Sure, the Flames might be in a rebuild - but that doesn't mean they should suck intentionally. The UFA market looks thin, but for the Flames, there's quite a bit of meat on the bone. With prospects such as Sven Baertschi, John Gaudreau, Bill Arnold, Max Reinhart and Mark Jankowski developing in their various leagues, there's some roster room for the Flames over the next couple of years.

Yesterday we asked readers network-wide to vote their choices for the first 10 slots in this year’s entry draft. The results are in; which teams landed which players?

1. This is it, huh?
I kind of can't believe last night was Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. Even if you think it ends up being a long series (and I do; I took Bruins in seven), that means only two weeks left of the season at most. June 26, a Wednesday, is the date of that Game 7, if necessary. And that feels really weird. Obviously this is the deepest into June the league has gone. Even Game 7 of the 1994 Cup Final, itself similarly delayed by a lengthy work stoppage, went until June 14, making that game 19 years ago tomorrow.

We don’t know much about Mark Cundari.

A few weeks back, Elliotte Friedman noted that the New York Islanders are making it known around the league that they are willing to give up "something" to any team willing to trade for Rick Dipietro's contract (and presumably use a compliance buy out to make it go away).
The Flames are uniquely positioned to pull something like that off. The organization has deep pockets, no cap concerns (in case they want to keep the guy on the roster for some reason) and an urgent need for whatever futures the Islanders would be willing to give up.
