Flames Goaltending

Brad Treliving has done many things right since becoming the Calgary Flames' general manager in April 2014, but goaltending is one area where he would surely appreciate a do-over. The Flames have dressed 11 different netminders during Treliving’s tenure, most of whom were his own acquisitions that lasted two seasons or less.  The team has not had a proven franchise starter since Mikka Kiprusoff. Instead, the Flames have spent the last few years hanging their hopes on tandems who share the crease more or less evenly with varied success. First it was Jonas Hiller-Kari Ramo. Then it was Brian Elliott-Chad Johnson. Then came Mike Smith-David Rittich.   Calgary Flames goalie David Rittich (THE CANADIAN PRESS/Jeff McIntosh) Cue in the summer of 2019, when Calgary re-signed Rittich for two years and then signed Cam Talbot for one, opting to let Mike Smith go.

Calgary Flames

It’s a play every hockey fan has likely discussed this week. Last Sunday, Columbus Blue Jackets forward Kole Sherwood took what amounted to an innocuous jab looking for a rebound from Calgary Flames netminder David Rittich. Then came Rittich's teammate Milan Lucic with a classic haymaker sucker-punch. With his glove on. To Sherwood’s face. Decking him to the ice. A decade ago, Lucic may have been assessed two minutes, possibly four, for roughing. But these are different times in the NHL. The game has changed. Unfortunately, Lucic hasn’t. Lucic may still feel the sting of getting dropped by the Blue Jackets’ Dalton Prout a few years ago when he was still with the Boston Bruins. He may feel an extra shot of adrenaline when he plays them. Or he may feel the need to re-gain street cred that was lost in Columbus. What Lucic clearly hasn't done is learned. The Vancouver-born winger continues to play outside the rules because he’s too slow for today’s game, and...
