The National Hockey League roster deadline is this coming today at 3 p.m. MT. At that time, teams must be both compliant with the league's roster requirements and with their salary cap requirements. Now that the Calgary Flames have signed everybody, we have a much clearer picture of how they're going to sneak under the salary cap.

At long last, it's over.
After qualifying just four restricted free agents back in June - over three months ago - all four of them have been signed.
Johnny Gaudreau has his second contract with the Flames. It's for six years, and it's worth an annual average value of $6.75 million: Mark Giordano's contract to a tee.
It is, unequivocally, a total steal.

A busy holiday Thanksgiving Monday has gotten a bit busier. The Calgary Flames announced this morning that they've released left wing Chris Higgins from his professional tryout agreement with the club.
The move leaves them with 26 players on their roster: two goalies, nine defensemen and 15 forwards.

We've been waiting for a while for the good names to start showing up on the waiver wire. On Monday, it happened.

#Isles will be placing PA Parenteau on waivers today, according to a source. Certainly a surprise there.— Arthur Staple (@StapeNewsday) October 10, 2016
Word is P.A. Parenteau is hitting the waiver wire today and the Flames should seriously consider picking up his $1.25M contract.
The 33-year-old RWer is no spring chicken and he doesn't seem to get a lot of respect around the league, but his results are always above board and he fills a very real need on the Flames roster.
