Despite not qualifying Blake Comeau, the Flames still hope to re-sign the forward -- just at a cheaper price.

Comeau struggled last year, collecting just five goals and 17 points in 74 games, and the general manager Jay Feaster didn't want to bring him back at $2.5 million. "We continue to be cautiously optimistic that we may be able to come to an agreement with Blake prior to him becoming a UFA," Flames general manager Jay Feaster said Monday. "We would very much like to keep Blake."
