Free Agent Targets

So now that Feaster basically started free agency.. who else do you want/think the flames should pick up?

personally I would like to add Matt Carle, and P.A. Parenteau.
The line up would then be:

Tanguay - Cammalleri - Iginla
Glencross - Cervenka - Parenteau
Baertchi - Backlund - Comeau
Bouma - Jones - Aliu
Jackman

Bouwmeester - Wideman
Giordano - Carle
Butler - Brodie
Smith - Wilson

lol, so were coughing up $5m for each of them too?..

I think we blew our wad on Wideman. We don't want to be spending too much of the "cap space" since it's more likely for the cap to decrease with a new CBA then for it to increase.

I think we are finished. What we we have right now is what you will see next season.

I still want Jay McClement. Faceoffs, PK, probably not going to cost an arm and leg. I also wouldn't be opposed to picking up a Mueller or Lattendresse for third line RW and shootout help.

Mueller and Guillaume please. Parenteau is too expensive. I think the defense is more or less done outside of a bouwmeester trade.

Steinberg says the Flames are looking for a top-6 forward and a top-9 forward. He puts his money on Doan and Tootoo. IMO we should be going after Latendresse or Mueller. I wouldn't mind Tootoo though.

Top six forward at centre? Jokinen.

Top 9 winger? Jagr

Tootoo is what I thought of when Feaster was talking about someone that went they hit you, you felt it. Not a fighter, but can.

Mueller and Latendresse, I want them both... But what does everyone think of:
Sven - Backlund - Tootoo.
High end skill and protection and forecheck like you wouldn't believe off RW?

I really really hope we sign Tootoo, god knows we've needed a player like him for years. Him or Prust to a lesser extent. I dont see us doing much else unless we send out some salary somehow

I can't stand that pests seem to run unpunished in Calgary. I seriously cannot stand it. i want a guy who can give it just as bad as anyone.

I think the fourth line is more or less in place. Prusty wouldn't be bad though.
Proust - Jones - Comeau
That's a line I'd be okay sending out*against most lines.
Jackman in only when we have to deal with muscle, no point vs. Detroit, Vancouver and others

I wouldn't be surprised to see Doan here although I would rather have a younger player in Mueller. Tootoo would be awesome for this team!!!

I agree with everyone id love tootoo to sign here, but I don't see us having a chance at prust I mean we have traded the man twice now so I don't think he would want to sign with us, also my RW target is latendress for sure. He is a big body who can go to the net and capable of putting up big points. Plus this really was his first injury wriddled year while mueller has a quite a few injuries so I dont want him and I think parenteau is a one time wonder and just put up points cuz he was playing top minutes in long island Aka Blake comeau

Our top 6 looks pretty good with him slotted in too.

I think Tootoo would be pretty interesting on the bottom 2 lines for the Flames. Parenteau might be a good fit as well but I think he will command a big payday so if that's the case I hope Feaster stays away. A centerman that can finally win faceoffs would also be a big win for the team if they can get someone like that.

I think defense is done. We grabbed the second biggest name on the market. Outside of a Bo trade, we have a clogged up 6-7 on d as it stands.

Forwards, I want Mueller or Latendresse the most, simply because they are top six guys. Tootoo would be amazing, I don't think Aliu can do what he does, Aliu is kind of meh in my books. Still a huge work in progress. Give him another Abby season IMHO.

Keep this in mind, PA will have the most swollen contract for a second liner this summer, and Carle will make similar to Wideman money.

Cap hell engaged.

Looking at our roster I still see a few holes.

1.A physical defenseman - Potential solutions: Carlo Coliacovo, Greg Zanon, Bryan Allen, or even Cory Sarich (at a reduced price)

2.A versatile center that can win faceoffs - Potential solutions: Paul Gaustad, Adam Burrish, Zenon Konopka, Erik Christensen

3.A top six RW - Potential solutions: Alex Semin, Shane Doan, P.A. Parenteau, Andrei Kostitsyn, Jaromir Jagr

My personal favourites (factoring in likely salary expectations) are Coliacovo, Gaustad, and Semin (although we probably don't have the cap space for him without shipping someone else out).
