CALGARY FLAMES NEWS AND RUMORS

Episode 138: Do We Buy Or Do We Sell?

Source: Fireside Chat
Date: 2017-01-19

Six weeks from the 2017 NHL Trade Deadline, we look ahead to if we think the Flames will be buyers or sellers at the deadline - and what they have for sale, and need to buy. Dan and Matt talk about the Flames young players and where they fit into the lineup going forward. Will Monahan and Gaudreau get paired up again? Does Matthew Tkachuk stay with Frolik and Backlund next year? Where does that leave Sam Bennett? And we look ahead at the next week of Flames action, and what we can expect for the rest of January.

Flames fourth-liners dealing with pair of frustrating no-goals

Date: 2017-01-18

The red light goes on. The celebration erupts. Then, the proverbial challenge flag is thrown. And, after a few minutes of deliberation between the referees, linesman, and the National Hockey League command centre in Toronto, the goal is waved off. It might not be a big deal for a NHL player who scores over 20 goals a season but for a guy who has scored only three goals — in his entire NHL career — it stings. “To be completely honest, those suck,” admitted Calgary Flames forward Freddie Hamilton, who went through the roller coaster of emotions on Tuesday night. “Because you think you score and everyone’s all happy and then you get it taken away. You’d almost rather it get called

Flames 5, Panthers 2 post-game embers: Could've been 7-2

Date: 2017-01-18

Sergei Belski/USA TODAY SportsGood news! The Calgary Flames now have a goal differential of -3. That's fifth in the Pacific, and eighth in the West - which is certainly much better than when they were near last.Unfortunate news! They still haven't had a positive goal differential all season. But their latest two games have left a lot to like, and against the Panthers, the dam broke and the goals finally came back.If they can keep this up, they'll get there. There's reason to believe in them. Corsi% last ten games, Calgary's over 54%. #allin— Travis Yost (@travisyost) January 18, 2017

Short-Term Improvements for the Calgary Flames #1 RW Spot

Date: 2017-01-18

Six possible short-term solutions for the team As we close in on the 50 game mark of the 2016-17 season, it has become apparent that the Flames are exactly who we thought they were. A playoff bubble team. At times so far this year we’ve seen a Flames team that looked like a last place squad, and other times where they looked like one of the league’s best. Such is the fate of a middling team. Barring any major winning or losing streaks, the Flames will be battling for a wild card spot and will need to play every night as if it was a Game 7 if they want to be in the big dance come April. It’s become clear though that the Flames have some holes, and now we look at some of the way

Playoff teams avoid skids. Three, four and five game losing streaks can take the wind out of what looks like a good season, rendering a good stretch balanced out with other teams earning points and taking away playoff spots.

Eric Francis: Backlund back at it after mini 'slump'

Date: 2017-01-18

As surprising as it was for Mikael Backlund to cap off a stellar first half as the Flames’ leading scorer, no one in Calgary expects he’ll end the season that way. Sure would be one heck of a bonus though. Logic suggests Johnny Gaudreau or Sean Monahan will eventually find their stride on a more regular basis to get back to doing what they are paid so handsomely to do. Ironically, Backlund’s dominance as centre of the team’s top line should make it easier for the two snipers to get back on track as the 3M Line is now starting to draw the opposition’s top checking units. Yet, there was ol’ Backs breaking a 2-2 game wide open midway through Tuesday’s visit by Florida with a pair
