    Different sources reporting Ryan Smyth to become a Flame but unsure if ownership will approve based on the $6.25 mil. cap hit. Not sure how Feaster thinks this makes sense to bring in a 35 year old that takes up that much cap space.

    • RKD

      Well maybe we can package our two(three) 2nd line centers for one, Smyth, Langks(Olli is the third) are at best second line centers, they are to old, to broken down and just don’t have that offensive production you are looking for in a #1 center. Smyth is okay, but NO ONE likes the cap hit and it all depends if LA is willing to take our salary back(doubt it), this trade just seems so full of fail.

      Course with Feaster hopefully he limits the damage, I know if Sutter was here one of those second round picks was now on its way to LA.

    I feel like everyone else on here does… I just don’t see how this ryan smith thing could make sense. If it does happen it’ll be interesting to hear the spin Feaster puts on it. I have a feeling if they do this it’s because they were unable to sign Tangs. I’m not sure what he was wanting but that will just make a lot of fans question what the heck is going on with this team. With these rumours going around it feels exactly the same as when Daryl was the boss.

    I’m just interested to see what actually happens and i’ll reserve my judgment until then.

    More interesting rumours, Smyth and Jay-Bo will be flipped to Edmonton for picks and that Iginla is on his way out. I highly doubt Iggy would be moved. I could see Calgary flipping Smyth to Edmonton.

    • everton fc

      Edmonton could simply give the Kings a 6th round pick. Why trade with the Flames…?

      Unless the Oilers have someone they need to unload… that the Flames would take.

    • thymebalm

      With Regher being made available, everyone is contacting Feaster to see if Iginla, Kipper, Bourque etc…can be put into play for the right price. Ken King and Ownership will never approve an Iginla trade unless it’s completely out of this world.

  • RKD

    Has anyone heard or read anywhere what the return from Buffalo is for Regehr? Is it Regehr and Stajan for Roy, Adam, Weber, and 1st rd (16th overall)??? That is just the latest rumor I heard on the Fan?

    PS: Ryan Smyth makes NO SENSE!! Just wasted cap space, also isn’t he a winger??

  • thymebalm

    @incarceratedbob on twitter (pretty decent as far as rumors) says Lecavalier is on the trading block. If we are going to get a huge contract, that’s the one. Do Feaster and Vincent remember each other?

      • thymebalm

        You can bet Montreal will see about swapping Vinnie for Gomez(with added bits and pieces)…close to same cap hit and Habs fans have been clamoring to have Lacavalier with them for years. I can’t see Yzerman being too enamored with Gomez…but stranger things have happened.

  • RKD

    Also hearing Smyth to be packaged with Regehr… regaurdless something else seems to be in the works for the Flames to make that trade… As far as Iggy is concerned, how many times does Feaster have to say that he has no interest in moving him for people to get the message? But who knows?

  • everton fc

    @Dano0049

    No way are we getting all that for Regs and Stajan!!

    I doubt we are getting a pick from Buffalo… it is rumoured to be roster players; but if anything this has to be a salary dump for Calgary to resign Tanguay and bring back a good young prospect or two…

  • Vintage Flame

    If he doesn’t waive soon, Robyn Regehr is a few hours away from performing a major disservice to the Flames. That of course is assuming a 1st was involved as was reported all day yesterday. Please Reggie, you had a good run, we love you, you’ll be a true Flame forever, but it’s time to do what 99% of the rest of the league has to deal with – relocating.

  • Derzie

    This had better be some devious plan to get something from Edmonton for Smyth or Flamesnation will come out howling for Feaster’s head. NO MORE GERIATRIC PLAYERS. I had to yell.

    • PDumes

      Smyth can go off an be a cry baby somewhere, goes and cries that he wants to come back to Alberta for family reasons and the Kings are gonna meet his requests and now he won’t move his NTC to go to the flames, only 5 hours driving south of Edmonton, what a little drama queen bitch, stay out of Calgary, K THX BYE!

  • PDumes

    Maybe Feaster can package Smyth and the 13th pick to Edmonton for the number one pick!!???!!! We can only dream…. If we throw in J-bo and ask for a young roster player in return, it might happen.

  • PDumes

    Some people are saying that everything is the same now as it was when Darryl Sutter was here.. Werid, maybe its because Ken King is involved in every single hockey decision. Even though he is a business man..? That makes sense right.
