This may have slid by without notice in the wake of the Erixon stuff, but Bob McKenzie noted today that the Flames are going to announce the hiring of Craig Hartsburg as an associate coach at some point in the near future.

Most of Wednesday's reaction to Calgary's trade of Tim Erixon to New York was emotional and, well, negative. Understandably at that. The Flames lost their best prospect and a guy that could have given them some important roster flexibility heading into the coming season, which sucks, plain and simple. I come away from the day frustrated at the situation, but unable to paint the organization with a fail coloured brush...which may be the most annoying thing of all.

Ain't much left to say about the Vancouver Canucks at this point. We have picked them to lose three rounds in a row and have suffered in the Playoff Preductions Project as a result. Still we would rather be dead last in the pool than correctly predict the Canucks will move on to the next round in the playoffs. We stand by our convictions.
Bruins over Canucks. Believe that.

While much of the hockey world is enthralled with Winnipeg and the Stanely Cup finals, Flames fans will be glued to twitter and the radio awaiting the suddenly not-at-all guaranteed signing of #1 prospect Tim Erixon. As of the time of this article, Feaster has just 7.5 hours to ink Erixon. If that does happen, the 20-year old will re-enter the draft where he'll no doubt be snapped up in short order.
