Everyone’s Happy With The Mark Giordano Signing

from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun,

To the Calgary Flames faithful, GM Brad Treliving’s elevated himself to lofty status.

On the heels of the team signing captain Mark Giordano to a contract extension — essentially capping a summer in which the club also acquired and inked rising star blueliner Dougie Hamilton among a few other impressive moves — the praise for Treliving has gone off the charts.

Words of “wizard” and “genius” were all over Twitter in the aftermath of Giordano’s extension being announced on Tuesday....

And his latest signing, inking Giordano to a six-year extension which pays an average salary of US$6.75 million, has other benefits than just keeping the team’s captain in the fold.

“I do think Mark Giordano on the open market can make more than what Mark Giordano signed for here with us,” Treliving said. “Absolutely he did a good deal for himself, but I also think he was very cognizant of his team here and making sure we give ourselves the best chance moving forward to have success.”
