Well, Coates finally got Giguere back.

Actually, I think this is an astute move. Al Coates is a very smart hockey man, one of the best real old timer GM's remaining.

Coates built the Flames to what they are. He traded for Iginla and Regehr, and was fired after he expressed interest in keeping J-S Giguere, now a Conn Smythe winner, over Fred Brathwaite, the guy who was used to acquire their backup goalie, Roman Turek.

Also, I'm not sure, but was he fired before the Leopold deal. If not, there's another deal he made to make the Flames what they are.

Yeah, roster-wise, I think it's Darryl Sutter who led the team there.
