Senators-Flames Preview

The Calgary Flames have done a nice job of following losses with victories. Stringing wins together hasn't been quite as easy. After opening a five-game homestand on a positive note, they've got a chance to change that Saturday night against an Ottawa Senators team that's dropped six of seven in Calgary. Thursday's 5-3 win over Arizona improved the Flames to 7-0-1...

Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire Outlook for Week 5

The waiver wire is a place where owners overreact and let good players go when they see little production over a small period of time. As the NHL season enters its fifth full week, star players are shining bright, off-the-radar players are now blips on the radar, and disappointments (see: Flyers, Philadelphia) are working their way down to zero percent ownership. This cannot be...

Blues trade Kris Russell to Calgary

The Blues have traded Kris Russell to Calgary in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2014. The move is one that has many fans scratching their heads considering Russell went through waivers - and cleared waivers - earlier this week.
