Despite the commentary around not wanting to continuously talk about the Calgary Flames, Elliotte Friedman and the 32 Thoughts the Podcast still finds a way to talk about the team whenever possible. Now that is for a few key reasons. One is that they are the most interesting team around the trade deadline in terms of what direction they are going and the other is that the Flames currently hold all of the cards when it comes to top trade targets. This Friday’s episode of 32 Thoughts covered lots of Flames tidbits including Jacob Markstrom and the New Jersey Devils (again), Noah Hanifin trade d ..read more

Holding multiple first round picks is rare territory for the Calgary Flames

Barring any trades before draft night, the Calgary Flames are slated to pick more than once in the first round of the NHL draft for just the second time in team history. The last time it occurred was over a decade ago all the way back in 2013. So far that has been the only occurrence of multiple first-round picks since the team moved to Calgary in 1980. Although on the surface it may seem like a rarity across the league given how little the Flames have done it, holding multiple first-round picks is an incredibly common occurrence around the NHL. So how often do other teams find themselves wit ..read more

Kylington has been a great story for the Flames this season since he returned from his almost two-year absence from the club. Since coming back ..read more

With a come-from-behind win on Monday, the Calgary Flames moved one step closer to the playoffs as we enter the final two months of the season. The closer we get to the trade deadline, the more the trade rumours spark up. Front and center in those rumours in recent days has been Jacob Markstrom. After Elliotte Friedman revealed the Flames and New Jersey Devils had what he called “serious talks” on Markstrom, he immediately moved up to number one on NHL trade boards. Whether or not the Flames should move Markstrom is an entirely different discussion, but if he does become available, who would ..read more

Flames Sunday Census: The amount of trust Craig Conroy has earned as Calgary’s general manager

As soon as Craig Conroy was hired, he was off to a busy start. Conroy inherited a team that didn’t seem to have any sort of identity. Not sure if they were either a playoff team hoping to compete for a Stanley Cup, or if they were a team in need of a shake-up. Conroy had the chance to put his fingerprints on the team, and decide on the direction that he thought would be best. So far in his tenure, he has traded 2022–23 Flames leading scorer Tyler Toffoli, Nikita Zadorov, and Elias Lindholm. Through the trades, he acquired Yegor Sharangovich who is second on the team in goals, Andrei Kuzmenko ..read more

With the trade deadline for the 2023–24 season three weeks away, the Calgary Flames are five points outside of the playoffs, and a retooling era has dawned. With the trade of Elias Lindholm to the Vancouver Canucks now in the rearview mirror, only three of the most prominent trade chips in the NHL—Jacob Markstrom, Chris Tanev, and Noah Hanifin—remain on the Flames’ roster. That means one thing: the trades are not yet done. With Flames General Manager Craig Conroy looking to make the team competitive for the future, trading players strictly for picks is one strategy he could employ, but acquir ..read more
