Damn.

Commodore got this one right and called it 10 minutes ago, FWIW. Looks like #Insiderr has some connections.

Depends on the return, but Athanasiou can be a decent addition.

Boy I really don't know how well Torts and Athanasiou will mesh.

I saw that on the #Insiderrrrr and thought he'd be replacing a traded Anderson. I guess not. Or, maybe Anderson is more hurt than originally thought and this is a replacement for him.

Remember Duclair under Torts? AA is a very similar player

Tortorella is a very detailed oriented coach that preaches competing hard in all three zones and playing within the system. If you don't do that.. you are not playing at all. These are certain trait's that Athanasiou has struggled to bring consistently as a pro.

Which are also the reasons why he wouldn't be what the Flames need.
