FLAMES UFA PROFILE: Cory Sarich

  Let’s face it FlamesNation, I have not been the biggest advocate of Cory Sarich over the past few seasons – so when it came time to profile the Flames free agents, I’m probably the last one you expected to see doing the write-up. Sarich is going to be one of those players whether he…

Flames RFA PROFILES: BLAIR JONES

  Still the best picture out there of the Center and his expression sums up the Flames season, but what about this RFA should we pay the most attention to? By no means is Blair Jones going to dazzle fans with his offensive prowess ‘cuase that’s just not his game. What he did bring to…

THE KING’s SPEECH

  Last Wednesday I had the opportunity to attend the Flames information session held by Ken King. I felt this would be a good follow up to the piece I did last week regarding the direction and role of King within the organization. Although the session was not as candid as some of those in…

VOICE OF THE NATION – IS THAT WHITE SMOKE?

  Love him or hate him, there is little denying that the President of the Calgary Flames is a busy man these days. Many would say that Ken King had his hands full with running not just the Flames but also the Calgary Hitmen and the recently salvaged lacrosse team, the Calgary Roughnecks. But when…

Flames 2011-12 Player Grades: Goaltending

  After Kent broke down the end-of-season grades for the Top Six and Support Forwards, I turned the attention to the Defense. Last but not least, we take a look at the Calgary Flames last line of defense, the goal-tending.

VOICE OF THE NATION – The Feaster Identity

  "We have a very, very busy off-season ahead of us," said Feaster, adding that he didn’t want to talk about individual players or members of the coaching staff at this point. "It’s clear that we need to make changes. We’re going to have to do a number of things in the off-season, because this…

STOKING THE FIRE – April 7th

  So here it is, the final game day of the Calgary Flames season, and for the third year in a row it will end on the final day of the NHL regular season. That’s just too soon for Flames fans, as we are left to now search for a team that has the best…

POSTGAME – PLAYING FOR PRIDE?

  Another loss for the Flames that really no one is surprised by. Going into the game, Calgary had 0.2% of still making the playoffs which realistically meant they had no chance. Even gaining the point in overtime, with the Phoenix win and some games that will al put the math into place, the Flames…

POSTGAME: THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN?

  When you’re two points out of a playoff spot and you are playing a team in your own barn that you are trying to catch in the standings, it’s probably a good idea to come out with a lot of energy and throw everything including the kitchen sink at your opponent. Instead the Flames…

VOICE OF THE NATION – SOUL ASSYLUM

  When I looked at the last fifteen games of the season, I had banked on a split between the Flames and the Dallas Stars. Now with only five games remaining, that split carries a lot more negative connotations than before. There is no dispute that if Calgary was to pull out a miracle of…

POSTGAME: BURIED ALIVE!

  Once again the Flames find themselves on the short end of the stick, and with eight games left, there isn’t much of a stick left to grasp to. Going into this game, it was viewed that Calgary was going to need to go 6-2-1 to make the playoffs; well if it’s true, they burned…
