Everybody wants the Flames to rebuild, but when you get assets like this in return, there's no point. This doesn't help the Flames in anyway going forward and it simply makes them much worse now.

There are teams around the league that have had struggling goaltending for years. You can bet they'd give up much more than all this junk for an elite goaltender. Otherwise, why trade him?
Disagree, a strong bottom 6 core wins SC's. Top end talent comes via draft during the rebuild. No ones trading top end talent for a 36 year old goalie, on a one year contract, elite or not. The other option is resigning, letting him retire a Flame and receive nothing for him.
