News
Devils coach Pete DeBoer is not 100 percent sure free agent signee Michael Cammalleri will play with the top line this year according to the Bergen Record.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
DeBoer actually said that he is not sold on Travis Zajac, Jaromir Jagr and Cammalleri as his top line and one has to assume that Cammalleri would be the odd man out. Zajac and Jagr had pretty good chemistry last season. Still, Cammalleri was brought in to help the Devils score, so he is still the best bet to occupy a top-line spot.

prohockeytalk.com

Impact
"I've talked to Brad [Treliving, new Flames GM] a few times now and my agent has also been in touch with him numerous times," Glencross said. "The plan is they want to get the ball rolling after the [Aug 1.] arbitration thing with [Joe] Colborne, and get to talking. Hopefully we can get something done sooner rather than later, and not have to worry about a contract during the season." Glencross, 31, put up good offensive numbers through an injury-plagued 2013-14 season, with 12 goals and 24 points in 38 games. From 2010-12, Glencross averaged 25 goals and 45 points a season.

Joe Colborne wants to avoid his arbitration hearing on August 1 if possible.
Calgary Sun

Impact
The hearing would be moot if the Flames and Colborne agree to terms before it starts. The arbitration process can be tough on a player as he has to sit there and listen to all the reasons the team feels like he's not worth as much as he claims. "I've seen a few guys go through the whole situation," Colborne said. "I've heard when you go in there and your agents are talking, you feel like the biggest human alive. You feel like you're a superhero. And then the team comes in and you don't feel quite so big after all, and you come out of like you've been through the ringer."

"I think I have a lot of wasted energy in my stride, and it's just not very efficient, so that's something I'm try to fix up. Just trying to become faster and, overall, a better skater."

Bill Arnold has been focused on losing a bit of weight to get faster.
Calgary Sun

Impact
Arnold, who is 6-foot-0, has gone from 205 pounds during the 2013-14 campaign to 197 now. "I feel a little faster. The feet are a little faster, and my conditioning is better than it has been in the past," Arnold said. "But I don't want to get too excited about it, because I've still got two big months of summer that I have to keep working really hard for." Arnold had 14 goals and 53 points in 40 games with Boston College last season and was also solid without the puck. He's a bit of a long shot to make the team's opening game roster, but his defensive abilities might lead to him getting in as a bottom-six forward.

Calgary Sun

Impact
"It's really picked up over the past year-and-a-half, but it's still got a ways to go before it's NHL-ready," Smith said. "A lot of work has to be done." After being taken with the 54th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Smith isn't expected to make the Flames' opening game roster. At 6-foot-7, 220-pounds though, his size makes him a potentially very appealing option down the road.

"I've just got to make sure I follow in their footsteps and do what they've been doing. They said you need to be strong in your legs, definitely work out your legs. And you don't need to be too big in your upper body because you won't be able to stickhandle that well. Just a lot of great pointers from a lot of great guys and I really appreciate it. It's just doing the little things right, keep working out, making sure I'm skating and getting stronger. Obviously I'm going to get stronger. I have to make sure I keep working out and working hard."

Flames prospect Johnny Gaudreau has been chosen as one of five finalists for the ESPY award - ESPN's version of the Academy Awards - as the top male college athlete.
Calgary Sun

Impact
The honour is a slam dunk for Gaudreau, an offensive dynamo with 36 goals and 80 points in 40 games for Boston College before turning pro for the Flames season finale. The winger, who'll celebrate his 21st birthday next month, has a legitimate shot to be a full-time NHLer as early as next season. His size is an issue - the Flames are fooling nobody by listing him as 5-foot-9 - but Gaudreau's wizardry with the puck is obvious. After scoring a goal in his NHL debut, Gaudreau joined the U.S. team for the world championships and racked up two goals and 10 points in eight games. "It gave me a lot more confidence," Gaudreau said. "I learned a lot out there playing with NHL guys, playing against NHL guys. Getting to play against (Alex) Ovechkin and (Jaromir) Jagr - I think Jagr was playing in the NHL before I was even born - is something pretty special. I think it's going to help me in the long run."

Like we told him, he brings an element that we maybe don't have (in the minors). We have lots of skill down there now. If he does well, we think he could be a guy like Roussel, moving his way up."

The Calgary Flames have signed Jonas Hiller to a two-year, $9 million contract.
Rotoworld.com

Impact
This is an excellent signing for the Flames as he can handle a lot of shots, which he will undoubtedly see in Calgary. The deal is modest as compared to some of the contracts that have been handed out Tuesday, and the Flames have done well to shore up their goaltending trhough the 2016-17 season. Hiller will post strong save percentage numbers but his goals against average and win totals may be a little less than league average and as a result will be better suited as a second goalie in fantasy pools going forward.

This, of course is dependent on injuries, but the Flames want to pick up another goalie during free agency to go with Karri Ramo and give Ortio time to develop in the minors. Ortio saw some NHL action in 2013-14 as the Flames had plenty of injuries between the pipes and he played well with a 4-4-0 record to go with a 2.16 GAA and a .906 save percentage.
Flames take huge Hunter Smith in 2nd round | 06/29/2014 7:18 AM
News
The Calgary Flames picked six foot, seven inch Hunter Smith with the 54th pick of the 2014 Draft.
Calgary Sun

Impact
The huge winger started to put it together in 2013-14 after picking up only one assist in 30 games for Oshawa of the OHL in the 2012-13 season. He had 16 goals and 40 points plus 100 penalty minutes last season and then followed it up with 11 points in 12 post-season games. "I think it's a perfect fit - a big, strong, power winger. I'm going to get into the corners and I'm going to mess it up out there," said the nephew of former NHLer Brad "Motor City" Smith. "I'm really excited. I think Calgary's a great fit for me in the West. The West is big and big hitting, so I'm excited to get to development camp and get going." Smith will need at least a few seasons in the minors before he will be able to contribute at the NHL level.
Flames to give Brandon Bollig bigger role | 06/29/2014 7:07 AM
News
Look for the Calgary Flames to give the recently acquired Brandon Bollig a bigger role than he had in Chicago.
Calgary Sun

Impact
Bollig saw fourth line action with the Blackhawks and still managed seven goals and 14 points last season while dishing out 203 hits. "The more you play, the better you feel, I think," Bollig said. "I loved my role here in Chicago, but when you change teams, you get the new look and new coaches think different things about certain roles and certain players. I'm excited to see where this takes me and, hopefully, expand my role and have a good exciting season up in Calgary. My time here in Chicago was amazing, and I'll never forget it. But it's going to be fun to help rebuild that organization." Look for Bollig to go from 10 minutes per game of action to 12-14, and get 12-15 goals and 25-30 points.
Flames quire Bollig for 83 pick in draft | 06/28/2014 12:00 PM
News
The Calgary Flames have acquired Brandon Bollig from the Chicago Blackhawks for the 83rd pick in this year's entry draft.
NBC Chicago

Impact
With the salary cap set at $69 million, the Hawks were forced to shed some salary. Bollig just signed a 3-year extension at $1.25 million per season and the Hawks just couldn't afford to keep him with the cap $2 million less than what it could have been. Bollig, who registered a mere 14 points in 125 NHL games with the Hawks, may be able to land a slightly bigger role in Calgary than he had on a loaded Chicago squad but he still should not be high on anyone's fantasy radar.
Calgary dream comes true for Sam Bennett | 06/28/2014 8:55 AM
News
Sam Bennett was hoping to become a Calgary Flame.
Calgary Sun

Impact
The gritty center from the Kingston Frontenacs, who often is compared to Kingston legend Doug Gilmour, got his wish Friday night at the NHL draft, when the Flames selected him with their fourth overall pick. "Before the draft, I had visited Calgary actually and when I got home, I went and saw my parents and was like, `Mom, Dad, I want to be a Calgary Flame and I want to play in Calgary.' " Bennett said. "To have that come true is unbelievable." After selecting Sean Monahan in the first round one year ago, the Flames hope to have a solid one-two punch up the middle.
Flames take Sam Bennett #4 overall | 06/27/2014 7:37 PM
News
The Calgary Flames have selected Kingston Frontenac star forward Sam Bennett with the fourth overall pick in Friday's NHL entry draft.
Rotoworld.com

Impact
Sam Bennett is among the class of 2014's fiercest competitors. The six-foot, 178 pound center is an elite playmaker and ferocious forechecker, keeping opponents consistently on their toes. Bennett had a breakout season in the 2013-14 OHL season, notching 36 goals and 91 points in just 57 games. He has the enviable ability to elevate his play in crunch time, using guts and talent to be a game breaker. The 18 year-old plays in all situations, and many believe he has the tools and drive to be a Jonathan Toews-type player. Bennett is a quick, creative and versatile forward, able to draw in opponents when he has the puck, and then make difficult passes through ifted vision and awareness. Bennett needs to get bigger and stronger, but it should not take long for him to make the leap to the NHL. He will make a dynamite one-two punch with Sean Monahan, possibly as early as this upcoming season.
Flames haven't gotten the right offer yet | 06/27/2014 9:10 AM
News
The Calgary Flames are open to trading the fourth overall pick to move up or down, but they haven't gotten any offers they're willing to pull the trigger on.
Calgary Herald

Impact
"It has to make sense," Flames GM Brad Treliving. "I'd love to have great things to tell you guys but we're not going to do things just to do things. They have to make sense. We could do a deal right now if we wanted to, if we wanted to start putting our young players and picks (in). Trust me, when you're sitting with five picks in the first three rounds, those are valuable assets --- a lot of people are looking for those." There's been a lot of talk about teams trading top picks in this draft, likely in part because this draft is seen as underwhelming when it comes to the top-end talent. We should see some major moves on Friday.

Ward had been with the Flames organization as the Abbotsford head coach for the last three years and had Brian Burke's vote of confidence. But Burke then hired Brad Treliving as the Flames GM and it was decided the Calgary would go in a different direction as far who was coaching their AHL team. "As you know, Brian Burke and certain people had come out and said good things about the job we'd done and the direction we were going," Ward said. "So, I'd made plans in my head to move forward . . . my heart was going to Glens Falls in the process, for sure. But until you sign on the dotted line, you understand in this business that things could change and things did change. All you ask for is respect and I thought Brad was unbelievable."

Impact
Wolf, who agreed to a one-year, two-way deal, had 40 points and 152 penalty minutes in 48 games in Germany in 2013-14. "He fits the development map that we want to go down," Flames GM Brad Treliving said. "He brings some attitude to the game. But for a lot of those guys coming over here, it's always, 'How is it going to translate?' His game, as opposed to the more typical European player, is maybe . . . more suited to the North American small-rink game." We wouldn't count on him doing much offensively if he makes the Flames' roster, but he will probably spend a fair amount of time in the sin bin.

The Flames farm team in Abbotsford was knocked out of the playoffs in four games as Baertschi managed only one assist. His future is bright but he needs to show that he is still an offensive threat and capable of being a top six forward as the Flames drafted him 13th overall in the 2011 Draft.

Treliving's old boss, Coyotes GM Don Maloney, doesn't have a problem believing that. "It wasn't a situation where we would talk on a daily basis.

But for us here in Phoenix, I'm really proud and happy for him and his family. When you work as hard as he did, he deserves an opportunity to run an NHL club."

Sedin was taken to hospital but was later released, while Byron received a five-minute major for boarding. "It's been a rough year, but it's embarrassing to coach against (Hartley)," Tortorella said. "Some of the things that went on when Danny was hurt, it's embarrassing." Added Tortorella: "I don't like the way he does business. I don't like him, and eventually, I guess why I am talking about it in this way is because I need to protect my players, and a lot of people don't understand that. So I'll just leave it at that. I don't know why I opened it up. It aggravates the (bleep) out of me." The bad blood between Tortorella and Hartley dates back to Jan. 18, when the Flames put tough guys Brian McGrattan and Kevin Westgarth in their starting lineup against the Canucks, who countered with muscle of their own, and the result was a five-on-five line-brawl at the opening faceoff.
