The Calgary Flames are continuing through the process of hiring a head coach, but it doesn't sound like a decision is imminent.
"We’ve talked about a few guys. We’ll speak with a few more. It’s progressing," Flames GM Brad Treliving said. Former Wild coach Mike Yeo is presumably among the people that's been interviewed, based on an earlier report that the Flames asked Minnesota for permission to speak with him. Whoever the Flames hire will be replacing Bob Hartley, who had a 134-135-25 record in four seasons with Calgary. May 24 - 8:43 AM

It might be a while before the Calgary Flames settle on a head coach.

Flames GM Brad Treliving said he's not rushing to fill the vacancy. "It’s no different than building a team," Treliving said. "You’re trying to find a match and chemistry." The Flames recently asked for permission to speak to former Wild bench boss Mike Yeo.

The Calgary Flames have reportedly asked the Minnesota Wild for permission to speak to Mike Yeo.

The Wild fired Yeo, but he's still under contract with them, so that's why Calgary had to get their blessing first. Yeo spent parts of five seasons with Minnesota and had a 173-132-44 record with the squad. Minnesota made the playoffs for three straight years from 2013 through 2015, but never got very far in the postseason. Calgary is looking for a new bench boss after firing Bob Hartley.

If the Dallas Stars beat the St. Louis Blues in Game 7 on Wednesday, Dallas' first-round pick will go to the Calgary Flames.

That's a result of the Kris Russell trade, which sent a package to Calgary that included a conditional second round pick. That selection would be upgraded to a first rounder if Dallas made it to the Western Conference Final and Russell plays in at least half of the Stars' first and second round games. Dallas has consistently been using Russell in the playoffs, so all that remains is to see if the Stars can overcome the Blues.

The firing of coach Bob Hartley was "an eye-opener for a lot of our players," according to Mark Giordano.

Hartley spent four seasons with Calgary and the team posted a 134-135-25 over that span. The Flames failed to make the playoffs in three of those four campaigns, including the 2015-16 season. "You always just feel terrible as a player. There’s no other way to describe it, because you feel like you let someone down," Giordano said. "I’ve been in this situation before, but being the captain of the team, it’s a little bit different. And having a good working relationship and off-ice relationship with Bob, as well, it’s tough. I talked to Bob and thanked him for everything."
