In terms of volume, it does remind me alot of gilmour to Toronto. There were a ton of players moved in that deal, but it was just the beginning for the flames who gutted the core of a pretty decent team. They kept fleury but basically got rid of the core guys Joe niewendyk, macinnis, and Roberts (to a career threatening injury), and they didn't get a whole lot back for their present or future outside of iginla.
