(Proposal) Van-Cgy


Recommended Posts

The Flames are not going to be able to get prospects/picks for Cammalleri. His 6 mil caphit and 7mil salary is borderline untradeable and buyout. Booth and a late pick could get it done.

I like Cammy and think he is an awesome trigger man but he's an aging and overpaid. IMO, Booth is going to have a good year and unless it was straight up or something small no thanks.

Sure he's movable, you just wait until the deadline when players like this fetch reasonable draft picks.

"Booth is going to have a good year". Easy to say, but he's still not healthy and skating. LOng way from assurance of playing and playing well.

To Calgary:

David Booth

To Vancouver:

Mike Cammalleri

The Flames would receive a younger, cheaper, and extended player beyond this season, whom also fits the mold of that north, south style that they want to play more of. Given the reasoning for the Tanguay deal, and the fact that Cammalleri has asked for a trade, I think this is a no brainer for the Flames.

The Canucks get a guy that can produce a solid secondary number, and has been a very good playoff performer. He's also UFA at season end, and the cap space would be freed up, which could be used to make a significant UFA signing if availible. He would imo be a a solid winger for Kesler, and could take the draws on Keslers weak side, as MC has a career .53 success rate. While MC does not boast the size or net drive of Booth, he is smarter, more skilled, and would instantly make the 2nd unit PP a threat.

The Canucks currently have just over 2M in cap space, which would men that it would be a tight fit, but a fit nonetheless.

I would be shocked if CGY gets a "package" for Cammy. Unless the package was a 4th, a 5th, and a bag of pucks. Maybe at the deadline they'll get a 2nd and busted prospect. Noone is going to take on 6 million this season. Any other and they'd get more value back, Feaster has done a terrible job.
