The Calgary Flames are riding something crazy right now, and they've moved into an absolute logjam tied for fourth in the Western Conference. The team won again on Wednesday night, this time riding some nice bounces from lady luck to take a 4-2 win over the Dallas Stars. The Flames sure weren't great, but it's two more points, and they'll take it and move outdoors for their next game on Sunday night.

Hey remember when Dallas was good!?

The Calgary Flames bounced right back to the winning side of things Monday night with a silly looking 9-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche. As they look to continue climbing up the standings, they play game #60 tonight against the Dallas Stars (7:30 pm, TSN and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960). A team that once held a comfortable lead on top of the Pacific Division, the Stars have come right back down to Earth in 2011.

One trade that caught my eye over the last week was the move of Kris Versteeg to the Flyers for two draft picks. I suspect that most people, seeing a Leaf team in the dumper, think that getting a first and third rounder for a second/third line type like Versteeg was a good return. Was it really, though? Pension Plan Puppets has a good look at players drafted in the first round from 1997-2004 here, but I wanted to also look at players of a more recent vintage, as well as having a look at the potential for a payoff from the third rounder.
