Hunter Smith is a big, big dude.
When I met him at Calgary Flames development camp earlier this week, I was a bit taken aback at just how big he is. He's listed at 6'7" and 220 pounds, and he's every bit as big as advertised. He's also really excited to be a Calgary Flame, having joined the organization as the team's second second-round selection (54th overall) in June's NHL Draft.
Smith and I had a brief chat after one of the development camp on-ice sessions.

The first wave of free agent signings are done. Depth signings and subsequent moves are probably coming up in the next few weeks as we inch closer and closer to the end of summer and the beginning of camps.
But for now, here's where things stand for the Flames organizationally.

For us prospect honks, it's the most wonderful time of the year. The Calgary Flames' annual development camp continues this week (until Wednesday) at WInsport, giving Flames fans a rare glimpse with all of the team's junior and college prospects together at once.

When the deadline to tender qualifying offers to RFA's passed last week, many of us were disappointed that Paul Byron was not among those given offers by the Flames. That mistake has been rectified.

As many of you may know, while the Calgary Flames have been furthering their rebuild through various moves like drafting a 20 year old and signing Derek Engellend, I've been wandering through Europe.
As a result, it's been tough to write and get things out due
to the lack of internet. I have however, managed, one way or another, to keep up
with all the important maneuvers made by the team. I did watch the Draft live (on
Satellite Internet which is just as slow and expensive as it sounds) and most of
Free Agent Frenzy on cafe and hotel internet hotspots and I've bunch of
opinions on it all I'd like to share after the jump.
