from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun, Lost in the shuffle that brought Mike Cammalleri back to Calgary is the fact Calgary may just have landed Miikka Kiprusoff’s replacement as part of the six-man deal.
And if indeed Karri Ramo is as good as advertised, how soon will the Flames look to make the move many fans in the Sea of Red have long dreaded: The trading of No. 34?
After all, his no-movement clause expires this July.
While Cammalleri was certainly the primary player in the six-player swap with Montreal Thursday, Flames GM Jay Feaster wasted no time letting people know his European scouts were convinced the star goaltender of the Kontinental Hockey League’s Avangard Omsk is “the best goalie in Europe.”...
At age 35, Kiprusoff is still a workhorse and one of the league’s money goaltenders – a man who has been, without question, the Flames’ MVP this season. He has two-and-a-half more years left on his contract with the fifth-highest cap hit in the league at $5.8 million.

DON'T LET THE DOOR HIT YA
The Canadiens pulled the winger -- who recently made some negative comments about the team -- during the 3rd period of Thursday night's game and it was later announced that he had been traded to Calgary.
BOSTON -- With its rabid fan base and media contingent, there's never a shortage of drama in the soap opera surrounding the Montreal Canadiens. The latest episode coincided with the Canadiens' arrival in Boston on Thursday, one day after Montreal forward Michael Cammalleri made waves with some inflammatory comments about his club bemoaning the "losing mentality"...
If you haven’t heard, the Canadians and Flames paired up for a trade. It was essentially Michael Cammalleri for Rene Bourque (there were draft picks & inconsequential players involved also). In the short term it looks like a win for Calgary. Camm-Camm should fit in nicely with the Flames, and as long as he’s healthy I think this trade will help him. Cammalleri was...
Another day, another headline for the Montreal Canadiens.
In a season marked by disappointment and curious moves, the NHL's most decorated franchise was the talk of the league again on Thursday night when news broke that Michael Cammalleri had been traded to Calgary for Rene Bourque.
The teams also swapped a prospect and a pick in the deal, which Canadiens GM Pierre Gauthier...
Welcome to the TD Garden for tonight's game between the Boston Bruins and visiting Montreal Canadiens.
Montreal forward Mike Cammalleri held no punches back earlier when he essentially called the Canadiens a group of losers. Perhaps lost in the language of how to properly call out/motivate your club, the biggest loser of all may in fact be Cammalleri himself. Chiming in with...
The Montreal Canadiens have traded forward Michael Cammalleri to the Calgary Flames for forward Rene Bourque. General manager Pierre Gauthier confirmed the deal after Thursday night's game against Boston. Cammalleri left the game after the second period. Two draft picks and two prospects were also involved in the trade.

Mike Richards had a goal and an assist for the Los Angeles Kings, who spoiled Mike Cammalleri's anticipated return to the Flames with a 4-1 victory over Calgary on Saturday night.
The victory, which snapped the Flames' eight-game, home-winning streak, gave Darryl Sutter bragging rights over brother Brent in their first meeting as NHL head coaches.

As the Chief already noted, our friends in Toronto are corroborating the massive Detroit press push suggesting that the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs will hold a Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and if you don’t believe Pension Plan Puppets’ news, the Globe and Mail’s David Shoalts (via RedWingsFeed) is also stating that the deal is done…...
FANTASY MINI TRADE IMPACTO:
So the 11 games last night did not make the biggest impact necessarily but a trade did. Michael Cammalleri was sent to the Calgary Flames along with Karri Ramo and a 5th round pick in 2012. Montreal's return was Rene Bourque, Patrick Holland, and a 2nd round pick in 2013. It...
In a season that has been defined by injury and turmoil – what would a match against the Bruins be without a little added injury and turmoil?
Brian Gionta has (most likely) been lost for the year as he has a torn bicep muscle that will require surgery. Gionta will finish his season having contributed just 15 points to the Canadiens in what should be considered by all as...
