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.
I would rather move Cammy + Pitt first for Runblad + Michalek or play Breen over getting Volcenkov and that terrible contract.
