According to Bob McKenzie, the Flames have put Ales Kotalik on re-entry waivers this morning. The move could be for the purposes of recalling him (unlikely) or to allow someone else to scoop him at half his current price for this year and next. If Kotalik does get claimed, the Flames will have $1.5M in dead cap space on their budget next season.
Also of interest is the fact that Nikolai Zherdev was placed on waivers by the Flyers today. The forever maligned russian actually has excellent underlying numbers in Philly this year so I don't know what the issue is with him, but he's a guy who could be worth a look for Calgary. It's a move Darryl Sutter never would have made, so if Feaster wants to start putting his own stamp on the team, claiming Zherdev would be a step in that direction.

Yet, This was a 1-0 game for the majoirty of the night, and the Flames were able to hang with a pretty good Boston team, a team many are pointing to as a contender out of the East. They played a fairly solid hockey game, and on this night, fell short.
