If Hemsky were healthy and if we didn't have so many wingers I'd have to say maybe the Oil make a call. But hemsky isn't healthy and we have too many wingers.

Flames should add incentive and say they'll send a gift basket (possible a "Get Well" one as well later down the road) to the team who the team who picks Kotalik up.

Has Kotalik really been that bad?

He was good in pre-season. Then he got hurt. Came back and did nothing.

3 goals in 20 games really doesn't cut it; he doesnt stand out or doesn't do anything unique.

Has Kotes ever been good at all, though?

He played a month of decent hockey for the NYR and then started to totally dog it.

Had some nice seasons in Buffalo and from all accounts the management liked him. with the injurys maybe they'll snag him.

Or if they're not.

His contract alone is gross, and then you see him on the ice and it's worse.

Trade doesn't have to be imminent on the Flyers front. This allows them to bank extra cap space as well. Not a ton, mind you, but every penny might count later on.

This gives them space to acquire something like a 3.6 million dollar contract without losing anyone else from the roster.

We haven't seen anywhere close to the best of Walker. He missed most of the year due to injury, it isn't like he was going to step on the ice and play at a high level right away.

I understand the antipathy towards him as he was essentially the negligent return from Gagne, but he hasn't been given a fair chance by the fanbase. Not that I'm saying he's a 1.7 million dollar defenseman (who the hell gave him that contract anyway? That's as bad as the Jones contract).

6 goals and 8 points in his 46 games on Calgary... -7.

Not at his salary. The contract makes him completely undesireable.

Gee, Kotalik on waivers? Who would've ever thought? Thanks for Prust though.

the allstar game is usually a place where gms talk trades and now homer has the room to work something of value. the question is who is out there at 3.6 with an expiring contract who the flyers could reasonably deal for?

he's a ufa so I'm guessing a draft pick. 3rd rounder maybe? Would all depend where Carolina is in the standing come the deadline.

If you look at the standings and only regard pure playoff-upgrading, New Jersey, the Islanders, Toronto, Florida and Ottawa in the East and only Edmononton in the West are really out of the playoffs at this point.

New Jersey has nothing I'd want.
NYI: Moulson
Toronto: Kaberle, Giguere
Florida: Stillman, Dvorak, Higgins, Reasoner, Vokoun
Ottawa: Ruutu
Edmonton: Jones

Other than Reasoner all more or less meh.
