[Millions] Cammy wants out?

According to Millions it is his understanding that Cammalleri has asked to be dealt.

Was just about to post this.

Interesting, and my instinct tells me to believe it.

I think both Cammy and Tanguay are gone on the 30th. If they don't want to be here, send them packing.

If he had just said the Flames played like losers he could have been dealt quickly. Worked for him before.

The Canadiens were playing like losers. I would have wanted out too.

Kind of disappointed, you could tell Cammy was still engaged, Tanguay had been mailing it in for a long time. Curious to see what kind of return we end up getting for Cammy, I'd be happy with a 5th for Tanguay.

Well, can't blame him. Love the guy but if he doesn't want to be on a rebuilding team then I can't hold that against him. At least he showed some heart down the stretch unlike Tanguay.

We need to stay somewhat competitive in order to have the casual fans to come in and watch! Unless if Feaster will just pay a bucketload at Free Agency.

Cammy's exit interview.

http://video.flames.nhl.com/videocen...ed-share-video

I think it sounds like he was unsure then about sticking around.

I think that 1 of Tanguay or Cammy go. Not both. And my guess would be Cammy given he only had a year left on his deal but we would have to take some salary back I'm sure.

Can someone post a link to the actual tweet?

All I see is "IF Cammalleri wants out..." (emphasis mine) and when directly questioned, he replies with a cryptic "that is my understanding"

So we're dealing with at least second hand information (Heard it from a friend who... heard it from a friend who...)

Tough to put too much value into this.

Are you serious? That's what we got for a rental Blake Comeau. Tanguay is a top 6 forward with a reasonable caphit who should return at least a 2nd + something nice. More if the Flames take a garbage contract in return.

Unless you meant the 5th overall which is also nuts but I'd be OK with that...

And on topic: Cammi should definitely stay over Tanguay IMO.

Tough to put much value into anything Millions says usually.

I already suspected this due to Cammy's exit interview. This just confirms it for me.

Tanguay was an absolute loser this year. So, since you don't fully understand what I'm trying to say, I'd be very happy to get him off the team, that type of crybaby attitude is what the Flames should be working to get away from.

I can't see why we don't move both, and just sign some FA, we will have a ton of cap space.

Stahlberg, Trade for Havlat ect.

And guarantee we finish last next season? Not a bad idea.

Seems inevitable that Stalberg won't be retained by Chicago, so yes please to him.

Yep, probably the way to go. Take some bad contracts with additional assets.

I think we should move Cammalleri to Brooklyn (sounds weird) for El Niño. Seems like a good fit both ways, and Nino plays right wing. The Islanders are competitive right now and should be for a while, so that ought to please Cammy, and Nino Niederreiter wants out because he believes he should be in the NHL.

I think so. I think that the Islanders could stand to pay a little more for Cammy than just straight Nino. He's the kind of player who could put them over the top.

That's highly probable closer in value. Still don't think Isles fans would do it.

Question is, would Isles MANAGEMENT do it? You could tweak the picks, it looks like a win/win.

The responses on the trade & rumors board are more favorable than I expected. I assumed he had insignificant value. Well except for that one guy who wants us to throw in the 6th overall for Kris Letang.
