I believe Cammelari will stay with the Flames if he believes he has got a chance to play with the NHL's best leader and power forward, Iginla. I would believe they will sign him for a cut back to what GMs like Kevin Lowe would offer him.

Also look at Nemisz and Backlund to make their team. Nemisz is a great player and maybe will be the most NHL ready rookie. Backlund might not be able to step in a big role yet but look for him to be a 90 guy in the future.

They will puck up a Defenseman like Hamhuis in the Summer to strengthen the back end.

Leland Irving will be their back up

They wont need much in the off season and will have a skilled team.

i hope cammy will be back but realistically i think it would be tough
as for bringing in hamhuis i think taht would be greaqt but he is not FA and they alreaddy are a little lacking on trade assets

I believe they can get alot out of Langkow or their prospects.

I have spoken with Mike and he likes where hes at.
Flames fans can just hope he stays for cheap.

I don't understand why you say some players will be traded. Have there been any trade rumours?

Also, Backlund will not be a 4th line player. But you can bet he will be there in my opinion. I believe earlier in the year that flames wanted Backlund to play, but they said he would play on the 4th, so assuming that stays true, then backlund would likely see more minutes.

I can see Grantham to have a chance to come too. He is having a pretty good WHL playoff and could be a comparison to Roy.

no rumours jsut speculation from radio caster and myself, you must remeber that on the flames no line is seet, nystrom was a fourth line player for them and played 2 playoff games in which he reached 15+plus minutes as well as dustin boyd who was a force and played lots even though he was fourth lining

Iginla for 2010 team captain.
Flames for cup...eventually.
