Flames replace Brodie with Tanev. Musical chairs in the Pacific division.

Flames get blown out by The Gurianovs in game 6. Season over.

They've got cap room and turnover on defence this offseason. They could be players in the Taylor Hall sweepstakes. That would jazz the fanbase, for obvious reasons.

They'll be happy to get Valimaki back. Will they bring back Talbot or go for someone more high profile like Holtby?
They need to address their goaltending issues. I bet they go hard after Markstrom in free agency.

Spot on LP.

Tanev is a decent add and brings another Right handed shot the Flames were looking for on D. He also looks to be a bit steadier on D than Brodie. Pilfering from the Canucks does cause me to smile a bit.

I will briefly mention depth additions Rinaldo, Robinson, Froese and Petrovic ....and that's it.

I am not hurt by Rieder, Brodie, or Jankowski......

Gustaffson I thought maybe..but there is still time for that.

That's too bad Gustaffson signs with Philly

No way the Flames were giving him 3 Mil.

A few more housekeeping chores remain.....MangePunani/Kylington (????) ...Barring another mid level D man for the RSide or a trade that's pretty much that (not much out there for FAs, Ceci, Hamonic....maybe Jan Rutta).

Treliving has done as good as he can and on paper has given this organization a chance to succeed for the next few years. Expectations will be extremely high again next year....as every time I think Treliving is going to be shown the door he manages to squeak out a few more opportunities. Truly he must be on that last life by now.

As the Flames have dawdled over the past few seasons other Western teams are now coming into their own windows and bolstering their lineups. Its not going to be easy....especially when you have to face teams out of the West like Colorado, Vancouver, Vegas, Stars and Blues. Fortunately, Edmonton and Vegas are really the only concerns in a Pacific division that's seen the California dynasty pass so they can consider themselves lucky there.

I don't really like the interim tag being removed from Ward...but I understand the need for stability at the helm. Especially considering the fragility of this group's game ego over the years.

It seems like there should be a lot of teams in the West that have WCF or bust goals. I am not sure if this team can meet those expectations but that seems to be the minimum goal here as well.

Unless Tanev bounces back from two rather sub-par seasons, that may be a regrettable signing. I like Tanev but the numbers seemed to suggest he had fallen off a cliff in recent years. Also, there's the injury history. All things considered though not the worst idea for a replacement for Brodie on the right side.

I also think the Flames will come to regret going with that much term with 30-year-old Jacob Markstrom, but it was almost worth it seeing Edmonton have to limp away and just go with the same inadequate tandem they had before.

Joakim Nordstrom jumps from Boston to Calgary on a one year deal. Jay, presumably you know him well.
