Harvey's Redemption

This video confirms my decision to root for the Flames. It will make you proud of this organization, and it's worth the five minutes.

Complete Flames Schedule Announced

The (hopefully) revitalized young Flames crew will open the season in Washington against Ovechkin and his gang on October 3. The Flames new devision includes Anaheim, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Jose and Vancouver. Another cool update to scheduling change: we'll play every eastern conference team twice, once at home, and once on the road. Other than that, three five-game road trips and two five-game home stands are the main highlights for me. What do you guys think?

Roman Horak Recalled

Due to a fractured hand, Paul Byron has been placed on injured reserve, and Roman Horak has been recalled to take his place in the Flames roster.

There's a New Arena Plan? Council Hasn't Heard That One Yet

If there is indeed a plan afoot to get a new arena for Calgary, it seems Council is completely unaware of it. Metro's Robson Fletcher is reporting that Alderman Ray Jones, City Council's rep on the Stampede Board, has no answer to Ron McLean's claims this weekend about a new arena plan. Either way, it's not getting any city dollars -- plebicite or not, it's just not happening. How will the Flames find the money? Watch this space!

Karlsson Traded

"CALGARY, AB -- The Calgary Flames announced today they have traded goaltender Henrik Karlsson to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for a 7th round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The 7th round pick was originally the Ottawa Senators, previously acquired by the Blackhawks."

Flames assign five more to Abbotsford

In light of the looming NHL lockout, the Flames assigned 18 players to the Abbotsford Heat yesterday including T.J. Brodie, Sven Baertschi, Max Reinhart, Lance Bouma, Roman Horak, Greg Nemisz, and others. Today, Akim Aliu, Paul Byron, Joe Piskula, Krys Kolanos, and Ben Walter joined them.

"Ten or 11" Flames players to travel to New York for CBA Negotiations

After news broke that not all Flames players would be attending the team's annual charity golf tournament, NHLPA player rep Matt Stajan has said that a number his teammates will instead be traveling to New York in a final effort to influence CBA negotiations before Saturday's deadline. "It is unfortunate we all can't go, but, obviously, getting a new CBA is our No. 1 focus because we want to play hockey. We don't want to be locked out and have a bunch of other charity events cancelled . . . or can't attend because we're locked out," Stajan told the Calgary Herald.

In case you want to know about Jay Bouwmeester's "stalk," it's apparently rising.
