1. Flames lose inconsequential defenseman, still have several lying about
This is what qualifies as news in early August except when a prospect maybe or maybe not punches someone out in front of a bar.
To bastardize a quote from "Love Story:" What can you say about Clay Wilson? His jump to the KHL is more or less of no consequence except that it voids his current contract, which was a one-way deal to ensure he got paid his full $525,000 when he's still bussing it in Abbotsford.

1. The Jankowski decision
So Mark Jankowski is going to forego the USHL and head straight to Providence College and the best top-to-bottom college hockey conference in the NCAA. People seem more or less thrilled by this decision.

1. Now things are moving
Shea Weber? Locked up. Rick Nash? Finally traded. Shane Doan? Came out and set a deadline for the Coyotes to figure everything out or else he's gone.

1. Nothing happening
Apart from introducing Roman Cervenka yesterday, and revealing that the organization considers him a center for some reason, and also admitting that they're closing in on the 50-contract limit for some reason I can't understand, the Flames have absolutely nothing going on. It's all very quiet.

1. The Backlund deal
As you all know I have been hyper-critical of the Flames' contract decisions in this offseason — Wideman, enough said — and while I would love to continue to be outraged over this kind of stuff, frankly, the Backlund deal is very, very good.
