No choice but to re-sign him now. It's possible Burke tried to deal Cammalleri and couldn't get a return, considering the Islanders only got a 2nd and a prospect for Thomas Vanek. A moment of silence for Garth Snow, who probably won't have a job for much longer.
UPDATE: The Lee Stempniak to Pittsburgh rumours, previously dismissed, seem to be heating up again:
The Stempniak to Pittsburgh trade awaits a trade call still. Obviously the league is backed up on these things.— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) March 5, 2014
UPDATED UPDATE: Lee Stempniak has been dealt to the Pittsburgh Penguins for a third round pick, per Darren Dreger. The Pens will be Stemps' fifth NHL team after the Blues, Leafs, Coyotes and Flames. I have a feeling he's going to look pretty awesome on a good team, although it has to be a bit crappy to be traded immediately after your wife gives birth to twins. Best of luck to the Stempniak family.
It's a bit crazy that Reto Berra netted a higher return than Stempniak, though. I guess the Flames front office managed to sell him really well.
