Flames' GM: Regehr deal still possible

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- I just caught up with Calgary General Manager Jay Feaster for an exclusive chat, and he said the trade of Robyn Regehr to Buffalo is still a possibility despite the defenseman's refusal to waive his no-movement clause.

"We’ll certainly continue to talk," Feaster said. "I think it’s one of those things where it’s a shock when the player is asked. It’s a case where he was hoping there was things he could consider as opposed to my going to him and saying, 'This is the deal I would have accepted.’

"Quite frankly, this is the best deal from our perspective. I think it just takes a little bit of time to think about those issues."

Like the Sabres, Calgary can wait for Regehr to change his mind.

"It’s not a deal that is draft driven or draft dependent," Feaster said.
