Not surprising at all

The Flames need some cap space

Eriksson? Warrener?

Why the hell would we move Aucoin when the previous two are far less useful?

It'll be tough to find takers for those two, IMO.

Because nobody would trade for either of those 2.

People forget really easily that when push comes to shove, Sutter can just put Warrener and Eriksson in the minors thereby eliminating our cap issue. It might not be the classiest move, but hey, that's hockey. If you don't want to be sent down, then play like you belong in the NHL.

It's a simple as that.

we really only have 8 unless you are counting Pardy or Negrin... I think you will see the Flames keep Eriksson and use him as a 6/7 guy and the Flames find something to do with Warrener... whether its a trade, retirement or to Quad City... although I wouldn't be shocked to see both Eriksson and Warrener waived in hopes one will be claimed

Watch Flecther pick him up so then the Leafs can have another fourth line player.
