I'm going to limit the new guy profiles to Max Reinhart this summer. Being the first pick of 2010 for the organization, he has the greatest chance of being an NHLer going forward. More interestingly, however, he's likely to be one of the most contentious third round choices under Sutter's watch (as illustrated by Robert's article below). Perhaps in the club's history, depending on how things play out.

News from the twitterverse via TSN's Bob McKenzie:

This weekend's activities in Los Angeles passed by with the Flames doing very little. I'm not actually surprised that they didn't move a body or two during the draft, largely because teams that have limited assets aren't often able manufacture anything worthwhile. Making chicken salad usually does actually require the proper ingredients, if you catch my drift. That noted, even by Calgary's standards, this weekend's series of selections was straight vanilla, no chaser.

In a rather uneventful weekend for the Calgary Flames, they managed to pull off one minor deal, sending the 163rd pick overall (6th round) to the San Jose Sharks for 6-5, 215lb. goaltender Henrik Karlsson.

So, after two days of drafting in Los Angeles, the weekend comes to an end without a "big move" from GM Darryl Sutter and the Calgary Flames. They made one deal and drafted six players, but the feedback I'm getting seems to point to a little disappointment.
