There was some big news today; it was announced that the Calgary Flames have acquired and signed defenceman Dennis Wideman from Washington in exchange for Jordan Henry and a 5th round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft. This is an interesting move as Wideman is a  good offensive defenceman  but is making around 5 million a year on a 5 year contract which is a big cap hit. Wideman had a great start to his year but slowed down after the all-star break and all through out the playoffs, could that be because of Dale Hunter taking over as coach of Washington? We will find out next year in Calgary. What are your thoughts on this? Sure makes me wonder what Ryan Suter will receive; look out for more to come as July 1st approaches.
