Word came down today that the Calgary Flames have sent Roman Horak to the Abbotsford Heat. The return of a healthy and functional Brendan Morrison plus the pending return of David Moss means the Flames have more than a full roster up front.
Nevertheless, the move still seems somewhat surprising.

Flames are fully ensconced in the softest portion of the 2011-12 schedule and have thus far mostly taken advantage. Calgary has taken points from most of the lightweights since heading into December and this evening provides another opportunity to claw closer to the playoff picture.
The Avs had the Flames number a couple of years ago and seemed destined to win every time the two teams met, regardless of how either of them played. The script has flipped since 09-10, with Calgary taking a majority of the games the last two seasons.
They'll need to continue that dominance tonight.

I was recently asked by frequent commenter the-wolfe to look at a hypothetical trade of Matt Stajan for Tomas Kaberle. The thinking is that perhaps the Flames can swap problem contracts with the Hurricanes while perhaps adding some depth to a blueline that is suddenly puddle deep.
On the surface, Kaberle doesn't seem like a terrible target. A former all-star, he's scored 40+ points from the blueline eight times, including 47 last year split between the Bruins and Leafs. Kaberle isn't young at 33-years old but he's also not exactly in the what most would consider the twilight years either.
