Hey listeners! This week our co-hosts discuss a solid week of hockey for the Flames. With a loss in overtime to the Sabres followed by wins over the Red Wings and Oilers, the Flames are in good shape on top of the Western Conference. We talk about Sam Bennett and Derek Ryan as well as the second powerplay unit.
In the second period we discuss some of the trades that have happened around the league. The Ducks have been making moves trying save the season, the Wild bizarrely traded a pretty good forward in Niederreiter for a struggling forward they hope will become pretty good again in Rask, and the Oilers have players hit the waiver wire and sign their new starter in a bit of a head-shaker.
The third period this week will be another team profile, this time: the New York Islanders. The Isles are the surprise team of the league this season after their franchise player left to star in Toronto. They found a good coaching staff and find themselves the current Metro Division leaders. We take a look at the now and the near future for the Islanders.
Overtime: In the wake of the Koskinen signing in Edmonton, we discuss David Rittich and what sort of contract he might be looking at as a Restricted Free Agent with arbitration rights.

Welcome back listeners! After a long break there is a ton of topics to get into, so let’s get right to it.
First Period: Our co-hosts discuss some of the more prominent games over the past couple of weeks for the Flames including the games against Tampa Bay, Winnipeg and San Jose. We weren’t purposely choosing games that the Flames won, but fortunately they won the big ones.
Second Period: We did into the story out of Dallas where the Stars CEO went on a media offensive against Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. We talk Kucherov, All-Star Captains and injuries around the league.
Third Period: We couldn’t help ourselves, we had to talk about the Edmonton Oilers. After a nice start to his coaching tenure, Ken Hitchcock has seen his team drop 6 in a row, which has led to GM Peter Chiarelli making some bizarre trades to shore up the team to help turn the tide. This is pretty much just two Flames fans taking runs at the Oilers as a hockey organization for about 20 minutes. Good fun was had by all.
Overtime: It’s the time of year to make resolutions for self-improvement and we came up with a list for the Calgary Flames to follow in the 2019.
