Just heard Kerr interview him on the Fan. Even though its a 2-way deal he would need to clear waivers before he is assigned to the Heat due to his age. Surely the Flames won't risk losing him on waivers. Providing there's hockey next year, he's basically the backup or else he will be claimed for certain if he's assigned to the Heat. To me this all but tells me Karlsson is gone. I expect the Flames to keep both heading into training camp to showcase Henrik, then my guess is they will either attempt to trade him first or else waive him.
