I don't know why Dougie Hamilton's name has crept up again in trade talks, but if there's anything to be learned from the last time it did, these situations can evolve into something quickly. [See also: P.K. Subban this past June.]
There seems to be plenty of debate among insiders and Flames fans alike about just how much substance there is to Calgary's willingness to ship Hamilton out, but as an outsider looking at things from the perspective of another team, I don't want to get too much into that. The name is out there for a reason. If Brad Treviling is fielding calls on this guy, Lou Lamoriello should be hopping on the phone as soon as possible.

Last week, Columbus Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella sent hockey Twitter into another round of arguing about which statistics are and aren't meaningful when he denounced both corsi and fenwick.
