Oh Crap! Say it ain’t so, Joe! (or Darryl, or Brent, or even Brett!)
There is a rumour floating around that the Flames are trying to re-sign Alex Tanguay, who spent 2 so-so years with the Flames in 06-07 and 07-08 . I am not a Tanguay lover by any stretch of the imagination and I was happy when he was traded to Montreal for a 1st round draft pick (Greg Nemisz) in summer 2008.
Tanguay played 50 games with the Habs last season and tallied 41 points.
Personally I don’t believe this rumour. No offense to the writer at Bleacher Report, but I don’t trust that there is any substance to this rumour. He previously predicted that tanguay would sign with either Florida, Phoenix, NY Rangers, Colorado, or LA Kings… and now all of a sudden Tanguay is supposed to be a “done deal” to sign with the Flames again?!!
If this rumour is true, the Flames would have to trade someone – though Tanguay will come much cheaper this time- and the most likely person on the “who do we trade” list is Phaneuf. I can’t see D.Sutter trading him away before the start of the season.
