    Calgary Flames TIDBITS & QUICK HITS!

    Post by Riprock on Mon Nov 01, 2010 9:42 am

    Thought I would start up a new thread similar to the Ottawa thread for the other Canadian team in red out West.

    - Daymond Langkow's career is in jeopardy. Last year Langkow took a puck and a hit to the neck, almost in stereo, causing a serious neck injury. He's been having a hard time on the road to recovery and is experiencing numbness in his lower body.

    This would be devastating for any player, but some might see this as a blessing for the Flames cap wise.

    - With Gio signing that big contract, speculation surrounding Ian White is getting hot. Talk is that contract negotiations aren't going well and that they see him as expendable. Could be trade bait.

    Here's the incident from March of last year with Langkow.

    What's the deal with Calgary ? they should be better than they are now.

    To a casual observer it seems like Brent Sutter is being tuned out over there. What kind of a coach makes Iginla suck ??

    The coach who has his pick of O.Jokinen or Matt Stajan as the top line center?

    Apparently this is the situation with Erixon. He wants to stay in Sweden one more season, and Feaster cannot afford to waste a signing on a guy not available to his team next season.

    So you risk losing one of the best prospects you have for that? They are in worse shape than I thought.

    Gotta be more to it than that. They have contract spaces open, you can't risk losing your best prospect over that.

    This may not sound very nice, but I hope that they do lose him and he goes back into the draft. Another blue-chip defenseman in the draft improves our chances of getting to choose between a couple good forwards.

    Definitely, especially considering people who know him well say he could go top 10 again, or even higher. Maybe we could flip our 2nd rounder for him tonight and sign him tomorrow morning? Or even a 2nd + Wiercioch? If he'd agree to a contract of course.

    Yeah he'd make Wiercioch expendable.

    Diddle me, they have over 50 contracts. It goes by THIS year's contracts. For example a UFA is still considered a contract until July 1 - FAIL!

    So that's it then? Erixon back in the draft?

    No, not yet. The Erixon contract would be for NEXT season, so by the time the contract kicks in, the UFAs would be OFF Calgary's books. Or that's what everyone's trying to figure out - because damn this is huge if they lose him.

    But the deadline is indeed 5 pm today?
