I'm not totally sold on it, but its something to consider and it does make some sense considering the Weisbrod connection.
@ Glen, we could trade Stempniak but that's a really uncommon move considering we just resigned him to a fairly good value deal. The thing to do IMO would be to treat it almost as if the player has a NTC, and ask him "hey, we got this offer for you and the team really likes you, would you be ok with this"? If they say no, I wouldn't do it. The Flames are already considered not a premier destination for FA's, doing that would only make it that much harder to sign future FA's.
I do like Mueller, hopefully the rumor is true.
Yea I wouldn't want to trade Stemps if he didn't want to but it is a business and if he isn't going to make the team I am sure he would accept a trade.
