It's T-minus 2 hours with $7.5M in cap space remaining for the Calgary Flames. I've got a six pack of Anchor Summer Ale, my Calgary Flames jersey, and a tweetdeck column open with only Bob McKenzie and Darren Dreger.
Here's the major storylines today:
- Brad Richards- Who's going to overpay and attempt to subvert the cap for this years "top free agent"? So far the list is "every team with more than $2M in cap space"
- Every defenseman everywhere- Given the extremely thin UFA crop on D, we're going to see some absolutely nutty deals for guys like Hejda and the Wiz.
- #jagrwatch This is probably the dumbest storyline yet. We're talking about a 38 year old player who has seen very little in the way of real competition in years
So with all that, and the terrors that free agent signing day always bring to Flames fans, enjoy the thread and my impending lunacy. Note that all times are ET.
