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.
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.
