Calgary Flames fielding plenty of offers for Mike Cammalleri

Mike Cammalleri might want to hold off on purchasing any real estate in Calgary. He is most likely on the move.

With the NHL trade deadline set for March 5, many league executives view the 31-year-old Cammalleri as one of the most attractive options available for teams that want a forward who can make an impact.

Calgary Flames-watchers anxiously awaiting Brian Burke’s next move

“We know we have a bunch of unrestricted free agents and Burkie will want to improve the team, that’s for sure. Burkie will make decisions — just like me, just like everybody else — for the best of the organization. Obviously, there is going to be some question marks. There is going to be some speculation.”

 

There is going to be — there has to be, right? — trades.

Hemsky and Cammalleri in play

Hemsky is an unrestricted free agent and will be traded to a team looking for a top-six winger. With Pascal Dupuis out with a torn anterior cruciate knee ligament, Hemsky is in play along with Mike Cammalleri of the Calgary Flames.

Could the Pens go after Cammalleri

The Pittsburgh Penguins need a third-liner with some bite, but with Pascal Dupuis out with a torn anterior cruciate knee ligament, they also need a top-six winger. The Calgary Flames’ Mike Cammalleri, an unrestricted free agent, fits that bill. He doesn’t check as well as Dupuis, but he has a better scoring touch.

Calgary Trade bait

Even though Burke acknowledged that Feaster and his scouting staff hit a “home run” with the selection of Monahan last June, Burke wants his next GM to be draft savvy so the presumable next top-five pick will be a key part of the Flames’ future.

“We have to get those picks right,” he said. “You have to hit home runs.

“Jay did that last year.”

FLAMES FIRE GM FEASTER, ASSISTANT GM WEISBROD

The Calgary Flames shook up their front office Thursday after a disappointing start to the season, firing general manager Jay Feaster and assistant general manager John Weisbrod.

The Flames have just 26 points this season, good for 13th place in the 14-team Western Conference.

Will the Rangers or Penguins make a push for Cammalleri

Calgary Flames winger Mike Cammalleri’s old agent is Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis, but I’d say the Pittsburgh Penguins or the New York Rangers will make the biggest push for him at the trade deadline, even if he’ll still have $1.25 million left on his $6 million contract. The Penguins need some offence outside of their top six.

Calgary Flames forward Mikael Backlund takes notice of trade rumours

For the record, Mikael Backlund wants to stay.

The Calgary Flames centre is suddenly the subject of trade speculation, with TSN’s Darren Dreger reporting Friday on Twitter that four or five teams have ‘kicked tires’ on Backlund and the Flames are ‘willing to move him.’

RUMOURS DU JOUR – From the Ottawa Sun

Three teams say there is a lot of chatter and most of it is coming from the Sunshine State. After sending Versteeg back to the Hawks, Florida GM Dale Tallon isn’t done. He’d like to move RW Scottie Upshall, LW Tomas Fleischman, RW Brad Boyes, RW Tomas Kopecky, C Marcel Goc and C Shawn Matthias before the deadline.
