1. The new guy
That thing we've been saying all summer about the Flames' right wing depth being up to one's ankles in a best-case scenario was made a little bit more comfortable over the past week with the addition of Devin Setoguchi to the lineup.

The Flames did their best to make a splash on July 1st this year. Signing Mason Raymond and Jonas Hiller were both moves that were widely applauded as sensible pickups for decent dollar amounts. However, there was a third signing that fateful day.
The Flames signed Engelland for three years and an average of $2.9 million per (about 400k more than Glencross will be making this year btw) in a move that was largely regarded as one of the biggest head-scratchers of the day.
If not just out of a masochistic desire to pick scabs, lets let's get to meet Deryk (sic) Engelland!

The American Hockey League released its schedule for the 2014-15 season today, and in a great big shocker, the schedule of the Calgary Flames' AHL farm team was greatly improved by taking all that money from the city of Abbotsford and moving closer to the rest of the league's teams.

The usual small bit of mid-week apprehension has slightly dissipated, as the Calgary Flames have announced the signing of forward Lance Bouma to a one-year contract.
It was the final piece of business left before the Flames begin rookie camp on September 11. No terms were immediately available beyond the one-year term. We're left to presume it's a "show-me" contract similar to that signed by Paul Byron, if only because that would make some sense.
