With Curtis Glencross' fresh new NMC, the Flames will head into next season with a league-high 10 such clauses on their roster (Iginla, Langkow, Stajan, Bourque, Jokinen, Bouwmeester, Regehr, Sarich, Kiprusoff, Glencross), leading to some understandable consternation about the inflexibility of a roster that is both expensive and hasn't proven to be all that good the last two years. As such, an investigation of the use of the NTC/NMC is in order I think.

Jay Feaster has never proven himself to be a good general manager. So why on earth would he start now?

Whether you like it or not, Jay Feaster is now the General Manager of the Calgary Flames, and he is tasked with turning a non-playoff team back into a contender in the next four years (the term of his contract). There are reasons why many Flames fans are skeptical of Calgary's choice to drive the bus, but I'm willing to give Jay a chance at the helm. And hey, seeing as how none of us have control, it's probably the best way to avoid severe headaches.

With Feaster now cemented in the GM chair and Glencross signed, we can turn our attention to Calgary's predicament heading into next season. With a few more dollars on the books (and yet another NMC), the Flames have a few players left to sign and a vanishingly small amount of cap space to do it with.
