Though the early hours of this year’s trade deadline weren’t very eventful, the last two hours surely made up for the tediousness. Here are what teams I think came out as winners and which ones came out as losers. (more…)
Prior to this week’s trade to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Jarome Iginla had been a member of the Calgary Flames since 1996, and the team’s captain since 2003. To say he was the face of the franchise would be to do a disservice to his impact on the Flames and the city of Calgary. To a certain extent, he WAS the franchise.

Two games in and the Flames are still looking for their first win. Both losses came at home against the Sharks and the Ducks. The Flames did allow 9 goals in the two games combined but they can take some positives from both the games as they prepare for their first road game against the Canucks in Vancouver (0-1-1) on Wednesday. With a new system in place under Bob Hartley, a few setbacks are expected, though this excuse becomes a non-factor due to the drastically shortened season. A small slump can potentially end playoff hopes even before the season finishes its second week.
