One sticking point. Semin is a UFA after next season. Maybe if Semin was signed long term they'd be more willing to do this.

Bottom line: Probably not a trade the Flames shouldn't do, however Sutter is insane so I could see him doing it.

As an Oilers fan who hates the Flames I'm forwarding this to Sutter right now
Since i cant edit my own posts (im a bad man)

Seriously you think anything on your post mattered because the other side of the trade (it does exist) wouldnt stop laughing if this was proposed. It would be like if we traded ovechkin for iggy and calgary saying no because hes the face of the franchise. Yeah that fact not really important.
