I also don't think trading scoring for toughness is a bad thing when the Flames have no toughness. The difference between this type of trade right now and when Sutter was in charge making that kind of trade was the Flames actually had toughness then, so he was trading skill for toughness it wasn't smart. But with the top 9 winger depth the Flames have currently and the lack of toughness in the bottom 6 this type of move would be very different because it would actually be moving a strength for a weakness, especially with Hudler returning Sunday.
I don't think adding toughness is a bad idea but that is a step overpayment for a guy that can play 7 minutes.
