Calgary won't go for this. I like Poni, a lot. He's big, got good hands, solid defensively and has solid speed. However, Poni hasn't really proven a lot at the NHL level (granted, he hasn't been given the chance).

Even if Poni was proven, his MAXIMUM upside is not near that of Saprykin. The Flames take a downgrade for a 3rd round pick. I don't see any incentive for them to do this.
