Sure, he may never have come over with Price playing in front of him. But Calgary may have taken care of the goaltending position in post-Kiprosoff era with a very economical and crafty move.
I don't care about the Flames' long range goaltending problems and you mustn't extrapolate KHL performance to the NHL. Let's confine ourselves to the effect on the Habs. The LW hole on the second line last season was so severe that it compromised Plekanec's stats even before Gionta was injured. Look at Plekanec now before you say that Ramo may be the one player in the deal that really matters (and without knowing who the draft pick would be). I know I wouldn't trade Bourque, Holland, and a second rounder for Cammalleri and Ramo even if you paid me a commission.
