Flames free agent targets: David Perron

In a little-publicized and often overlooked event in recent Flames history, when Jarome Iginla was traded on March 28, 2013 in exchange for REDACTED , the organization was cursed by a vengeful sea witch who vowed the team would never have success at right-wing again. When reached for comment, the vengeful harpy noted that it was punishment for…

Flames fire Glen Gulutzan, other coaches

The Flames dropped some pretty huge and mildly unexpected news this afternoon, firing head coach Glen Gulutzan, and assistants Dave Cameron and Paul Jerrard. The news comes following weeks of speculation regarding the coaching staff’s future and on the heels of a disappointing 2017-18 season.

Taking Stockton: Spencer Foo

Let’s face it, things haven’t been great this season in cowtown. Sometimes it’s helpful to take ourselves back to the summer, when optimism reigned and the Flames weren’t losing every single home game to eighth-string goalies. A part of that optimistic summer memory I wish to conjure for you is Spencer Foo, the college free…

Twilight of the Michaels: Flames Fan Nihilism

This is exhausting. Every single night: “Did the Predators beat the Sharks?” “Did the Kings beat Vegas?” “Are the Blues in or out?” “Milan Lucic removed his jersey at his own blue line, pledged allegiance to Beelzebub, and did what to Connor McDavid?” Do you find yourself wishing you didn’t care? That our leisure time was simply, less…

FlamesNation Mailbag: Jagr scoots, PP’s poop

I am pinch-hitting for the venerable Christian Tiberi this week, so I will do my best not to let him down. It’s the All-Star Break and I am sure we are all still basking in the glow of Johnny Gaudreau playing pretty well in the game itself (it’d be pretty nice to find Johnny a…

Matthew Tkachuk suspended one game

It’s been a rough couple months for the Flames’ precocious left-winger. Last night, Matthew Tkachuk speared Matt Martin while on the bench. As such, the NHL has suspended Tkachuk for tonight’s game against the Montreal Canadiens.

The More You Inferknow: Delayne Brian

Fans of hockey in Calgary surely know what it is like to cheer for a team with shaky netminding. It is certainly no fun. As a brief digression, I myself have watched actual hockey games and weighed the merits of Joey MacDonald or Danny Taylor in the NHL. Clearly, goaltending is an important component to building…

The More You Inferknow: Jacquie Pierri

The Inferno keep on rolling. It’s pretty crazy really, just how consistently awesome they are. This past weekend, the Inferno earned three out of a possible four points during a road trip to Toronto. Currently, having yet to lose in regulation this season, the Inferno sit atop of the CWHL, four points up on the…
