I think it's a terrible move.

Calgary keeps trying to put off the rebuild and shoot for 8th. They are hurting themselves. They should deal Iggy, Kipper and Cammy and reload for the future. Esp with the draft being so deep this year they could clean up.

Instead they do this. Doesn't make sense to me. They already traded away their 2nd to us, this will leave them with no picks until the 4th round in the deepest draft in years.

Absolutely stupid move on their part.

I said that pick was in play last year when we dealt Cammy and this proves it. Even if we had to add something... If Colorado matches we should be all over Calgary trying to get their first.

Problem is that apart from Markov, I don't know who we have left with any value that we'd want to deal.
