Flames looking to bolster roster

The Calgary Flames have been fairly active this month, and while the team has taken care of some internal matters, GM Brad Treliving is always looking for ways to improve his team.

The Flames locked up forward Joe Colborne, goalie Joni Ortio and top-pick Sam Bennett last week and Treliving still has items to take care of.

"You're continuing to look at how to get better," Treliving told the Flames website. "That's the job. How do we get better? Sometimes those are little steps you're taking.

"By getting these contracts done, it makes us better but we've got lots of work to do. This isn't something we close the book on and say 'we're done.' We'll continue to work here. We've got lots of time before training camp.

"Those days will be spent on finding ways to see if we can get better and see what is out there."

The Flames have roughly $17.3 million in available salary cap space, with only restricted free agent Lance Bouma to re-sign from the current roster.

Treliving is still believed to be in the market for a top-six forward, despite signing Mason Raymond on July 1.
