With a GM just stupid enough to pull it off. Feaster must think he's still in the terrible SE division or something. his moves make me laugh.

I don't buy the 'not a cap team' talk after this Wideman deal.

Same thing was said about JFJ when he was in Toronto.. We know though that ownership and upper management was pressuring him to 'win now'

IMO Feaster's going through the same thing in Calgary. I don't think he's that stupid, just stuck between a rock and a hard place. Wouldn't mind taking advantage of it though

Bozak > Backlund. If they want Lambo for him then sure. If they want Mac, then no.

I'd give up a crap load for Baertschi though.

Quick just cashed in -- 10 year deal.

Bernier would be nice although most of you will probably disagree. Not an upgrade on Reimer right now but absolutely in the future.

Backlund has a lot of potential, don't knock him down.

I'd prefer Brassard if we are going for a 2nd/3rd line tweener with potential

I'd do it. We have depth in the defense area. So moving holzer for another first rounder and a slick playmaker who is a center with good two game is cool by me.

Brassard won't be traded, from the sounds of it he turned it around when the new coach came. They also don't have much depth in the center area for the top six. I'd like him but I dont see us getting him.

If it was Franson then sure. I love franson, but we have too many offensively minded dmen right now.

That deal frees up some capspace for bigger fish at the same time.

I think Backlund's potential is a bit overblown. He hasn't shown at any level that he has top six offensive ability. He'll most likely be a good third line centre, similar to Chris Kelly.

This. He's nothing to write home about. I wouldn't care to lose Lambo/Holzer though.

I thought he played pretty outstanding when he was called up from Abbotsford. Wasn't he sent down due to the numbers game and due to players returning from the IR?

He's fairly young as well.

Hope we go after no one.

Burke has already ruled out Parise and Suter. Not that they want to come here anyway.

I think it'll honestly be another long year in Toronto so prepare yourself for that. This team is constructed with so many holes up front. They want to instill more size but I hope its not by adding plugs on the fourth line.

We need to transition Jerry D'Amigo and Nazem Kadri to the NHL and give them a full year to gain experience.

If we suck knowing we're letting our youngsters play and develop, then I'm fine with that.

But if we suck while being up against the cap then I hope to God Burke along with his whole management crew is let go at the end of the year.

The question is will Olli return as a flame. If he does then I guess Backlund 'could' be available if we give them something they can't say no to. But if Olli is gone July 1st, then it makes sense that he'd be in their lineup to start the year.

I don't know and there aren't much about it is there? He had a productive year there.
