Now get a Bennett deal done at $2.5MM for two years, Lazar at $1.25MM for one year and the Flames should still have about $3.5MM of cap space.

would have prefered 3 years, but the wizard does it again, keeping the AAV low.

This is a fantastic deal. I wonder how much the Flames believing in him, and being on a young promising team worked to lower the price.

For Ferland he's a wonderful success over your demons story.

For the Flames, in a world of "pay for potential" glad to see they avoided that.

In short: "Brad is a wizard. Ferls is a good guy." Can't get much more Calgary than that.

Sounds like a 45 year old Jagr amount of money.

Love this signing. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Ferly is a beast and if he can stick on the top line RW this season at that price, Flames are in great shape.

Wow, 1.75 AAV? For real?

Treliving works his magic again.

He's going to be an expensive contract in 2 years.

I mean, two Stanley cups and two 50+ point seasons...it'll be expensive

But by then the Flames can deal Brouwer and afford this higher priced Ferly!

That would be my one remark as well - that 3rd year would've been nice because then as Ferly comes up for an extension, Frolik and Brouwer both come off the cap.

Hoping Bennett gets 3 years to avoid that cap crunch.

I think I had him at 1.85 on a two year deal, so this is a pretty good rate if true.

If Ferland can stay motivated and make the most out of the tools he has, he can really make himself a lot of money in the NHL. Big bodies who can keep pace in todays game and shoot like he can are tough to come by.

If he plays so well that he walks ala Kristian Huselius for a big deal in two years, the Flames will be big time winners here.
