This was one of the worst trades we've made simply in terms of who we let go. He was a playoff God for us.
Being a playoff "god" doesn't give you the right to mail it in all year and be a sook while collecting 6 mil/year.

If Cammy was still here he might bought out in the summer instead of Kaberle.

Bourque even with no goals yet is a better player than Cammy so far PLUS we got a 2nd and Holland. Calgary got a 5th and a goalie who wants to play KHL instead of backing up.

That trade would be worth it JUST to get rid of Cammalleri's 6 mil cap hit.

He commented on the direction of the team (which he was right about) and then the fans dumped on him. Still managed to score 11 goals in 28 games with the Flames.

Habs fans are so fickle. He went from greatest ever to a four letter word in a year. Bourque has 2 points and now there's a thread about people needing to eat crow. Tehre will be a "buy out" thread made by the end of the year.

Gauthier was terrible.
No matter how you slice it Cammy wasn't worth his 6 mil cap hit. It becomes a cap gobbling albatross(almost 10% of cap) this summer. Imagine having to do with him what we just did with Gomez.
