Hello listeners! We are back after a bit of a layoff. Apologies for the extended absence. Unfortunately, our plan to pick back up and follow the Flames after our vacations was upended by the unceremonious defeat of the Flames at the hands of the Avalanche.
We are back now for a post-mortem. The regular season was certainly a success, but there are questions to discuss about the make up of this team after a very disappointing showing in the playoffs.
We talk about the season, the playoffs, and the future. Lots to dig into, so please enjoy!
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.
In this episode, we discuss the week that was for the Calgary Flames including a four game winning streak starting in Toronto and wrapping up against the Blackhawks in Calgary. We also touch on a couple of stories around the NHL including the Ottawa Senators and their special teams coach as well as William Nylander.
We also talk about the divisional leaders around the NHL and then in overtime we talk about a Sean Monahan comparison that will shock you.
