from Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun,
A lot of eyebrows were raised around the hockey world Tuesday when TSN’s Bob McKenzie reported the details of Engelland’s deal with the Flames, but the Calgary club’s GM, Treliving, pointed out there was lots of interest in the 32-year-old unrestricted free agent and the Saddledome-dwellers had loads of space under the salary cap.
“Is it is a high price? Some will say it’s a very high price,” Treliving said. “Based on our situation, based upon the flexibility we have, we felt it was a very fair price.
“Deryk is a guy who I think, in a lot of ways, has been under-appreciated and undervalued,” Treliving added about Engelland. “If you do the homework and do the research and talk to former players and talk to people in Pittsburgh about what kind of person Deryk is, you get the response that this guy was a big part of their locker-room.”

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,
Savard said that he didn’t have any headaches after the game, but he used concussion buzz words like “bell rung” and “dazed” after the game was over to describe his feelings after the hit. He assured that he felt “okay” after the game, and hoped that feeling would continue as the adrenaline peeled away in the hours following the loss.
“All I want to do, is make sure I gather my thoughts, you know, and everything came back together … fine,” said Savard. “I’ll monitor it and watch the rest of the day here, see how I feel a little bit … I was a little bit shaken up.”
more and watch the hit…

I don’t believe Orr played again after the punch.
