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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
