And Calgary didn't really acquire him, he was just thrown into the deal as a spare part. Looking at that trade it's obvious Ramo had no value whatsoever in it.
Actually several writers have said that the Flames wanted Ramo in the deal as they see him as a potential starter in the NHL and Feaster is a supporter of his as he drafted him.
