I doubt the Flames will even get the option to pick him up, I'd expect that someone within the bottom five would be willing to take him, considering he was popular in Dallas before, St.Louis has alot of injured forwards and he would likely crack the top 6 in Atlanta.

Even if he were still available by the time the Flames had the option, I don't think he necessarily does anything well enough to be an outstanding player and I don't know who's roster spot he would take. If picking up the 'shootout specialist' meant waving Prust, I'd be entirely against it.

Also, keep in mind reserving a roster spot for a person who's specialized in scoring during the shootout seems pointless. Thats a roster spot dedicated to someone who could contribute to earning an additional point in a regular season game.
