One report says that the Flames have made a presentation to Richards and his agent Friday afternoon. The pitch, apparently, included encouraging words from Jarome Iginla.
Another rumour had them offering Richards a package worth $64 million US over nine years. The Flames have about $7 in cap room left.
Adam Pardy has signed a two-year contract in Dallas for $2 million per season. No word on where Anton Babchuk is going to play next year. And Staios, if anyone is still interested in that.
This is from the Flames’ website:
“On the front of Flames UFA’s, defencemen Anton Babchuk and Adam Pardy had been sent offers before July 1st but neither could come to terms with the club. Pardy signed a two-year deal in Dallas worth $2 million per season while Babchuk is still available.”
The Flames inked restricted free agent Chris Butler to a two-year deal worth $1,250,000 per season and added depth by signing Carter Bancks, Quintin Laing and Joe Piskula.
Feaster did point out that he was pleased that his team had been able to secure a raft of its own unrestricted free agents — including forwards Alex Tanguay and Curtis Glencross, defenceman Brett Carson and goaltender Henrik Karlsson — before Friday.
