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.

It would probably be fair to say that an arbitration hearing is something you want to avoid if possible. Numerous players have done so this offseason, and Ian White did the same this morning, signing a one year contract with the Calgary Flames worth $2,999,995. So, the two sides avoid arbitration, which might end up being the best case for both sides.

Wednesday on ice sessions have wrapped up as Calgary Flames development camp continues at the Saddledome. While it's tough to get an accurate read watching drills and power skating, the FlamesNation crew continues to post their observations. I've got thoughts on Mitch Wahl, Greg Nemisz and Tim Erixon (pictured) after today's sessions.
