Flames trade Blake Comeau to Columbus

TSN is reporting the Flames have moved former waiver wire pick-up Blake Comeau to the very active Columbus Blue Jackets for a fifth round pick today. Comeau struggled to score in Calgary and had a dreadful start to the season, but developed into a decent middle tier option for the Flames both last season and for the majority of this one.

Comeau can skate and isn't afraid to mix it up physically, but he's probably one of the dumber hockey players on the ice at any give time and he doesn't have the best hands. Few players can enter the zone, circle behid the net and then give the puck away like Comeau.

He's a replaceable piece and a 5th round choice means the organization essentially gets something for nothing given how he was acquired.

Thanks Blake! Good luck in Columbus...

Look at the effing haul Buffalo just got for a guy who wouldn't even stand up for his goalie after Lucic destroyed him last year? Pomenville also had a NTC yet somehow Regier got more for him than the Flames got for JBO and Iggy put together. Anyone still thinking Feaster should be in charge?

Pomminville has 25pts in 37gms, 5.5mill cap hit, has a NTC that only allows him to state 8 teams he cant be traded to.

Iggy was last year of deal, only one team he wanted.

JBow was 6.7mill hit, full NTC so he probably gave a list of 8 teams he would waive to go to. We could have got more to take back salary.

Pomminville could have been traded to 22 different teams, had a cap hit that is reasonable for his production and is signed next year.

What is there not to understand?

Im not happy about it all either but I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume Feaster has a master plan with all these high picks and cap space.

The good thing about going for playoffs is they will spend to cap, and do deals with cap heavy teams that should be more beneficial in the long run..

Make your judgements after the draft/free agency/when cap drops.

Thats when we can truly judge Feaster and co.

The truly sad thing is Philly had to suck this year.

Reports indicate they would trade Couturier for a top pairing dman with term still on his deal (and obviously not in mid-to-late 30s).

Problem is Philly wasnt on Jbows list of teams he'd waive for.

Pomminville is a 30 year old who has scored 30 goals twice in his career. While wearing the "C" on his jersey he watched his franchise goalie get run over by a player from their biggest rival and all he did was go over and help Lucic pick up his gloves and make sure he hadn't hurt himself. Yet, somehow he got a better haul than a top d younger def and a player who not only scores over 30 goals every year but will stick up for a teammate. I do not understand how we did not get more in comparison either.

For Regehr, Leopold, Brennan and Pomminville Buffalo received a 1st, 4 seconds a 4rth and a 5th to go along with 2 very solid prospects. Let's compare that to the haul we got. I am toatally on the rebuild train but not with this guy running the show.

He has aquired 2 college players that I think will surprise some people and probably, I know nothing special, a #5 defenseman. He also has 3 1st rd picks in this deep draft.

He signed Hudler, Wideman, and Cervenka who have all been pretty good for us (Cervenka not his entire body of work, but i've noticed some big strides in his game lately).

He got us capspace in a year where the cap is going to drop and handcuff some teams.

He has set us up for one of the most exciting offseasons ever, give him time to allow his vision come to fruition.

If he fails then he should go. Up until now most of everything he has done, that is considered negative, his hands have been tied.

Iggy and Jbows NTC's and Jbows salary hurt the returns.

All im saying is "Patience" people

Seriously, clYDE? You're denigrating 6 foot nothing, 185 pound Pominville for not picking a fight with 6'4" 230 pound Milan Lucic? That would have been like when Backlund picked a fight with Alberts and dislocated his shoulder (except worse since Lucic is tougher than Alberts and Backlund's bigger than Pommer). Pominville knows he's worth more to the team scoring than lying in a sick bed.

Some people ridiculously overvalue grit.

I'm not saying the Wild didn't get fleeced--because they sure did. But let's remember, this is the same GM who performed 3 consecutive trades with the same team (San Jose) and lost all of them. Irrefutably.

You're looking at it from the wrong angle. The bad GM is on the wrong side of this deal for there to be a comparison. I'd fully expect Feaster to get fleeced that bad if he were buying.

It would have been ridiculous for the captain of the team to stand up to Lucic after he ran over the team's franchise goalie. That powerplay goal he may score would have sure showed Lucic to never do that again. I am sure Miller felt that way too. As soon as he was no longer concussed anyway. Grit is so useless. Teams like Boston and LA over value it so much. What have they accomplished with all that grit in the past 2 years?

A combination of grit and skill is why they won.

I guarantee you Lucic isn't afraid of anyone. Some one attacks him after he runs over a goalie and takes a penalty, I guarantee you he does EXACTLY the same thing the next time the two teams meet.

We don't have much skill.

Grit/size/speed/skill wins. If Feaster can put that combination on the ice with all the money he's freed up, not ot mention all the contracts he'll have at his disposal, I'll take back every negative thing I've posted here since Feaster took over for Darryl. I will say Darryl would have moved the trio of Iggy/Jbo/Comeau for roster players. Which may not be the way to go with the cap coming down next season.

I know some have posted UFA lists for the summer. I'd like to see an UFA & RFA list. I'd like a few players similar to Dorsett/Prust/Clifford wearing the Flaming C on the 3rd/4th lines. And soon.

I also hope we go back tot he vintage jersey, both at home and on the road. Put the 2004 jersey in mothballs, as part of this rebuild.

Jay Feaster; prove to this fan you can rebuild our beloved franchise. The Wolf made this comment below:

"Preds get Filip Forsberg. WTH???!!!

For Martin Erat and a pick. One wonders why Feaster couldn't get Forsberg, as part of our rebuild. Great move by the Preds.

5 guys, led by their captain immediately going after Lucic will go a long way to stopping his nonsense. He is big and scary but needed to be stood up to. Then, you target one of their skilled guys if he doesn't get the message. And, you load up on him and don't give him a choice much like the Leafs are doing this year. That is a Babcock technique. His teams have always stood up and he rarely has a goon. But, he values grit a great deal. Teams know they have to pay against the Leafs and as a result Lupul and Kadri are flying around this year. I value grit a great deal. Especially when it allows my skill guys to do their thing. Grit/skill combo is elusive and something the team should look for.

I'd suggest the Flames see if they can entice Poile to let go of Rinne. It might take Baertschi and a 1st to do it, so perhaps a bit too steep for some Flames fans, but it would be building from out net out and he is signed long-term.

Stay well away from Luongo. The only advantage to that deal is that Gillis might not rip Feaster off as badly as Shero and Armstrong have.

Whoa now Rex. I usually like your takes but this seems like a bit of Oiler's flavoured sabotage.

Goalie's are wayyy to fungible an asset to spend a 1st and a great prospect like Sven on.

There's no way that the difference between Ramo or any league average goalie and Pekka is greater than replacement level players vs Sven and whoever we draft with that first, over the next five years.

It's just not prudent asset management to make that deal.

Smart play is to just to collect a bunch of goalies for very little assets and see if any pan out.

Between Ramo, the Swiss Wall, Gillies, Taylor, Brust and Brossoit there's a decent chance that one turns into league average goal tending or better.

Flames biggest need is skaters who can drive possession.

So you're in favour of a goonsquad strategy whereby you attempt to deter thugish activity by engaging in... thugish activity. Therefore entering into an endless cycle of retaliation, suspensions, and serious injuries. I'm glad coaches don't actually follow that tacic. Seriously, willfully targetting a skilled teammate of the thug because standing up to the thug didn't work? I can't believe you actually believe coaches think like that.

Grit is one thing. Mindless thuggery is a problem, and it sure as hell isn't the way I want ANY team to play.

I look at the Pominville and Erat deals and I'm in utter disbelief.

Why the hell did Feaster not wait until today to make those moves.

Compare Erat to Stempniak or Cammi.

Of course you eat some salary on Cammi, hell I'd eat 3-4M in salary on either of those guys for Forsberg in return.

Stupid, stupid, stupid amateur. Feaster is a bumbling idiot. Or to quote Mad Mike, "Somewhere right now, there's a village missing its idiot." Yes, we know. His name is "Jay."

So hung up on getting a 1st round pick of any kind.

What we got for JBo was ludicrous. That we couldn't have swung that deal for Forsberg is obscene.

Now, a summer of stupidity followed by another lost season and then forced into Oil country. When we could've kick-started the process in high gear years ago. Oh, imagine the returns even a single season ago with a competent GM at the helm!

Watch, Feaster will trade those 1sts for overpriced vets in order to 'win now.'

Edwards, you're an egocentric @$$hole. King, you're just a ruthless jack@$$ hatchet man. Feaster, you're a moron.

I don't think you are getting my point as I am not a great writer. I have never said goonsquad activity. I played against Babcock and Hitchcock coached teams and although they don't run around, the players on their teams know that if someone takes liberties with one of your players, you respond immediately and accordingly. If that doesn't stop the nonsense, you play extra hard against their skilled guys. Every opportunity to finish a check hard is taken. That little extra shot is given.If you don't think that goes on in the game, you are mistaken.

For those preaching patience and thinking Feaster has a plan, consider the last 8-9 months. 1. Trades a 2nd round pick to get Cammy back. That pick looks to be 31-33 overall. 2. Says the team is going for it yet at the draft does nothing to immediately improve team. 3. Signs Wideman and Hudler to expensive signings signaling that the team is going all out. 4. Goes after ROR and is willing to give up a 1st and a 3rd. 5. 3 weeks later trades Iggy for what may be the 30th pick which is not much better than what he traded for Cammy. 6. Got a mid to late 1st for JBO 7. Franchise goalie is retiring so got nothing. So, it kind of looks like we are rebuilding but wait. Now, he says they will be loading up and contending next year. Really?

He has no plan. He will just do whatever to keep a job. Is this who the Flames want to rebuild this team?

Doesnt look like anyone is out there, been a depressing night, no wonder. Im just very disturbed at what was said "My walking mandate from Mr Edwards is to make the playoffs next year" Yeeesh. He said the right things about Cap space & using that & the extra 1st' to retool, As long as that is used properly, ie. trade up & get another top 8 pick. If we just add salary for players teams want to jettison for peanuts, we will be so screwed. I think Feaster is a decent person but not the most savy GM out there to say the least. I hope he does the right type of moves at this draft. We need something to get us excited. Cant get out of my head if we were doing this cap space thing, WTF wouldnt we have tried to use Cammi + Horak or a one of our B prospects, eat a little of Cammi's salary for Forsberg? Now Cammi will not be tradeable after this year until the trade deadline next year. If we were going to shed salary, why not his too. That is the elephant contract in this mess. Thought I'd type this & now hopefully can go to sleep. Doesnt make me feel any better mind you.
