Adirondack Flames Updates [2014-15]

Recommended Posts

Is there a Flames fan alive that wants this guy in our system after this incident? Highly unlikely.

Get this berserker out of our system.

Who do we contact in the Flames mgmt to voice our utter contempt to?

This could have been a Gaudreau-sized player, it was simply the 1st guy he could grab in his rage. You can easily see the force he tried to slam Carrier into the ice with before awaking from his rage.

Unforgivable, no apology accepted, this guy needs counselling.

This is beyond despicable, even Bertuzzi's split second lack of foresight pails in comparison.

Even MacSorley's stick to the head didn't carry intentions like this did.

This guy can snap like this? Please Flames, drop him, like, right now.

Want to give hockey a REEEAAAL bad name? Give this guy a chance to snap like this again.

Anyone have an adjective to describe this? I'm out of words.

Despicable, disgusting, atrocity, contemptible...none quite cut it.

It's a low day to have seen this in our system.

I hope mgmt can see the positive in a knee jerk reaction in this instance.

Drop this guy. Show respect for your fellow mgmt teams.

Or invite them to pull this, I don't know...thing, on our players.

Seems pretty clear to me.

FLAMES DOWNED BY DEVILS IN HOME OPENER - adirondackflames.com

 

Adirondack fails in home opener to Baby Devils.

The taint of Scorch's debut spills over to team.

Slow start, but given the apparent talent on our farm team, they will start to prevail going forward. B)

Ortio in net for all 5 goals tonight. That is 11 goals in the first 2 games. .828 SP% to start the season. Have to keep playing him and hope he works his way through it.

Not too happy with the horrible start this year. 5 goals in 4 games is pretty weak. Makes me wonder if the organization is kicking themselves in the pants for not renewing  Ward as coach.

How many games does that get ?  I'd give him 30.  And opening night no less. 

Apparently just one....:(

i agree, this is the stuff that needs to be taken from the game.. powers that be cant see the difference between fighting and stuidity

And in the news, not related to Gillies or Scorch......

Gedid signed 2-way AHL deal; assigned to COL of the ECHL.

Carr assigned to COL of the ECHL.

Too many goalies to carry; Carr looks like he could be OK, and is still only 25. Thiessen is older and more likely a career AHL goalie.

In new related to Gilles  :wacko: he was suspended 12 games in addition to the one game he already got.  Hopefully we never see him again.  But we will see I guess.

And in more Scorch-related news......

 

 

Flames to replace controversial mascot.

 

GLENS FALLS -- Scorch, the original mascot of the Adirondack Flames, will not take the ice, after a controversial preseason unveiling skit in which the puck-head mascot overpowered an actor portraying a Glens Falls firefighter.

“We’re extinguishing Scorch,” Brian Petrovek, president of the Adirondack Flames, said in an interview on Tuesday. “The misjudgment we made was such that we came to that decision.”

The team issued an apology for the skit on Oct. 9, shortly after The Post-Star reported about it.

The mascot did not appear at the Flames’ home opener at the Glens Falls Civic Center on Saturday, and will not appear ever.

Petrovek said the management is designing a new mascot that will be associated with fun, not fear.

Adirondack Flames Snuff Out Scorch, The Firefighter-Murdering Mascot - Barry Petchesky - deadspin.com

 

Excerpt (Check link for full article):

 

The Flames quickly released a statement apologizing for the particulars of Scorch's unveiling, but the damage was done. Scorch is, after all, a cheaply constructed anthropomorphic flame whose only possible upshot is teaching kids it's OK to touch fire.

So even as the embers of Trevor Gillies's inexplicable hockey career still smolder, the Flames poured a bucket of sand on top of Scorch, and then kicked some wet earth over his ashes.

:P

Scorch..You're gone before I even got a chance to meet you.

You were so extremely bad you were great.

I will always remember what could have been!

The people who should be concerned are all the ones who have been saying that we should have 3 or 4 of these players on the Flames right now.

 

You have to earn it on the farm before you can get your chance in the bigs.

It's early. But I am a little concerned with this start. Hopefully they can right the ship quickly.

 

I wasn't impressed with the coaching in the young stars tournament. I wonder if this new coach has it? I dunno.

Adirondack looking to end their winless streak against the Flyers AHL farm team (last yr's Adirondack Phantoms).

This team includes ex-NHLers Zack Stortini & Jay Rosehill justifying the need for similar players in our system to counter this. The tough guy / enforcer days are not over yet.

 

Many people's pre-season enthusiasm about having a supremely talented Calder Cup challenging team is slowly fading away. Baby Flames - Turn it around NOW!

Complete Boxscore

 

4 consecutive losses to start the season. 1 consolation pt for pushing it to OT tonight.

Hopefully the team morale holds up as there should be wins galore in the months ahead.

Replay tomorrow night against same team, but in Glens Falls.

3 games in 3 nights & we thought the Calgary Flames had a tough season starting schedule.
