Rumors Out Of Calgary

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

Here come the rumours, blog bull and innuendo that so sadly surround the wayward, the struggling and the conflicted.

Seven games into the NHL season and the Calgary Flames are all of the above, prompting the rumour mill to pump out pulp fiction.

The latest laughable link to the Flames suggests perhaps Daniel Alfredsson would be the object of the team’s desires at some point down the road.

At a time when the Flames are finally ready to stop the aging process and start a retooling of sorts, acquiring ol’ Alfie and his deteriorating 38-year-old frame makes about as much sense as Matt Stajan’s contract.

One thing that is very real is the Flames interest in holdout centre Kyle Turris. A source close to the situation confirms the Flames are one of six teams that have made “significant” offers for the Phoenix Coyotes forward. Feaster refuses to comment, but it makes sense as the acquisition of the disgruntled Turris would address two of Calgary’s biggest needs: A centreman and youth.

I’m no Flames fan, but if Feaster managed to move Jokinin or Bowemeester in order to get Turris, he’s got the GM of the year award locked up. wink

Soooooo… paging Brian Burke….
