I remember when news broke that Cammalleri had been traded. When I heard it was to Calgary, all I could think of was that the only player I would want from them is Bourque (because obviously it wouldn't be for Iggy). Then Bourque starts playing for us the way he did while Cammalleri is lighting it up in cowtown, and I'm thinking "Meh, whatever, at least he's in the west now."
On the plus side, the extras made the trade look half-stomachable (new word). Holland was underachieving and has really started picking his game up shortly before the trade, and has continued on that path. The 2nd is going to be juicy is Calgary finishes as low as it looks like they could. Ramo still hasn't stepped foot onto an NHL rink for Calgary.
As far as the main pieces go, it's a slight edge to Calgary, given how well Cammy played for them last season. The side dishes give us the overwhelming victory on that part of the trade.
All in all, I'm calling it even for now. It could potentially be a win-win-and-no-loser trade if Ramo ever comes over and plays well, and if their 2nd lands us another servicable NHL prospect to compliment Holland.
(haven't even mentioned the cap space, I definitely don't belong on HF)
