I'm not sure any team is going to panic this early in the year and give up their first rounders or take on our big contracts. Considering the cap-hit is mostly absorbed by the receiving team this early. Look at the other teams around the league; most contenders are up against the cap, and most teams with plenty NHL cap-space have an inside cap or financial problems, and several teams are still thinking about the future and need their picks & prospects, so tha't leaves a hand full of teams, but the Flames roster can't be distributed among so few teams.
