Any kids the Flames would be willing to give up (perhaps in an expanded deal)? Wahl?

Interesting

Old , Declining player with large cap hit and NMC

Sounds like a perfect Flame

No chance. Only way we'll take Smyth is if you guys take Stajan and Kotalik. Then we'll have space.
Lots of entertainment potential here as somebody already mentioned.

lol exactly what I was thinking. this has got to be just a bit of tire kicking. would be stupid for the flames to bring him in, even if they could fit him under the cap.

**** off Calgary.

I doubt he'd waive to play in CGY though. He wants Edmonton.

The reactions from the various fan bases if Smyth goes to Calgary:

EDM:
CAL:
LA:

Did I cover them accurately?

Ugh ever since i started hearing these rumors This has been my number 1 fear.
Think about it all for a second
Smyth was reported to say he wanted to go Home. Home for smyth is Banff alberta, an hour away from Calgary.
Smyth also denied ever asking for a trade to EDMONTON...

It's a stretch but common.
I would not approve of this at all, unless he's coming for Stajan and Hagman Hahah!!

I would do cartwheels if it were Stajan going back the other way.

Which is really the only way this trade makes sense to me.

I'm okay with this, means Tambellini has told LA he isn't giving up anything of value for a player we can contently wait a year for and get for free.

Actually, it would be more accurate that way. Whether we or depends on who we traded.

why would this pressure edmonton at all?

The Oiler fan reaction would depend upon the price I think. People want him, but they want him for cheap.

well,it seems as though a deal with tanguay isnt happening... maybe this is plan b. ill say this though, if the flames can package up stajan in this somehow, itd be worth it. its obvious feester isn't about to throw the towel in on this season (the flames proved to be a good team 2nd half) so see what this club can do this year, and if the trade deadline comes around and not in a playoff position, start the rebuild. so losing stajan for the long term while taking a chance

long story short, taking a chance on ryan smyths contract for one season is worth getting rid of stajan long term.

This is exactly what Calgary needs, more overpaid 30+ players in the twilight of their careers.

Smyth would work quite well with Iginla. He'll just park himself in front of the net re-directing shots or burying rebounds and enjoy yet another 25-30+ goal season.
