reports are saying 2-3 months... with his slow progession I would go with 3 months which is essentially the Cup finals... the odds of him returning in any capaciy this season is extremely slim... and lets not rush anything lets give him 6 months until training camp

If he is able to return next season I wonder if the Flames will resign Morrison. Morrison really has been quite good overall this season. I would like to see him come back next year, but if Langkow returns where would Morrison even fit it? Also the Flames should not keep Backlund down on the 4th line either, he needs to have an increased role on this team next year. Ideally for me I would like them to trade Stajan (maybe the Leafs would take him back), and resign Morrison to a 1 yr contract for 1 million.

Trading Stajan, signing Morisson, and getting Langkow back would probably be ideal. But I don't know how we could get rid of Stajan, the contract is so long.

Well I'm not wishing anything bad on the guy but come on. The guy is coming off a major neck injury, if he tweaks it he could basically be gone for the season again, there's no reason not to re-sign Morrison especially with the money he'd be looking for. And look at it this way other than a couple of years(one of which he played 82 games) where he was going through groin issues he's basically been an iron man. You're getting a full season from him guaranteed.

Yeah Sutter ****ed up so bad on Stajan...we may not even able to get rid of him by waiver.

If the Flames missed the playoff, I wouldnt be surprised if Stajan is on waiver by season end.

I'm just as skeptical as you that Langkow will even make it back at all. But to me it is obvious his intentions are to try and attempt it. If he does make a comeback he will be playing in Calgary next season and the Flames will need to make room for him in their lineup.

I would rather have Morrison over Stajan on the team. His salary would be substancially less, and he can do everything that Stajan does and he has done it better this season. He is a really smart hockey player and his presence has definitely helped the Flames this season.

No one would pick Stajan up off of waivers if thats the route the Flames chose, which I think is unlikely. The best case scenerio is the Flames make the playoffs and Stajan performs well, thus upping his trade value and allowing Feaster to move him. Otherwise we would have to take back somewhat a bad contract in a trade. If this happens, the goal should be to find one that expires at the end of next season. Stajan is not hurting this team currently in anyway, but next season if Langkow returns it is going to be very crowed for centres around here and as I previoulsy mentioned Backlund needs to have an increased role on this team next year if his development is going to go to another level. So a move would need to be done to move a centre out unless Backlund or Morrison permanently move to the wing.

According to Boomer @ Fan960, he has been seeing Langkow around the dome more frequently lately, and it sounds like there may be progress.

IF Langkow makes it back in the postseason, or rather, his health is confirmed to be OK in the offseason, Feaster or whomever is in the position to do so really should trade Stajan, IMO. However, my opinion is based on Langkow's previous playing level vs Stajan's contributions now, and Langkow needs to be better on draws as well. I always thought of Langkow as the better player.

Feaster said (on the Fan 960) Lanks has been cleared of all risk of reinjury by the spine doctor, will be good to go in 2-3 months. Also admitted it messes with our cap situation.

Trading Stajan and/or Hagman needs to happen to be able to sign the guys who are putting up the points for us...

Not if he's coming off a year long spinal injury.

Ya but Stajan has a cap hit of 3.5 million for 3 more years. Both a lost cause

Stajan has the "age factor" and less caphit so in reality, he might just be easier to move than we think?

Disregarding caphits of course, I'd rather have Langkow on the 3rd line than Stajan.

It would have been great to hear that Langkow could eventually resume his life and live a healthy life without concussion symptoms, which is the most important thing here. To hear that he will be able to play next season on top of that is just awesome.

Langkow very well may be 1 hit away from collapsing like Moore and never playing again. It's not like he's Regehr with shattered leg bones. Speaking with certified medical expertise, as a paramedic, we generally don't approve of people with a history of spinal injuries playing high-contact sports. What's actually worse is that his injury was facilitated by a high-velocity impact, not a gravitational impact caused by a fall. The fact he took this long to rehabilitate was never a surprise to me, but you know what most people do when they recover from that injury? They change their lifestyle to a much more sedentary, easygoing one. Low risk, no heavy lifting, etc.

I'm honestly saying, sometimes you seem like you really know your **** about hockey, which is great. You are a real dumb ass when it comes to a lot of things that aren't trades or player value. 15000 posts, learn not to blurt **** out sometime over the anonymity of the internet.

If you really want to see him play again, you disgust me. It's the last thing he needs.

Ship Stajan to the Panthers in the off-season for a 2nd round pick, That allows us to get Langkow back in the lineup.

Tanguay - Langkow - Iginla
Glencross - Jokinen - Moss
Hagman - Backlund - Bourque
Kostopolous - Stone - Jackman

BOOM!

You might know hockey, but it seems you lack a ******** of common sense when it comes to not blurting **** out. 15 000 posts, and nobody ever tells you that? Get some brains.
Langkow has spoken with a certified spine specialist who has stated that his career and life are NOT at further risk and has been permitted to play in the sport once again.

Only that Florida owners are doing everything in their power to rid themselves of all contracts worth anything. Booth and Weiss would of been traded as well if they would of got the right package. I doubt they would have any interest in Stajan.

I think Stajan could be shipped to Florida because they need to spend a ton next year, and he is relativity young but no way Tallon gives up a second. He believes hard in building through the draft and will only look to gain more picks in the off season.

I thought I read on the main boards that they have 16M tied up in 9 players for next season, whether they want to or not they have to add salary, Stajan is a good player who is slightly overpaid that has exceeded in the Eastern conference before.

I dont think it such a stretch to suggest such a trade.

The spine specialist part is great, but to say he's "certified to play in the sport again" is ********. MANY physical players lives' after the hockey career have been ruined by post-concussion syndrome. I love watching this sport, and watching fights and big non-injuring hits, but when a sport literally prides itself on fighting through broken bones, I can't take "permitted to play in the sport" very seriously.

Keep in mind that everyday people recovering from hernias or slipped discs in the back are already recommended a low-labour lifestyle. Langkow is human as any other person with a far worse injury.
