What if we add one of our late round picks to Cammy?
Lets say Cammy (salary retained) +22nd overall and we are looking for good young players that could be put in our lineup. Who could be had at that price?
Calgary gets assets to rebuild and Ottawa gets a top 6 forward that will help take the pressure off the young ones and help Jason Spezza and they also get a top 4 D-man that can step in and take some of the pressure off Karlson.
I doubt it. I think we can expect the Flames to be pretty active in FA this year since we have so many holes to fill, and since the team doesn't expect to be a contender for at least a few years, we can afford to overpay some guys to come play here. We'll hit the floor no problem.
My thoughts exactly. Hitting the floor won't be a problem for them.
I also would expect them to take a few chances on reclamation project cap dump players who are at a low value point in their careers like Ballard, Booth, Grabovski.
1. No 2nd rounder
2. Giordano will be the next captain
3. Not a chance even without 1 & 2.
Like I said add, this is just the idea and Giordano is 29 years old and will be 30 when the season starts. Is Giordano going to want to spent 3-4 years on a rebuilding team. In 3-4 years Giordano is going to be in the same ship as Iginla was this year.
