This deal is one that should open up the pocket books a little for the Calgary Flames, as they have moved Jim Vandermeer to the Coyotes and in return they re-acquire Brandon Prust, who they dealt to Phoenix at the deadline in the Olli Jokinen deal. As you can see above, the deal is a pretty large savings, especially since Prust is a two-way player and his cap hit won't actually affect the team if he's playing in the minors. Opening up that sort of space means big things for the Flames and signing Jay Bouwmeester, who they acquired in the early part of Saturday.

The Flames now stand with 15 players signed onto their roster for a cap cost of $45.4 million.
