I can't see the budget being a big issue at this point. McAmmonda t 1.5 million isn't exactly a big contract. If the Flames were serious about being under budget, Iginla would most likely be dealt, or someone like Conroy. Players that are much more pricey and have more value. I don't buy the argument that McAmmond's 1.5 million salary puts the Flames over budget.
And I'm just curious here, but how would dumping McAmmond at 1.5 be a budget cut when you are picking up Hurme at 1.1? I don't think 400K is going to make or break the budget in Calgary. Why not just deal away a pick or something else for Hurme?
