from Russo’s Rants,
It looks like Calgary’s re-signed Langkow already at four years, $20 million — which the Wild wouldn’t have offered anyway. The Flames just can’t announce the deal until July 1 because it puts them over the $50.3 million cap, and the cap doesn’t go up until July 1 (like why the Wild and Bruins had to hold off on the Manny Fernandez trade at last year’s Draft; the trade put the Bruins over the cap until July 1).
This isn’t written in stone. It just appears this way because reporters in Calgary keep referring to Langkow like he’s already signed.
– As for Olli Jokinen, the Flames have bigtime interest in reuniting the Florida captain with Mike Keenan, but they would have to dump a giant salary to get him — probably Alex Tanguay.
more and some other NHL bits…
