As many of you already know, the Flames have reacquired Mike Camalleri from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Rene Bourque.
Also involved in the deal are Flames former 7th round pick Patrick Holland and their 2013 2nd rounder. Montreal packaged goalie Kari Ramo and the Habs 5th rounder. Pertinent salary info – Cammalleri is signed for two more seasons after this one at a 6.0M per year cap hit. Rene Bourque’s deal runs until
2015 2016 and is worth 3.063M 3.33M per season (thanks for the corrections Rosscreek). So Calgary gets the more expensive guy, but the contract is two years shorter.
We will have a more detailed analysis of how this impacts the Flames upcoming. For now, welcome back Mike!
