I think Flames would be wise to get something for him, and call up a kid.
There's no real reason to have him on the team, I think the teams strength comes from three lines that are pretty strong offensively. While he's more responsible than say a Jackman, when Hartley gave the fourth line a mission tonight, they were head hunting in the third and late second period. Blake, while he can hit, doesn't quite have the same fear factor Timmy J has, nor is he as defensively sounds as Jones or Begin.
I don't think he'll ever see another big time season again in his career. He's a decent enough player... but requires a ton of specifics to get him going... one of which was playing on one of the worst teams in the NHL while their superstar was still coming into his own. I'm sure there are some teams in the NHL that would require his services.
Maybe a Comeau and Sarich could be packaged somewhere for... really anything; a third round pick... anything to get rid of some dead weight in Calgary.
