Gauthier for almost any player that ever suited up in the NHL. I dont think any other Flame player has been the subject to so many trade rumours as Gauthier.

Wish we would of grabbed Loungo when we had the chance.

I remember at the time, the papers likened the deal of Parrish and Kvasha to Savard and Wilm. I assume it would have taken more (but you never know with Mad Mike), but I guess Savard was at the centre of another deal.

According to CTV Sportsnet, Button offered Iginla for Peca straight up and Regeir turned it down.

Yes! I remember when that happened. The Jets thought they could sign him for less if no other teams offered him a contract, but the Flames did, forcing the Jets to up the ante. I remember my dad was pretty PO'd at my team! (family rivalry). Anyways, since then Selanne always killed the Flames when the Jets played them. Whenever I played hockey on videogames I always traded for Selanne, he just seemed to be such a good fit!

I recall last season Sutter really wanted to acquire Harvey, but it didn't happen due to his salary.

Al Coates was prepared to reacquire Doug Gilmour from Chicago "for the fans." The Blackhawks were looking to unload his salary. This would've been strictly a PR move, not to mention an organizational admission of the huge blunder of sending him to Toronto. This would've been the type of deal that a playoff team would do right before the trade deadline. The Sabres did exactly that.

In NY, we heard it the other way around. The Sabres asked for Iginla in return for Peca, and the Flames essentially hung the phone up.

The year that the Flames drafted Saprykin, the Isles and Flames apparently had some conversation about the pick that Calgary eventually traded to the Ranger$. I recall hearing that the Flames wanted Brad Isbister in return (who, at the point, was still a stud powerforward prospect). I've also heard that Luongo's name came up at the time, but I'm less convinced about that issue.

Oh, almost forgot this one: Saprykin to Toronto for Antropov. Think it was another situation that somebody got hurt, and it scuttled the deal. Somebody must've believed the hyped created by Bobby Clarke asking for Antropov, in any deal involving Lindros. As it appears, Sappy has the higher ceiling.

We're not going to miss him if he doesn't ever dedicate himself to getting into top notch shape. That was his problem here and what holds him back from being an impact NHLer.

He played well under uncle Sutter. I got respect for you as a poster though, but I don't think he would of ever been a impact player. Im glad we got Langkow.

You have to give Sappy credit for a few huge hits that really helped the Flames. Injuring Chelios and a few others (can't remmber who, but I am sure he injured 1 or 2 other players). With the right development and motivation I think Sappy could still be a #2 line player or a solid #3 player.

I agree with this man.

Smacking Chelios was great, a highlight.

I remember back in 1991/1992 there was talk of a MacInnis/Tocchet deal. However, Philadelphia also wanted a big centerman and were looking to expand the deal so that Joel Otto would be a part of the package. When that didn't happen, it wasn't long after that the Flyers sent Tocchet to Pittsburgh for Mark Recchi.

Good thing for the Flames, Button is bagging groceries right now.

Don't forget the huge blunder itself: Gilmour for Leeman instead of Yzerman -if you can believe it.

As a sharks fan, let me be the first to say thank god this rumored Sturm/Hannan deal didn't go through. I don't mind the Kiprusoff deal so much, because Kipper wouldn't have flourished in SJ, and I would still rather have Nabokov over Kiprusoff (Kipper need to have another strong NHL season to prove himself. The World CUp was so close to the end of last season that he could have had some "residual streak" left in him.

Besides, you don't really want Sturm or Hannan anyway.

A Sturm - Langkow - Iginla would be not a bad top line at all.

Sutter has a really good eye if that Hannen report is true.

Considering he was the one that drafted him in San Jose. Plus he took Dion Phanuef, and gems in the later rounds. Sutter is pretty much the architect of that San Jose team there, he beat his own team in the Western Finals last year. Sutter is the man.

Before Matthew Lombardi got drafted, it was believed that Craig Button and the draft team were preparing to re-draft Jarret Stoll. It's not commonly known if this was to sign and develop him or attempt to trade him again. Since there was already a similar (but older) player in the system, Blair Betts, it seemed unnecessary. All things being equal, Stoll probably has a higher upside than Betts. However, since the Oilers nabbed Stoll, and the Flames retaliated by snapping up Lombardi, who'd been in a similar situation to Stoll's, it could be viewed as a de facto trade between Edmonton and Calgary. Most of us probably agree that it worked out for the better.
