the current deal is a terrible one for the city of Abbotsford because it's a bad bet; the city assumes all of the future risk while the team accrues a huge chunk of the benefits. If the Heat fail to attract fans and garner revenues, the city (meaning, the tax payers of Abbotsford, both hockey fans and non-hockey fans alike) are stuck with the bill.

I get political in my look at the the Flames taking advantage of pubic funds in Abbotsford.

The Staios deal is a mess. Whatever "intangibles" he adds to the roster are likely to fall well short of his relatively expensive contract. Unless he regains the sort of on-ice form he showed years ago, Staios is a bad bet to provide value for his contract and is a toxic asset - one which was happily expunged by the rather hapless organization up north. It's a move that smacks of a man either lost in the past or completely out of ideas.

My look at the Steve Staois acquisition.

Wahl picked up eight points, scoring two goals and six assists to go with a +4 rating, in four games over the past week, helping the Chiefs post a 4-0 record in that span.

Mitch Wahl has been on fire in the latter half of the season. He's currently 6th in WHL scoring. Look for him in my Flames Top 20 Prospects article for Hockey's Future, to be published this week.

Cgy-NYR trade call is happening now. Deal is exactly as @DarrenDreger reported it last night - Jokinen/Prust for Higgins/Kotalik.

McKenzie says the trade is going down. If this isn't a precursor to another deal, then I'll lead the "fire Sutter" parade.

Sources tell TSN that while the Rangers thought they had the deal basically agreed to on Sunday night, the Flames weren't ready to pull the trigger, in part, because they felt they needed Jokinen in the lineup tonight against Philadelphia in Calgary.

Bob McKenzie reports that Jokinen will be a Flame for at least one more game.

Via Darren Dreger Quite the interesting day in Flamesland.
