It may be the hottest rumour on Internet sites, but forget about Mike Comrie and the Edmonton Oilers kissing and making up. "It ain't happening ... he ain't coming here," said a well-informed source. "Mike doesn't fit any need that we have right now."

Is there a fanbase that gets teased and then rejected more than Edmonton Oilers faithful? I honestly don't think so.

There could be a new French Connection in the works, as RDS is reporting that the Tampa Bay Lightning have agreed to terms of a contract with Alex Tanguay pending a physical.

There go the dreams of getting back Tanguay for cheap. Long shot, I know. It'll be interesting to see how much he signed for. Suddenly Tampa Bay doesn't look too bad...

In the final week of the regular season, Phaneuf tore a muscle in his back. He also admitted injuring his sternum during the playoff series against the Chicago Blackhawks, but speculation that he had been playing hurt wafted around the Pengrowth Saddledome long before that. No surgery was required for his sternum injury and after a summer of rest and relaxation, he's ready to get back on track.

No surgery for Dion this off-season.

I greatly prefer Calgary’s summer to Edmonton’s but I do find it a little curious that they seem to have spent a great deal of time bolstering their strengths (their group of defencemen, which was amongst the best in the NHL is now probably the best and I don’t think Keenan was such a bad coach) while ignoring what seems to me to be an obvious problem (Kiprusoff has had two years that were well off the level of play he’s being paid for) and (apparently) banking on some stuff that seems unlikely to repeat (Bourque’s goal scoring).

Tyler Dellow echoes some of my sentiments in a recent post.

Calgary Flames General Manager Darryl Sutter announced today that the Flames have resigned forward Dustin Boyd.

The final domino falls. Let the great line-up debate commence!

Calgary Flames General Manager Darryl Sutter announced today the signing of forward Kris Chucko.

Mirtle is the first to announce the Chucko signing. Where for art thou Dustin Boyd?

In a summer when more than 150 free agents went on the auction block on July 1, Brian McGrattan may have been one of the least likely players to find another NHL home. Quietly, and away from the spotlight with the equally troubled Phoenix Coyotes, the 27-year-old enforcer struggled last season in more ways than one, failing at first to dress for games and then, according to members of the team’s staff, missing practice.

James Mirtle writes about Brian McGrattan in today's Globe and Mail.

The Calgary Flames have tendered qualifying offers to pending restricted free agents Dustin Boyd and Kris Chucko. In 71 game last season, Boyd notched 11 goals and 21 points. A third-round pick of the Flames in 2004, the Winnipeg native is expected to play a bigger role next season with the pending departure of sniper Michael Cammalleri.

Boyd and Chucko return. Cracknell and Seitsonen do not.

Todd Bertuzzi is beginning to wonder if no news is bad news when it comes to the Calgary Flames. "I haven’t heard anything from them," Bertuzzi said Thursday from his off-season home near Kitchener, Ont. "I haven’t spoken to them. They haven’t contacted me. They haven’t called. And I didn’t talk to them at the end of the year, either. "So I’m kind of in the dark about anything that’s going on."

Yay!
