Only the idiots who couldn't handle the fact that Bouwmeester wasn't living up to the unrealistic expectations and hype they created in their heads.

And salary isn't even a concern. The Flames are rebuilding; they're not going to be spending to the cap anyway. More likely, especially if the rumors of the Flames refusing to retain any salary on this trade are true, Calgary's going to be a cap floor team for the foreseeable future.

Is that sarcasm?

Your GM just traded for a 'protected' first rounder so no matter what St. Louis does, they're still screwed! Miss the playoffs and it becomes a 4th, make the playoffs and yes, you get a 1st but it's not as good in the selection. A 1st next year means????? What's the prognosis on how good that draft will be? How good will St. Louis be next year? It's way too iffy and unknown so I think it's a horrible deal and when you factor in these AHLers and Swiss League goalie (who is that guy? Is he any good?), it looks even worse.

They are rebuilding but they cannot even get decent prospects for their top players (Iginla and Bouw.). Wow.

And I wonder why top-2 goalie in Europe isn't even a starter of Swiss NT in the WC. If the Flames are truly goint to begin next season with Ramo and Berra as their goaltending tandem.. Wow, that's gonna be brutal

They need to pry FLorida's first way somehow. The cornerstone players are in the top 3. After that, it's probably a crapshoot like every other draft, but who knows. Having those two late 1sts could be really good. Carter/Richards, Getzlaf/Perry.

I know you must have missed a part of the phrase accidentally, but this typo makes it sound sadistic and perverted.

We are the only team to get 1st rounders in any trade and most likely will be the only up to the deadline. People are whining that Feaster is not taking quality, yet whining we got a 1st rather then two 2nd's ......

Get my facts straight? Are you kidding me? What's there to straighten out? Berra was a backup, Stephan stunk really bad, Berra got his chance to step in in the games that didn't really matter. You can twist facts and stats (minutes and games played, for example) your way but we both know it was like that.

For anyone interested in seeing Berra play, here's a game from the last Spengler cup; in French, Kane, Thornton and maybe Loui Eriksson (can't remember) are playing as well.

I'm not worried Feaster has a MASTER plan right?
