Draft Splash: Flames Trade for Hamonic and Draft

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 17:02:40 +0000

The Calgary Flames have made another enormous splash at the entry draft with a trade for the hottest commodity on the market–puck moving right-handed D man who can play top minutes. The Flames have solved their #3-4 spot issue for years to come and now boast among the league’s best top 4 tandems. The cost? Steep. We have acquired Travis Hamonic & a 4th rd pick in 2019 or 2020 from NYI for a 2018 1st rd pick, 2018 2nd...

Flames Fill Goalie Position Trading for Mike Smith from Arizona

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 23:24:58 +0000

The Calgary Flames have acquired 35-year old Mike Smith from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for the rights to Chad Johnson, unsigned prospect Brandon Hickey and a conditional third-round draft pick before the NHL’s trade freeze kicked in Saturday afternoon. The third-round pick will become a second-round pick if the Flames qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs next season. Arizona retained 25 per cent of Smith’s $5.67 million deal, which has two seasons remaining. This trade is basically Mike Smith for $4.25...

Should the City of Calgary Subsidize Hundreds of Millions to the Calgary Flames? CalgaryNext, New Arena, Olympics, and more

Tue, 02 May 2017 15:53:54 +0000

Updated June 10th, 2017. Yesterday, the Calgary Sun released a piece throwing their support behind sending hundreds of millions of public dollars to the private enterprise Flames organization. Apart from the garbage journalism (that we expect with the Sun), it didn’t do justice to the overall situation of public dollars for billionaire owned sports arenas. Here’s the best piece of read thus far on the topic pertaining to Calgary. Two years in, and still no critical thought of the new...

Golf Flames Golf – A Playoff Recap

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 15:28:59 +0000

Views. A post shared by Calgary Flames (@nhlflames) on Apr 17, 2017 at 9:12pm PDT Now that the dust has settled and the abbreviated playoff appearance is over, fans can look back at the debacle that was this year’s first round series vs the Anaheim Ducks. Going into the series everyone remarked how this team was better than the one that went out 4-1 two years ago against a similar Ducks team. Instead, it was worse, much worse. Although in...

Revisiting the Non High-Stick

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 15:48:20 +0000

This is a picture of an NHL sized net. It measures 4×6. That’s four feet high by six feet wide. Last night’s game featured this goal that was ruled NOT a high-stick (good goal). This frame is an instant after the puck struck the stick, so it was fractionally higher. Remember the rule: any contact with the puck with the stick above the crossbar (four feet) is high sticking. Here’s what the secret team in Toronto ruled. Now, get a...

Controversy Abounds – League Officials Make Crucial Decision

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 05:28:04 +0000

Flames Fall 0-3 in Series The players on the ice in this series aren’t the only ones making the decisions. In games 1 and 2 you had some curious officiating, and even the need for league officials to step in for goal reviews. Tonight, you can’t blame the refs, Calgary had all the powerplays, but you had one of the most incredulous non-no-goal calls since the 2004 Stanley Cup Finals. Ahead by two late, Anaheim drew within one on an...

Officials Hand Flames Game 2 Loss

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 05:50:39 +0000

Calgary 2 – Anaheim 3 Too much to write about after an exciting Game 2 that was ultimately decided by the refs. In playoff hockey you come to expect a certain leeway in calls, but for the Flames, they will never (#widemaneffect eh!?) benefit from impartial officiating. They had a go-away goal called back in the second (weak, but you can see it), a late PP for Anaheim thanks to a weak holding the stick penalty (Perry interferes with Hamilton),...

Abysmal. Calgary Drops Game 1 : Flames 2 – Ducks 3

Fri, 14 Apr 2017 05:49:36 +0000

If this was a regular season game, and Dennis Wideman was playing, you could blame him and the refs. But this is the playoffs, and the Flames didn’t show up, that’s as simple as it gets. It was abundantly obvious that nerves got the best of the young team, as they spent most of the game on the penalty kill. It’s easy to blame the officials, they called a terrible playoff game, but they were bad for BOTH sides, and...

Proving Nothing: Calgary 1 – Anaheim 3

Wed, 05 Apr 2017 05:26:16 +0000

The Flames haven’t won in Anaheim in years (13 years) and could’ve used a win to show themselves they stand a chance against what is likely to be their first round opponents. The MO on Anaheim is simple, they’re a big team that will hurt you, they get away with a lot, and they can score. They’re a force, and the Flames have tried to stand tall against them but can’t win. Here’s why. The younger team needs to take...
