Yes some fans are that petty here you should see the ire Brewer has drawn over the past few years...

If you can afford Kariya's cap hit a 2nd would be fine by me.
with the way Sutter has moved 2nd round picks it would be easier to squeeze blood from a diamond haha... while we could fit Kariya at the deadline without sending any salary I would still prefer to send some back because of the cap issues we had after the deadline last season... perhaps Moss and a mid round pick (or a mid level prospect) for Kariya?

and I do understand why the Blues would want to keep Backes & Oshie, but I am sure you also understand why they would have to be a starting point from the Flames perspective
