Calgary and Brouwer were never a good mix and the signing will certainly go down as one of Brad Treliving's worst. After the 2015-16 season the Flames signed Brouwer to a four year, $18 million dollar contract and the results were never there. He played in 150 regular season games for Calgary over two seasons and collected only 47 points during that time frame. As a result of those numbers Calgary and Brouwer agreed to a two year buyout that paid him $1.5 million to no longer play for the Flames.
As of today's $1.5 million dollars being paid to Brouwer the buy-out deal is over and the Flames are no longer on the hook for anything in relation to Troy Brouwer. On Brouwer's end, it wasn't a bad deal at all. On the Flames end, it was terrible.
