Cammalleri ‘open’ to extension with Flames

It appears one of Brian Burke’s future decisions as the new president of hockey operations for the Calgary Flames will be whether or not to re-sign veteran forward Mike Cammalleri.

Cammalleri, 31, enters the 2013-2014 season with one year remaining on a five-year deal that pays him $7 million this season and is worth an annual cap hit of $6 million. (That’s according to Capgeek.com)

“We’ll see what they want to do. Truthfully, I got a lot of respect for (GM) Jay (Feaster) and (assistant GM) John (Weisbrod), I’ve had an open dialogue with them,” said Cammalleri, according to ESPN NHL.

“Nothing to report, but we’ll see what they want to do. I like it there, it’s a good place. I’m open (to an extension).”

Cammalleri’s best season came in 2008-09 with the Flames, when he scored a career-high 39 goals and 82 points.

Since then, he hasn’t played more than 67 games in a season, which has led to lower offensive numbers.

As stated yesterday on ProHockeyTalk, is Cammalleri someone the Flames want to bring back long term, especially considering his age and declining point production over the past five seasons?

Just prior to the NHL Draft in June, Feaster even made an open plea – “My number is in the directory. …Give me a call.” – for other general managers to contact him about Cammalleri.
