Last season was an offensive nightmare for the Calgary Flames, we all know that. Now that we look back on the season that was and get set for the upcoming campaign, we can delve a little further into who made eachother tick (and who didn't). When doing some number crunching, two specific forward duo's ended up doing some pretty good work.

With all this not-so-positive talk over the last few days surrounding names like Tim Jackman and Alex Tanguay, it's probably time to look at something definitevely positive from last season. Kent already put together a great analysis of Mark Giordano's breakout season, and now I'll look at the career season for Flames forward Rene Bourque.

It was one of the scariest moments I can remember watching hockey. Flames forward Daymond Langkow suffered a neck injury on a seemingly innocent looking play early in the second period of a game in Minnesota on March 21st. The immediate good news was delivered shortly after Langkow left the ice, in that he was moving around. However, the injury would end Langkow's season, and it has put in doubt his return to start the upcoming season. But from who I've talked to over the last few weeks, things seem to be looking up, which is only good news for the Flames.

The Calgary Flames have signed free agent forward Craig Conroy to a one year, two way contract, basically ensuring Conroy will get to 1000 games in a Flames uniform. The deal is for the league minimum salary, and with what he brings on and off the ice, there is little downside to it.

We all knew Vesa Toskala wouldn't be a member of the Calgary Flames for this upcoming season, as GM Darryl Sutter said as much following the season. However, it now seems Vesa won't find employment period in the NHL, as various reports have him bolting for the Swedish Elite League.
