The Nation sites have been so busy today that I haven't even been able to login until just now. The fan passion for this site has been amazing for everyone here, and today was another demonstration of that. Anyways, I just got this email from a friend and I thought everyone deserved to see it.

As per TSN.ca, Jay Bouwmeester has elected not to test the free agent market, signing a 5-year, 6.6-million dollar per season contract with the Calgary Flames.

In contrast to the draft, Darryl Sutter has never been too active when it comes to July 1; opting instead to re-sign his in-house assets or acquire big names via trade. The most notable free agent signings by Calgary in the last few years have been Todd Bertuzzi and Cory Sarich. As such, Flame fans shouldn't expect Sutter to make a play for any of the big name guys available tomorrow...

One website proclaimed it a “Bouw Coup.” A very neat and clever play on words, but how much of a coup was it really for the Flames to acquire the negotiating rights to lanky defenceman Jay Bouwmeester in exchange for a third-round draft choice?

Day two doesn't have the same build up as day one, so I wouldn't be surprised to see more trades today.
And just like that the Day starts with a bang. And it is a piss in your cornflakes day for Oiler fans.
