    Taratukhin managed well in Omaha last year with no Russians if I'm correct (I may be missing somebody, but I don't recall any being there). I've heard he's learned a ton of English. I am quite high on both Taratukhin and Boyd, and believe both will make the team out of camp. I think Prust also has an outside shot depending on how the signings and such unfold in the next little while. Rumours on the go:

    Trade a pick for rights to pre-emptively negotiate with Smyth as per Peter Maher. He did mention it, but however I believe it was only once, and he hasn't said anything about it since

    Scott Hannan: Also a blurb by Maher, which he mentioned on more than one occasion from what I've heard

    Tom Preissing: Rumoured to go to every team by their respective fans. The reason is likely because he was the leader in +/- for defensemen on his team in the regular season 2 years in a row on 2 different teams. He won't eat minutes, but the numbers indicate that he's solid 3rd line guy, and seems to have a lot of assists (led San Jose Dmen in even strength assists in 05-06 suggesting that he's a good puck mover). He can likely be had for 2.5 million or less unless he's really greedy/somebody's willing to overpay.

    Todd Bertuzzi: Keenan connection. I don't want this one...seriously.

    Martin Gelinas: Minor blurbs here and there due to the 04 and the Keenan factors. Sure these are usually unfulfilled, but sometimes they come to fruition

    All I can think of right now.

    Has anyone talked about the 24th pick with Mikael Backlund? Top Sweeden player. Isnt Huseliuse Sweeden as well? perhaps they would be dynimite playing together.

    its strange that no other team took much european in the 1st round. Hopefully this is a good break for calgary. I think Calgary needs some serious top euro scorer to make calgary a even greater threat in the nhl.

    yes 2nd overall ranking for european player, but 1st for sweeden player. which I think is awesome. considering they had the 24th pick, you would think all the top 5s would be gone by then.

    I think its great that Calgary got Backlund. I remember he did very well and I do believe he was the top scorer on Sweden during the juniors. Chereponov was a great steal for the NYR as well as the Penguin's picking up Esposito.

    I cannot wait for Backlund and Taratukhin to enter the Flames team. The Flames players were even excited with Taratukhin's playmaking and youth from last year.

    Ok my source says.....Flames sign Ryan Smyth to a 4 year $22million contract. Bertuzzi will sign in the 1.2 million/year range. Hamrlik and Stuart are gone. Flames will look for another defenceman somewhere.

    Conversations like this can be intense.

    Don't forget about the trade rumors of Tanguay heading to Montreal. Definitely don't want to see this happen...

    Regehr might go. He wants out...or is going to be "given out." A few sources have said that the Flames will move Regehr to dump some salary, if Smyth is signed. Penguins are interested. NY Islanders have also expressed interest in Hamrlik.

    It would be sad to see Regehr go, as I think he's a good, young defenseman. Very solid.

    Oh, I can hardly wait till July 1st!

    Whoa, I just had a weird dream where the Flames signed Schumacher, which was a huge deal as a defenceman because Regehr got traded. I'm glad to see this isn't true (yet), and if you have never heard of Schumacher you're not crazy - he doesn't exist.

    In other news, how sick would a Tangauy-Briere-Iginla line be?

    Can't really complain about that. Though he didn't produce a lot of goals/assists, I liked Primeau's effort when he got there too. Hopefully he'll be able to add to his numbers a bit more this season for us.
