But now with Higgins and Kotaliks contract out of the way id still rather have Jokinen (50 - 60 points potential) for 3 mil rather than Prust
Sure but without that trade the Flames could have easily had both. And Kotalik's contact is not "out of the way."
Best case scenario
is paying a guy 1.5 million to
play on your team next year. But more likely he's 3 million wasted for this year and next. Flames are already spending the 2nd most money in the league. Wouldn't count on them replacing that 3 million cap hit even with Kotalik in the minors.
