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.

Bob Hartley was modest when talking about his nomination for the Jack Adams Award.

"You look at the unbelievable leadership from our veterans. You look at lots of young players coming in and stepping up right away," said Hartley. "You have to look at our management. You have to look at scouting. You have to look at my partners. You have to look at my staff. ... My nomination is more a result of the work of everyone in the organization. Johnny, Gio and Huds — they're going to tell you that it has been a team effort also." Calgary is hoping for a big night on Wednesday as Johnny Gaudreau is competing for the Calder Trophy, Jiri Hudler is a Lady Byng finalist, and Mark Giordano has been nominated for the NHL Foundation Player Award.

Calgary Flames General Manager Brad Treliving doesn't expect to trade one of his nine draft picks during next week's NHL Entry Draft.

"My expectation right now is we're going to make nine selections at the draft," he said. "Now things could change. I feel comfortable we've been aggressive in finding out what people may be looking for and they understand what we may be looking for. Now it just may be finding a fit. To handicap it, I couldn't." The Flames currently hold the 15th overall pick in the first round, they also have three picks in the second round, and two more picks in the third.

Coach Bob Hartley was proud of his players after they were eliminated in Round 2 by the Anaheim Ducks.

"This series against the Ducks was priceless," said Hartley. "Now they know how they have to suffer, how hard it is, how unbelievable the pace is. That's no guarantee of success, but it's another page in our book. We have a long way to go, but those playoffs are a great investment." Calgary made the playoffs for the first time in six years and the club defeated the Vancouver Canucks in six games in Round 1. Hartley earned a nomination for the Jack Adams Trophy, as coach of the year, for his efforts in 2014-15.

Calgary Flames head coach Bob Hartley doesn't believe he'll make lineup changes as Game 5 vs. Anaheim looms.

The Flames lost Game 4, but it was close enough that one would understand why Hartley feels justified in standing pat. This also means that players such as Mark Giordano aren't quite ready to roll, which isn't especially surprising.
May 9 - 4:48 PM

The Calgary Flames have not won in 21 contests in Anaheim.

The Flames need to win two games in Anaheim in addition to one in Calgary as they trail the series 3-1 with Game 5 in Anaheim on Sunday. It will be a mighty big task for Calgary but stranger things have happened in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
May 9 - 6:24 AM

Bob Hartley has been nominated for the Jack Adams Trophy.

He guided the Flames back into the playoffs for the first time since 2009. Calgary posted a 45-30-7 record to finish third in the Pacific Division. The Flames tied for first in the NHL with 99 third-period goals and the team made a name for itself for comeback victories.
May 6 - 6:46 PM

The Calgary Flames haven't been able to win in Anaheim since April 25, 2006.

The Flames have suffered 21 consecutive losses against the Ducks at the Honda Center, including the first two games of the second round series. Calgary has a chance to rebound at home in Game 3, but eventually the Flames will need to win in Anaheim if they want to advance to the Western Conference Final.

Calgary Flames coach Bob Hartley was quick to praise his second round adversary, the Anaheim Ducks.

"Here's one of the best teams in the NHL, if not the best team," Hartley said. "For the last day, we had two white sheets on our wall in our office — strengths and weaknesses of the Ducks. We're running out of papers on the strengths side. And on the weaknesses, it's still a blank piece of paper." It's typical for a coach to praise his playoff opponent before a series starts although in this case Hartley was likely doing it at least partially tongue in cheek because he added, "To be honest with you, I don't even know why we're going there. But we'll do our best." Coaches usually want their team portrayed as the underdog whenever possible in the hopes of keeping the pressure on their opponent. That being said, it's pretty easy to sell the Anaheim Ducks as the favorites in this series.

The Calgary Flames will be looking to avoid a repeat of their 1994 series against the Vancouver Canucks.

The Flames took a 3-1 lead in that series only to lose by dropping three straight overtime contests. Once again, Calgary has earned a 3-1 series lead over Vancouver and while the young Flames team has no real relation to their '94 counterparts, they realize that the hardest part is yet to come. "You have to have that killer instinct. That's what playoffs are all about," Calgary's Brandon Bollig said. "Their lives are on the line. It's do-or-die, and if they don't win, they go home. No team is going to lay down and accept that. They'll fight to the end, just like we would."

Calgary Flames head coach Bob Hartley is $50K poorer after the late-game altercation with the Vancouver Canucks.

Interesting that Ottawa Senators bench boss Dave Cameron didn't get fined for his comments toward P.K. Subban, yet Hartley's wallet took a hit for this incident.
Apr 18 - 5:38 PM

The Calgary Flames' tendency to battle back after being down going into the third period has extended into the playoffs.

Vancouver had a 1-0 lead over Calgary after 40 minutes in Game 1 of the first round series, but the Flames rallied back in the third, scoring the winning goal with just 30 seconds remaining in the contest. "It seems like nothing rattles us," said Flames head coach Bob Hartley. "We stay composed, we keep our focus and in the third period we could feel it on the bench." Calgary was 10-20-4 when trailing after 40 minutes in the regular season, which gave them the fourth best winning percentage in the league under those circumstances.
