Mackey is 23, a LHD from Illinois who played for Minnesota State

Poolman is 24, the brother of Jets dman Tucker Poolman, and is an LHD who played for UND

These signings should help the Flames' thinner-than-thin defense prospect ranks

From NHL.com

Quote:
Connor Mackey, Minnesota State University

Mackey (6-2, 200) was regarded by many as the cream of the free agent crop a year ago but decided to stay in school.

The Calgary Flames, Winnipeg Jets, Chicago Blackhawks and Columbus Blue Jackets are believed to be in the mix this time around. The 23-year-old junior defenseman, whose father David Mackey played six seasons in the NHL, has 22 points (five goals, 17 assists) in 30 games.

According to Servalli 28 of 31 NHL teams expressed interest in Mackey with at least 9 teams willing to burn off the first year of his ELC.

I think Mackey is a big get for the Flames AND they got him without burning the ELC.

Mackey is a big guy too - 6'3"

If Forbort walks and one of Kylington/Valimaki is traded I could see him fighting for the #6 spot

It depends on the age of the player as of Sept 15 in the year of when they sign their contract.

18-21 year old get 3 year ELC
22-23 year old get 2 year ELC
24 year old get 1 year ELC.

Mackey turns 24 on Sept 12. Poolman turns 25 in December

Interesting seeing the left side loaded up. Giordano and Valimaki arn't going anywhere IMO, so I wonder if this is a bullet in the chamber for Tre, concerning Hanafin and Kylington.

Both LHD, why are RHD rarer than rocking horse sh!#?

Good signings though, free prospects.

I could see Gio moving in the right situation. He still has value. But it wouldn’t help the expansion situation because I suspect he’d be unprotected anyway.

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger
Scouting report on @NHLFlames signings: Poolman is considered a hard defender with high character. Mackey may develop into a top 4 at some point. He’s a mobile Dman who can play against top players.

What do you mean about burning a year of ELC? His ELC is only one year and he'll hit UFA status at 27 regardless?
