Friday Fan Poll: What Will Johnny Gaudreau Do?

Reports are saying the Calgary Flames and Johnny Hockey are still miles apart. So, technically, Johnny Gaudreau can’t be given an offer from other teams so his only options are to sign a contract and play, or hold out until either he gets what he wants or his contract ends and he goes elsewhere. He could also be traded but let’s get real here, it’s Treliving, not Peter Chiarelli...

How Many Rugged 2-Way Players Do the Flames Need?

I wonder if potential fourth-line wingers Garnet Hathaway, Michael Ferland and Lance Bouma have ever asked Flames defensive prospects Ryan Culkin, Kenney Morrison, Brett Kulak or Tyler Wotherspoon what they plan to dress up as for Halloween? My vote would be that they go as red-shirted expendable security officers from Star Trek because amusingly hockeydb.com lists them all at 6...

Flames Camp Opens With Little Progress on Gaudreau’s Contract

You’ll have to excuse Brad Treliving, GM of the Calgary Flames, if he’s not feeling the World Cup of Hockey hype right now. Mikael Backlund’s concussion, sustained at the tournament, combined with the stellar performance (4 pts in three games) of unsigned puck magician Johnny Gaudreau leaves the Flames with lots of unanswered questions as training camp gets underway.

2016-17 Season Preview: Calgary Flames

After a surprising run to the playoffs in 2014-15 that included a playoff series win (thanks to the horrible playoff system the NHL has), the Calgary Flames quickly regressed last season finishing completely out of the playoff picture. So which team are they? While two seasons ago was a clear fluke, I think this team is much closer to that team now, with two years of growth for...

Calgary Flames: Is Hunter Shinkaruk the next rookie watch?

The Calgary Flames have become very familiar with rookie watches. They have seen Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, and Sam Bennett emerge with solid rookie seasons, and each of them figures to be a consistent scorer for the remainder of their careers.

As far as internet memes go, “Harambe” the dead ape from the Cincinnati Zoo has some legs. The poor animal was shot back in May, but the internet has refused to let it go. It has even gone as far as the Cincinnati Zoo deleting their presence from all of social media. Calgary Flames draft pick Matthew Tkachuk is apparently on the bandwagon of people wanting Harambe’s name to...
