That was a gut-punch loss, hey folks? Anyone old enough was probably reminded of Brian Skudland's record setting fastest-play-off-OT-goal-ever against the Flames in '86 when Havlat's shot snuck through Jokinen and Kipper 12 seconds into the extra frame...
Anyways, I went around ye olde intrawebs this morning and collected some reactions.

The good news is the Flames probably played Chicago far tougher than anyone expected. The bad news is it ultimately got them to the same destination as if they had played like garbage.

UFA Options is a continuing series that gives a brief run-down of the unrestricted free agent market this summer, team-by-team. It starts with a look at the Anaheim Ducks.
The Anaheim Ducks have five unrestricted free agents of note (this of course assumes that former NHL journeymen Josh Green and Eric Boguniecki are no longer on teams’ respective radar screens). We’ll review them first by position, and then by 2008-09 cap hit.

We just about had an eyeball pop out of our skull yesterday afternoon when that article got emailed into OilersNation Central Command ™.
