How Much To Pay Tanguay?

from Vicki Hall of the Calgary Herald,

The 31-year-old setup man for Jarome Iginla headlines a list of seven Calgary players eligible for unrestricted free agency on July 1. Tanguay has made it known how much he likes it in Calgary. He adores playing with Iginla.

But how much of a raise does one of the best pure passers in the game deserve after putting up 22 goals and 69 points?

Can the Flames, tight up against the salary cap, afford the asking price of a player so vital to their first line?

“We’re certainly having conversations with Alex’s agent right now — going back and forth on some ideas of how we might try to accomplish this,” Feaster said.

The Flames exacted tremendous value out of Tanguay last season at a bargain price of $1.7 million.
