Tanguay to Stay

After weeks of speculation and even public acknowledgment of said speculation, the Flames have announced that they do not intend to trade the suddenly surging Alex Tanguay. The Flames need to free up some cap space to re-sign key free agents so most assumed that they would do that by sending Tanguay and his $5 million + salary out the door but it appears that is not the case which is smart on Darryl Sutter's part. Tanguay has a year left on his three year deal which includes a no-trade clause so any deal would have had to have 28 year old winger's stamp of approval. The question now is, will they trade Kristian Huselius, who's mired in a lengthy goal scoring slump, instead?
