Ramo to start the season for the Flames

05 Oct

Bob Hartley Barak Obama Poster HOPERamo to start on Wednesday

The Calgary Flames have chosen Karri Ramo to start their opening game Wednesday against the Vancouver Canucks. I guess I’m surprised, but not shocked. I figured it would be Hiller and Ortio with Ramo watching from the press box, but instead it’s Ramo and Hiller with Ortio watching. I’m going to have to defer to Harley on this decision, as he knows a little more about coaching than I do.

Ramo showed during the preseason that he’s ready for the season, and I think that Hiller is a little more tradeable than Ramo is which may have had an unmentioned effect on this decision. I think it’s safe to say we’ll see the Flames rotate starting goalies for the first few games until someone gets hot.

Place your bets

Now I usually don’t pay any attention to odds, but has your Calgary Flames at 28-to-1 favourites to win Lord Stanley’s mug. That’s pretty exciting, especially since we’ve been in the 50-to-100 range the past couple years. Furthermore, (based on their odds) here is where Bodog is ranking the 2015/16 Western Conference teams.

    1. Chicago Blackhawks
    2. Los Angeles Kings
    3. Anaheim Ducks
    4. St. Louis Blues
    5. Nashville Predators
    6. Minnesota Wild
    7. Winnipeg Jets
    8. Calgary Flames
    9. San Jose Sharks
    10. Edmonton Oilers
    11. Dallas Stars
    12. Colorado Avalanche
    13. Vancouver Canucks
    14. Arizona Coyotes


I think they have L.A. way too high, as well as Minnesota and Edmonton. I think San Jose and Dallas should be higher. I think 8th place would suit the Flames just fine.

Are you ready?

I certainly am, even though that was a shorter-than-usual summer it felt like a lifetime. Partly because I’ve finally updated my Jarome Iginla jersey. It took a few years to get over that but I’m welcoming a new style of hockey player to Cow Town.

The Johnny Hockey Jersey

The Johnny Hockey Jersey

Since we’re on random topics, I thought this quote from GM Brad Treliving was pretty cool… Did you have any idea of what to expect from the fans during the playoffs last year?

Brad Treliving: No. No. No I didn’t. I watched TV years ago and you’d see games here but to live it – not just at the arena but around the city – it was excellent. We’ve got the best fans in hockey and it showed. What a great environment to play in. That’s what makes it fun and that’s why we want to get back there. We want to get this city juiced up again. It was a lot of fun.

Calgary Flames drop their last two preseason games against the Jets

04 Oct

Winnipeg Jets 3, Calgary Flames 1

I don’t have must to report on this particular game, I didn’t listen to it on the radio because I figured I was recording the game on TSN. Turns out it was blacked out in Calgary. Based on what I read, the Flames were simply out-played by a more veteran Winnipeg lineup. And Ortio was okay, but not great.

Winnipeg Jets 3, Calgary Flames 2

Calgary iced their opening night roster on Saturday yet it wasn’t enough.

The Flames came out flying in the first period, after giving up the first 2 shots they out-shot their opponent 15-3 through the first 20 minutes. However there were no goals to show for their effort.

After the Jets scored in the second the boys from Winterpeg seemed to gain a lot of momentum and really took over the game. That led to another goal in the second and it was looking pretty bleak until Bouma got a dirty goal with about 13 minutes remaining in the game. I’m fairly certain the puck should have been blown dead before he whacked it in.

The Flames pulled Ramo with 90 seconds to go, and the Jets were able to get an empty-netter. That goal ended up being the winner when David Jones scored with 16 seconds left in the game. Just enough to make it interesting, but still a long-shot. That long-shot didn’t lead to anything.

Jiri Hudler was hurt in the first, but Hartley says it is pretty minor and will be back for opening night.

What did preseason tell us?

The Flames came out of the preseason 4-4. They lost the two split-squad games to Edmonton and the home-and-home series to Winnipeg. Other than that they played pretty well.

They still have three goalies, it looks like all three will remain with the club until someone gets hurt – here or elsewhere that could open up a trade. Brett Kulak was the real story out of camp as injuries to Brodie and (still) Smid opened up a roster spot for a youngster. I guess Wilson is still on the books, but after the last game of the preseason I think it’s safe to say that Kulak is your #6 guy.

The last cuts were Shore, Hathaway, Sieloff, Wotherspoon, Nakladal and Morrison. They were all assigned to the Stockton Heat after the first Winnipeg game. That leaves us with an NHL-ready line-up, check it out on the Flames current line combinations page.


Calgary Flames 2, Colorado Avalanche 0

30 Sep

aka Jiri Hudler 2, Karri Ramo / Jonas Hiller shutout

It started when Hudler scored 24 seconds into the game. Now I didn’t see it, but based on the radio play-by-play it must have been pretty. Hudler then added another early in the second and that was all the Flames would need.

An even first period and a boring third sandwiched a second dominated by the Flames. They drew a lot of penalties, and the Flames’ powerplay so far — yes it is preseason — is clicking. Having two powerplay units is something we haven’t had for a long time. When you combine that with the goaltending Calgary is getting from the three NHL goalies they’ve somehow ended up with I’m actually fairly optimistic for the year. And that’s new for me.

On a technical note, I tried to stream the second period but the feed kept freezing up on me. Plus since they were streaming from the Saddledome in real-time and using the audio feed from the Fan960, they were not synced. If anyone from the Flames organization is reading this right now, delay the video feed by one second. If you ever stream games that aren’t televised that is.

Jiri Hudler, serious face

How can you not love this guy?


Calgary Flames training camp roster down to 32 after cuts

29 Sep

Cuts are upon us, and as Hartley alluded to last week there have been a lot of them. Twenty-one players have been assigned to the Stockton Heat over the past couple days:

Really no surprises here. Although I think that Poirier should have been kept over Garnet Hathaway. I also thought Rasmus Andersson had a great camp, but was returned to the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League. At 18 years old, he’ll still have plenty more chances to make this team.

Thirty-two players remain at camp: three goalies, 11 defencemen, and 18 forwards – a list of the all players is below. With T.J. Brodie and Ladislav Smid on the injured reserve, the Flames still have to cut seven players. Wilson is still with the team on a professional tryout, but Douglas Murray was released from his professional tryout contract earlier in the week.

So which D will be here on opening night?

Okay, Flames fans. Pick two of the following:

  • Jakub Nakladal — Czech newcomer, 27 and experienced, suffered a minor undisclosed upper-body injury, which left him skating in a yellow caution jersey on the weekend
  • Brett Kulak — 2012 fourth-rounder, 21, earned a shift in overtime at Rogers Arena and he helped set up Josh Jooris’s golden goal
  • Tyler Wotherspoon — 2011 second-rounder, 22, threw a plus-three rating on the board Saturday
  • Ryan Wilson — 28-year-old, here on a professional tryout offer, skated in only three contests last winter because of shoulder surgery

I’m going to say it’s Wotherspoon and Wilson, as the 6th and 7th guys. Probably trading games until Nakladal is ready to go. After that Brodie will be back and Wotherspoon will become our seventh defencemen.

*UPDATE* Jakub Nakladal says he’s good to go now, and will play against the Avs on Tuesday.

Calgary Flames 4, Vancouver Canucks 3 (OT)

29 Sep

Calgary rooks defeat Vancouver vets

Calgary sent all the rookies to Vancouver on Saturday, after beating the Canucks handily with an NHL-veteran team at the Saddledome on Friday. The thought was that Calgary would load-up their line-up Friday in front of their fans, and Vancouver would load-up their line-up Saturday in front of theirs. Everything went according to plan for the Flames on Friday, winning 4-1 at home. Not so much for the Canucks on Saturday, who lost 4-3 in 3-on-3 OT.

Calgary’s top line was Matt Stajan, Brendan Bollig and Blair Jones – typically the fourth line. Colbourne, Raymond and Jooris also played, but it was all newbies after that.


  1. Brandon Bollig-Matt Stajan-David Jones
  2. Mason Raymond-Joe Colborne-Emile Poirier
  3. Josh Jooris-Markus Granlund-Garnet Hathaway
  4. Morgan Klimchuk-Turner Elson-Blair Riley
  1. Ryan Wilson-Rasmus Andersson
  2. Oliver Kylington-Brett Kulak
  3. Tyler Wotherspoon-Kenney Morrison


Worth mentioning

Flames centre Matt Stajan. I give Stajan a lot of grief – mainly because he plays hockey like I do… not very well. But Matt had an excellent night in Vancouver, assisting on both of Bollig’s markers and then setting-up Josh Jooris for the winner after just 97 seconds of three-on-three overtime action.

Flames netminder Karri Ramo. Ramo had 40 saves in Vancouver, including a sprawling stop on Horvat on a breakaway in overtime. If it wasn’t for Ramo, this game would have gotten ugly quickly.


Calgary Flames 4, Vancouver Canucks 1

25 Sep

The Flames didn’t come out all too hot, but after the first 10 minutes of the game Calgary really took over.

So who was noticeable? Mostly the usual suspects, Monahan, Gaudreau, Ferland, Hamilton, Giordano, Bennett. But also I thought Patrick Sieloff had himself a whale of a game.

Patrick Seiloff

He’s American, but we’ll still take him.

First look at 3-on-3 overtime

Although it’s not the same as 5-on-5, or even 4-on-4, it’s still a lot better than the shootout. So a tentative thumbs up… for now.

First look at the Saddledome chicken wrap

As you probably know, the food offered at the Saddledome is downright awful. The exceptions are the pocket dogs — because hot dogs are timeless — and The Rotisserie up on the third level. Well new this year is The Rotisserie’s chicken wrap. I had the honour of eating the very first one ever made, and it was a truly average wrap. Which makes it the best food served at the ‘Dome!


Flame beat Avalanche 1-0, Ortio with the shutout and Brodie injury update

25 Sep

Flames 1, Avalanche 0

The Flames defeated the Avs in preseason play for three reasons. Josh Jooris returned after a long absense to score the games only goal, Calgary’s young defence (all rookies + Ryan Wilson) and Joni Ortio had a 35-save shutout.

Ortio is going to make the goaltending situation intersting, as Calgary has three goalies on one-way contracts. I think that we’re going to see Hiller and Ortio to start the season, trading starts, until one gets hurt or starts to slip. If Ortio can get 30 games this season, I think everyone will be pleased.

T.J. Brodie

Brodie’s broken hand will have him out for 3-6 weeks, if the injury is what the Flames suspect. Although he hasn’t broken a bone before and because of that no one knows how long it’ll take to heal. We’ll have a better sence by the middle of next week.

Cuts at camp

There have been no cuts thus far, Calgary has an amazing 53 players still on the roster. Although Bob Hartley has stated that after three games in three nights, the cuts will be coming in bunches on Monday.

I’m looking forward to tonights game against Vancouver, because of last year’s playoffs the rivarly is back!


Flames lose two to the Oilers in pre-season split-squad games

22 Sep

And just like that, the Calgary Flames slip to 0-2 in the pre-season.

I think that everyone agrees that pre-season records mean very little. I mean you can’t even find stats on players at this time of year. That said, it’s fun to have hockey back and to get a bit of a glipse into what the future looks like for the Flaming ‘C.’

Calgary 2 at Edmonton 4

Calgary was leading this game 2-1 heading into the third period, but gave up three unanswered goals in the final frame to drop the first game of the pre-season. Oliver Kylington and centre Markus Granlund scored for Calgary, while Connor McDavid has two assists in the Oiler win. Because I wasn’t there to witness the game, most of what I’m going from is the NHL’s recap of the game.

Edmonton 3 and Calgary 1

The Flames were tied at the second intermission, but like the game three hours north they gave up a couple late goals to drop the second game of the night. In Calgary, the Flames iced a seasoned NHL team, which included arguably the best starting line-up in the NHL: Hudler – Monahan – Gaudreau and Brodie – Girodano. In addition to these five, Hiller started in net (replaced later by Ortio) as well as Hamilton, Frolik, Stajan, Raymond, Ferland and Bennett all played.

So who stood out, you ask?

The top line of Monahan, Gaudreau and Hudler looked to be nearly game-ready, as you would expect. Giordano looked like he hadn’t missed a step, there was one shift where he blocked two shots within seconds of each other earning him a standing ovation — in a pre-season game no less! Frolik was all over the place, scoring a goal, drawing a penalty shot and recording six shots. Hamilton started out slow taking a couple penalties early on, but seemed to find his confidence in the later stages of the game. Bennett looked like he belongs in the NHL, and I think it’s pretty safe to say that he will be in the line-up Oct 7.

Ferland picked up where he left off in last-year’s playoffs, hitting guys left and right and chipping in with a shot or two. I also thought Poirier looked like he played quite strong and could have a shot at the team, but I’ve heard he’s been inconsistent throughout camp.

On the flip side, Hunter Smith (who?) was noticeable in that he gave up the puck repeatedly in his own end. For such a big guy he was soft on the puck all night, and unceremoniously left the game after being on the losing end of a fight with Darnell Nurse. Now at 6’ 4” and 205lbs Nurse is a big guy, but Smith is 6’ 7” and 208lbs. He’s a big dude. Sadly, Tyler Wotherspoon was unnoticeable. Some may argue that a stay-at-home defenseman should be, but it’s training camp and he’s going to need to show much more if he wants to become the Flames 7th d-man.

I need more time to watch guys like Kulak and Nakladal. At times I was impressed with what they showed, but I didn’t get to see enough of either of them in order to share a reasonable opinion.

Next up, the Colorado Avalanche

The game on Thursday is not on television, but you can stream it live on Other than the two pre-season games against the Avs the remaining games are all televised. Is this a great country or what?

Also the first round of cuts should be released shortly, I’ll share those as soon as they are released. And if Hunter Smith isn’t on the list, then apparently one pre-season game isn’t enough to accurately judge a player.

Calgary Flames Training Camp (2015 edition)

15 Sep

I recommend that before you read though this, you have a look at the Calgary Flames off-season summary post to get up to speed on what’s happened over the summer.

As far as training camp goes, I’m going to post links out to (what I think) is useful information collected from all corners of the web. In addition to that, I’ll post after each pre-season game to fill you in on what I saw in addition to what the media, coaching staff and other bloggers saw as well. So, first up is…

The Young Stars tournament in Penticton

The Flames finished the Penticton Young Stars Classic tournament with a 1-1-1 record. Recaps of all three games are here:

The roster breakdown is below, for more thoughts check out

Forwards (17) – Kenny Agostino, Bill Arnold, Tyson Baillie, Sam Bennett, Taylor Burke, Austin Carroll, Pavel Karnaukhov, Morgan Klimchuk, Andrew Mangiapane, Mason Marchment, Louick Marcotte, Ryan Lamberg, Emile Poirier, Julien Proulx, Hunter Smith, Tomas Soustal, Bryce Van Brabant.

Defensemen (11) – Oliver Kylington, Rasmus Andersson, Patrick Sieloff, Ryan Culkin, Riley Bruce, Jason Bell, Eric Roy, Kenney Morrison, Keegan Kanzig, Brett Kulak, Jason Fram.

Goaltenders (3) – Mason McDonald, Jon Gillies, Nick Schneider.

Training Camp invites

In addition to the roster above, the Flames have extended invites to Ryan Wilson and Douglas Murray. So camp-wise, you have the Young Stars roster above, plus Murray and Wilson, plus the Flames current roster attending 2015 training camp.

Flames prospects

You know Micheal Ferland, Markus Granlund, Tyler Wotherspoon and Sam Bennett. You probably know Morgan Klimchuk, Emile Poirier, Mark Jankowski, Joni Ortio and Jon Gillies. Now after the Young Stars tournament you are aware of Andrew Mangiapane, Bill Arnold and Rasmus Andersson. But where do they all rank according to some blogger (who’s not me)?? Check out Flames From 80 Feet’s ranking of the Calgary Flames top 20 prospects.

Contract signings

Again, check out the Flames off season wrap-up for more information on contracts addressed (except for Michael Ferland’s recent contract deal) during the summer.

New NHL rules

Something that you’ve probably already forgotten about is that the NHL will move to 3-3 overtime this year in order to not have so many shootouts decide games. I’m a big fan of this mostly because it’s more of a team way to decide the fate of the game, shootouts shouldn’t be what awards teams points.

Also what is interesting is that the league is introducing the coach’s challenge, similar to what we see in football.

Calgary Flames off-season wrap-up

05 Sep

If you’re anything like me, you don’t pay attention much to what’s been going on with the Flames over the off-season. I mean, you pay attention to draft day, free agent frenzy, arbitration, and things like that… but not to the day-to-day degree that begins Sep 21 and lasts until (hopefully) springtime.

Here is a wrap-up of what’s happened while you were away.


Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving didn’t take a break at all following the post-season, signing Czech defenceman Jakub Nakladal to an entry-level contract on May 19. The 27-year-old blueliner spent the 2014-15 season with TPS Turku of the SM-Liiga, posting three goals and 15 points in 50 games. He also represented the Czech Republic at the 2015 IIHF World Championships, where he led all Czech defencemen with five assists in 10 games.


Pivot Mikael Backlund, who was drafted by the Flames in the first round of the 2007 NHL Draft, signed a three-year deal with Calgary on June 20. The Swedish forward saw limited action last last season undergoing abdominal surgery. In 52 games he put up 10 goals and 27 points, playing a key role for the Flames in the post-season.

In 298 career games, Backlund has scored 51 goals and amassed 128 points. In 2013-14, he had a career season which saw him net 18 goals and 39 points in 76 games.


The Flames sent shock-waves through the hockey world at the NHL Draft in June with a blockbuster trade with the Boston Bruins. The Flames acquired 6-foot-5 defenceman Dougie Hamilton in exchange for Calgary’s 2015 first round pick (15th overall) and two second round picks (45th overall and 52nd overall – previously acquired from the Washington Capitals).

“I look at our team right now with Giordano, Brodie, Russell, Wideman, Engelland, Smid, and adding Dougie Hamilton to that mix, I like that defence,” Treliving said.

“When we looked at Dougie, this is an age group asset for us. This is a player that fits where we are going in Calgary. This is not a deviation in terms of the young players that we are building around. He adds to it. He’s in that peer group.”

2015 NHL DRAFT – JUNE 27

After trading their first round pick to the Bruins, the Flames were left with picks in the second, fifth, sixth, and seventh rounds of the 2015 NHL Draft. They ended up selecting Rasmus Andersson (defence – 2nd round, 52nd overall), Oliver Kylington (defence – 2nd round, 60th overall), Pavel Karnaukhov (center – 5th round, 136th overall),Andrew Mangiapane (left wing – 6th round, 166th overall), and Riley Bruce (defence – 7th round, 196th overall).


The Flames tendered qualifying offers to 12 restricted free agents in late June: Hamilton, Lance Bouma, Micheal Ferland, Drew Shore, David Wolf, Josh Jooris, Bryce Van Brabant, Kenny Agostino, Paul Byron, Max Reinhart, Bill Arnold, and Turner Elson.


The Flames re-signed associate coach Jacques Cloutier and assistant coaches Martin Gelinas and Jamie Pringle to multi-year contracts. The organization also extended the contract of assistant general manager Craig Conroy.


The Flames locked up Hamilton to a six-year deal to close out the month of June. The 22-year-old was thrilled to get a contract worked out so quickly with his new club.

“Looking at the team, it’s a young team with a lot of great players and I think a great future and a great plan in place,” he said. “I think any situation that has that, it’s going to be exciting to be a part of that. I think that continues on with the fans and the city. I had some experiences there at the World Juniors and had a lot of fun playing there and being there and even just watching the playoffs this year and seeing the fans and the C of Red and all that. I think it obviously shows the fans and fan support in the city. That’s something that is also really exciting.”


The Flames kicked off Canada Day by signing Karri Ramo, who had wrapped up his second season with Calgary this past spring. The 29-year-old went 15-9-3 in the regular season with a 2.60 GAA and a .912 save percentage.

Calgary then went out and signed forward Michael Frolik to a five-year deal. The Czech forward, who won the Stanley Cup with Chicago in 2013, is coming off a 19-goal, 42-point season with the Winnipeg Jets.

The organization added some depth up front by signing forward Derek Grant to a one-year deal. The Abbotsford, BC native spent the 2014-15 season with Binghamton Senators in the AHL.

The Flames wrapped up the day by acquiring a fourth round pick in 2016 from the Nashville Predators in exchange for Reinhart, who has since signed with the Preds.


The Flames signed their 2014 second round picks, goaltender Mason McDonald and winger Hunter Smith, early in July.


Kylington signed his first contract with the Flames on July 15 while Arnold, Agostino, Shore, and Van Brabant accepted their qualifying offers.


Calgary continued to get their RFA’s signed later on in July, working out deals with Bouma (July 23), Jooris (July 24), Elson (July 24), and Byron (July 26).


When the 2014-15 campaign came to a close, Treliving made no bones about the fact he wanted to get Mark Giordano, who was entering the final year of his contract in the 2015-16 season, extended. He did just that on August 25, signing the captain to a six-year contract.

Last winter, Giordano was in the midst of a stellar season before he was felled by a season-ending bicep injury. In total, the rearguard 11 goals and 48 points in 61 games.

“In my opinion, if he didn’t unfortunately go down with an injury, he’s sitting here with a Norris Trophy,” Treliving told “He’s the leader in every sense in this organization — not in just the rah-rah sense. He’s a leader in terms of his action, the way he lives his life, the way he prepares.”


On Sept. 3, the Flames announced veteran defenceman Ryan Wilson would join the club on a professional try-out. He spent the last six seasons with the Colorado Avalanche, notching seven goals and 60 assists for 67 points and 157 penalty minutes. This is Wilson’s second stint with the Flames organization after he was originally signed as a free agent in 2008 before being traded to Colorado in 2009.
