'"In adding Rhett and Steve to our hockey club, we believe we have taken another step toward creating the identity we seek for the Calgary Flames," said Sutter. "Both players have Western Canadian roots and are in the 26-29 year old age group which I consider to be the most important on your club. Rhett is a big strong defenseman who is a key fit to strengthening our current group while Steve solidifies our center position with offensive ability combined with a solid responsibility to the defensive game."'
