Today (actually, it is yesterday. Time seems to go fast, does it not?) is a dark day in the Calgary Flames' history. Today/Yesterday is/was a weird day. We dealt Dion. We dealt Olli Jokinen and Brandon Prust to the Rangers. [Dion would link if this was a Flames forum. Sadly, I never believed the Dion would link as a past player (i.e. Straw, Doc, and Cliff Floyd).]

The return was minimal for Dion. Victor Zambrano-like. Matthew Stajan, Ian White, Jamal Mayers, and Niklas Hagman are sent to the Flames. The Maple Leafs also receive Keith Aulie and winger Fredrik Sjostrom. Each player lacks the potential of Dion.

Stajan and Hagman should provide hustle and a touch of scoring. I do not believe either can produce more than 65 points and neither should warrant a role on the first line. Ian White can be a 4th defenseman, although I think he is better suited for the 3rd pairing. And Jamal Mayers is nothing more than a depth forward who can be physical. Jamal is useful, but his role can be filled fairly easily.

We received decent value from the Rangers. Chrisotpher Higgins and Ales Kotalik are coming to the Flames. I cannot say that I am happy with this deal, but it is the best trade the Flames made today. Christopher Higgins is a solid playmaker. He is injury prone and having a down year, but he has potential to grow. Kotalik seems pretty useless and does not fit our system.

The Flames have been struggling lately. The playoffs are still in the picture, but as a bottom 4 seed. Thank you to all who visit this thread and update it. This thread is like a cosmic being projecting light waves into space in hope that some other being will catch a glimpse of its existence. The Flames story will be known someday.

The Flames will continue to play. We have 62 points in 55 games. We are currently in the 8th seed in the West. We will play 27 more games in the regular season. Then we will look to cause an upset in the playoffs. As long as Jarome wears the C, we stand a chance.

Go Flames go!

Mike H, be prepared for a lot of "misses the net" and "wide" with Higgins. At times he would put in a nice effort but he could score (or hit the net) for anything with the Rangers. Kotalik is that guy that will score a PP goal and you will be like WOW, because he has a rocket of a shot, but then he will disappear playing 5 on 5. You also count on a few give-aways when he plays the point on the PP as well.
