Not-so-long ago, Jay Feaster was the interim GM of the Calgary Flames, Generally one assumes anyone in an interim position is kinda like the substitute teacher that wants all the students to love him. You know the one that plays Heads Up 7-Up, mixes in a game of floor hockey rather than wind sprints, and watches movies with swear words rather than Lord of the Flies. We all realized than these people with precarious tenure were always the easiest to influence and get along with. Well let’s fast forward to a new era that takes the interim away from J-Feast, and gives him absolute power, absolutely.

It has been two and a half years since the Calgary Flames last played in a postseason game. Due to one poor personnel move after another, the Flames have been on a downhill trend, and it isn’t going to get any better anytime soon.

“His passion meter — it’s not low on a scale from 1 to 10. It’s turned off,” Hrudey said. “This guy has to learn that you actually have to have passion in a...

As exciting as it is to play in some of the more raucous barns in the National Hockey League, a trip to Alberta is never easy. The Calgary Flames in particular are a tough squad to knock off, and Ottawa would know - before tonight, the Senators last win at the Saddledome came back in 2003.
But, tonight's 3-1 victory put an end to...
from Steve MacFarlane of the Calgary Sun, His next closest competition is another handful back, with current linemates Mikael Backlund and Alex Tanguay and defenceman Jay Bouwmeester all at minus-5 for the year.
While Iginla’s five goals have him in a tie for the team lead, he’s nowhere near the top of the NHL charts in that statistical category, one in which he can usually...
via the Flames Media Relations department, “I met with Nik last Thursday, when we placed him on waivers, and told him we have been trying to trade him. While some teams expressed interest, no one was willing to take on the contract. I advised Nik that upon clearing waivers we would place him on re-entry waivers and I gave him permission to speak with other teams. We are pleased...
BACKLUND'S 100TH GAME
Mikael Backlund in his third game of the season and his 100th NHL game. The 22 year-old was Calgary's first-round pick in 2007. He went 24th overall in the draft. In 100 games with the te...
They will pick up a prorated part of his salary, about $1.1 million. Hagman could help up front and the acquisition could lead to an all-Finn line if he joins Teemu Selanne and Saku Koivu.They will pick up a prorated part of his salary, about $1.1 million.
