What is this new coach coaching? Defense sucks...Brian Elliott isn't ready to tend net yet.

Chad Johnson the starter? I suppose its better than Ramo.

Someone better get this team playing correctly now!

GG named Chad Johnson the starter for a consecutive game, then tried to do everything he could to tamp down talk of a "goalie controversy."

There's speculation that Elliott might be hurt. Guess we'll see.


Here's a breakdown of the Flames' latest move: The signing and demotion to the AHL of journeyman goalie Tom McCollum. Looks like this is largely in anticipation of the Vegas draft.

Well I hope he's hurt because he's been terrible!

That guy in the article talks about a General Fanager Draft tool but all I get is the page shut down.

Clearly they need to do something at the D Level because they cannot afford to lose Gio or Brodie. I guess Hamilton can stay.

I'd rather not discuss Vegas expansion right now......need to figure out how to play in the real season first.

Well, expansion is gonna have a profound effect on how teams do their business. It's going to affect trades and other transactions a great deal. I'd actually say getting a "sacrificial goalie" is smart.

Yup, General Fanager got hired by an NHL team so now we only have NHL Numbers and Cap Friendly.

Flames and Avs are in a similar spot cap-wise, the Flames moreso because they'll have over $22 million in cap space to play with and their most important players are signed long-term. Just gotta weather the storm and then shake loose those awful contracts.

Would not be at all shocked to see Semyon Varlamov in an Flames sweater next season.

Boy, this team does kinda stink. Still trying to figure out what kind of system they're trying to employ.

Also...has anyone seen Dougie Hamilton?

Son of Tkachuk has been told he will play his 10th NHL game. He stays.

Boring Monahan has 4 goals and 0 assist in 10 games to start the year. Any worry, or just ride it out? Someone suggested putting him on RW with Bennett at C and Johnny at LW. Kinda makes sense.
