FLAMES GET TESTWUIDE FOR WAHL
The Calgary Flames acquired winger Mike Testwuide from the Philadelphia Flyers for center Mitch Wahl.
What does it give the Calgary Flames
Testwuide is a proven AHL scorer who should provide depth to the Flames, though he's already past the age when he will become a factor at the NHL level.
What does it give the Philadelphia Flyers
Wahl needed a change of scenery, so perhaps he'll do better within the Philadelphia organization. He's further away from a call-up to the NHL than Testwuide.
Neither Testwuide nor Wahl should have much in the way of NHL fantasy value, so this should be mainly an AHL trade. These two are fringe NHLers.
