Flames Should Re-Sign Versteeg

The Calgary Flames are in a situation where the core of their team is young, however they do still rely on veteran leaders in every position. One of these veterans is Kris Versteeg. Versteeg has bounced around the NHL, having played for seven different teams since 2011. Although Versteeg is aging, he’s been a great fit […]

They have Sam Bennett, who could be really good but has struggled throughout the season. They have a couple veterans who can be shuffled around the top-9, the versatile bargain Kris Versteeg and Troy “full of leadership but not that great at other things” Brouwer. Then there is a...

Time to Say Thanks for Matthew Tkachuk... Again

The rookie that plays a veteran’s role and continues to dazzle As the Flames hit their mandated five day break, they’re in the mix for a playoff spot, and it looks to be a battle that will wage on until the last night of the season. It’s a big improvement from last season where the Flames were nine points out the playoffs at this point in the year, and were all but mathematically done. Some of that improvement you can put on other new acquisitions such as the goaltenders, Troy Brouwer, or Kris Versteeg, but you can see the main difference between this year and last when the 3M line...
