Nylander to Flames?

They was a thread written earlier today that stated wsh: Nylander & Poti coming to Cal for Cal: Lombardi and Sariach. Now I read on Hockey Buzz by Eklund that a deal was being done that would send Nylander our way but there was no names about who we would be parting with. What do you think of this? Obviously we will have to dump some salary to get him. And hes 36! I dunno if this is a move we need.

No way Sutter would do something like that, especially with that contract and his age.
But whatever, it's Eklund.

No thanks. Isn't Nylander signed for like 2-3 years? It would seem to go against Sutter's youth movement. I don't think Lombardi is going anywhere especially for an aging Nylander.

No, because A) We're over the cap, and B) He makes more than Sarich and Lombardi combined. Pass.

That would be GREAT from an Oilers POV. He backed out of a deal to sign there and then he gets dealt just a few hundred miles south. I'd love to see him rag dolled by Oilers on a regular basis and I wouldn't miss having to deal with Lombardi's speed.

That's the worst reason to go after a player. We don't need an aging centerman - we could have kept Yelle for a quarter of Nylander's price, plus Yelle is loved here. And Sarich > Poti, any day of the week.

Im not saying we need him or even that we're actually going after him... I was saying that Eklund is running out of rumors so he's making a rumor off of a rumor that the Oilers are going after him.

Nylander would be the type of player we could use for the PP and the glaring hole behind Langkow at center (considering I just don't believe Lombardi will be that guy). But it makes zero sense financially.

But it's more just the case of a rumor being, like "Nylander is a good 2nd line C who's (possibly) for trade.. who needs a 2nd line C?.. Calgary!.. Breaking rumor: Nylander to Calgary..."

Moreau, Souray, Stortini (once in a great while), Peckham (if he makes the team), and Erik Cole.

Also Penner IF he ever desides to use his size to play big.

Cole and Moreau will provide some hard hitting hockey as long as they stay healthy.
