A couple things, IMO:
As much as Toews would look great in a Flames uniform, and he is from a couple provinces over, I just can't see how Calgary would be able to work around the cap to do it. Even the GMs that have Chicago taking on salary, the flames end up (-) in salary cap space. Even this one doesn't have enough roster spots.
Lucic isn't going to wave his NMC again unless it is to a very legitimate contender, maybe not even then with him so close to his hometown now...Vancouver, want him? I am afraid Looch is retiring as a flame, or we buy him out next season.
I would rather see Ryan, Bennet or Gio traded. I love Gio and what he has done, but he hasn't lead this team very far (more on the management and ownership than him though). As great as a person he is, we need to get younger, and move on with a new Core.
If we traded one of Johnny or Monny, I choose Johnny. He is been mauled by other teams now as they know this puts him off his game. He is a whiner and the referee are starting to show there realization of this. He isn't a leader, never a letter on his chest during his tenure here, and the off ice shenanigan's, although seemingly reversed, are a sign for change as well. Face it he doesn't even want to be here, he wants to be closer to Mom. I love Monny, and the two aren't getting it done together, start lining up Chucky or bring in another scoring RW for his right side so Lindholm can move back to Center. Anyways, excited to see what Tre does next, I am hoping it is now a change for the positive on offense. Cheers,
