Fringe Signings (Jun 30)

Are you growing tired of the Flames and their constant busy work leading up to the free agency window?  I know I am.  Nevertheless, one more signing before the rest of the league explodes on July 1st, as the Flames came to terms with defenseman Michael Stone, signing him to a 3-year, $10.5 million deal.

Stone was set to become an unrestricted free agent on Saturday, if a deal wasn't done, but the 27-year old came to terms with the team that acquired him at the trade deadline last season, also finishing off the trade transaction, as the Coyotes will receive a conditional draft pick, because Stone re-signed.

In the 2017 season, Stone finished 117th among all defensemen in scoring with 3 goals and 15 points in 64 games between Arizona and Calgary, just outside of the top 100 he'd need for a full post.  Still, the Flames make him the fifth defenseman on the team being paid more than $3 million and they'll really have to squeeze his time in.
