Not many, if any, predicted Mark Jankowski would be the newest Flames prospect but after trading down from 14 to 21 in Friday nights first round, Jay Feaster and co. had their mind set and made the pick, going off the board. It was a bold move, one that has many wondering if it was best for the Flames organization.
After a second interview and a thanks but no thanks to the Montreal Canadiens, the Flames officially announced the hiring of Bob Hartley as their new head coach and 15th head coach in Franchise history.
On the eve of the Stanley Cup Finals where Flames fans will watch former General Manager and Coach Darryl Sutter compete for a Stanley Cup, many remember the days when the motto around Calgary was ‘In Sutter We Trust’. With the the Flames organization stuck in mediocrity, Jay Feaster will make his choice of who will be the next head coach behind the Flames bench and who fans can say they trust. Here are three possible candidates.
Words can't describe how painful that was to watch. From a 2-0 lead and a 21-4 shot advantage in the first 30 minutes, to a 3-2 SO loss to the 27th place Minnesota Wild is completely embarrassing. The whole Flames organization better take a deep look in the mirror and make some tough decisions.
Ring... Ring... Pick up Jay Feaster, the Fat Lady is calling, your team just shot themselves in the foot... again.
