Flames add to defense, ink Butler for two years
The Calgary Flames signed defenseman Chris Butler on Friday to a two-year contract worth a reported $2.5 million.

Butler, 24, played all three of his NHL seasons with the Buffalo Sabres, posting 5 goals and 31 assists in 155 games.

Calgary acquired Butler, a restricted free agent, along with Paul Bryon on a draft day trade with the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Robyn Regehr, Ales Kotalik and Calgary’s second pick in the 2012 Entry Draft.
Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
