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.

After the disappointing non-evnt that was day one fo the draft for Calgary fans, there's some anticipation that Sutter will make at least one or two minor moves on day two, be it in the form of moving picks or dumping salary. If not, at least the Flames will actually be making picks.

Updates and reactions will be added to this thread as things happen.

UPDATE - Perhaps the good news for the Flames is that there was a lot of unexpected "reaches" in the first round, meaning a bunch of quality players got bumped down the order. John McFarland, Stanislav Galiev, Tyler Pitlick, Jon Merril, Alex Pterovic, Brad Ross, Kirrill Kabanov, Jordan Weal, Tyler Toffoli and Justin Falk were all considered decent bets to be top 30 picks themselves. With that much quality still around, hopefully Sutter can take advantage today.

- For those unaware, the Flames picks today are: 64, 73, 104, 108, 133, 163 and 193
