Episode 247: Optimism Is High After Two Games

Two games into the season, and the Flames have 3 of a possible 4 points. The powerplay is clicking, Markstrom is giving the team excellent goaltending, Tanev is blocking shots, Mangiapane and Dube are playing hard…there is a lot to like about the Flames right now. Is it too good to be true? We break down the first two games for the Flames and look ahead to what the team needs to do to stay the course with this good start.

Episode 248: Too Early To Worry?

The Flames are four games into the season and have been handed their first regulation loss at the hands of the Maple Leafs. There are a lot of good things going on with the team right now, but we’re starting to notice a few weaknesses, including the RW depth and Milan Lucic and the fourth line. Is it too early in the season to worry? As well the guys respond to a Tweet and discuss the rumours that the Stockton Heat could play in Canada this season.

Episode 249: Re-calibrating Expectations?

Frustration with the team’s disappointing week leads to debating how to fix the flaws with this team and if it is time to make major changes to the Flames roster before their window of opportunity closes on the current core roster. The guys have different ideas of how to handle the Sam Bennett request for a ‘change of scenery’ and debate how they’d handle the scenario and what a reasonable return might be.

Episode 250: Blasting on Blasty

If the Flames stay playing at less than .500, what changes need to be made? Is it time to change the coach? GM? Or make major roster moves? The guys answer these questions as well as discuss the Sam Bennett situation and some possible ways to change the forward lines without making major mid-season acquisitions.

Episode 251: The Quarter Mark Of The Season


We're now 14 games into the season, and the Flames are out of the top 4 in the Scotia North division. Consistency is still an issue for the Flames that will have to be remedied for them to make the playoffs. On this week's podcast we take a look at where the Flames are at after 14 games and two "playoff rounds" and if the Flames favourable February schedule can help them gain points on their rivals.

Episode 252: Is The Sky Falling?

It’s been a rough week for the Flames to say the least. As we try to dissect the Flames challenges the guys try to answer the hard questions such as if management is the issue, what the Flames on-ice identity is (and should be), if we fire Geoff Ward who replaces him and if Mark Giordano is still the right guy to be Captain for this team.

Episode 253: What's Old Is New Again

After a embarassing 6-1 loss against the Senators the Flames shuffle their lines up and go with the top 3 forward lines that they had last year, which leads to a 6-3 win over the Senators. This week we discuss if the Elias Lindholm is better for the Flames as a Right Winger, or a Centre this season and which version of the lineup we think will hide some of the team's weaknesses and give them the best chance of success for the next week of games.

Episode 254: Darryl Is Back!

The Calgary Flames have re-hired Darryl Sutter as the team's Head Coach. What does this mean for the Flames and will Darryl finally be the one to break the Flames out of their rut and get the team performing to their potential?

Episode 256: Old Habits, Same Results

The Flames started the "second era of Darryl Sutter" on a high but this week seem to have slipped back into hold habits, and with that brought the same old results. We once again try to figure out what's going on with the Flames and why this team just can't put things together. Johnny Gaudreau trade talk is a big part of this week's discussion as we also ponder why Matthew Tkachuk hasn't excelled under Sutter and just how many games the Flames will need to win to make the postseason. If they do make the playoffs, how far can they really be expected to go?

Episode 257: The Good And Bad Of Our Remaining Schedule


Sitting 2 points out of the final playoff spot in the Scotia North division but having played 5 more games than Montreal, the Flames are running out of time to make the playoffs. The guys discuss what has to go right for the Flames to make the playoffs, and how the team has looked adapting to the Darryl Sutter system in the last week.

The good news? Almost half of Calgary’s remaining schedule is against the two teams they’ve had the most success against: Montreal (3-1-0) and Vancouver (4-2-0). The bad news? The Flames have just nine wins combined against the other four teams in the North who they play for the 11 other games on the schedule.

Episode 258: It's Official...We're Trade Deadline Sellers

As the Flames season continues to slowly slip away from them, we look at what went wrong this year and what the best moves are going forward, which brings more questions than answers. Should Milan Lucic be our next captain? Is Sean Monahan a viable #1 or #2 Centre moving forward? Where will the scoring come from next year if Gaudreau is traded? And is it time to re-tool or re-build?


And of course, we preview the Trade Deadline and the Flames in a very different position than usual being sellers come April 12. What players have value? What can we get? How can we start the re-tooling at this deadline? The guys answer all these questions.
