POND HOCKEY

IVE BEEN A FAN SINCE 1980 AND THRU MANY YEARS OF UPS AND DOWNS,I HAVE TO SAY I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH A DISORGANIZED AND UNINSPIRED GROUP OF VERY CAPABLE HOCKEY PLAYERS.FOR GODS SAKE HIT SOMEBODY .....SHOW SOME INSPIRATION.......IS IT THE PLAYERS FAULT? TO A DEGREE IT IS,BUT WHEN YOUR LEADER BEHIND THE BENCH DOES NOT EVER GET FIRED UP,ABOUT ANYTHING, A FIRE  WILL NEVER GET LIT UNDER THE PLAYERS. GULUTZAN IS LIKE DONALD TRUMP.....GOT THE JOB SOMEHOW BUT HAS NO IDEA WHAT HES DOING AND LIKE TRUMP, HA

Evaluating The Prospects

The Calgary Flames have done an admirable job of improving their prospect pool over the past three seasons. A simple comparison of the 2010 vs the 2013 development camp rosters should be proof enough. But what does that mean to a Flames team with roster gaps at all positions? The Flames aren't looking for their prospect pool to fill in a few gaps or to provide a successor-ship plan for aging players. The Flames are going through a full scale rebuild and need help at every position. Most Flames

The Loss Of A True Fan!

My mom was a true Calgary Flames fan. For the last 25 years, whether they were winning or losing, she never let anyone say anything bad about them and get away with it.

Yesterday May 1st 2013 after an 8 year battle with ovarian cancer the Calgary Flames lost a true Fan, A fan so dedicated that she even requested to be barried in her jersey. She was truely amazing and the strongest woman I

Thank You Jarome

I have never had the pleasure to meet the hockey player known as Jarome Igina. He does not know my name, my story, where I come from, and could walk past me on the street and think nothing of it. Since the trade, I’ve been asking myself why I feel emotion for a player that I never met and at the end of the day just a hockey player? Growing up in Kelowna I had the pleasure to watch Jarome for the first time when he played with the Kamloops Blazers. I got to see a player who could combine speed, s

The Pre-season That Counts!

[indentTwo games in and back to back. The Flames have shown marked improvement in the first two games of this the Lockout shortened 48 Game Season. With the next tilt coming Wednesday in Vancouver what is next for the Flames? What can we take away as fans from the previous two games? First of all with barely a training camp some new additions and a new coach and system I feel the Flames are just on the verge of putting it together. Second this is not the whole puzzle there are yet some pieces to
