Cammalleri gives Calgary seven-team no-trade list

With a deadline deal all but certain, Mike Cammalleri has given Calgary a list of seven teams he won’t accept a move to, according to the Calgary Sun.

Cammalleri, 31, is in the final of a five-year, $30 million deal that includes a limited NTC (hence the seven-team list). There are expected to be suitors for his services leading up to Wednesday’s deadline, as the former King and Canadien has scored 20 goals five times during his 11-year career, and sits tied for second on the Flames with 14 this season.

As for what interim Calgary GM Brian Burke is hoping to get out of the deal? Here’s more, from the Sun:

If Burke can wrangle up a first-round draft pick for a rental the exercise will have been considered an unmitigated success.

A second-rounder would also suffice, assuming it would come with a young prospect of some sort.

A third-rounder in return would be considered a fail unless the deal also includes a decent prospect.

Cammalleri is widely considered consolation prize No. 3 for teams looking to add a scoring winger. Tomas Vanek and Matt Moulson are Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, so it’s possible Burke may need to wait for those chips to fall before pulling a deal.

    No sure how many teams would be willing to pick-up Cammalleri.

    Why do I have the feeling that he may become a “Doug Gilmour” situation…one shift then hurt with the new team???

    For the past few years he’s been getting hurt a lot, in and out of the line-up.

    He’s a hard nosed player, with speed and a big heart. But that can also lead to being injured a lot.

      Case in point: Ryan Callahan.

        Exactly….too much risk for Callahan as well.

        If either plays 100% they are some of the most effective players on the ice (maybe not on the stat sheets, but as all around hockey players)

    Ever since he dislocated his shoulder with the Canadiens the year they played in the heritage classic he hasn’t been the same.

      He wasn’t on the team when they played in the Heritage Classic….

    Seven team no trade list, seven Canadian teams, coincidence? Just kidding, lol. But I’d bet Ottawa, Edmonton, and Winnipeg are on a lot of these lists.

    7 Team wish list for Cammy but I bet the suitor’s list is a lot shorter.
