Look at Reider, sitting at 0 goals again. It's all his fault

Not that I want the flames to sign him, but I hope Toby scores a bunch of goals in the pre-season just for the chuckles.

If Toby Rieder can score 12 to 14 goals, we'll probably make the playoffs.

Rieder and Smith-Pelley are both super intriguing. It's gonna suck when Rinaldo is the only one signed though...

Rieder as the 12th/13th forward with Czarnik would make me smile.

Get the Oilers stink off him, that boy can skate and prior to the Edmonton cone of incompetence wrapped it's greasy fingers around his neck, he was on the rise.

Good bunch of invites.

The Flames don't have many contracts, at least compared to other organizations. I wouldn't be surprised to see a few actually get signed.

Pretty decent set of PTOs IMO.

Rinaldos a dirtbag, but having him there for preseason I think will make some players think twice before cheapshotting anyone trying to make a name for themselves.

Agree.

The guy can skate at high level and in the NHL right now that is a huge plus for your 13th forward.

He scored 0 goals for the Flames last year and we made playoffs.

DSP and Rinaldo add grease/truculence with Tkachuk still unsigned.

In the meantime, we should slot Rieder as 1RW and see if he can score 20, purely for the Chiadenfreude...

In my mind...Rinaldo is the player with the unreal top corner wrist shot...

In reality Rinaldo is probably a bit of a slow suck...

A lot of those guys could actually be 2nd and third liners on the Oilers

Rinaldo... woof. The hardest of passes.

Pass on the others as well (at least the NHL level... AHL deals would be fine).
