This weekend's activities in Los Angeles passed by with the Flames doing very little. I'm not actually surprised that they didn't move a body or two during the draft, largely because teams that have limited assets aren't often able manufacture anything worthwhile. Making chicken salad usually does actually require the proper ingredients, if you catch my drift. That noted, even by Calgary's standards, this weekend's series of selections was straight vanilla, no chaser.

In a rather uneventful weekend for the Calgary Flames, they managed to pull off one minor deal, sending the 163rd pick overall (6th round) to the San Jose Sharks for 6-5, 215lb. goaltender Henrik Karlsson.

So, after two days of drafting in Los Angeles, the weekend comes to an end without a "big move" from GM Darryl Sutter and the Calgary Flames. They made one deal and drafted six players, but the feedback I'm getting seems to point to a little disappointment.

For those disappointed with the Flames lack of movement during the first round, the second day of the draft would provide no succor. The Flames were similarly quiet on day two, making just one minor move in dealing their 6th round choice for 27 year old goaltender Henrik Karlsson.

Just had a chance to talk with Calgary Flames General Manager Darryl Sutter as he gets set for his first pick of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. There has been speculation leading up to the draft here in Los Angeles that Sutter might make move to get a pick in the top 60 picks, but that doesn't seem to be in the cards.
