Hannan made $4.5M last year. This year with the Flames he will make $1M. Why the change… has he gotten that much worse in the past year? Nope. Is he too old to contribute? Nope. So why? Puck Daddy explains his theory as to why Hannan had to settle for a measly $1M with the forsaken Flames.
Now the Flames have seven defenceman on one-way contracts including Scott Hannan, Jay Bouwmeester, Mark Giordano, Cory Sarich, Anton Babchuk, Chris Butler, and Brett Carson. That’s pretty much your defensive lineup for next year, not really striking fear into the hearts of other teams are they?
