Flames Transaction News: Flames Re-Sign Ferland, Schlemko to the Devils, Glencross’ PTO, and the Kostitsyn Situation

The Calgary Flames finally got around to signing Micheal Ferland today, inking him to a one-way, two-year deal worth $825,000 a year. The big question here is why the contract took so long to be agreed to, but really, who cares? Mr. Irrelevant Ferklund is back!

In other news, today:

‘Shootout’ Schlemko signs in New Jersey

You have to believe that this will be a great fit for both parties. The Devils aren’t really all that deep in any facet outside of the crease, and David Schlemko is a shootout wizard.

This is approximately the 700th time that I have mentioned this goal on this website, by the way!

Considering that this team that is only a year removed from going 0-11 in shootouts (and missing the playoffs by only five points), Schlemko may find a niche in the Garden State.

Sigh: Curtis Glencross inks PTO with Maple Leafs

Oh, Curtis. Curtis, Curtis, Curtis.

Curtis, Curtis, Curtis, Curtis, Curtis.
During the last season, Glencross was rumoured to be seeking a big deal, potentially as large as Mike Cammalleri’s from the 2014 offseason. The Flames weren’t about to hand big money and term to a declining player, however, and, as a result, traded him for 2 moderately high picks at the Trade Deadline.

Now, in September, Glencross finally has a contract. Sort of. 

What he has is a Professional Tryout Offer from Toronto, which means that he can go to the Leafs’ camp and see if he can earn a contract. 

Yikes. Best of luck to you, Curtis. 

On a PTO, the Flames bring in Sergei Kos- no, Andrei. Wait, who?

This is weird. In this article, the Edmonton Journal’s Jim Matheson reports that Sergei Kostitsyn will be coming to the Flames’ camp. That’s cool. He put up decent numbers in Montreal, and maybe he’ll adj- wait. What?

Oh, ok. I can deal with this. Andrei was also a very goo-

Wait. Didn’t it just get reported that Andr-

But you just said… what?


Now, I’m really confused.
