I wonder if (as a thought expirement) we kept half of Cammy's cap and salary PHX would do Michalek + Runblad.
Doubt it. Especially with Feaster or Weisbrod at the helm. Maloney's the guy that managed to get more than the expected return for a holdout in Turris. Even though Turris publicly asked out and then proceed to hold out for the first month of the regular season, and everyone knew Maloney had to trade him, he still managed to snag Rundblad+2nd rounder. Even though he had no leverage, he found a way to create some - the Flames would get worked over in any trade with Phoenix.

I'm not a fan of the current Volcenkov either, but he could be someone the Flames go after, as they mentioned they'd look into salary cap casualties in the off season.

Looking at the free agent list, there's Hainsey, Murray, Scuderi, OByrne, and Fistric who could be targets. None of them are particularly good, but they be serviceable at best. Scuderi, having already won a couple of cups, might be looking for one last big pay day - could be someone the Flames should look at.
