They signed Comeau too?!

And with the 1st overall pick, the Calgary Flames select Nathan MacKinnon.

Another overpaid defenseman for the Flames. So is Olli Jokinen going to get $6M now?

Will take the reigns as a flames d-man with a horrid contract once J-Bo leaves, now they don't have to worry about replacing that

5 years is a bit too long. Cap doesn't bother me too much

There was a point in the playoffs where he had been on the ice for almost every ES goal against. It was laughably bad.

When a team in win-now mode with $20M in cap room doesn't make any attempt to re-sign a supposed key player, that should raise a red flag.

Good job getting paid, Wides. Nothing against ya bud, you had your moments in DC. But sure as hell did want you back, and especially not at that price.

Who signs a guy you got for a 5th round pick to a 5 year $5.25 mil deal?

I'm at a loss for words.

What an awful contract! Flames are always treading water. At least, if nothing else, he's a shootout specialist........

Jay Feaster is absolutely hilarious. This will be the move that propels the Flames from 9th place to a Stanley Cup.

Cap hit isn't bad (again, its a 70M world now) but term is far too long. I'd have given him 3 tops.

I personally wouldn't go anything more than $12.6MM/3yrs on Wideman. He's just not in that upper echelon IMO that would justify a $5MM+ salary, or a long term commitment.

The money is fine. The term is a bit long though.

Going to go out on a limb and guess full nmc.

Flames fans need to rise up. This Feaster moron is ruining your team for a very, very long time.

I don't think the Flames being idiots and overpaying Wideman means everyone else is willing to do the same.
