I'm pretty pumped about Ramo, but while he has more NHL experience than Irving his numbers on the Bolts weren't very good. His S% instantly got ALOT better upon moving to the KHL. I'm optimistic about him because that was a necessary move for his development, but I would like to see more from Ramo in the NHL before we decided to part ways with Irving. Only thing is, unless we move Kipper I'm not sure how that is possible.

Feaster has really changed the culture on the Flames. He brings in Cervenka who is a former teammate of Ramo, brings in Hudler who is very good friend of Cervenka. He has really set the stage to attract these kinds of players. My point being Feaster is using all means at his disposal to make the Flames a better team and more attractive place to play. Darryl did this by overpaying for players and giving them a NMC.
