Could Tanguay Be The Offensive Answer In Calgary?

from Scott Cruickshank of Flames Insider,

First off, let’s make a couple of assumptions.

One — that Flames general manager Darryl Sutter, still so in love with his core, won’t rock a blockbuster in the coming weeks. So no Vinny Lecavalier. No Nathan Horton. No Jeff Carter. No Eric Staal.

Two — that Alex Tanguay would return to a team that he, well, couldn’t wait to leave.

OK now, here’s the thing: the Flames are dying for a top-six forward.

Without playing big-ball—and wheeling away one of the cornerstone heroes — Sutter’s options are limited. Tanguay may be one. This is a fellow playing for a reasonable contract (one year worth $2.5 million US — more than half done, of course) with a healthy dash of skill.
