NHL's NW division welcomes Cammalleri back to Calgary
The Montreal Canadiens traded forward Mike Cammalleri to the Calgary Flames in a deal centered around forward Rene Bourque.
Montreal also sent goaltender prospect Karri Ramo and a fifth-round pick in the 2012 draft to Calgary for forward Patrick Holland and a second-round pick in 2013.
Cammalleri has nine goals and 22 points in 38 games this year.
Bourque has 13 goals and three assists in 37 games with the Flames this season.
He is also presently serving a five-game suspension for elbowing.
This is such a strange trade.
For Calgary, they take on a huge contract to maybe eke out eighth and drop out in the first round when they're already (somehow) pressed against the cap. Huge risk.
For Montreal, they get a player who at least sounds French but isn't a lot better. He does make less though.
Pulling Camms during the game and sending him home was a weak move, screams of desperation. Gauthier, aside from the Halak trade, is driving that team right into the ground.
