Some minor Flames news to pass along. Calgary recently signed 21 year old free agent defenseman Chris Breen to an entry level deal. The former Peterborough Pete spent 5 seasons in the OHL, compiling nominal offensive stats as a stay-at-home defender. He appeared in one game for the Abbotsford Heat on a try-out basis near the end of the AHL season.

A quick and unscientific poll suggests that Flames fans, at least the ones who two months after their heroes' elimination are still paying attention, don't quite know what to make of the Stanley Cup final, which starts tonight in the House That Tony Amonte Built.

The Chilliwack Bruins top scorer is perhaps the most interesting prospect in the Flames organization. Mostly because he represents a marked departure from the franchises drafting habits under the Sutter regime. Not only is he probably the smallest forward the team has drafted at 5'11" 190 pounds, but he was also classiffied a one-dimensional "offense only" player by many scouts during his draft year. You can count on one finger the amount of players the Sutter-led Flames have drafted since 2003 with that description.

When the Flames signed Bryan Cameron, I was lucky enough to convince Brock Otten of the excellent OHL prospects blog to share some of his observations on the overaged sniper. I went back to the well this week to get some qualitative information on Greg Nemisz, whom I recently profiled here. My questions and Otten's responses after the jump.

The big news is that there's no news.
After meeting with Flames president and CEO Ken King, George Johnson reports in the Calgary Herald that after the club's self-imposed period of evaluation and contemplation, neither Darryl Sutter nor Jarome Iginla is going anywhere.
