Negotiation terms, funding identified for potential arena deal: city

Date: 2019-02-21

The city says basic negotiating terms have been drafted for a deal to replace the Saddledome, though details of the proposal likely won’t be made public until a tentative agreement is reached with the Calgary Flames. The draft “term sheet” outlining the city’s bargaining position — as well as a proposed source of funds to contribute to a new arena — was approved Wednesday following a nearly two-hour-long closed meeting of council’s event centre committee. “We’ve put together a term sheet that obviously we believe is fair and equitable to both parties,” said Coun. Jeff Davison, who chairs the event centre committee. “This is what we need and this is the terms we can move forward on a negotiation with.” Details of the proposal, which would include a cash contribution from the city, according to Davison, won’t be made public until a tentative agreement is finalized. “This is a negotiation with a partner and so there’s third-party invo

CALGARY – The Calgary Flames are on the verge of adding two defencemen. Not via trade, but from within. On a day when Brad Treliving revealed James Neal will be out "week-to-week" with a lower-body injury, the Flames GM addressed trade deadline questions brimming with excitement over the pending returns of Michael Stone and Juuso Valimaki. He then sent a series of mixed messages on how he’s approaching Monday’s trade deadline. More on that later. Stone skated with the Flames Wednesday morning for the f

Bill Peters is making adjustments as the Islanders come to town. When things go wonky, you tend to make some adjustments to whatever you are in charge of and that's exactly what Bill Peters is done. Once thought unfathomable, the Flames top line is being broken up. Matthew Tkachuk will join Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan, while Elias Lindholm will slide down to the second line with

Flames Show Signs of Life After Rough Start in February

Date: 2019-02-20

Calgary Flames head coach Bill Peters was in good spirits going into the All-Star break. Having just defeated the Carolina Hurricanes in an overtime thriller to cap off a successful string of victories, the Flames entered their nine-day hiatus in a strong and authoritative position. Peters lauded his club’s performance and congratulated his players on a well-deserved period of rest and relaxation. From the mood displayed by the Calgary coach, one would expect the bye-week to be good for the Flames. As events would show, however, these expectations turned out contrary to reality. Returning from that lengthy All-Star break, the Flames were rusty, sloppy, and all out of their element. Whiffs from the slot, wayward passes. Flames' execution is off tonight. It's as if they've only played twice in the la

Episode 202: Mike Smith Is Looking Good Again!

Date: 2019-02-20

Mike Smith is looking like an NHL goalie again, James Neal is out of the lineup and Dalton Prout is becoming a serviceable defenceman. We discuss if these factors should change the Flames trade deadline strategy? We've talked alot about what the Flames should acquire at the deadline, and this week we look at what the most likely asset(s) for the Flames to give up are. Plus we read some listener emails about the sky falling in Calgary, and if the Flames need veteran leadership. And of course a healthy dose of Oilers bashing this week. Could an XBOX do a better job of managing the team than the past GM did?

Flames’ James Neal’s injury not expected to be long-term

Source: Sportsnet
Date: 2019-02-20

Calgary Flames forward James Neal isn’t expected to be out long-term with the upper-body injury that kept him out of the lineup on the weekend. Look for the Flames to announce James Neal's injury status by tomorrow morning. Don't expect him to be out too long – certainly not long enough for the team to put him on long term injury reserve with an eye on opening cap space for a significant trade deadline move. — Eric Francis (@EricFrancis)
