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.

So, the NHL unveiled their plans for the Heritage Classic at McMahon Stadium on Wednesday afternoon, an event we will get into later on this week at FlamesNation. The Calgary Flames used Curtis Glencross, Cory Sarich and Steve Staios as their faces at McMahon, which I thought was slightly amusing. Two of those names (Staios and Sarich) have been extremely popular names this summer when it comes to where the Flames could trim salary...maybe it is wishful thinking?

A week of Calgary Flames development camp has come to an end, and for all us hockey junkies starved for the sound of skate blades hitting the ice, it was a pretty darn good week. While it was tough to get any accurate reads on where exactly the players are at this point, it was still fun to watch and make some observations.
