Listen To Episode 162: The Old Timey Train Ride
We’re analyzing the team at the quarter mark of the season, and giving our thoughts on where the team sits, and where we predict the team will finish. Will the Flames have a strong finish to the year because they are a good team, because they are in a weak Pacific Division, or a bit of both?
Lots of discussion the goalie changes over the last week – Mike Smith getting hurt, Eddie Lack starting in Detroit, and Jon Gillies relief effort. How long can the Flames keep riding Mike Smith like they are, if they want him to be ready for the post-season? What do they have to do to find a capable backup goalie?
Rumours are abound that Brad Treliving has been scouting the Buffalo Sabres recently. We break down some possible trade options and what kind of trades we’d like to see between the two teams. Would we want to see Evander Kane as a Flame? What pieces do the Flames have that we’re comfortable moving in any deal?
