The Calgary Flames executed zero trades today, which isn’t too surprising given their lack of assets and tough position in the standings. Although Jay Feaster made some suggestions the other night during a intermission interview that he’d be interested in making some real changes, the fact is he was most likely just trying to put a scare into the dressing room.
Personally, I’m disappointed the Flames didn’t manage to move someone like Sarich or Hannan for a pick. It’s possible there wasn’t any demand for their services though.
On the other hand, Calgary extended Tim Jackman for just over $600k per year for two years. It’s a decent contract, even with his lackluster output this season. Jackman is decent at driving play against other fourth liners and he fills the role of pugilist while still managing to be an NHL-level player (which can’t be said of many other knuckle chuckers).
