"No ifs, ands, or buts," Flames GM Brad Treliving told Eric Francis, he's going to fix Calgary's goaltending woes this summer.
Come July 1st, assuming none of the following are re-signed between now and then, each of Karri Ramo, Niklas Backstrom, and Jonas Hiller will be UFA's. Joni Ortio will be an RFA himself. Meaning the Flames won't have a starting caliber goalie on the roster, but will be minus $11.716M off the cap between the trio of UFA's. The Flames are currently the only team in the League with a sub-.900 save percentage. "We will leave no stone unturned and see where we go," Treliving said. "It's obviously a critical position and we'll cast a wide net." Frederik Andersen, Cam Ward, James Reimer and Darcy Kuemper top the list of potential UFA signees, while Petr Mrazek leads the way in potential offer sheet material as an RFA.
