Did the Flames turn down a huge offer for Jay Bouwmeester?

The Calgary Flames traded Jay Bouwmeester to the St. Louis Blues a little over one year ago. In exchange, the Flames received a conditional first-round pick, Mark Cundari and goaltender Reto Berra. The trade was supposed to begin the rebuilding effort in Calgary, but many believed the Blues escaped with a nice asset for an extremely manageable price. It turns out that the Flames...

Bob Hartley will be back for third season as Flames head coach

The Calgary Flames had very low expectations for 2013-14 and by most accounts, they exceeded them a lot with 77 points, just six fewer than the Canucks. Head coach Bob Hartley is one of the beneficiaries of that. Thought to be on a very hot seat coming into a season with little hope, Hartley won't be going anywhere. Flames President and acting General Manager Brian Burke made...

Boston College duo set to make Flames debut

As teammates, linemates and close friends at Boston College, Johnny Gaudreau and Bill Arnold say it will be easier to make their NHL debuts with the Calgary Flames on Sunday night because they have each other.

WATCH: TJ Brodie tips puck into his net for brutal own goal

Winnipeg Jets forward Michael Frolik threw the puck on net when it got deflected twice. The last deflection was off Calgary Flames defenseman TJ Brodie’s stick and floated right past goalie Karri Ramo and Ramo waved at it hoping for the best. Easily one of the funnier goals you’ll see.

Burke's GM plan is patience

Brian Burke insists the fact that the Calgary Flames now have competition in the search to find another general manager will change absolutely nothing about his plan of attack. Nearly four months after Burke explained the Christmas-time firing of Jay Feaster was done immediately so the club could get on with competing against the Buffalo Sabres for GM candidates, the Flames president...

Ramo slams door on crashing Kings as Monahan scores winner for Flames in a shootout

Fully knowing their place outside the National Hockey League playoff picture, the Calgary Flames welcomed the Los Angeles Kings to the Scotiabank Saddledome. A team which fully knows their place in the post-season scheme. Yet — like they’ve done with so many opponents this 2013-14 rebuilding season — the Flames still shocked the visitors on Wednesday night. And, even after...

Anze Kopitar ‘Circles The Wagon’, Scores Nice Goal vs Calgary

Los Angeles Kings forward Anze Kopitar might be one of the most underrated players in the NHL. On Wednesday night, he flashed his skills by circling the wagon and making a nice move before burying a backhander past Calgary Flames goalie Karri Ramo.

Calgary Flames won't tank for draft position

Be bad for (Aaron) Ekblad. Sink for Sam (Reinhart). Easier said than done. As much as Calgary Flames fans want to support a winning team, a segment is out there wishing their NHL squad would lose every game the rest of the way in the hopes of landing the highest draft pick possible.

Ramo & Gio leads Calgary Flames to win over New Jersey Devils

Six months ago, the Calgary Flames did everything to avoid the comparison. With Miikka Kiprusoff’s retirement, the Flames needed a new No. 1 goalie, and Karri Ramo’s arrival meant a new product of Finland’s goalie factory gaining the lion’s share. Still, the organization — and especially Ramo, himself — felt it taboo to put the two netminders in the same category. After...
