Expect a Quiet Trade Deadline in Calgary

Considering their rough start to the season, it’s a bit shocking that the Calgary Flames approach the National Hockey League’s trade deadline in the midst of a playoff push. Despite winning just five of their first 16 games and sitting near the conference’s basement in mid-November, the Flames have buckled down and improved. As a result, they may be in a position to strategically...

Let's Make a Deal: What Fate Lies Behind Doors 1, 2 and 3 for the Kings, Preds and Flames

The race to make the playoffs in the Western Conference is playing out like a wacky episode of the old television game show Let's Make a Deal.If you're too young to recall, that's too bad, because it was entertaining, I'm thinking in particular of the 1970s version with Winnipeg native Monty Hall as host.

Calgary Flames: Dennis Wideman needs to go

Few things went wrong in the Calgary Flames’ win over Minnesota on Wednesday, but the stress level went way up at the beginning of the eastern road. It is not hard to see the issue with the Flames, however. They have a defenseman, Dennis Wideman, who is playing his way off the roster very quickly. Statistically, he has not looked terrible.

Calgary Flames: All-Star Break Update

The Calgary Flames had all the intentions in the world to return to the postseason after an underwhelming 2015-2016.

Calgary Flames: The uninspiring play

Watching the Calgary Flames over the past week has been painful. It was just a week ago that the Flames had a decent margin in the wild card race, but they are likely to be on the outside looking in during the All-Star Break, an anticipation that has likely gotten into the players’ heads. Since Jan. 13, the Flames have lost six of seven. That is not unheard of, especially since...
