    No thank-you! I'd hate to see Bennett laying out big hits on the Flames and finding his game under a new coaching staff. The kids young. I want to see what he's like under Peters/Ward before shipping him off. (especially to a rival)

    Absolutely not for Calgary.

    I can't see a single reason to make such a proposal as a Flames fan.

    Stetcher is not needed at all, Gagner is a capdump and would remain in the AHL, and Markstrom is the very definition of an average starting goaltender and certainly not an upgrade on Smith.

    Markstrom would be the backup. He's also eight years younger than Smith.

    Bennett for Markstrom?

    Gross
     
  8. sure, why not. I don't think Bennett is particularly good but he has potential I guess and we are gonna suck for a while anyways.

    I wouldn’t want to trade another promising player to Vancouver like we did Baertschi. If Bennett is still sucking by the deadline I’d maybe consider his if Stetcher wasn’t part of the deal.

    Not if you paid me that 50% retention on Gagner's salary. This is absolutely awful.

    Exactly, Markstrom would be the backup. Why are we trading Bennett for a 29 year old who has proven he is nothing more than a mediocre starting goaltender and certainly not the solution to our goaltending problems for the future?

    Sad thing is Bennett isn't > gagner.
    Bennett has not even hit 40 points yet
    Gagner was a consistent 40 point player. Even during the lockout shortened year. Bennett had a 4 goal game ?
    Gagner had a 8 point night. 4 goals 4 assists.
    Gagner played with better players?
    Bennett plays with better dmen and has had chances with Monahan and Gaudreau.
    Bennett is not better than Gagner in any way.

    oh really? age? contracts? who will be playing for 10 years and 40 points isnt even hard to reach, Gagner is old and slow, he wouldn't crack the Flames top 14, i'd play Brouwer before Gagner

    I’d rather keep Stetcher. I want Bennett though, how about 3rd+Hutton

    Also this trade is repugnant.
    If Calgary moves Bennett it's not for a lateral goalie move.

    Wow this is dumb

    Flames give up the only decent piece and get nothing more than a marginal backup.

    If 40 points isn't so hard to reach, why did Gagner do it in his first season and consistantly do it while Bennett has failed to reach 40 points in any of his seasons?

    Gagner not an NHL player, so no he's not better at this time.

    Markstrom's better than that. But yeah, not seeing any real upside for the Flames in this deal.

    We don't need another defenseman, and I'd rather keep Bennett then give him away for something that's not needed and a mid draft pick.

    If Bennett turns into a good physical nasty third liner that can chip in, so be it.

    Its not like he's making 6 million bucks a year so there's no real need to move him yet.
