WWYDW: Ramo Money? Ramo Problems.

IMO Rene Bourque could not have made this save. What Would You Do Wednesday Returns to talk puck-stoppers.The Flames certainly have an interesting decision ahead of them this upcoming summer in net. While it may be a little early to be getting into hypotheticals when a lot of the decision will involve what occurs over the…

Post Game: They came, Nassau, were conquered

Wherever this is, it sure looks like a happening spot. The Flames have played twice in New York on this road trip and have scored exactly 1 goal. That is not good. The Islanders beat the Flames 2-1 tonight and handed the Flames their second loss in three games on this exceedingly important road trip, There have…

WWYDW: Lord Byron Edition

You see, the trick for Byron scoring on breakaways is: remove all other players and put him in the best Flames sweater ever created. There. Simple. With Winnik and Tlusty both dealt this afternoon, the trades are starting to come fast and furious as the trade deadline approaches and I thought we should spend some time…

WWYDW: Glencrossroads

View image | gettyimages.com Today is Glencross day here at FN! What Would You Do Wednesday, Glencross edition. Heading into this season, it seemed a forgone conclusion that Curtis Glencross would be sold off to the highest bidder at the trade deadline this season. I myself figured the Flames would be in full “everything on…

POST GAME – Present? Tense.

Oh. Right. Meaningful hockey is absolutely the most nerve-wracking thing ever.  The Flames beat the San Jose Sharks for the third time this season on the road and moved back into second place in the Pacific Division. That is only the essential information though. This game was certainly a ring-a-ding-dong-dandy.There were times in this game where…

Baby Flames Weekend Recap

View image | gettyimages.com David Wolf had himself a heckuva weekend for the baby Flames. It’s the all-star break in NHL land and the fantasy draft was way, way more enjoyable than I think anyone was expecting. Probably because seemingly every single player (and one Russian even moreso) was life-chat drunk throughout the event. Also, the…

Post Game: Duck this place

It’s only been, as of posting this, 574 weeks and two days since the last Flames win in Anaheim. Which isn’t so bad when you consider that it is only 5,788,800 minutes so really you’re being a big baby. Plus, I don’t think it was very nice of the Anaheim city council (pictured here) to…

Post Game: “Hockey”

If you have to watch a replay of this game, make sure that you mute the commentary and instead play this. It will be more appropriate.  Yikes. Guys. Did we all see that? The Flames and Panthers played an “NHL” game tonight filled with “goaltending” and “defence.” The Panthers won 6-5 and the Flames just…

FGD: Gauds and Kings

I hope you all have taken time today to think about the last time the Flames played the Kings. Make that your happy place. Take a deeeep breath, close your eyes, and remember Jonathan Quick pushing Martinez out of the way en route to the dressing room. Exhale… That was satisfying wasn’t it? The Kings visit the…

FGD: TRAP GAME

It’s the first of back-to-backs for the Flames with Tomorrow’s game against Comeau and Co. in Pittsburgh. Man, that’s gonna be such a great game, I can’t wait to see all those stars play against the Flames. Wow, I wonder if the Flames will be able to skate with them (I’m pretty sure 50% of of…
