Bob Hartley left Calgary practice early as he was not happy with the Flames play.
Hartley left after 25 minutes. "He was pretty pissed off about the way things were looking," said right-winger David Jones. He wasn’t happy with the way we were practicing out there. It’s a little embarrassing when we’re not making five-foot passes. We weren’t as crisp as we would’ve liked to be. We’ve had better practices. It was one of those days when we weren’t clicking." The Flames meet the Leafs at home on Tuesday and it should be interesting to see how the Flames react. Feb 9 - 5:45 AM

GM Brad Treliving will decide shortly if the Calgary Flames are buyers or sellers as the NHL trade deadline nears on February 29.

"We know where we sit today. We’ve got plans that we’re formulating, based on different situations," Treliving said. "The biggest thing I always say is you have to separate emotion from reality, too. You have to know very clearly where you are at, the stage of your team ... "You can’t be a in a position where you’re changing course based upon each night’s game. So on Monday, ‘OK, we’re going to go in this direction.’ And then whatever the result is on Monday … then on Tuesday say, ‘No, scrap that.’ That, to me, is chasing your tail. You need to have a real sense of reality of where your team is at, based upon your group and what they’ve shown you.And then follow that plan." Should the Flames be sellers, do not be surprised to see players like Jiri Hudler, Kris Russell, David Jones and netminders Karri Ramo and Jonas Hiller be available according to the Calgary Sun.

The Calgary Flames will have their work cut out for them after the All-Star break.

The Flames still have a game against Nashville on Wednesday, so they have an opportunity to at least go into the break on a positive note, but regardless of what happens they won't be entering the stint in a playoff spot. Calgary has a 21-22-5 record, which puts the squad eight points behind in the race for a postseason berth. That's a big gap at this stage of the season, but not an entirely insurmountable one. "We just have to look at the standings," said Flames head coach Bob Hartley. "If we want to be a playoff team, we have to climb — and time is running out. We have to make a statement. In the NHL, we’re supposed to be mentally strong, and that’s going to be a test for us."

The Calgary Flames earned their seventh straight victory Thursday night.

That streak has transformed them from a team that was starting to look like a longshot to make the playoffs this season to one holding the final playoff spot in the admittedly weak Pacific Division. Calgary now has a 15-14-2 record in 2015-16, which still isn't great, but it's enough to suspend the narrative of the Flames regressing following their surprising run to the playoffs last season.

The flu bug is going through the Calgary Flames dressing room and coach Bob Hartley gave them Friday off from practice to rest.

The Flames have been extremely hot at home as they have won their last eight games and host the New York Rangers on Saturday. The Rangers are coming off a big loss to Edmonton on Friday so the Flames could be getting a tired Rangers squad in an effort to raise their win streak to nine. Flames fans hope the flu bug doesn't take its toll on the team Saturday.

The Calgary Flames have won their last six games at home.

Calgary started the season 1-5 at home and their poor 3-9-2 road record has relegated them to the bottom of the NHL standings although they are tied with Edmonton and Carolina at 22 points apiece. They will try for seven in a row Tuesday against the San Jose Sharks.

Bob Hartley knows that his last place Flames are facing adversity right now, but he expects them to show character and fight through their struggles.

The Flames are currently tied for the fewest points in the NHL, but they're about to begin on a five-game homestand. "When you lose there’s always a doubt," Hartley said. "There’s always a doubt. It’s human nature. It has nothing to do only with sports. It’s business, it’s school, its everywhere. That’s where you test your character, your leadership, your personal leadership. You have to find ways to get better and to make things happen."

The Calgary Flames love playing overtime as they are 5-0 this season in three-on-three hockey.

The Flames have plenty of speedy young forwards and they excel on the three-on-three. They have also won four in a row at home as they try to recover from a horrible start to the season. The Flames are now 8-12-1 and are 12th in the Western Conference.

The Calgary Flames are on pace for just 44 points this season.

That would make this by far the franchise's worse showing over 82 games. "We’re not proud of what we’re doing right now," Flames head coach Bob Hartley said. "I’m talking on behalf of the entire organization, but at the same time, enough dwelling on negatives. We have to build on positives." The good news is that because the Pacific Division as a whole isn't off to a particularly strong start, they're still just five points behind in the playoff race.

The Calgary Flames have given up 19 second period goals in 11 October games.

The Flames are struggling as their 2-8-1 record indicates and no where as much as in the second stanza. Friday was no exception as Montreal managed to score three goals in the second on only seven shots. The Flames are not even close to a playoff spot and their chances of making the post-season are getting slimmer and slimmer as they are digging themselves a hole in which it will be tough to get out of.

The Calgary Flames' playoff chances are already bleak.

It's still early, but the Flames 2-7-1 start is meaningfully bad. Before this season only 11 teams had recorded five or fewer points in their first 10 games over the past decade. Of them, just the 2013 Washington Capitals made the playoffs. That emphasizes how hard it can be to make up ground, especially in the era of three-point games. That's not to suggest that all hope is lost for Calgary, but for a team that was hoping to build off of a surprisingly strong 2014-15 campaign, this is a bad problem.

Ken King, the President and CEO of Calgary Sports and Entertainment, believes that that the Saddledome is no longer a viable option for the Flames.

"You don’t replace things because they’re old," said Ken King. "You replace things because they’re not efficient and they’re not functional and they’re not doing the job that they were originally designed and intended to do." King said this at the unveiling of Calgary's new entertainment center, CalgaryNEXT arena, on Tuesday. The Flames would like to be playing in the new building by the start of the 2020-2021 NHL season.

Calgary announced new deals for their coaching staff.

The Flames have re-signed associate coach Jacques Cloutier and assistant coaches Martin Gelinas and Jamie Pringle to multi-year contracts. The group certainly played a role in Bob Hartley winning the Jack Adams Award, as coach of the year.

The Calgary Flames expect to draft right where they are on Friday night, 15th overall.

"In terms of us moving from our position upwards, I would say nothing at all remotely close to being close. I predict right now that we will be picking 15th," Flames GM Brad Treliving said. Of note, the last few names you might've heard of drafted at 15th overall include: Erik Karlsson (Senators, 2008), JT Miller (Rangers, 2011), and Dylan Larkin (Red Wings, 2014).

Bob Hartley took home the Jack Adams Award on Wednesday night.

Hartley led an otherwise underdog Calgary Flames team to their first playoff berth since 2009, including a trip to the second round of the playoffs. In three seasons with the Flames thus far, Hartley has steered his youthful team from a 19-win season in 2012-13's truncated season, to a 45-win team last season with a bright future ahead.
