Default CP Poll - how do you feel about today's moves

For the purpose of this I'm going to focus on the two big names.

I was not expecting these moves at all, but I have a hunch that Sutter has pulled another rabbit out. Very good value for both players, and if both can have a rebound year, he'll look like a genius.

Shocked. I understand bringing Tanguay back and imo it is a good rate for him. But I am completely baffled at the Jokinen signing.

I don't Sutter is done yet. I think the writing is on the wall for Langkow to be moved and I still think Regehr is going to have a new team to play for.

I would have preferred moving in a different direction.

Truthfully, I feel awful.

I think that Darryl Sutter has lost his mind.

This team needed to upgrade their top 3.

I'm still waiting for that upgrade to come.

cap friendly hit for the duo with a very good chance of them playing and contributing above their contract. Good postion to be in.

"You can't go home again". I am totally against bringing back old faces. This team needed an injection of new blood not the same old.

I don't dislike them, in fact I like the Tanguay move a lot. Jokinen is a head scratcher but for the price I'm not complaining. Jackman and Ivanans I'm not so keen on.

I guess I'm just kind of underwhelmed more than anything. Maybe it's my own fault for expecting too much but I don't think we made a significant enough improvement to our top 6.

With that said, it's still only July 1st and I don't see this being our opening roster. The center situation is just too weird for me to believe this is it.

I feel like crying and am even more embarassed to be a Flames fan. Just when I thought Sutter couldn't screw up even more, he managed to prove me wrong once again. These moves reak of desperation and instead of wondering if we are a playoff team team, I think we should be discussing if we are a lottery team

How do you do that though? Spezza maybe is the only guy I can think of that you could have maybe made a move for.

I don't disagree - but a lot of teams need to upgrade their top 3.

Jokinen I would prefer to move on from, but it's not terrible. Tanguay's deal, I really like. I went with option 2.

Why would you be embarassed?

I don't get that reaction.

I like them, but it doesn't really matter if I like them or not - it will matter in a few months on the ice. If Jokinen puts up a 25 goal year, and Tanguay gets 50 assists, then we will look back at Sutter as a genius.

I don't think anyone believes that these are moves that will help us win the cup - we are still missing an additional elite level forward.
