You are seriously becoming delusional. No one is expecting Kolanos to step in and take over the offense; he's being brought in to provide support. In case you haven't noticed, which you probably haven't, Kolanos is putting up impressive numbers in the AHL. Calgary is not clicking offensively like they should be.

Plus, I'm not even sure you've seen Kolanos play. Just because he's in the AHL doesn't mean he doesn't have the skill. Krys has more offensive talent and flair than many already on the Flames roster. Some of the stuff he knows, you can't teach. He's a natural talent with the puck when he's in the opponent's zone.

No one is reaching here, exepct possibly you reaching for straws in an argument you simply are not winning.

Any hopes of an imbalanced trade just went out the window, which limits the moves the GM can make. At a time when the team should be looking to make some 2-for-1 deals, this was just not a smart move.
Feaster can still do 2-for-1, 1-for-1 or 1-for-0 deals right until the deadline. Quit being a drama queen.
