Could Sergei Samsonov help the Flames?

Samsonov has recently been demoted to the 4th line in Montreal. Presumably he would be available in a trade; he's been grumbling that they don't seem to need him there. And if so, would/should/could we take on his salary? He's signed for this year and next at approx. 3.5 million per season. Don't flame me, I'm not necessarily advocating this idea. Just throwing it out there.

Samsonov has speed, and is very skilled. As a pure talent with the puck, he'd probably be our best forward. Samsonov is generally good for 20 goals and somewhere between 50-70 pts, and hasn't really dipped much below that.

So assuming he's available, what would you give up for him, if you wanted him at all? If he could be had for a say a 2nd round pick (I have no idea what the Habs would want for him, even if he is available), would you do it?

Yes for Tony Amonte and Jamie Lundmark.

Samsonov is at 3.5 while Amonte is at 1.8 and Lundmark at 600,000

Montreal gains 1.1 million in cap space for trade deadline.

Samsonov plays 2nd line left wing with Lombardi and Kobasew. Dynamic!

(P.S. Taratukhin takes Lundmark's spot)

I think a guy like Garth Murray would be a better option. A Canadian player would be easier to resign come contract time rather than a flashy European.

Flames Could use Samsonov's skill, but might just end up complaining about the way the team is run and he might not be a good fit for the flames..

With two goals last night, and another in the shootout, this is probably a moot point now.

Sammy is a floater anyway, Calgary wouldn't want him.

Hopefully, that proved to be a lesson for those with short attention spans (ie, those who don't see line demotions as motivational tools, as opposed to opportunities to drop trade proposals at HF). The CBC crew was congratulating Guy Carbonneau on the coaching job he did, which contributed to Samsonov's performance on Saturday evening.

Incidentally, the Flames could've had Samsonov almost a decade ago. The organization had a faction, who wanted to draft him. Those who favored Daniel Tkaczuk won out.

I don't think he is interested in playing in the Western Conference.

As a Habs fan who has no desire to see Samsonov go anywhere (despite all of these people pressing the panic button), I think Samsonov would do great in Calgary. I mean, I know he's not amazing, but the guy is a little fireball, I think the Flames could use a player like this. You guys could use a bit more speed couldn't you?

Too similar to Tanguay/Huselius, and no better than either.

We need finishers, not more guys with dazzling puck skills and consistency issues.
