    Default [Signed] KHL G Zagadulin agrees to pact with Flames

    https://www.nhl.com/flames/news/flam...?tid=282300716

    I saw rumors about this on eliteprospects.com

    Probably a year in Stockton awaits, hope he doesnt mind the stench which is awful. Have to roll the windows up and hold your breath on that stretch of I-5.

    So what's the deal with this guy? Does anyone have any insight into what he brings / his potential place within the organizational depth chart for goaltenders? It seems like Gillies and McDonald are both on the way out with the Flames, so I could see him splitting with Parsons for AHL Stockton, but I really have no idea what the organization is thinking with these guys.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated

    Correct spelling is 'Zagidulin". He seems like a decent prospect, and given that the Flames only have a total of six goalies under contract (if you include RFA Rittich), and none past the upcoming season pending Rittich's new deal, the door is wide open if he can prove himself in Stockton this year. Here's the best article I found, with a quote from a European hockey writer named Aivis Kalniņ:

    This fellow is very good at hockey. But on a more serious note - pretty athletic for his size. Overall calm goalie. I would call him a great project. Not sure if he has the ceiling to be an NHL starter but if developed properly he should be an amazing 1A/1B option. Source:

    Throw enough crap against the wall and sooner or later, some of it will stick. The story of every NHL team looking for their next starter.


    10 Team, Points Only, Cash League

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Stamkos, Tavares, JaBenn, Couture, Wheeler, Lee, Frolik, RThomas, Kucherov, Byfuglien, Burns, Zuccarello, Hoffman, JSchwartz, KPalmieri, KConnor, Necas, Bjorkstrand, Point, Konecny, MBacklund, NSchmaltz

    G- Vasilevskiy, Bobrovsky, Hart

    Yup, pretty much. Low risk signing with nothing but upside.

    C'mon and sign Rittich already...I keep hearing/reading that the team really likes him and considers him their starter, yet they haven't signed him yet to (what I hope) will be a starter-type contract similar to what Grubauer got from the Avs.
    12 team, H2H, salary cap
    1 pt/G or A, 2 pts/W, 1 pt/OTL, 1 pt/SO

    Forward: N. Kucherov, E. Lindholm, B. Point, K. Connor, G. Landeskog, Forsberg
    Defense: S. Gostisbehere, M. Heiskanen, O. Ekman-Larsson, TBD
    Goalie: D. Rittich, P. Grubauer, S. Varlamov

    League has been running continuously since 1997-98

    I wouldn't be comfortable with a 3-year, $10M deal for Rittich if I were GM. He had one decent stretch and then faltered to the point that he lost the starter's job for the playoffs. I think that's part of the issue the Flames' management may be wresting with, hence the one-year prove-it deal with Talbot.

    “If developed properly”

    Well there goes that, as long as Sigalet is still in the organization.

    Ya, what ever happened to Gillies, so much hope for that guy. And then it was all about Parsons, but where is that going these days? I thought CGY was in great shape here but it just hasn't seemed to materialize.

    We need to offer the Rangers' goalie coach a crap ton of money to pry him away. I'm not confident at all that any goalie we draft will amount to much.
    12 team lifetime pool. 18 skaters - No positional requirements / 3 goalies (2 count for points)
    Taxi Squad - players have 5 year protection then must be called up or dropped.
    Goals and Assists count for points. Goalies get 1.5 for a win / 4.5 pts for a SO and points for G/A.

    Skaters:
    Fix-Wolansky, Fiala, Letang, Sikura, Lehkonen, Bratt, Ho Sang, Kaprizov, Haula, Jankowski, Jokiharju, Simmonds, Tanev, Donato, Hinostroza, S. Bennett, Beauvillier, Batherson.

    Goalies:
    Shestyorkin, Demko, Varlamov


    Taxi squad: Forsbacka-Karlsson, Liljegren, Samsanov, Zacha


    - I'm no expert but I try really hard

    I'm really glad I clicked through to the article. I really liked both Metallurg Magnitogorsk's uniform and the Milwaukee Admirals lower on the page.

    He seems like a guy to toss on a watch list for now, that's for sure.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1-2 backup G's, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: F Andersen
    Backup G: Holtby
    D: Hainsey, M Reilly, Carlson, Gustafsson, Klingberg, Letang,
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, MacKinnon
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, Guentzel
    F3: Benn, Seguin, Pavelski,
    F4: Point, Stamkos, Tavares

    Bench:
    G: Bobrovsky
    D: Gardiner, Gostisbehere, Schultz, Werenski
    F: Bailey, Johnsson, Killorn, Labanc, JT Miller, Necas, Tuch, Voracek

    Reserve: Datsyuk
