Now that the dust has settled on yesterday and the madness is over, it's time to take an objective look at the pieces the Flames picked up. I'll endeavor to eject my sour feelings (which I've obviously made quite clear) over the Jokinen debacle in this analysis and let the data do the talking instead. I'll also take stock of the Flames new situation moving forward.

Look, I'm not going to try to put any lipstick on this pig. Olli Jokinen's tenure in Calgary was a complete failure, full stop. His acquisition and subsequent trade bookended a period that one might hope had cured Darryl Sutter from making any rash moves.

Courtesy Darren Dreger... Flames sign Jokinen to 2 year deal worth 3M per.
That is all.

Is it the first shoe to drop? Or is it all we'll see today? The Calgary Flames have signed free agent forward Alex Tanguay to what's being reported as a one year contract worth $1.7 million.

I was going to prepare a Flames primer to free agency, but decided not to re-invent the wheel when I saw Haley had already done an admiral job of things. Make sure to visit M&G for a thorugh overview.
I have to say, this is perhaps the murkiest July 1 for the Flames I've seen since the lock-out. Previously, whether facing many or few obstacles, the obstacles were at least apparently obvious.
