Mikael Backlund headlines the list of players taking the ice starting Monday afternoon at the Saddledome, as the Calgary Flames get set for their annual development camp. With 32 players attending, it's a chance to see exactly where the Flames feeder system is at, and what we might be able to look forward to.

It was a meeting of the ages, as for the second time, FlamesNation superstar Kent Wilson joined FlamesNation...guy...Pat Steinberg on Fan 960 airwaves. It happened at the fateful time of 1:45 pm Thursday afternoon, and the gold standard of radio was set for years to come.
None of that is true, other than Kent joining me Thursday, but it's the second of many more radio hits to come.

According to new Flames Assistant General Manager Jay Feaster, talks are not going at a promising pace when it comes to a new contract for defenceman Ian White. It seems more and more likely that the two sides will end up meeting on July 30th in Toronto for salary arbitration. What that means for the Flames is yet to be determined.

Kent wrote a great piece last week analyzing Calgary's strength and depth on the blueline, asserting that decisions will need to be made ahead of opening night in October.

No offence to Brian McGrattan and Jamal Mayers, but there were three pending free agent players Flames fans were most interested in when it comes to their future destinations. Of those three, Craig Conroy, Eric Nystrom and Chris Higgins, only the former remains on the free agent market. So how will the fits be for Higgins and Nystrom in their new locales? And where, if anywhere, will Conroy end up?
