We're just shy of a month prior to the NHL's trade deadline - March 2nd at 1pm MT! But let's shift gears a bit and focus on the future a bit.
Oh, and the Calgary Flames organization's 23 impending free agents of various types, shapes and sizes.
Who do you keep? Who do you jettison? What Would You Do? (Wednesday)!

The Flames are off today, but there's definitely some scoreboard watching to be done this evening as the Western Conference's playoff picture continues to evolve.
Here's what's going down tonight.

It was a newsworthy morning down at the Scotiabank Saddledome yesterday, as for the first time this season, Sam Bennett skated with the Calgary Flames' main group.
Bennett has been sidelined with a shoulder injury that he had surgically repaired early in the fall, and he's been around the team recuperating, rehabbing and getting back into shape. Now he's skating with the team in a non-contact jersey, and one would expect things will progress through him being cleared for contact and then cleared entirely within a few weeks. At this point, I'd be shocked if he wasn't fully cleared by the third week of February.
So...what do you do with him if you're the Calgary Flames?

It was a playoff-like atmosphere at the Scotiabank Saddledome tonight, as the Western Conference's two wild-card teams clashed in an effort to cement their playoff hopes. After a spirited sixty minutes of ice hockey, the Calgary Flames skated to a 5-2 win over the visiting Winnipeg Jets.
With the victory, the Flames creep a bit closer to the Jets and maintain a game in hand against their conference rivals.
Here's how things went down tonight.

There are dates on the calendar that you circle in this line of work, because they have the potential to be something special. Games against Montreal, Edmonton and Vancouver are often circled. And with the recent return of Winnipeg to the National Hockey League, games against the Jets have been added to that list.
Suffice it to say, tonight's game between the Calgary Flames (27-20-3) and the Winnipeg Jets (26-17-8) could be something special.
