Drew stafford??

I was thinking to myself what it would take to get this kid in a flames uniform. He's coming off a down year and looks like he is expandable, he is still young and behind iginla we really have no RW just a bunch of LW aha. Anyways I feel he could fill the second line RW pretty good. We resign stempniak and put him on the 3rd line. And our depth on RW is now iginla,stafford,stempniak,jackman which is pretty solid. Factor that with our LW depth (considering cammy as a C) tanguay, Glencross,baertchi. Pretty solid offence

Fits into the mold of the type of player Feaster wants.

So... what is your proposal? I doubt Buffalo lets him go for peanuts.

I'd like Stafford actually, but these teams are bad trading partners. Look at our 2 rosters, the Sabres actually don't really have any glaring holes, but they may make a deal involving Stafford to shuffle the deck a little. Any trade involving Stafford would likely be as part of a package for a bigger player on our team. Other than that, all of the other players that could be moved in a deal are expiring UFA's and would not be needed on their team anyways.

Idk, they may do something like Stafford for Nemisz and our 1st but I wouldn't make that deal.

I wouldn't move Iggy, Tangs, Cammy, Gio, or Bouw for him. So who else there? Butler and Byron? They don't need Backlund either with having Roy, Hodgson and Adam. Tough to make a deal I think.

They wouldn't, they would probably want an upgrade at forward if they move him.

A 4M dollar cap hit is fairly steep for a player of his skill set, I can't imagine his return would be astronomical.

Not a chance from my perspective, Cammalleri > Stafford.

It wouldn't be astronomical, I just think it would be tough to find trade a that fits. I wouldn't move Cammy for him in any kind of deal. They may want cap space, so something around Nemisz+ could possibly work. I just don't know what the + would be, they don't need D and the rest of our tradeable forwards would be downgrades to them. I'd definitely be interested in Stafford, I just don't know they need from our team.

Unless Stajan was involved, no thanks. We can't afford his cap hit.

With a abundant of LW's I could see one of them being moved and I dont want to move cammy or glenX so that leaves tanguay. How about tanguay 4th for stafford and Corey tropp?

Throw in a defenceman like Ehrhoff and babchuk and then is it close.
To Buffalo:
Cammallari
Backlund
Babchuk

To Calgary:
Stafford
Christian Ehrhoff

The Sabres are after the same thing the Flames are, that elusive number one centre. Stafford's one of their bigger bargaining chips in that regard. Bad trading partners is right.

IF the Sabres would do it....Would you deal Glencross for Stafford?

I like the fact that it gives us a Right Handed RWer...for a LWer...

Cammy and Tanguay can still be LWers and this gives us Stafford behind Iggy for RWers...

Between Cervenka, Backlund, Stajan, and maybe a UFA signing(possibly Jokinen) the Flames would have a decent start at a Top 9...

Not a chance, not just because he is my favorite player. But Glencross is cheaper, a better penalty killer, a better offensive player right now, and isn't afraid to play physical out side of Iginla he is the only physical top 6 player we have.

Stafford<<Glencross, unless I'm missing something from when I've watched Stafford.

Stafford has the higher offensive ceiling out of 2, but I'd pass on that deal personally. Glencross is already a Flame that loves the city and does everything right that it takes to win games (except for the occasional bone head penality). Glencross can also play RW no problem.

Again, I would definitely be interested in Stafford but I have no idea who we would send to acquire him. TBH, I think the only deal that would make sense is if we sent them Iginla and he would be part of a package coming back to us. Stafford, Ennis, and a 1st or something (not saying I'd do that deal).

No, if only for the fact that I don't want Ehrhoff's contract anywhere near this team. We're just starting to get away from this contract dilemma that Darryl put us in, I'd rather not add a bloated 10 year contract into the equation.
