Hurme - 0 games played

Why again does Calgary do this? They deal away a goalie playing this well for a goalie that has yet to see the ice all because he is younger, has "starting goalie upside" and because it's Jamie McLennan. Hurme has shown me nothing that tells me he would be any better of a starter than McLennan. He could be had for a pick at this point, not the starting goalie and a top 6 forward for the Flames. Sorry, but I fail to see the logic in this deal.
Hurme

Total NHL 76 29 25 11 4041 176 1867 6 2.61 .906

McLennan

Total NHL 206 67 91 30 11369 497 4826 11 2.62 .897

McLennan has proven throughout his career that he doesn't have the consistency to be a starter for a long period of time. Hurme has shown the ability to push the starter and the ability and desire to be a starter.
