In a series of surprising moves, the Calgary Flames web site is reporting that Dustin Boyd has been sent down to the minors despite a strong camp. Furthermore, Rhett Warrener has not been sent down but remains with the team on the ‘injured list’ which implies another deal is in the works for the rugged defencemen.
Flames will be left scratching their heads as to why Boyd was sent to he minors (perhaps a size issue? perhaps a cost cutting measure?), and what Warrener’s options with the team are.
With the likes of Kyle Mclaren also going to waivers there are a few veteran D-men on the market which makes moving Warrener more difficult.
