Calgary Flames 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

At the start of the 2023-24 season, the Calgary Flames generated sluggish action on the future market. And with plenty of good reason. Calgary missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons last year. And there was no indication that things would improve. The Flames will finally break ground on a new arena later this year but are currently operated in the outdated Saddledome and suffer from low revenue as a result. The Flames were on the outside looking in from the final Western Conference playoff spot as the All-Star break approached.

Calgary Flames History

The Calgary Flames were founded in 1972 as the Atlanta Flames. Calgary became home to the Flames in 1980. In 1989 the franchise won its only Stanley Cup.

Upon their arrival in Calgary, the Flames were immediately taken into the hearts of the Calgary fans. The Flames brought legitimacy and pride to this Western Canadian city located in the mountains. Calgary was an immediate contender against their Provincial arch-rival Edmonton Oilers. Edmonton and Calgary forged one of the great NHL rivalries in history, known as the “Battle of Alberta.”

In the early years of the Flames, they struggled to keep pace with the Edmonton Dynasty. Calgary was quite good as a team, but the Oilers were among the greatest teams in NHL history. But in 1986, the Flames upset the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions to earn a spot in the Stanley Cup Final. Unfortunately, they could not overcome goaltender Patrick Roy and the Montreal Canadiens.

In 1989 it all came together for the Flames. Wayne Gretzky was gone to the Los Angeles Kings to weaken the Oilers. And Calgary stepped into the void. The Flames got revenge on the Canadiens with an impressive win in the Stanley Cup Final. Stars such as Doug Gilmour, Lanny McDonald, Al MacInnis, Joe Mullen, and Joe Nieuwendyk became Hall of Famers. Goaltender Mike Vernon was clutch when it mattered most.

Not long after that championship, the Flames entered a long dark period of not being competitive with large market teams. But with the arrival of head coach Darryl Sutter, the Flames have reached elite status again. However, the loss of Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk puts into doubt the Flames ability to compete in the future. Additionally, Calgary is looking for a new building to replace the outdated Scotiabank Saddledome.
