You would need more since Aucoin has negative value. Probably a Aucoin, Lombardi, Backlund, 1st/2nd. At it still won't fit under the cap. Keep dreaming Flames fans. Maybe if you trade Langkow, Lombardi for him. But I think that would make the Flames much worse.

Or, we could just sign him in the off-season. Problem solved. Then we wouldn't have to give up all those assets.

I doubt Ottawa sends their number 1 center away. Who would replace him? Mike Fisher? It makes no sense.

Also, I don't see Spezza coming to Calgary for a UFA goaltender.

It's also hard to imagine Spezza leaving without hearing Iginla, Phaneuf or Kipper in the trade proposals.

I'm not buying it for a second.

I wouldn't worry...Calgary is just where one of Ek's darts landed on the map

And had Sutter not made the Kobasew/Ference for Stuart trade there was a decent chance the Flames would have missed the playoff all together and as a result not lost in the 1st round... Stuart gave Regehr the partner he needed as he had struggled with guys playing like Warrener all season... Kobasew was a non factor as he was hurt


plus Aucoin was acquired thru trading Zyuzin... he was not signed
