The last trade the Flames made with every NHL team

The National Hockey League trade deadline is rapidly approaching. As the Calgary Flames prepare for the chaos that always comes on March 1, we felt it was prudent to revisit an old resource and update it.

Curious as to how long it’s been since the Flames made a swap with the other 29 NHL clubs? We dug into it and have a handy tracker for you.

The Rundown

Treliving’s credo over the past three seasons seems to be “If we don’t have plans for somebody, let’s get something back for them.” As a result, the Flames managed to flip a lot of assets from the Jay Feaster regime for draft picks and then either use those picks outright (taking Rasmus Andersson and Matthew Phillips, among others), use them to move up (they traded up to draft Oliver Kylington) or use them to solve other problems (acquiring Dougie Hamilton and Brian Elliott).

    I’d really like to see the Flames perhaps target Patrick Sharp. I know “how would he fit under the cap?!”. Would require BT to get crafty, but I think he would be a good add- Price depending. At least bid LAK up if they are targeting him 🙂

  • The GREAT WW

    Engelland and Stajan (edit: I was actually thinking Bouma but couldn’t think of his name…) to Minnesota for their cup run.

    Jordan Greenway to the Flames for our cup run in a few years….


  • The Doctor

    I like those trades where we got Tyler Parsons, Dillon Dube and Matt Phillips in return. All very good prospects, although Phillips does have that size issue. I thought Dube looked very good at the World Juniors, even though he didn’t score a ton. Parsons is obviously a tantalizing goalie prospect right now.

    I really like what we got in return for Russell and David Jones, thumbs-up to BT on those two, even if those prospects don’t eventually pan out.

  • dustin642

    Didn’t we get PL3 from New Jersey for like a 2012 5th round pick??
    I mean, I don’t really want to remember it either.
    The internet tells me that the Devils used said pick to draft Graham Black 135th overall

  • The GREAT WW

    Oiler fans seem to think that the Oilers are way better this year than years before….

    I only see the Oilers beating the Flames as the difference this year; if the Flames win all their games against the Oilers like they use to the Oilers are still where they use to be.

    So congratulations on beating the Flames 4 times; but your team is still terrible….


    • Eggs Bennett

      Not to mention they beat CGY amidst crappy defense, goaltending, and PDO streaks. Way to go NHL for distributing the schedule for the BOA this year…

    • TurkeyLips

      And to think the mighty McDavid was injured for more than half of last season…

      A McDavid injury going forward will leave them terribly exposed, just as it always will. Even more now without Hall.

  • The Doctor

    BTW if I were a Canucks fan — and I’m not — I would be very happy with what they got for Burrows. Dahlen is a very exciting prospect. I guess someone smart would have to explain to me why the Senators think they need to acquire Burrows (especially in return for giving up a prospect like that). IMO he’s a spent rocket now.

  • The Sultan

    Lol LA just blew it in overtime. Granlund pretty much danced around their whole team and turned Quick inside out. Hoping Bishop starts tomorrow so we can school him as well. Am I the only one who thinks LA went out and got 2 #1 goalies specifically so they can beat us?

  • Pond Hockey

    Instead of grumbling you should all go to ON and check out some of the comments recently. Makes for quite an enjoyable read actually. No need to troll, just sit back and enjoy.

  • Pond Hockey

    There will be some diamonds to be found in this years draft. Unless you’re a legitimate contender I doesn’t pay to gamble away picks. The prospect shelves have to stay stocked in a salary capped environment.

  • freethe flames

    Caps now look like the team to beat. While I am all for BT making a move I sure hope he does not get into a bidding war for a rental and need to use our 1st or 2nd. We are not yet at an all in stage. If he uses the picks it has to be for someone who is an upgrade over Brouwer and has term.

    • dontcryWOLF88

      Speaking personally, Tre has bought more faith than that. I dont think he will do anything stupid asset wise. ‘

      Shattenkirk is the best deal so far this draft, however, i dont know wshingtons cap/ player contract situation well enoguh to know if they can even sign him. I bet not. If true, thats a pure rental, and only a good deal for 20+ games, then a bad deal if no cup.. I can easily imagine the capitals finding yet another way to lose in the 1st or 2nd round.

      Past that, and based on what ive seen from Stone, I think Tre’s deal is a sneaky second for best value deal so far this trade deadline. ehhh, maybe tied with Eaves to Aneheim. I dunno.

    • dontcryWOLF88

      Interesting idea..I think I might take that if it was possible. Tatar is a great two way player and puts up decent points.

      HIs contract is $2.7m, to Boumas $2.2. That works. Though, Tatars deal ends after this year.

      I could see detroit taking this deal though and having it work out for both sides.
