Oilers, Flames make a deal
The Calgary Flames acquired defenseman Steve Staios from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for defenseman Aaron Johnson and the Flames' third-round pick in either 2010 or 2011.

Staios, a 14-year veteran, has spent the past eight seasons with the Oilers. In 879 career games, he has 52 goals and 147 assists. The 36-year-old had a goal and 5 assists in 24 games during the 2006 Stanley Cup Playoffs, when the Oilers lost the Final in seven games to the Carolina Hurricanes.

The 26-year-old Johnson is headed to his fifth NHL team in six seasons. Before the Flames, he played for the Columbus Blue Jackets, New York Islanders and Chicago Blackhawks. Johnson has 1 goal and 2 assists in 22 games for the Flames this season.
Quote of the Day

That group is not satisfied until we win a Stanley Cup. When we do win that Stanley Cup, I don't think we'll be satisfied then either. We're going to want another one. We have the group to do it. We have all the pieces. We just need to put them together.
