Welcome to a new feature here on FlamesNation and all sites on the Nation Network: What Would You Do Wednesday, where we put you in charge of your own imaginary Calgary Flames. We'll present you with a different scenario each week, and you tell us how you'd solve it in the comments section below. Let's roll!

The Calgary Flames continued their epic six-game road trip tonight in the Music City, with a match-up at Bridgestone Arena against the Nashville Predators. After a hard-fought, fairly-even 60 minutes of hockey it all came down to the shootout, and the Flames left Tennessee with a 3-2 victory. Their record for the season has been evened-out at 2-2-0.
Here's how things went down tonight in Nashville.

After two days off to give thanks for the points they have already received - two, via the Oilers - the Flames are in the Music City of Nashville, Tennessee tonight to visit the Predators.
The Flames have had three games worth of good third periods, but haven't really played a full 60 minutes yet this year. That's bad, as playing a good 20 minutes will only apparently beat Edmonton - and that took Edmonton rolling over in the third. Granted, it's early, but the Flames really need a full 60, especially if they're going to bail out their goalies; Hiller and Ramo have been good-to-excellent thus far, but the club has just a single win to show for it. In the midst of a six-game road trip, the team will need a more complete effort to survive.
The puck drops at 6pm, and you can catch the action on Sportsnet 960 The Fan or on Sportsnet 360.

During this past week we took a trip down to LA to watch the Kings open up their 2014-15 season by raising the Stanley Cup, have a chat with our new cousins at The Royal Half and have a chat with Violent Gentlemen. This article is about their cool company and how they have helped me greatly with the Nation Network.
You have been forewarned in advance. Anyone looking for Corsi/Fenwick6 calculations should skip this piece.

Despite all the festiveness around the hockey world - jointly celebrating Thanksgiving Monday and Columbus Day - the American Hockey League has dropped the proverbial hammer on Adirondack Flames forward Trevor Gillies for his antics on October 10.
