Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
When the Flames acquired Cammalleri from the Los Angeles Kings, they understood there was a chance they might only keep him for one year, at which point he could leave as an unrestricted free agent (and with the dollars tied up in Kiprusoff, Iginla and Dion Phaneuf, there may not be a lot left over for Cammalleri).
It doesn’t mean they’ll trade him either.
The reality is this: If you’re a good team, and this year, Calgary is a good team, you don’t trade an important puzzle piece just because your chances of re-signing him next year may be negligible.
