As per Bob McKenzie, a trio of players with NHL experience are on the waiver wire today. Are any of them particularly interesting?

If I'm being honest with myself, I don't really see the Calgary Flames falling out of the playoff hunt between now and the NHL's trade deadline at the end of the month. Even with upcoming games against the likes of the Sharks and Canucks, I still see Calgary remaining within striking distance of eighth in the Western Conference. That said, they start a three game road trip tonight in Anaheim that could prove to be very important (8 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet 960).

Calgary lost two of three since our last update, dropping their chances of making the post-season to the 20%-23% range. Brendan Morrison is gone, making room for Krys Kolanos, who played his first NHL game in three years.

We didn't get to see much of Sven Baertschi at the WJC since he got injured very early on. He missed a few games for Portland thanks to lingering concussion symptoms after the tournament, but has since returned to duty. Things haven't gone quite as swimmingly for the 19-year old winger upon his return however.

While the Chicago Blackhawks ran things at times in the first period on Friday night, the Calgary Flames were able to limit the damage fairly effectively and finished the opening frame even at a goal a piece. That allowed them to use a strong final 40 minutes, which helped them to a solid 3-1 win over the suddenly struggling Chicago Blackhawks. It snapped a three game home losing streak for the Flames and got them back within three points of a playoff spot.
