Brent Sutter and Jay Feaster reduced the training camp clutter today, cutting some 19 players. Most aren't terribly surprising, with a huge bulk of the guys being assigned to Abbotsford.

Pat Steinberg has a good overview of the Flames home game here. Unlike him, though, I wasn't at the Saddledome rubbing shoulders with the important people. Instead I stayed at home and switched between internet feed and SNET broadcast so I could catch as much action as possible.

I dropped by the final training camp practice today. It turned out to be an intrasquad game which garnered some limited though interesting observations of some of the players involved.

RFA negotiations have been a bit of a big deal this summer, moreso than usual at least. Because RFA's have limited leverage and a single team holds rights to negotiate with the player, deals are usually all but inevitable if both parties are even passingly interested in getting a contract done.

With the propsect tournament drawing to a close, the Calgary Flames main camp is right around the corner. Practies and such start this coming weekend while the first exhibition game goes September 20th in a split-squad game in/vs Vancouver. The rest of the pre-season schedule is here.
