Flames Sign Free Agent Forwards Tanguay and Jokinen

A couple of familiar faces returned to the Calgary Flames' lineup on Thursday, as the team has signed left wing Alex Tanguay to a one-year contract worth $1.7 million and center Olli Jokinen to a two-year contract. The financial terms of Jokinen's deal were not disclosed. In 80 games last season with the Lightning, Tanguay had 10 goals and 27 assists for 37 points. Jokinen split last season with the Flames and New York Rangers, scoring 15 goals and 35 assists for 50 points. These aren't terrible signings for the Flames, as both players should be familiar with the team's style of play and be able to make an immediate impact at the start of next season. Tanguay struggled last season in Tampa Bay, but perhaps his return to some old surroundings can help him regain his scoring touch. Plus, if Tanguay can return to his 50-point form of a couple seasons ago, his $1.7 million contract would be a bargain. Jokinen didn't seem to fit in very well during his first stint with the Flames, as he didn't have a lot of chemistry with linemate Jarome Iginla. It will be interesting to see if Jokinen will be able to click with the Flames this time around, but don't be surprised if he struggles to put up points.
