

Am I concerned about “slow” starts? Yes, because it happened again (more on that down low). When the top guns hit full stride were they dominant? Yes, they were. That second period was an awakening for the Flames who dominated the Jets defence and were able to get high danger chances in abundance. Hockey is…

Beyond the boxscore – P7: Highs and lows

Wednesday’s game was like a mountain – the Flames started off in a valley not doing much, then they rose to their peak in the middle of the journey, before coming back down to another valley where not much was going on for them. Winnipeg was the better team; Nik Ehlers was fantastic against many…

Beyond the boxscore – P6: Hanirazz returns

An entertaining start slowly shifted into a relaxed second half for the Flames. We had creative bright spots and some really hard questions coming from the blueline – and not in a positive way either. Some welcome backs to the ice for Noah Hanifin and Sean Monahan: one played really well, the other played in…

Beyond the boxscore – P4: Push the play

Can we talk about that never-ending shift in the third period where the Flames spent multiple minutes just burying the Canucks in their own zone. Now that was entertaining to watch for Flames fans. Yes we still need to preface everything with the “it’s pre-season” reminder, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t any less fun…

Beyond the boxscore – P3: Camp is more interesting than we thought

Well, that was a pretty fun hockey game to watch. The Flames put their big guns in for a night and they didn’t disappoint. It’s unfortunate they lost, but some younger members of this club played well tonight. Albeit against the Seattle (Half) Kraken. Not quite everyone was on every aspect of their game, but…

2021 FlamesNation Prospect Rankings: #9 Jeremie Poirier

He probably flies under the radar as one of the most skilled prospects in the Calgary Flames’ cupboards. Most likely because he’s a defenceman and they’re supposed to do defence first, offence second. Not the man that comes in at number 9 – Jeremie Poirier.

2021 FlamesNation Prospect Rankings: #19 Cole Huckins

Big centers with size combined with great offensive instincts and patience with the puck. Hard to find in the modern NHL.  One of the most recent draft picks of the Flames who fits this mould falls in at number 19 on our list – Cole Huckins.

Flashpoint: free agency (so far)

Free agency, a day of hope and dreams that usually ends with egregious over-payments and the blatant disregard for teams long term outlooks as half the league try to chase the (1) Stanley Cup that will be awarded in the upcoming season. It’s a day where you can sign the next Kyle Okposo, David Clarkson,…
