Krejci + Thomas, conditional pick if Thomas plays x amount of games.
Calgary gets a good straight across trade for their #1 Center they need, plus take a gamble on Thomas for the dropping of Stajan, which would fill Boston's needs.
If Thomas sits out, we take on about 2Mil. And get a 2nd round pick....or 3rd. But if Thomas plays 30 games and kipps is fresh, we can win some games. These 2 can win you games.
I think Feaster could fetch more, and it will look silly but maybe work.
That's a good tandom for their age, lol.... It would be crazy.
Or he sits out, and next year we clean off around 4 mil in salary, have a #1C and an extra pick.
Hahahah no shot. If you think the Bs would give up Krejci for JBo you are very, very misinformed.
Krejci in his 4 years has 3 60+ point seasons including a 73 point season. Is signed for 3 more years at a very reasonable cap hit. He is very valuable to the Bs which can be seen when he was the point leader in the playoffs during the cup run.
If Krejci is moved, which I doubt he will, it will be for an elite scoring winger or a top pairing PMD. Not for JBo and his rediculous cap hit.
Note: please do not argue that JBo is a top pairing PMD because he has not broken the 30 point mark as a member of the flames.
The only way I can see this having any truth to it is if Calgary is trying to move out a high paid player like Bouwmeester and Thomas has said he will play for another team and they did a Bouwmeester for Thomas swap. It saves the Flames $1.68 million on J-Bo's contract plus they could move either Karlsson or Kiprusoff and save either another $862,500 or $5,833,333 depending on which guy they move. If they moved Kiprusoff they save a total of $7,513,333. That is enough money to sign or trade for a pretty good D-man and still have some cap space left over.
Both teams are able to hypothetically get something out of this deal. Trading for a goaltender with a $5 million cap hit who isn't going to play doesn't sound like something the Flames would do since they are already spending more than all but 3 other teams at this point. They don't have the cap space to do this without sending out a good amount of salary.
It's probably far from the truth, but it is the only situation where it makes sense to me.
Let's say hypothetically that Calgary gets him for picks and prospects...or basically some deal that doesn't send a lot of salary back.
Would Calgary, in cap trouble, consider Cammalleri for Kennedy + 3rd?
Not quite sure how everyone feels about Cammy in Calgary...
Why would Calgary acquire a back up goaltender / non roster player for picks and prospects (something they have no intention on moving) only to move a legitimate top six scoring winger for a bottom six winger?
