The Calgary Flames had a lot of problems last year, but none bigger than their goaltending. Not one of the four puckstoppers who graced the club's crease last year finished with an average SV%. As a team, the Flames finished with one of the worst save rates in the entire league at even strength at .908. That's 12 points back of merely average.
Brad Treliving clearly entered the offseason on a mission not to allow that to happen again. His moves to acquire both Brian Elliott and Chad Jonhson promise to vastly improve the netminding situation for the team next season. But how much of an improvement is it likely to be?
A big one.

That's how long James Wisniewski played for the Carolina Hurricanes before tearing his ACL. He was subjected to two trades before, coming from the Ducks via the Blue Jackets. He wasn't able to stick at either club and various reasons were given to why he didn't stick. His contract was a bit of an albatross due to his 5.5 million dollar cap hit, which given his production wasn't as terrible as it sounds. After being bought out by the Hurricanes, where exactly does Wisniewski go next?

With the Leafs signing fourth-liner Matt Martin to a contract worth $10 million, there's been lots of talk already about how the Leafs will probably regret that contract in the future. By extension, there's been lots of talk about how the Leafs might eventually get out from under that contract.

After years of hoping and wishing, the Edmonton Oilers have finally acquired Milan Lucic! It wasn’t cheap, though, as they signed the big left winger to a 7-year $42 million contract.
