Pretty clear the #Flames are looking for a bridge type contract in the 1-3 year range. Makes sense for both sides.— Pat Steinberg (@Fan960Steinberg) July 11, 2013
With the powers that be organizing themselves around the prospect development camp in town, a few bits of info are trickling out through the usual channels. One such nugget was the recent news that Calgary has offered TJ Brodie a pair of potential deals: a one year contract and a slightly longer, bridge-type deal in the same realm as Mikael Backlund's recent contract.

We recently wrapped up FN's ranking of the Flames top-15 prospects under 24. TJ Brodie topped the list, while Mark Jankowski came in at #15.
We'll re-order things next summer and I'm sure that list will include new guys like Sean Monahan, Emile Poirier and Morgan Klimchuk. For now, we'll look at the other hopefuls who didn't quite make the cut for various reasons this year.

It appears the Flames are finished window shopping for UFA's. Word is the club hasn't even bothered contacting Mason Raymond and probably the only other worthwhile player on the market given Calgary's needs is Mikhail Grabovski. Naturally, there hasn't been even a whisper that the team has any interest at all. So, absent any left field trades, what you see is likely what you get when it comes to the roster.

For those of you who aren't still embroiled in the McGrattan post below (which I think takes the shortest post/longest comment string award by a mile), share your hopes, fears and thoughts today as the free agent frenzy gets underway.
