It's only three days until the collective bargaining agreement expires! Nevertheless, there are a lot of things to discuss in short-order! Waiver news, Euro seasons beginning and a (as of right now irrelevant) TV schedule!

For all the jokes we've made over the years about your Calgary Flames playing golf, apparently it's a big deal when they actually don't.
If you hadn't heard the news, and you probably didn't because whatever, The Flames are not going to play in their annual charity golf tournament this Thursday.

Outside of bringing in Jiri Hudler and Roman Cervenka to the organization, arguably the most important addition to the Calgary Flames this summer was Dennis Wideman. In fact, he may be more crucial to the success of the club than any of the new forwards.
To be blunt, the Flames got very little offense from their blueline last season. Consequently, their power-play also got very few goals from their back end. Enter Wideman, who was tenth in points among NHL blueliners and, had he been on the Flames, he would've had more points than anyone not named Iginla, Jokinen, Tanguay or Glencross.
But how will Wideman fare on the Flames?

Ryan Lambert recently noted Mike Cammalleri's low shot volume in his Five Things feature. That mention got me curious about investigating the main guy's shot rates last year in depth and to relate it to their possession rates and overall performance.

So you may have noticed some McKeen's Hockey banners popping up here and there across the Nation. That's because the boys over at McKeen's are launching a new website and subscription service that will replace their excellent annual magazines.
