The Flames have apparently signed the tough enforcer. This came out of left field. I really thought the Flames were beginning to look like the 04 flames. They said they were going to be younger this season. This is a contradicting to that phillosphy.
This move also adds another 4th liner for the Flames. But there could be another sinister plot in Sutter's mind. Could there be another trade coming? Could the Flames be possibly making some more roster changes? There are quite a few bodies on the farm team from last year who might make it with the Club. The Flames have many 3rd or 4th liners, including Peter Vandermeer, so why sign Lundmark? Simply put, there are too many third and fourth liners. How many do the Flames have? Well, let's see. There are Prust, Ray Vandermeer, Curtis Glencross, Wayne Primeau, Kyle Greentree, and Marcus Nilson. I could add Moss, Conroy, and Rene Bourque. I did not even mention Backlund, Boyd, and Nystrom.
Which leads to my conspiracy theory that Sutter is up to something. There are just too many third line forwards on this team. Now consider Conroy and Bourque are locks to making the team, along with Wayne Primeau and Glencross. That leaves a whole bunch of questions, which means we have a whole bunch of forwards and not too many spots to fill. And after the small trade, Sutter told the media that he has a chance to make the team.
Adding fuel to my speculation, the Flames are over the cap with Warrener's, Erickson's, and Nilson's contracts. The Flames have 5 forwards in the top 6? More than likely, Sutter and Keenan are expecting Bourque to be the 6th forward. Or is Sutter trying to add a top 6 forward to the mix?
