FGD #63: Welcome to Wherever You Are (5pm MT, SN West)

The Brier road trip has not been nice to the Calgary Flames. So far, they've lost two games and their captain. Their seven-game trek continues tonight in Philadelphia when they visit the Flyers.

The Flames weren't very good against the Rangers, but they were better against a bad Devils team and a pretty good Islanders team. Hopefully that upward trend continues, because there are points on the table here against a Flyers team that has struggled with inconsistency this season. Giordano or no Giordano, they still have a (small) chance of making the playoffs.

Puck drop is at 5pm MT and the game's on Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

The 2015 NHL trade deadline will probably be best remembered as the day where the Calgary Flames announced Mark Giordano's season had ended.

That's probably warranted, given that's the single largest news item of the day, but it does overshadow the work done by Brad Treliving and his staff this past week. They had two players that didn't have a future in the organization and turned them into three draft picks in the first three rounds of a deep draft.

Here's a glance at how everything turned out and where we go from here.
