HF fans will be irate, but I think Connolly will garner some serious interest this offseason. Teams like Anaheim and Chicago are in need of a #2 center and both could be interested. And with how far most teams are from the cap still, he can easily slide into most teams line ups.
are you joking, connolly? why would calgary give up jokinen to replace him with connolly who hasn't played a 75+ season since 2003, plus hes around the same age as olli too

I actually think that outside of Baertschi, Jankowski and Gaudreau, Reinhart is our only other prospect that there is 0 chance of being moved.

I wouldnt want Grabovski's 5.5million or close to it. Definitely dont want to move Kipper for him either, not something that would work for either side

When I said that I forgot about you guys just letting Jokinen go. Thinking about it now it's clear you're going in a different direction. Unless Jokinen refused to sign in Calgary? But I never got that sense, he probably has said something along the lines of him loving Calgary and hoping to stay I am assuming.

ya i really like reinharts game, but with backlund, jankowski, and byron i can see reinhart being expendable although i think he is going to be better then byron and maybe backlund unless he really steps it up this year.

I'm still surprised at what Jokinen signed for. I was expecting more. Just shows how little interest Calgary had in resigning him I guess.

TO would not like the offer, I think the best we would offer would be a package of Backlund and Babchuk.

Grabovski would be the best centre that Calgary has had in YEARS.

You'd be lucky to have him, especially for an older, soon-to-be UFA goaltender.

Backlund will be moved before Reinhart. Reinhart is an over-achiever and those are the players you want on your team. Jankowski is three years away from getting a chance in the NHL and probably five from really contributing, if he develops. Reinhart will make the jump some time this winter. Byron is minor league fodder. If the Flames can get something for him they should do just that, and fast. Of the players listed I would say that Reinhart has the greatest potential to make the biggest long term impact. He's skilled and can play in almost any situation. He also brings a great attitude and leadership. You don't give up players like Reinhart if you're trying to build a winner.

As others have said Cervenka will likely take Jokinen's spot. I don't think the Flames would have interest in Grabovski, even if he is a surer thing.

The guy they let walk in free agency outscored him.

If by years you mean a month than yes because Jokinen was better here.

I move Grabovski for Backlund, Nemisz, and a 2nd round pick.

Also, I never want to trade with the Leafs again haha.
ps but what is a ballpark for what Leaf's fans would want from the Flames? I always find relative values interesting
Toronto to Calgary is like Boston to Toronto as far as least desired trade partners.

He is? How do you know that? Goalies have a much different shelf life than other players.

And I still wouldn't do it. Grabovski is not the type of centre we need, and Kipper single-handedly carried our team out of the basement last season. We're not giving up an elite goaltender for an overpaid 2nd line centre.

Please, keep Grabovski, we'll be happy NOT taking him and keeping Kipper instead. Sound fair?
