30 Things You Didn’t Know (Or Maybe Forgot) about Flames’ Stanley Cup win in 1989

May 25, 1989, was the unforgettable night. It has been three decades since the Calgary Flames sipped from the Stanley Cup, since the skating stars and their loved ones celebrated in the cramped quarters of the visitors’ room at the Montreal Forum while fans back home partied along Electric Avenue. To mark the 30th anniversary, here […]

How much can the Calgary Flames afford to pay Tkachuk?

How much can the Calgary Flames afford to pay Tkachuk?

Matthew Tkachuk is valuable. He’s a big-game player who possess a bevy of intangibles and one of the league’s preeminent agitators. But does all that value add up to more than what the Flames will be able to pay? The post NHL appeared first on Sportsnet.ca.

Calgary Flames: Why Mark Giordano is the clear choice for Norris Trophy

Mark Giordano is a Norris Trophy finalist at the young age of 35 years old. Giordano is coming off of the best season of his career, becoming the Calgary Flames first finalist since Dion Phaneuf back in 2008. So, how does he stack up against the other finalists? Mark Giordano is seeking to become the […] Calgary Flames: Why Mark Giordano is the clear choice for Norris Trophy - Puck Prose - Puck Prose - NHL

Flames Need More Muscle to Be Cup Contenders

Is it an exaggeration to say that the Calgary Flames got absolutely destroyed in Round 1 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs? I don’t think so, and I doubt anyone who witnessed that mid-April fiasco would find reason to feel differently (though respectfully, I would love to hear an opposing angle). High off of a […] The post Flames Need More Muscle to Be Cup Contenders appeared first on The Hockey Writers.
2018-19 Player Report Card: Mark Giordano

2018-19 Player Report Card: Mark Giordano

The Captain had a pretty OK season. Mark Giordano: Defence Regular Season: 78 GP, 17 G, 57 A, 74 Pts, 69 PIM, +39, 5.0 CFRel% Playoffs: 5 GP, 0 G, 2 A, 2 Pts, 0 PIM Individual Grades MarkParkinson14= (A+) Anything less than an A+ would be an insult to the Flames Captain. Giordano had the season of his life, setting career highs in points (74), assists (57), +/- (39) and short handed goals (4). He was also the consummate leader for this team, something that he has been dogged by occasionally in the past. He held his team to a very high standard and played to that same standard as well....
2018-19 Player Report Card: T.J. Brodie

2018-19 Player Report Card: T.J. Brodie

Another year and more questions regarding T.J. Brodie. T.J. Brodie: Defence Regular Season: 79 GP, 9 G, 25 A, 34 Pts, 24 PIM, +29, 3.3 CFRel% Playoffs: 5 GP, 2 G, 0 A, 2 Pts, 6 PIM, -1 Individual Grades MarkParkinson14= (C) This was certainly a tale of two seasons for T.J. Brodie. Brodie started like a house of fire and his pairing with Mark Giordano was one of the best in the NHL for a good chunk of the season. But as 2018-19 started to wear on, the old Brodie from last season started to show. His offense dried up and he started to turn the puck over as well. He finished the year with...

Calgary Flames At The IIHF World Championships Update #2

Johnny Gaudreau is out with an injury, but there’s another Flames player lightning it up at the tournament. 2019 IIHF World Championships The IIHF WC’s are rolling right along with the quarterfinals coming up on May 23rd. Calgary has five players involved in the games, with three of those being on Team USA. Johnny Gaudreau, Noah Hanifin and Derek Ryan are in third place in Group A behind Finland and Canada. While Ryan and Hanifin have found success over seas, Johnny Gaudreau is listed as day-to-day with an injury he sustained in a 6-3 victory over Great Britain. For a look at someone...
2018-19 Player Report Card: Dalton Prout

2018-19 Player Report Card: Dalton Prout

Prout didn’t make much of a positive or negative impact this season. Dalton Prout: Defence Regular Season: 20 GP, 1 G, 1 A, 2 Pts, 8 PIM, +1, -1.5 CFRel% Playoffs: 0 GP, 0 G, 0 A, 0 Pts, 0 PIM MarkParkinson14= (C) I gave Prout a “C” because I don’t think he did anything spectacular in his 20 games, but he wasn’t a total nightmare either. He was steady when the Flames needed him to slot into the lineup, though I wish he played a more physical role when he was out there. The role of the enforcer is clearly a thing of the past, but Prout was supposed to bring a little bit of that...
Friday Fan Poll: What Should Calgary Do with their 2019 1st Round Pick?

Friday Fan Poll: What Should Calgary Do with their 2019 1st Round Pick?

Will the Flames end up selecting at 26? The Calgary Flames will be selecting 26th overall at this year’s NHL entry draft in Vancouver. Earlier this week we previewed five potential selections with that pick. Now it’s time to analyze the other options for what to do with that pick. A) Trade Down Calgary will once again be entering the draft holding only a few picks. The Flames currently hold their first, their third, the Islanders fourth, their fifth, and the Hurricanes seventh. There is little differential value between late first round picks and second round picks, so perhaps Calgary...
2018-19 Player Report Card: Noah Hanifin

2018-19 Player Report Card: Noah Hanifin

One of the summer’s big acquisitions created a strong second pairing Noah Hanifin: Defence Regular Season: 80 GP, 5 G, 28 A, 33 Pts, 12 PIM, +18, -1.8 CFRel% Playoffs: 5 GP, 0 G, 1 A, 1 Pts, 4 PIM, -3 Individual Grades MarkParkinson14= (B) Hanifin had a very solid season in his first year with the Flames. He played the second most games of his career (80), had a career low PIM (12), set a career high in assists and points (28 & 33) and for the first time in his career he was on the plus side of the ledger at year’s end. Hanifin solidified the Flames second defence pairing and should...

Five Possible Selections for the Flames at #26

Five Possible Selections for the Flames at #26

Decisions, decisions, decisions After taking most of last year’s draft off following the Travis Hamonic trade, the Calgary Flames will be entering this year’s draft with a first round pick. After winning the Pacific Division and finishing 2nd overall in the regular season (let’s just pretend the playoffs didn’t happen), the Flames will be picking at #26 in Vancouver. It’s an interesting and somewhat new position for the Flames after spending much of the last decade drafting early in the first round. Of course they selected Juuso Valimaki at 16th in 2017, but being 10 picks...

Flames sign KHL all-star Yelesin

Alexander Yelesin racked up 188 hits this past season, the second-highest total in the Kontinental Hockey League. The Calgary Flames are now hoping the 23-year-old defenceman from Russia will eventually be a hit at the Saddledome. The Flames confirmed Friday that they’ve signed Yelesin to a two year, entry-level pact, an addition that bench boss […]

2018-19 Player Report Card: Michael Frolik

2018-19 Player Report Card: Michael Frolik

Frolik may have played his last game for Calgary Michael Frolik: Forward Regular Season: 65 GP, 16 G, 18 A, 34 Pts, 26 PIM, +24 Playoffs: 5 GP, 0 G, 0 A, 0 Pts, 2 PIM Individual Grades MGMacGillivray = (C) Points-wise Frolik had one of the better years of his career, scoring on a pace that would’ve set a career high in goals and close to a career high in points had he played the full 82 games. However he lacked the ability to solidify his spot on the 3M line for long stretches this season and really started to look expendable as the season carried on. The whole sideshow with his agent...
