Flames Sign Forward David Eddy

they must have noticed him while tracking ex-Flames prospect Aaron Marvin, a former teammate of Eddy.

although his stats + physical attributes aren't impressive, I'm all for signing NCAA/CHL UFA prospects for free.

Millions has speculated there may be more NCAA signings coming from Calgary still

Fleury14 03-20-2012 05:02 PM

all I could find on him from the prospects board, from about a year ago:

Quote:

Eddy is one tough son-of-a-gun and has the potential to put up Garrett Roe type numbers... as long as he stays academically eligible.
and from the NCAA board:

Quote:

As far as I can surmise, he's a scrappy agitator with a non-stop motor, kind of in the mold of Roe, but a tiny bit bigger and with less ego. I don't think he has Roe's upside
Quote:

I thought he was poised for a big year and he has a more in-your-face game the team is lacking this year. His presence really showed on the score sheet.

Apparently he was also suspended twice during his sophmore season, once for grades and another time (speculated) for alcohol.

and btw, Garrett Roe was a former PPG NCAA'er, who has 35 points in 62 games in his rookie AHL season this year.

I thought the Flames were already at 50 contracts, so obviously there's some reason they can sign person #51... Guys?

The contract doesn't kick in until next season:

"The Calgary Flames announced today they have signed forward David Eddy from St. Cloud University to a two year, two-way contract with the first year being 2012-13"

(from their site)

DBU 03-20-2012 05:44 PM

I kind of like to think that if the Flames can target some of these undrafted college kids, then it'll almost make up for any draft picks Feaster is unable to get back. Obviously I would hope for guys with higher upside than Eddy, but I think this is a good step in the right direction.

Xelstyle 03-20-2012 05:54 PM

This isn't so much a signing to make up for the lack of prospects but the fact that we'll be lacking the usual draft pick or two...or three. Who knows what'll happen come draft day.

Right now we actually have 7 picks in the upcoming draft. We are minus our 2nd (Regehr deal) and 5th (Leblond deal), but have the BJs 5th (via Montreal in the Bourque trade) and the Leafs 7th (from the Primeau deal).

Next year we are down our 2nd (in the Bourque deal) and maybe up or down a 7th or swapping 7th rounders with Anaheim (from the MacMillan/Jaffray trade, as there was a conditional 7th on each side)

flameaholic 03-20-2012 06:32 PM

Any news on DeKeyser and Brown? Those are the guys we really need to sign.

Billy Mays Here 03-20-2012 06:35 PM

Good Minnesota kid. I went to high school with him at Woodbury Senior High. He was a senior when I was a freshmen.

Even with 7 picks, that's still two 2nds we're lacking between today and next season.

King In The North 03-20-2012 09:16 PM

Maybe Feaster will be daring and trade some lower picks to get us a 2nd

Yeah he was a pretty nice guy. Just a little cocky at times.

Fleury14 03-21-2012 08:37 AM

signed to an ATO with the Heat and will play out the season there.

Johnny Hoxville 03-21-2012 09:48 AM

I don't mind this, even though he sounds like a 4th maybe 3rd liner at best, we lack these types of players on the Flames. Guys that are 'physical' and can contribute on the score sheet. Will be interested to see this guy in camp next year.

sounds like he could be our version of Steve Ott. Let's hope, the flames need someone like that in the bottom six.

Haha i wish:p

Steve Ott is actually a good faceoff guy and has pretty good skill when he isn't pissing people off. Don't think he flames will get lucky enough to get their own version of Ott.

Flames Fanatic 03-21-2012 11:58 AM

I think we hope he turns out to be a Carcillo type player. Energy, and can occasionally chip in, but it's not entirely expected either.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know off the top of their heads how many contracts we have signed for next season and which prospects need to be signed or we lose their rights?

Hm, if he's projected to be that bottom 6er with some agitation, then that's fine. Thanks for the description

Looks like 33 w/ 11 RFAs

- 2nd post; just Joey Leach

Our RFA's that I doubt we keep are McMillan,Gratham, Meyers. Aliu, Henry are probably nots. We'll likely keep Byron, Backlund, Comeau(?), Connolly, Irving, Jones.

So we're looking at 40 with the likelys, not having signed any UFA's. Jokinen is likely, and I think Moss probably is too. Stempniak, who knows. Hannan and Sarich are probably gone.

So around 42-43 contracts needed without signing anymore of our prospects. Signing UFA's AND some more college players might put us right up to the limit again. Which is fine, really. I was just curious to how it would play out.
