I hope he enjoys his reunion with Lou

Thought Kadri had a lot of sense for Calgary after the Huberdeau trade, just didn't know how they'd create the cap space. Moving Monahan, who really really dropped off, would obviously be big.

What started as a disastrous off-season for Calgary has turned out quite well for them.  Great signing of Kadri, which made a lot of sense for both parties.

Going from Gaudreau/Tkachuk to Huberdeau/Weegar/Kadri is pretty good for the Flames even if there's a good chance that some of these contracts look fugly.

In a hard cap league if you're willing to spend to the cap it's pretty difficult to be terrible.

Sure.  But it's not often a team that loses its two best players ends up being not much worse for wear, if at all.

Well it's not often a team loses it's best two players and doesn't choose to rebuild. Again, I think any team that makes that choice(especially if they "lose" one of those players by virtue of trading them) would be in roughly the same situation.

Really the only unusual thing here is that a player of Kadri's calibre was still on the market this long so that after losing out on bringing back Gaudreau they could reload within the same off-season. But even then the alternative is having a bunch of cap space next year.

Don't you find it weird that Kadri ends up in Calgary after refusing a trade their for Brodie?  Could have saved us a season of hell with Barrie.

7x7 according to Elliot.

7mil I think is fair, I'm sure he expected more and that's probably why this took so long, but 7 years is too long. Oh well. Good for Kadri. And honestly cgy gets comeback of the offseason here.

If it is 7x7 that's a pretty good deal as it pays Kadri as what he probably is which is a good #2 C and not a top 20 scorer in the league.

Honestly I don't care. It's absolutely his right to exercise a clause that was negotiated in his contract.

I thought Calgary was the best landing spot for Kadri as far as fit/team performance.
