The Flames have to have an offsetting transaction somewhere, as this puts them at 24 players on the Active Roster. Either someone got assigned [and it hasn't been announced yet] or someone got put on IR [they already have Warrener, Primeau, Giordano and Bourque there] and one of the three already on IR besides Warrener got moved to LTIR.

I'm betting someone got assigned back to the Quad Cities.

Except that players on IR still count against the cap. It may have been maneuvering for call-ups.
