Gutsy Move By Feaster: Flames Sign C Ryan O’Reilly to Offer Sheet

Gutsy Move By Feaster: Flames Sign C Ryan O’Reilly to Offer Sheet

The Flames must have had a tough time convincing another NHL team to part ways with a competent centerman for their glut of defencemen. Visiting Colorado tonight, Calgary also made a splash in the visiting city by tendering an offer sheet to Ryan O’Reilly which he accepted. Because O’Reilly is a restricted free agent the Avalanche are awarded compensation based on his RFA class which means Calgary’s 1st and 3rd round picks. But before that, the Avs have 7 days…

Flames Sign Roman Cervenka from KHL to Add Depth at Center

Flames Sign Roman Cervenka from KHL to Add Depth at Center

There were few rumors that picked up on this transaction before it happened. Last week the Flames added depth down the middle for relatively little risk. Sure, Flames fans were scoffing at the 3.7 million price tag of an unproven European hockey player, but that contract is incentive laden. I for one know nothing about Cervenka, know he played one good playoff series in the KHL, and looked better when playing with the likes of Jaromir Jagr last season. Think…

Quiet Trades Over Past Few Days: Morrison Out

Quiet Trades Over Past Few Days: Morrison Out

The All-Star break was anything but for Flames brass as they made two deals that opened a roster spot on the big club and added some depth on the farm. Firstly, in a surprising twist, Brendan Morrison saw his time with the Flames end after being traded to Chicago in exchange for minor-league vet defenceman Brian Connelly. The move gives the Flames some cap room and another spot to potentially bring up certain contracts from the minor leagues (Krys Kolanos…

Mega-Deal: Flames Re-Acquire Mike Cammalleri for Rene Bourque

Mega-Deal: Flames Re-Acquire Mike Cammalleri for Rene Bourque

The Calgary Flames actually ‘won’ a trade. How about that?! Calgary acquired: Michael Cammalleri (LW) Karri Ramo (G) (apparently the top goalie in Europe right now…..) 5th round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft from Montreal Montreal in return receivs: Rene Bourque (RW) Patrick Holland 2nd round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft The difference in salary is about 2.7 million in Montreal’s favour.

Daymond Langkow Traded to Phoenix for Lee Stempniak

Daymond Langkow Traded to Phoenix for Lee Stempniak

Why? Probably a salary dump. Calgary Flames have shed more salary by dumping Daymond Langkow’s 4.5 million salary in favour of a much lighter cap hit of 1.9 million. The new management is certainly putting their stamp on the team literally nixing many of the expensive contracts of the Darryl Sutter era. (Why wasn’t it Stajan though, oh right, no team is stupid enough to take him, mind you, Buffalo did take Kotalik….) Flames fans have few reasons to be…

Flames Signings: Leblond, Reinhart, Smith, Mikkelson

Flames Signings: Leblond, Reinhart, Smith, Mikkelson

The depth chart behind #1 & #2 defencemen Bouwmeester and Giordano is looking mighty thin. On the LW there’s TJ Brodie sitting #6…. Although he has skills is he ready for the big time? After Gio there’s Sarich with that veteran presence, Babchuk who’s played the easiest defensive minutes, and a bunch of new names like Butler, Mikkelson, Carson….. Some serious question marks remain on D for the Flames, one thing is for sure, we’ll be average at best back…

Alex Tanguay Resigned for 5 Years

Alex Tanguay Resigned for 5 Years

Maybe he should not have left in the first place. Alex Tanguay, coming off a great season where he played for cheap, has resigned with the Flames for five years. The deal was in place but couldn’t be made official until the FLames were bale to dump 7+ million in Regehr and Kotalik. The deal is reported to be worth around 18 million or 3.4 million per year, largely a steal for Tanguay who could’ve received more cash on the…

The Calgary Tower Back for Two Years

The Calgary Tower Back for Two Years

Flames Re-Sign Karlsson The Calgary Flames announced the signing of backup goaltender Henrik Karlsson to a two year one-way deal worth about 860K a year. Karlsson played in 17 games last season with the Flames, and despite a losing record, showed glimmers that he’s a competent backup. Karlsson, a native of Tumba, Sweden, was originally acquired by the Flames from San Jose at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for Calgary’s 6th round pick in the 2010 Draft. He…

Calgary Flames Sign Curtis Glencross to 4 year deal

Calgary Flames Sign Curtis Glencross to 4 year deal

The Herald is reporting that Glencross has signed a deal reported to be worth about 2.55 million a season. The signing means the Calgary Flames secured their third line winger who occasionally played up and certainly overachieved this year with over 20 goals. Is $2.55 the right money for Glencross? A couple things to consider. Players who score 20 goals can typically expect about what Glencross received, if not more. The question will be can the banner year be repeated?…

Calgary Flames Trade Deadline 2011: Carson off Waivers, Modin from Atlanta

Calgary Flames Trade Deadline 2011: Carson off Waivers, Modin from Atlanta

Trade deadline 2011 is here! It’s weird, two months ago we would’ve seen this day as a sell off of Flames asset. Today we see a team struggling for a playoff position and an acting-GM who doesn’t want to mess with the existing chemistry. That’s a tougher position than an all out sell off like Ottawa’s doing. Nonetheless, follow our tweets @flamesstamps for the latest updates regarding Calgary Flames trades and rumors. Updated additions after the jump.
