Why they do it;

Calgary gets a real good goalie prospect to step in for when Kipper bites the dust. They also get a bit of toughness to replace enforcer Iggy in Mr. Michael Haley.

The isle get a bonafide-rare top six power forward to play beside Tavares and a valueable 5th rounder. With the Isles drafting pedigree, this pick has a higher chance of paying off.

Thoughts? I think you're having psychological delusions.

The hell would anyone ever take on DiPietro's contract for. That is probably the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my entire life. You do know that Calgary's not hurting for goaltending whatsoever, right? Why would we take a contract of that size, unless the Isles are throwing in their 1st round picks for the next five years?

This is possibly the worst Flames trade proposal I've ever seen on this board, and I've been here since 2002.

Seriously, go sit in a corner and hang your head in shame.
