Carrick or Polak More Deserving of Playoff Ice Time?
It’s no secret the Toronto Maple Leafs have a weak right side of their defence core. This has been the case for a while but because no moves were made in the offseason or at the deadline, we’re stuck with four right defenders who would probably all be on the third pairing on most good […]

Maple Leafs Early Season Storylines
We’re only five games into the regular season but fans still have a lot of thoughts about the Toronto Maple Leafs. The team is off to a 4-1-0 start and is poised to be one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference this season. But is the hot start just that, or is it a […]
What Might a James van Riemsdyk Contract Look Like?
It’s been the biggest question surrounding the Toronto Maple Leafs for months now — what’s going to happen with James van Riemsdyk? Does Toronto trade him? Do they try to re-sign him? It’s really up in the air at this point. The Leafs have an absolute logjam of forwards and right now there’s more players […]
Leafs Are Ready to Contend
Heading into last season, when Leafs fans were talking online about Toronto making the playoffs, I paid no attention to it. How was a team that finished dead last in the league just a year prior supposed to think that the playoffs were anywhere close to within reach? Then the season started and the Leafs […]
Who Could the Flames Lose to Vegas?
The NHL Expansion Draft is under two months away and soon enough the thousands of mock expansion drafts will be nothing more than a shell of how the actual expansion draft shakes out. Unlike the case for many teams around the league, the Calgary Flames’ management group isn’t really in a position where they need to sweat […]
Flames: Who Delivered and Who Disappointed?
After a string of wins which left fans optimistic heading into the first round of the playoffs against Anaheim, the Calgary Flames were the first team to be eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs. There were high hopes that the team could battle and really put up a fight against the Ducks, but the Flames […]
Flames Should Re-sign Stone
Since joining the Calgary Flames, Michael Stone has been a big part of the team’s hot play. Stone has been a good fit on Calgary’s second defence pair, but as the days go by, Stone creeps closer to becoming a free agent. So with contracts expiring at the end of the season and positions vacant, the […]
Flames Possible Playoff Opponents
Though the Calgary Flames have yet to clinch a playoff spot, it sure looks like it’s a matter of time. The Los Angeles Kings sit 11 points back of the Flames and at this point it would take a collapse for Calgary to miss the postseason. So let’s direct our focus to who the Flames […]
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 […]
Brouwer’s Contract Will Hurt Flames
The Calgary Flames added many pieces to their roster in the 2016 offseason, but none with a contract the size of Troy Brouwer’s. His deal in Calgary was met with mixed reactions, but now with Brouwer struggling, all the potential downsides to the signing are becoming a reality. With the Flames made up of many […]
Are The Flames a Playoff Team?
The Calgary Flames have been all over the Western Conference standings this season. Calgary got off to a rough start and was counted out pretty early from being a playoff contender, sitting among the league’s worst teams at the beginning of the year. But after a string of wins to start off December, the Flames find […]
5 Flames Who Have Disappointed
It’s common to see a top star hit a slump. What’s uncommon is nearly every key player on a team hitting a slump at the same time. However, if you’re able to call Calgary’s play so far this year a “slump,” that is exactly what’s happening. The Flames have disappointed as a group altogether, and as […]
Flames Shouldn’t Trade Hamilton
Lately it seems like the NHL’s rumour mill has been spinning solely on Dougie Hamilton trade talk. With Calgary’s season going downhill and contenders around the league starting to emerge, teams may be looking to see what it’ll take to bring in Dougie Hamilton. Earlier this month, Nick Kypreos reported that both the Arizona Coyotes and […]
Brian Elliott Is Perfect Fit for Flames
At the 2016 NHL draft, two inevitable courses collided. With St. Louis putting their future in Jake Allen, and the Flames in one of the worst goaltending states the league has seen in a while, Brian Elliott ended up in Calgary. Now whether this is just a short-term fix for the Flames or Elliott re-signs and becomes […]
Should Calgary Trade For Marc-Andre Fleury?
Three months ago, Marc-Andre Fleury was at the top of his game in Pittsburgh, and was one of the main reasons the Penguins were even in playoff contention. Throughout 58 regular games, Fleury had the lowest GAA of his career, and had tied his lowest save percentage. Skip ahead and for the first time since […]
5 Players Calgary Should Select 6th Overall
Last time the Calgary Flames landed the sixth overall draft pick, they walked away with their soon-to-be first line centre, Sean Monahan. The Flames can only hope to repeat their draft success, and with such a talented class, their only trouble should be deciding who fits into the system. Here are five top draft prosects who could be […]
How Much Are Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan Worth?
Summer’s instalment of free agency is going to be key for many teams, especially the Calgary Flames. Not only will Calgary be looking to bolster their roster with new signings, but they’ll also need to negotiate contracts with arguably their two most important forwards, Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan. Gaudreau and Monahan will both enter […]
4 Goalies Who Could Become Calgary’s Starter
It’s no secret that one of Calgary’s main problems this season was their goaltending. Between Karri Ramo, Joni Ortio, Niklas Backstrom, and Jonas Hiller (dare I say his name), the Flames spent over $12 million for the most goals against in the NHL. But summer is fast approaching, and with it comes free agency, where […]
4 Flames Prospects Who Should Be NHL Bound
After a disappointing season in Calgary, there’s no doubt there’s going to be changes made by the Flames for the start of 2016-2017. Coming off of an unexpected playoff run in 2015, the Flames were poised to be a powerhouse in the Western Conference this year, but instead, fell flat on their face. Nevertheless, Calgary has a […]
A Look at the Jarome Iginla Trade, Three Years Later
When the NHL playoffs came around three years ago, it marked the first time that Jarome Iginla would be entering the post-season without a Flames logo on his chest. On March 27, 2013, the long-time Calgary captain was dealt to Pittsburgh, as part of the Flames’ initial rebuild. In return for Iginla, Calgary picked up prospects […]
