While much of the hockey world is enthralled with Winnipeg and the Stanely Cup finals, Flames fans will be glued to twitter and the radio awaiting the suddenly not-at-all guaranteed signing of #1 prospect Tim Erixon. As of the time of this article, Feaster has just 7.5 hours to ink Erixon. If that does happen, the 20-year old will re-enter the draft where he'll no doubt be snapped up in short order.

Although today is May 30th, there is still no word from the Calgary Flames organization on the signing of Tim Erixon.

That's why it's so disturbing the 20-year old hasn't been inked yet.
