Adrian Aucoin is apparently on his way to Calgary. No word on the compensation as of yet.

I don't mean to keep picking on the Flames (seriously, division rivals or not, I don't really have anything against them), but I don't like this move unless they're unloading a bad contract of their own on the Blackhawks. Aucoin is grossly overpaid at $4 million per season and he has two years left on his deal. He played like crap when he actually managed to be in the lineup for Chicago (he's missed 70 games over the past two seasons) and he turns 34 next month.

I'll wait until they announce both sides of the trade before I condemn it.
