I heard 30 teams called St. Louis about Wade Redden.

I doubt he would have waived his NTC to go to another team.

Plus you do want to have some competent veterans to help school younger players during a rebuild. I can see why they kept him.

I'm fine with keeping him. Much rather have him than a package of lesser assets. The only way I'd consider moving him is if a top prospect was on the table, like Conacher, which it probably wasn't.

I doubt it was 25 teams. I could see a good amount of teams have interest though.

Man wouldn't you try to make a deal with Feaster if you could?

Who's the captain of the Flames now that Iggy is gone? Are the Flames seriously banking on Iggy coming back for next season? I don't know anything about Glencross, but based on his on-ice performance and skill-set, I'd think Glencross would be a great choice for captain.

No one is, and the most likely candidate is Giordano. Glencross doesnt strike me as a leader one bit.

Ideally, we run no captain next year, Mackinnon comes in and is so good, we give it to him ala Landeskog.

hard to believe that Brodie or Giordano were kept b/c of the "we're rebuilding with them" reason as opposed to the "we didn't get a good enough offer in return for them"...
You have to keep some vets on (Gio) to stabilize the team for youngsters, so it makes sense from that end. Brodie, however, is perfect for the "we're rebuilding with them" category; he's been in the Flames' top 4 for almost the entire season, has a comparatively amazing shot differential, and even spent a few weeks on the top pairing with JBo. He's very good positionally (and fast enough to get into position when needed), and smart as hell with the puck (distribution skills are fantastic as well); the only real negatives about him are that he's not the strongest guy and he doesn't shoot enough (nor does he have a cannon of a shot, although it's decent).

He hasn't had to single-handedly carry a top 4 pairing yet, but he is, at the very least, an effective two-way complimentary top four guy. And I think he's got the capability to become a top pairing defender. His numbers don't blow anyone away though, and he's not physically imposing, so I don't think a lot of people outside of the Flames realize how good he actually is.

He strikes me as too much of a grumpy guss for full capitancy. If they choose a captain for next season, my money would be on Giordano, assuming Iginla doesn't win a cup and come back to the Flames.

So that mean they didn't get a single offer worth taking it?

Some teams never learn.

Glencross is signed for two more years after this. Calgary is not competing next year, probably not the year after. So why not move him now when his value is at its highest?

We will probably see him moved two years from now at the deadline for a 2nd round pick and b-level prospect.

Calgary's big rebuild...move two players for first round picks (ensuring that they are both not lottery picks in the process) and call it a day.

So we should just throw the out a team of rookies year after year? Man that will build confidence.

Why keep a 30 year old that lots of teams want if you are re-building? Calgary should have went full out rebuild. Glencross, Tanguay, Cammy...they could have had 2 more 1st and a 2nd + for those guys.

Christ. That made me laugh out loud.

"Hello Jay... This is Mr.Regehr."
"Oh!! Hi Darcy!! What would you like?!"
"No Jay, it's Robyn."
"Darcy?"
"It's Robyn... How are you doing?"
"No Curtis is not available."
"What? Who? What are you talking about."
"Ok Darcy, I have to go. Yzerman is calling. Gotta let him know Curtis is staying put. I don't even know who this Conacher kid is."
"Ok... Bye.."

Cammaleri, Tanguay, Hudler, Stempniak, Giordano, Wideman, Sarich are all signed for next year. None has the trade value of Glencross.

Add in a few decent low-profile UFA signings and you have enough veteran support for your prospects.

Iggy and Bouwmeester didn't even fetch a prospect like that, so I think probably could be reworded as definitely.

I still think some decent value could have been had for him. If that many teams really called I'm shocked there wasn't a single offer worth taking.

Personally I think Cammy is going to get moved for help on defense and Sarich isn't nhl defenseman we couldn't give him away. They may have been offers but simply because there are offers doesn't mean any of them were good for all we know it was 2nd + decent prospect. Glencross has become a very good leader off the ice and is part of the leadership group going forward, Tangauy and Cammy are most likely to be moved for help on defense. Glencross and Gio are the only Flames outside of Sarich that have been here for a while the management team wants them to represent what the Flames are going forward a physical hard working team.

It is easy to say move him for 1st ++ but unless that was offered and GlenX wanted to move it wouldn't have happened.

A major aspect of Glencross' contract was not simply stability, but specifically staying in Calgary. I doubt he'd have waived his NMC for anywhere except possibly Edmonton.

You can't compare Jbo to GlenX, Jbo makes 6.6 next most teams wanted Calgary to keep salary in order to get a quality prospect, ownership said no to that. GlenX wouldn't need his salary kept.

Iginla had only one available trade target, was pending UFA, and Conacher's not as good as people think he is. Bouwmeester was poorly handled in terms of return, and his cap hit was an issue. GlenX fits well under the cap and is signed for a couple of years longer; only issue is the NMC.

No - likely means Glencross wouldn't waive his NTC. He signed with Calgary for a serious discount and it sounds like he wants to stay.
