    The last time we were favored in pre season rankings thanks to league topping D, we missed the playoffs.

    That was last last time.

    I'm talking about when we first signed Hamilton, the year after kicking the Canucks out round 1. The media had as pegged for best D in the league.

    Flames could have interest in Jagr: report
    Gulutzan as coach likely part of equation
    NHL

    That would be awesome. but does he still have it?
    Taking Foo spot?

    Jagr signing with Flames is picking up traction. One of my all-time faves.

    I think Foo will be spending majority of his time in the AHL this season.

    yah Jagr still clearly has it, hopefully not for too much money. Would be nice for flames to have some flexibility if they make an okay run and need a higher priced rental etc.

    Still no updated on Bennetts contract tho... curious what is going on there. Hopefully Foo cracks roster this year and continues his play from NCAA, otherwise they are looking short on Forward. Granted Jankowski must be getting close to the point of needing to make it or being forever stuck down

    I think $1mm a year for Jags with performance bonuses up to max of around $3.5 would make sense. Easier to manipulate cap space with bonuses as well, as opposed to a straight up $3.5mm contract. Curious to see how much space we have left after the rest of the lose ends are tied up.

    I don't think we have enough cap space to do 3.5m straight up. If that 3.7m rumor is accurate, I'd bet it would be around 2m salary + 1.7m bonuses.

    Holy Ken King Bombshell. anyone else following?

    The timing of it is interesting, as well as the rumors. Is the team moving? Will we ever see a new arena? Discuss.

    It is in response of Nenshi's election platform yesterday. Probably a big f u to turfing the West village plan and open up a position for a pro unlimited tax dollor for arena mayoral candidate.

    Just Nenshi being Nenshi.

    Now he is gonna find a way to make a deal, and then proclaim himself as the team's saviour. Election is like 6 weeks away. Could you imagine the uproar that would be caused if the flames announced they were leaving? Nenshi would be out of office so fast dodging bullets. Only safe place for him would be in Columbia where no one cares about hockey.

    Not sure where you got that from

    King said the Flames owners remain committed to staying in Calgary for now.

    "no longer perusing a new area in Calgary" pretty much spells it out.... "we'll stick around until our new arena is built somewhere else"

    They will end up playing in a new arena somewhere. Probably Quebec city.

    Except the NHL has stated multiple times no more teams in the east until the conferences are balanced
