Should Mark Giordano’s injury affect Calgary Flames’ deadline decisions?

D-Day is looming – deadline day, that is – and pressure is building for many teams, including the Calgary Flames. Curtis Glencross’ name has already been dangled as trade bait, and with the Flames in the middle of a playoff battle the question has become: buyers or sellers? Even with a healthy team the answer wasn’t so easy to come …

Pressure building for Calgary Flames in final months

There hasn’t been much opportunity for Calgary Flames to test their character this season: coming into 2014-15 with low outside expectations of success, there wasn’t any need for the Flames to prove much of anything. With just over two months remaining in the season, and the playoffs looming, much has changed for Calgary. They’ve found themselves in the middle of …

Are the Calgary Flames for real?

By February it’s usually pretty clear who the contenders in the playoff hunt are and who the pretenders are. The Washington Capitals: Contenders. Colorado Avalanche: Contenders (though pretty close to pretenders). Calgary Flames: Contenders? No, that’s not a typo. It hasn’t been the conventional route – okay, late game comebacks and stealing wins is pretty conventional for the Avs – …

Calgary Flames forwards producing more, creating success

The struggles of Calgary’s forwards early in the season were clearly visible: Mark Giordano and TJ Brodie – both defencemen – were the ones generating much of the team’s scoring. So poor was the team’s forward production, in fact, that Giordano and Brodie were one-two in team scoring for much of the early part of the season. Just past the …

Next week could decide Calgary Flames’ playoff fate

What slim hope the Calgary Flames have of making the playoffs in 2014-15 could rest almost solely on their current five-game road trip against some tough opponents. Having already faced the Vancouver Canucks, the Flames will now take on the Arizona Coyotes, San Jose Sharks, Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks – all on the road. The structure of this …

Johnny Hockey’s hot streak putting him in ROY conversation

Call him Johnny Gaudreau. Call him Johnny Hockey. Call him…Rookie of the Year? Some inspired play of late has basically erased the terrible start Gaudreau had this season and vaulted him into the discussion for the award. Of course, that hasn’t been for a lack of effort by Swedish sensation Filip Forsberg of the Nashville Predators who was by and …

Calgary Flames finally finish floundering…for now

It’s a connection that’s almost impossible not to make on a Brian Burke-led team: it involves losing, collapsing and an 18-wheeler (and it helps to have a bad team). What the Flames went through – an eight game losing streak – can’t quite be considered a full-on collapse since it happened in December, but the 18-wheeler Burke referred to in …
