Read on the score app the Pens are still on the hunt for a third line C. Stajan retained for a pick makes sense with Lazar and Jankowski in the mix for the 4th line C spot. If the Flames want to sign Jagr moving out another veteran contract makes some sense.

I'm told that the #Flames are in on a number of UFA's forwards. Upshall, Vanek & Pirri are a few to name. #Oilers are also looking at Pirri.
This is the guy who had the latest "news" on the Jagr front:

#Flames wanna get Bennett done first, I'm sure Jagr will get done. There's no rush.

He doesn't know anything. He's played the rumor wave and gotten lucky a couple times. Now he's shotgun blasting ufas in hopes calgary acquires one. Nothing to see here from old bosco

Cannot believe that guys tweets always end up back there, he's such an wannabe insider it's painful. So many obvious red flags about the BS he's selling. If you go back to his facebook page he's now claiming to have a "wwe source' that's saying Jon Jones will sign with them for two years and face Brock Lesnar at wrestlemania haha, my lord.

Stop getting duped guys. it appears the CP twitter account follows him to. Sigh.

Well what else is Jon Jones going to do in the meantime?

I have nowhere else to put this, so I'll just state here that Todd Button is flying out of Calgary this morning. Let the speculation begin as to where he's heading.

Are you not the guy that chased who you thought was Jay Feaster into an airport bathroom?

You don't become the Ass Handler without chasing the occasional person into a bathroom.

I believe Feaster confirmed it was indeed him at the airport that day in an interview

No speculation needed, he's heading to the Czech Republic to get the deal signed.

Todd Button lives and mostly works in Toronto from what I understand.

Marc-Andre Fleury would have waived no-trade for the Flames

NEW YORK – Marc-Andre Fleury can admit now he was preparing for the possibility of becoming a Calgary Flame.

He’ll even go as far as to say that had Pittsburgh Penguins GM Jim Rutherford crafted a deal to send Fleury to the Flames at last season’s trade deadline, the 32-year-old goaltender would likely have waived the no-trade clause he has in his contract.

“I think so,” said Fleury while in New York for league meetings.

“I think Calgary is a great town and a great hockey team too. I think they’ll be very good again this year. But here I am.”

What could've been... But who knows, maybe Smith and Lack will be a good tandem for us.

And this is how rumors start. Here's how that story progressed:

I won't go into specifics, but I did take a brief look at one other opportunity before deciding that Tampa was the best fit for my family and I. The passionate online community of CalgaryPuck probably know better than anyone which position that was because they caught me catching a flight at the airport on my way to the interview.
Nice to see Feaster finally own up to this.

That's hilarious that he found out about that. That's one of my top 10 CP moments for sure.

The original interview is down, unfortunately, but I remember reading it at the time to confirm that Stryker's quote was made up. Would have been epic if it were true.

Mike Chambers‏Verified account @MikeChambers 11m11 minutes ago

Avalanche annual charity golf tournament this AM in Castle Pines. Matt Duchene not here. Story to come #Avs
Seems like there is a chance Duchene may be a no-show for Avs camp... (Sakic did state that he expects him to be at camp since he is under contract with the avs).

If he doesn't show up, what are the possible outcomes??? Do the Avs immediately have to suspend him? Now the Avs don't have to worry about this, but what would happen if they no longer met the cap floor in the event that duchene's cap number is not counted towards their cap if he's suspended by the team?


Sorry for the cap nerd questions, am just curious. Should be interesting how this plays out. Seems that a trade is inevitable within the next few weeks, right??

I say one of two things.

1. The asking price was not reasonable.

2. I call BS.
