Flames really wanted an AHL tougher guy who is young and could be up on the Flames if need be. The Heat are the #1 team in the AHL, and the rookies are actually leading most of the way. Ferland has started exploding in production lately, and they don't really want him having to be that guy on the Heat since he does have upside (though he is more than capable).

Trading for a guy who just cleared waivers seems stupid at first - but there is definitely reasons behind such moves. He is definitely not the only GM to have done so, and both of these moves (this one and Russel) were good moves.

Look forward to seeing Lane contributing to the Heat. He is a borderline NHL 4th line energy guy right now, but is still young enough to improve and be a pretty good 4th line guy later, while helping to protect the prospects on the Heat (and allowing Ferland to concentrate more on scoring).

If the Flames picked him up off waivers they would have to pass him through waivers to place him in the AHL.

However, Dallas would be allowed to put in a claim for him (and assuming no one else did) and assign him to Texas.

So if the Flames wanted him for the AHL, which obviously they did, they weren't going to accomplish it by picking him off waivers.

His name is so close to Lanny McDonald the Flames couldn't resist.

Well done by Calgary, well done by Dallas. They can upgrade from within.

I don't particularly care for this trade. It is what it is. If we gave up the Ducks pick vs our own, then great.
The fact that Calgary hired a babysitter for Feaster, is a testament to his incompetence.

These are such minor pieces, people are reading way too much into this like the organization has to be shuffled around because of a late draft pick or some 4th liners who drop the gloves. He found a way to get a guy that was clearly available and keep control over how he manages that asset. End of really insignificant story.

Yeah because no one in the history of the NHL has ever hired a "President of Hockey Operations" except, oh wait, a lot of teams.

Maybe this was the deal that finally sold Burke on firing Feaster. It was one of the last deals he made before being fired and, as people pointed out, he could have kept the pick and claimed MacDermid off of waivers (I know that he said it was so he could assign him to the AHL without worrying about him clearing).

And the trade has ended about as terribly as it could have. MacDermid never returned to Abbotsford after the AHL All-Star break, and today he retired.

The Lane MacDermid situation got a little clearer. He's officially filed his retirement papers, according to Craig Conroy. #Flames

wow, interesting development.

Always thought this kid could carve out a 4th line role in the league if he stuck with it. Guess that's not happening.

I wouldn't be shocked to see a lot more players like MacDermid, NHL/AHL tweeners who have to fight for their career, retire early rather than risk ending up with CTE from repeated pummelings in the AHL.

Hockey will be better off without them.

Honestly, I look at a team like Boston, especially when Thornton is out, who roll a fourth line like Paille, Campbell, Thornton/Caron, etc and I wonder why on earth a team like Toronto bothers with regularly dressing guys like Bodie, Orr, McLaren. What a waste. Just roll a line that can actually play hockey. Guys like McLaren honestly should not be dressing anywhere, ever.

I'm sure his dad was the voice of reasoning here. He would be the best one to tell him that he's never going to carve out an NHL career

I remember this guy on the Bruins last year, he scored a goal and brought down Mark Fraser in a fight in the same night. Thought he would be a decent 4th liner but I guess I was wrong.

Wow, that is very surprising. He was solid in limit minutes with Dallas, even scored his first career goal in his first game as a Dallas Star.

Wish him all the best in his next career, I guess.

This guy is an actual hockey player. Otherwise, you are 100% correct.

Obviously they're tough. What does that have to do with anything? They're tough and still manage to dress four lines of actual hockey players. It's refreshing and it's how all teams should be built going forward. No Rosehills and McLarens.

He didn't do much fighting with Dallas, and I thought he was a useful depth player. Good luck to him in his future endeavors!

Bodie's an adequate 4th liner. I don't care for the others. But our 4th line could be Ashton, McClement and Bodie. I'd be happy.

Their team seems to be doing better than the Rangers and their extremely soft team with their "can actually play hockey" 4th line so i'm not sure why you're so worried. It's funny to hear this from the Rangers fanbase that has cried all year about how they wanted an enforcer and needed more toughness, and fans of a team that had Colton Orr for years and recently John Scott. McLaren is a better player than both of them, but he hasn't played for the Rangers so he shouldn't be dressing anywhere. Makes sense.
