Elliotte Friedman was on Calgary’s Sportsnet 960 on Monday morning.
Following a lengthy discussion on the Calgary Flames, and how everything he described about what they want, following the playoff loss to Anaheim, screams Milan Lucic:
“Yeah, you know – I think he’s a guy like that.
“I’m going to throw another name at you and I know this is going to start a lot of stuff. I’m going to say I don’t think necessarily he’s the guy, but I’m saying he’s the type of guy. Depending on what St. Louis decides to do with David Backes, I could see that being the type of player that Calgary might have some interest in. I’m not saying that they’re going to go out and get David Backes, but he’s the type of player they’re looking at.”
Following several minutes worth of discussion on the St. Louis Blues and Backes, Friedman ends with this note:
“One of those St. Louis veterans at least is going to be going. It’s just a matter of who, where and what the offer is.”

Friedman: "I heard yesterday that Calgary will not be doing a Kessel deal. It would be a big surprise if they did it." #Flames #Leafs
