It wasn't the best display of how to protect a one goal lead put on by the Calgary Flames on Friday night, and in the end, the home side was unable to hold on, falling 4-3 in a shootout to the San Jose Sharks. Calgary was able to earn the single point, but with slight edge heading into the final frame, they didn't do nearly enough to keep the high powered Sharks at bay, with a Ryane Clowe goal late in the game sending things to extra time.

Coming off a 3-1 loss to the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night, the Calgary Flames are right back at home on Friday as they take on one of the Western Conference's hottest teams in the San Jose Sharks (7 pm, Sportsnet Flames and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960). San Jose's last month and a half has been extremely impressive, and it's gotten them back to where we all thought they should be...on top of the Pacific Division.

Every year during the month leading up to the NHL trade deadline there are heated debates in chat rooms, on blogs, at coffee rooms, around water coolers and here on the Nation about what is a fair or good return in a trade. It is much easier to debate when actual players are moved, but when people start tossing around draft picks the air becomes much more grey.
What is the true value of a draft pick? Is a 2nd rounder fair return on a eight-year veteran 3rd pairing D-man? Many of us seem to think it is, but is it really?
