Based on what's been said tonight by TSN's Darren Dreger and other reliable sources including Bob McKenzie on Twitter, looks like that trade between the powerless Flames and Rangers could be a go.
If you based this listless performance in which they can't even reach 20 shots about to be blanked 3-zip by the Flyers, Calgary definitely needs another shakeup. With the horn sounding and boos coming down at Pengrowth Saddledome, it's official. The first game for new Flames Ian White, Matt Stajan, Niklas Hagman and Jamal Mayers was epic fail. Shutout on your own home ice with just 10 shots the first two periods and only mustered eight more, making it a light night for world beater Ray Emery.
Olli Jokinen may have played his final game in Alberta, finishing with three shots and a minus-one in 15:08. Rumored 'mate Brandon Prust got 7:28. Will they finally be on the move here for Ally and Higgs? Bigger question is if it does happen, what exactly is Calgary's plan to acquire Ilya Kovalchuk? Like in Jeopardy, we should have a final answer soon.
