SAY WHAT? Souray to the Flames?!!

One persistent rumour - that finally hit main-stream media websites Tuesday night - is a blockbuster trade between the Flames and the Oilers that would see Sheldon Souray, Andrew Cogliano and draft picks moving to Calgary for Cory Sarich and Curtis Glencross.

The move makes some sense. Glencross ($1.2 million US) was an on-and-off resident of head coach Brent Sutter's doghouse last season.

Sarich can still contribute at 32, but his $3.6 million contract is hefty.

The banished Souray has a cap hit of $5.4 million. Cogliano would help with team speed, and his salary comes in at $1 million.

But it's just a rumour.

anyone hearing this anywhere else?

Yeah, heard about it yesterday. Thankfully, this rumour was short-lived, as Mark Spector admitted to this being pure speculation on his part and nothing more.

Please god no!

If we really wanted Souray I would imagine we could get him for much much cheaper (if we had the cap room).

Sutter will never let Glencross go back. What a huge mistake by Oil management.

This "rumour" (speculation) made more sense before the Flames signed Morrison, as Cogliano wouldn't be a terrible fit on the #2/#3 line. Not to mention, the salaries don't quite work out for Calgary as they can't add much, and in this scenario they're adding about $1.5 million.

He was sent down to the minors today. The rumor was to spark some conversation on the possible locations for him to go. Not sure why Calgary ever fell in that category???

Definitely no to trading Glenner.

If we are talking trade around Souray I would want Staios first on the list.
