FlamesNation mailbag: where did June go?

Folks, there’s a chance that we’re just shy of a month away from hockey returning. Or, it might not. But we have hope!

We also have several curious friends sending in questions, so let’s dive into the mailbag!

Milan Lucic just turned 32 years old and has three seasons remaining on his contract with a no-move clause. (It’ll expire a few weeks after he turns 35.) The remainder of his deal is $4.5 million in salary ($2.25 million covered by Edmonton) and $8.5 million in signing bonuses. The bonus-heavy deal makes buying him out functionally useless because there isn’t a big cap benefit to doing it.
