I could see them having some interest in Kotalik (he was awesome last year for Edmonton), but i'm sure they have seen him play this year. And it is a bad contract.
So to look at it from Calgary's point of view, they get Higgins as a rental (wooooo!!!!) and Kotalik for another 2 years... for Jokinen... someone who would actually be valuable in a playoff run. Besides, they could easily get more for him, IMO
SBOB words it better here. Which is why I think Callahan would be part of it. Callahan is on a different level in terms of value, compared to Prust, Higgins and Kotalik
Callahan will not be traded for a rental. Jokinen is not producing in Calgary and apparently he wasn't planning on resigning.
Kotalik has been a 20g scorer for the better part of his career. He can also play the PP.
