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.

Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving had an injury update for reporters in Philadelphia this afternoon, and it was not good.
Flames captain - and the team's best player - Mark Giordano is to undergo surgery for a torn biceps tendon and will likely be done for the season. Treliving shared the news at his media scrum following the trade deadline, noting that the surgery typically has a 4 to 5 month recovery period.

A couple quick notes here as the deadline creeps slowly towards us on a slow, slow morning for Calgary Flames news. We got the scoop on a prank, as well as Tyler Wotherspoon perhaps making a move back to the bigs.

If you're like me, the NHL's trade deadline is an exciting time. it's a time to think about possibilities, and the future. But it can also be a time to think about the past.
Me? I wondered when the last time the Flames made a trade with each of the other 29 NHL clubs. Here's what I found out after digging around at Pro Sports Transactions:
