Seeing the Calgary Flames deal Daymond Langkow to Phoenix in exchange for Lee Stempniak left me with a very similar feeling to Calgary's deal with Buffalo at the draft in Minnesota. While it sucks to see Langkow leave, I can understand the rationale behind moving a 35 year old forward who has played next to no hockey over the last year. He may still be a very effective player, but it's tough to see how Langkow fits into the longterm plans of the Flames.

With Daymond Langkow traded, Jay Feaster has to figure out what the hell it is he thinks he's doing. And fast.
The problem I have — as any observer of the Calgary Flames, partial or impartial, with a brain should — with the Daymond Langkow trade is that it quite literally doesn't make any sense from any angle.

The newest Calgary Flame is RW Lee Stempniak. Former Blue, Leaf and Coyote, Stempniak exploded onto the scene in 2006-07, scoring 27 goals and 52 points for a lousy Blues team. His unlikely 25+ goal season seemed to hint at a future high-end offensive player.
