With the NHL trade deadline come and gone, the Calgary Flames have a chance to bury a Western Conference opponent tonight on the road, when they take on the St. Louis Blues for the second straight time (6 pm, Sportsnet Flames and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960). The Flames eeked out a 1-0 win over this same (sort of) Blues team on Sunday night, and you can expect things to be similarly close this evening.

A couple updates on two players of interest on the Calgary Flames, one playing right now and one not. Acting GM Jay Feaster updated the contract situation on pending UFA Curtis Glencross on Monday afternoon while also shedding some positive light on the future of Daymond Langkow.

Kent's reviewed the Flames' two acquisitions here and here, and given the relatively minor nature of those moves, I'm not sure they rate any further scrutiny. With that in mind, here are a few brief thoughts about some of the other deals that happened earlier today.

As predicted, Feaster was pretty quiet today, scooping Brett Carson from the waiver wire and trading a 7th round pick for 36-year old Fredrik Modin. The former Lightning center/winger has just seven goals and 10 points in 36 games for the Thrashers this year and is six seasons removed from his last 30 goal season.

Calgary made a minor move today, claiming former Calgary Hitman Brett Carson off of waivers from the Carolina Hurricanes. Carson is mostly an NHL 'tweener, having played in just 72 NHL games over the last 4 seasons. The 25-year old is more "veteran" than Mikkelson, but hardly moves in the needle in terms of actual defensive depth for the Flames. He's a pending UFA, so no real commitment beyond this season.
This may be the only move Calgary makes today folks.
Edited by Robert - As I noted in comments, Carson is a RFA this summer.
