Sutter came out and said he doesn't expect too much activity at the deadline from the Flames. This can also be translated as: Like I would tell you Mr. Journalist if we are going to be busy, i lie to the media about player movement on purpose because I don't give a flying crap about you.
Simply the Flames have too many forwards and logic dictates some have to go. In addition the Flames do not have a 1st or 2nd round pick this year so I would expect that the players moved will be for considerations not players. I can also predict in the off season a D-man will be traded, if Kronvall couldn't make the team on a one way contract this year I don't see why they keep him next year.
Hagman can stay if he brings his Olympic scoring to Calgary, he's been really impressive and I hope him and Kipper have good luck against the USA today in men's Olympic hockey, not because I'm anti-usa or anything but just because they play for the Flames.
The Women having some beer and a cigar at center ice well after the spectators had left the building is much ado about nothing. I do not here anyone coming down on Montgomery for his pitcher of beer walk, in fact I've heard it's, "... the most memorable walk after a performance in Canadian Olympic History...".
I watched a TV series on the summit series and at the end those guys walk on the ice with their beer and have a cigar, I'm not sure if that ever happened or not in realty but would anyone tell them they didn't deserve it? These women won Gold for their country and I say if they want beer or champagne or fanta give it to them!
Bourque at 3.3 mil per year is a good deal, in my mind the contract length is why it wasn't higher, they both said they wanted it long term but you can't believe anything they say. Sutter said Phanuef wasn't going anywhere two weeks before he moved... My question here is if the Bourque contract is 3.3. and Sutter gave him 6 years to keep it that low, what does Sutter have planned that he needs the extra cap space...hmmmm.
