Snapshots: Good flow Gaudreau ready for playoff challenge

Johnny Gaudreau arrived at Rogers Place in flip flops, a protective mask, and his unruly dark curls cascading around his face. Unruly being the operative word. “No barbershops in the bubble,” said the 26-year-old who was spotted earlier in the week on the NHL’s Zoom calls, wearing a bun in his hair (although he wasn’t […]

It seems almost impossible to me that a fan base can be so divided over what could be and should be a generational talent. There is no more polarizing figure on the Calgary Flames than Johnny Gaudreau. It seems if you are a Flames fan you either love him or you hate him and that’s just a ridiculous as it reads. Has Gaudreau been perfect as a Flames player? Of course not. During the Flames last two playoff runs, especially last year’s dumpster fire as...

Flames GM Treliving responds to rumours, says Gaudreau ‘has never looked better’
