Dead as a doornail, isn't it? Kent remarked to me on Wednesday night that he couldn't remember a time where things got so quiet so quickly after July 1st, and I'm in accord. After the jump, we'll look through the thin gruel for morsels.

Flames fans these days are a nervous bunch. With all the movement and shakeups that the organization has gone through in the recent months, it’s certainly an understandable mindset to have. They just don’t know what to expect out of their team. In this turbulent time of trouble, some Flame fans have even expressed the blasphemy that the hated, vile rivals to the north, the Oilers, may finish higher than the Flames.
Well Flames fan, Domebeers.com, in the interest of you all, has commissioned a report, a prospectus if you will, on the Edmonsuck Coilers. Our crack team of researchers and Dick Tracey’s have managed to unearth some very important information, information that should calm all Flame fans everywhere; Information pertaining to why the Oilers will continue to stink. Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, we will present just some of the reasons. If we were to go through all of them, we’d have our fingers fall off.

No offence to Brian McGrattan and Jamal Mayers, but there were three pending free agent players Flames fans were most interested in when it comes to their future destinations. Of those three, Craig Conroy, Eric Nystrom and Chris Higgins, only the former remains on the free agent market. So how will the fits be for Higgins and Nystrom in their new locales? And where, if anywhere, will Conroy end up?
