Flames' GM Treliving on Glencross trade: 'We're trying to navigate parallel paths'

If the Curtis Glencross trade on Sunday tells us anything of long-term import about the Calgary Flames organization, it tells us that they're keeping their surprising success in perspective. 

Little was expected of the rebuilding Flames this season. They were widely regarded as a team that was too limited up front to hang with the big three from California, or even the aging Vancouver Canucks, in the tough Pacific Division. Instead, with 20 games to play, the Flames are in the thick of the Western Conference playoff race.
