Adirondack Flames Updates [2014-15]

Recommended Posts

I feel bad. But the Flames should do what is best for the development of the prospects. This is it. Plus, I think this move should add stability and keep us from moving again anytime soon.

That's my concern.

We had our farm team in Abbotsford. Close to home for call ups but apparently too far from the rest of the teams as we lost too many development days for our rookies due to travel.

So we send them East to minimize travel and I can accept that.

Now we bring them to California. Further than Abbotsford but at least in the right sort of time zone. +/- 1hr

but they do not play just the new AHL Pacific division so we must have just lost development days??

Seems to me big wins for Anaheim LA and San Jose and poor deals for Edm and Flames.

BTW why are the Canucks not in this deal?

Hardly just down the road.. San Jose must be laughing their mivonks with this deal.

It bites for those in Addy. They keep losing teams.

Utica will move to Abby, most likely (think there were rumours of Utica moving before the Flames went to the East Coast).

Maybe this mean the return of Scorch?

Abbotsford didn't make sense because there were no teams in the area and every road trip required a lot of travel. Now their entire divisions in the area.

We want to be close to the Flames. We want the players in a similar time zone to the Flames. And we want to minimize travel. All boxes are ticked.

Rochester Americans (18-25-1-0) vs Adirondack Flames (23-16-3-1) @ 05:00 PM MST [sat, Jan 31, 2015]

The Flames finally return to action after the All-star break in what has become their one & only season in Glens Falls.

The standings are tight with 12 teams still fighting for 8 playoff spots.

This means Adirondack must continue their winning ways. A 2nd consecutive win over Rochester would be a good start.

No Baertschi, Wolf, or Wotherspoon so some of the other players must step up & replace their offense.

The Flames with a victory in a penalty-filled game as they continue their quest for a eventual playoff spot.

Turner Elson with 2 goals & Sena Acolatse with a goal + assist make up for the missing offence from the call-ups.

A return to a regular schedule next week starting Wednesday against the basement-dwelling Iowa WIld in Glens Falls.

The Flames will then play 2 at home against the North Division leading Utica Comets Friday & Saturday.

02/02/2015 Markus Granlund ( C ) Adirondack DEL Recalled from loan by Calgary (NHL)

 

CALGARY FLAMES RECALL MARKUS GRANLUND - adirondackflames.com

 

With various injuries & illnesses, Calgary keeps stealing Adirondack's players.

Baertschi, Wolf, and Wotherspoon last week and now Granlund.

At least they left Joni Ortio behind to hold the fort in the drive for the playoffs.

I guess as a fan of a team in the AHL, which of course is a development league for the NHL, this is to be expected.

Prospect Of The Month: David Wolf - Calgary Flames Future Watch - flames.nhl.com
 

Well deserved accolades for the Wolfman.

A nasty leg cut in his 1st game upon call up has resulted in him being put on IR and is now day-to-day.

It remains to be seen if he will eventually return to Glens Falls for the playoff drive / playoffs.

Wishing him success wherever he ends up going forward this season. 13880

Iowa Wild (15-29-1-1) vs Adirondack Flames (24-16-3-1) @ 05:00 PM MST [Wed, Feb 04, 2015]

Back to work vs the last place Iowa WIld.

Even though this may appear as a should-win game, the disparity in the standings should not be taken for granted.

The middle of the pack in the Western Conference is also tightening up so wins are vital.

A win would also set up a battle for 1st place in the North Division against the Utica Comets on the weekend.

Not good timing to stumble against the 30th place team in the entire AHL. :unsure:

Grand Rapids Griffins with a win tonight moves into a tie with Adirondack.

The only reason we are still in 6th in the West is due to 1 more ROW.

We are now faced with the absolute necessity to beat the Utica Comets in 2 games on the weekend in Glens Falls.

Utica has had our number all season (0-7) and it is time to start beating them. Get it done Flames!! B)

It's almost like Flames management realized you cant keep depleting our AHL club just so you can sit them on the bench in the NHL.

Good to see Addy will get some much needed reinforcements.

Yup. We need wins. Looks pretty bad that we get spanked by the 30 place team while four of our best players are riding the bench (or now IR) in Calgary. Good to see them sent back.

Seven straight losses to Utica. Five games remaining against them. One tonight & one tomorrow, both in Glens Falls.

Time for them to be knocked off their perch just like their parent Vancouver Canucks recently were.

Baertschi & Granlund back in town to help the Flames with this all-important task. Let it be done!

Boxscore         Utica Comets 4 Adirondack Flames 2, 2/6 - Adirondack Flames TV [YouTube]      

 

Another loss. The Flames tenuous hold on their wild card placement in jeopardy. :(

Take away the ADK-UTI games both teams records would be ADK 24-10-3-1 & UTI 18-12-5-1 :rolleyes:

Enough fantasy island; the inability to defeat the Comets is an enigma that must be solved.

Another chance for redemption.

A win against Utica would go a long way to establish a positive Flames mindset for the rest of the playoff drive.

Let's get it done tonight then the remaining 3 games against Utica will become a much easier task mentally. :)

Boxscore          Utica Comets 3 at Adirondack Flames 2, 2/7 - Adirondack Flames TV [YouTube]
 

Another loss to Utica. The win dominance by the Comets is one of the mysteries of the universe.

Home or away doesn't matter. 9 games against the baby Nucks, 18 pts on the table, and we come up empty.

Despite a 39 shot barrage on Markstrom, Zalewski, with 1 goal in his previous 24 games, pots 2 & douses the Flames.

The grind doesn't get any easier.

Eastern Conference 1st place Syracuse Crunch next on the agenda Tuesday evening in Glens Falls.

With the home stand concluding, the Flames undertake a 4 game road trip : 13th West Rochester, 1st West Oklahoma City for 2, and concluding with 2nd West Utica again.

Let's get that stalled winning streak started. B)
