Lost in the shuffle of Monday’s Jagr-buzz was the fact that Brett Kulak, Tanner Glass, and Mark Jankowski still had spots in the Calgary Flames dressing room.

Earlier in the day, the main story was that the team made headlines in the National Hockey League by reportedly inking Jaromir Jagr to a one-year contract worth $1 million.

But the side story was that they made a handful of roster moves, placing Garnet Hathaway and Luke Gazdic on waivers with the purpose of sending them to the American Hockey League’s Stockton Heat.

They also dispatched netminder Jon Gillies and defenceman Rasmus Andersson to their AHL affiliate.

  Post office workers grow vegetables, breed chickens on Paris rooftop 'farm' An urban agriculture initiative to make Paris more environmentally sustainable, mainly through farming on the capital's rooftops, has been such a success that the mayor is unveiling a new round of projects this week. Rooftop farming has boomed in the past years from New York to Tokyo via London and Paris.By 2020, the French capital will host more than 100 hectares (0.39 square mile) of rooftop gardens and planted walls, the Paris City Hall said. Of this, one third will be devoted to urban farming.

Mark Jankowski looks all but certain to make the Flames ; if he’s competing with anyone, it’s less For my money, I think the victors of these last few battles will be Lack; Bartkowski and Kulak ; and Jankowski , Hamilton, and one of Hathaway or Glass . Will Pedan make the cut ? 13 mins ago. 2.

Assuming Hathaway and Gazdic clear — and the Flames sign Jaromir Jagr —that leaves 15 forwards, seven defencemen and two goalies, meaning that by Tuesday at 3 p.m., one forward will be released.

Glass, of course, is the only one remaining that is currently on a professional tryout offer without a contract. Meanwhile, Jankowski could still be sent down.

But Kulak?

Just like last year at this time, he’s here to stay — well … at least until further notice.

“I was talking with Paul Jerrard (the Flames defence coach) earlier, and I said, ‘It’s a different feeling than it is last year when I stuck around,’ ” Kulak said. “I was really happy to be here and just excited to be around, even though I was just penciled in at that time even as just the eighth d-man at the start of the season.

Position battles helping to round out Flames roster

  Position battles helping to round out Flames roster Glen Gulutzan wasn’t sure who clipped his star centre in the nose. All that was important to the Calgary Flames coach was that the injury to Sean Monahan wasn’t serious. “He’s fine,” Gulutzan said after the Flames walked back to their Saddledome dressing room following a spirited practice at the Stampede Corral. “He’s going to […]Glen Gulutzan wasn’t sure who clipped his star centre in the nose.

“This year, it’s different. I just feel like I need to be here, and now it’s a matter of me getting into the lineup and working every day to improve my game and eventually become a top player in this league.”

The 23-year-old cracked the Flames roster at the start of the season and wound up playing 21 games with the big club and another 22 games at the AHL level.

In 2017-18, however, the blossoming blueliner is expected to take another step.

“As an organization and Brett, he’s done a great job of putting himself in this position,” said Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan. “(Last season,) that’s a great development year for a young defenceman.

“He’s on a good path of development, and his expectations should be to not only stay here but be an everyday NHL player.”

As for Jankowski and Glass, the jury is still out as to what shakes down with the pair of forwards.

During Monday’s practice, Glass skated on the left side with Matt Stajan and Freddie Hamilton (who rotated at right wing with Curtis Lazar), while Jankowski was the extra skater.

Flames' goals are faster start, longer finish

  Flames' goals are faster start, longer finish CALGARY - The Calgary Flames' 2016-17 season started slow and ended too quickly. The Flames overcame a sluggish October and November to go 45-33-4 and claim a wild-card playoff berth, but were swiftly eliminated in four straight losses to the Anaheim Ducks in the first round. Under second-year head coach Glen Gulutzan, the Flames are hoping for the opposite in 2017-18. They're already ahead of where they were a year ago in terms of systems knowledge and execution and are banking on a fast start.

No news is usually good news in the hockey business.

But Glass, a veteran of 511 regular-season games, won’t feel at home until he’s officially signed a contract with the Flames.

“It’s positive, all signs are pointing to getting something done,” Glass said. “I’m hoping that happens soon. But I won’t totally comfortable until I put pen to paper here, so hopefully it happens soon, and I’m looking forward to it.”

Since the Flames not officially announcing the signing of Jagr on Monday — a report late in the afternoon indicated that Jagr was working through immigration issues and would not be expected in Calgary until Wednesday — that means both Glass and Jankowski could be on the opening-day roster.

Jankowski has been an intriguing storyline all training camp and appears closer than ever to being NHL-ready.

The 2012 first-round (21st overall) draft pick is now 6-foot-5 and 210 lb. and looked much improved, scoring three goals in five pre-season games.

“It’s his size and strength and speed as an athlete,” Gulutzan said of the 23-year-old Hamilton native who played his first pro season in ’16-17. “He has the I.Q. Now he just needs the seasoning to get time here. He had a great year in the American League. He’s gotten bigger and stronger even from a year ago. Some of his (fitness) tests were off the charts, so he’s really put in the work, so he’s maturing every day. Now he’s just gotta mature a bit in the NHL, and he’ll be off to the races.”

So does that maturing in the NHL start on Wednesday when the Flames square off with the Edmonton Oilers for the 2017-18 lid lifter at Rogers Place (8 p.m., Sportsnet West/Sportsnet 960 The Fan)?

While Gulutzan would not say if that means he’ll play in the NHL or AHL, he indicated that Jankowski — like all prospects— needs icetime.

“Any young guy has to play,” Gulutzan said. “And like we’ve said with Brett, there’s a balancing act there too. And usually the player tells you those things.”
