Chicago-Calgary


Cammalleri (50% retained)
Butler (50% retained)


1st round pick 2014
Oduya
Brookbank

Hawks get a much better player than anything they have for 2C for the rest of the year. Flames get a pick and vet D-men for cap balancing. Butler is a UFA after this season as well, essentially replaces Brookbank for a slightly cheaper price. Just fits under the cap.

Cammaleri is ideal on the wing. Probably not best solution aa 2C

I guess I'd be okay with this. Oduya and Brookbank honestly aren't very inciting though.

Agreed 100% but we're comparing him to Handzus.

I think we could get more than Oduya and Brookbank for a 50% retained Cammalleri alone.

Absolutely!

What is is with people and this retaining salary business? Do people forget what that means? That means you are giving away the better player and taking back a lesser player that will essentially make the same money as the guy you are moving. Why do it then?

If you expect a team to retain that kind of salary, the return better be awful nice. Not just a late 1st and Johnny Oduya.

Everyone needs to read the Trade Deadline issue of the Hockey News and see how those late picks that get dealt have panned out. It should be a must for all hfboard posters. Late picks are no guarantees and often don't pan out. For some reason people think they carry huge value. These picks are often coming from the contenders so they are in the 25-30 range, but like posters around here "it's a first". So what?

Calgary needs good pieces not just a pick and players that serve no purpose to them. They would be better off taking a 2nd+prospect than a 1st+players that are useless to them.

You also probably wouldn't get a 1st for Butler though, so that's probably were this is supposed to make sense.

I can't really see Cgy having much interest in two 30+ year old defensemen as a major part of the return. If those are guys you have to move to make the cap work there would have to be some kind of sweetener thrown in.

Cammaleri would be a good add for Chicago. Be interesting to see if Chicago is where he ends up.

Rob Peter to pay Paul to fit a square peg in a round hole. And give up a 1st rounder at that? Wouldn't expect anything less.

As a Flames fan, I'd do this.

Then flip Brookbank / Oduya for picks.
