Game Preview: Flames vs Dallas Stars

The Flames will host the Dallas Stars for the first and only time this season as they hope to get things on track after a less than stellar first ten games of the season. The Stars come into the Saddledome tonight, on the backend of a back-to-back after beating the Oilers 4-1 last night in Edmonton.

Flames Fans: Smarten Up

You know what really grinds my gears?

Supposed fans that are dumber than this guy right here!

It's time for a rant.

What's wrong with the Calgary Flames?

9 games into the season, and the Calgary Flames remain the NHL’s greatest enigma. Nobody can seem to figure them out – as it always has, inconsistency continues to plague this team, so whats going on?

Flames Win but lose Kipper

The Flames dominated the Detroit Red Wings tonight beating them 4-1.

However, the story tonight was the loss of Miikka Kiprusoff after the second period as Leland Irving came on in relief.

How severe is the injury? And will the Flames be ok without him? I tend to think they will be...

Flames Lose in Dramatic Fashion

The Calgary Flames wasted an incredible effort last night and lost a heartbreaker of a hockey game to the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout.

The team and their fans deserved a much better fate...

But this is what happens when you leave Marian Hossa wide open in the slot with two seconds left.

Don't Hit the Panic Button yet..

Fans and the like tend to want to push the panic button as soon as their team loses a couple in a row.
in this shortened season, there are those who are even quicker to jump on that magic button.

I say...Don't Panic...not yet...

Should the Islanders Trade for Jarome Iginla?

With the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs coming to a close in the next month, free agency and trade rumors will take on a life of their own as teams will try to improve through the two aforementioned avenues. After staying relatively quiet in the free agent market the last couple of years, the New York Islanders could use the addition of a player via a trade. (VancityAllie/Flickr)

One of those players could be Jarome Iginla, and the Islanders should consider targeting the right winger for a number of reasons.

Since Iginla's contract will expire once the 2012-2013 season is completed, the move could backfire on the Isles if the winger chooses to pursue free agency during the 2013 off-season. However, a deal to get Iginla could drastically improve the Islanders' offense and give the team a bit more than a bonafide scoring threat and rugged veteran. Acquiring Iginla could show other free agents that the Islanders are serious about taking their rebuild to another level and are trying to surround John Tavares with some established talent.

In Sutter we Trust

Darryl Sutter could lead the LA Kings to the Cup this season.

So what do Calgary Flames fans think of it given that he dug the Flames into their current hole?

Well, Darryl was always a good coach...it was the GM thing that he sucked at.

Brent Sutter and Flames part ways

Brent Sutter and the Calgary Flames parted ways today after three years of time together.

Dave Lowry was also asked not to come back.

Who's next in line to take the head coaching position?

It's anyone's guess.
