While Kent and Robert will handle the bulk of the 2011 draft prep, I'm going to be setting you up for the major date that follows a week after picks are made in Minnesota. July 1st fast approaches, which means the opening of free agency is also very much upon us; we'll be profiling Calgary's pending unrestricted and restricted free agents in the coming days, but before we do that, let's take a look back at July 1st, 2010; a day full of...surprises.

As expected, the Flames announced the hiring of Craig Hartsburg today. I suspect Brent Sutter was the catalyst for this choice given their past associations. Hartsburg has had some rough times as a head coach in the league, but his resume is pretty solid otherwise. It'll be interesting to see what role he takes with the club.
