Throughout each NHL franchise’s history you can find trades that the team made that make you shake your head. In good way and in a bad way. There have been major steals and monumental robberies on the NHL trade market. Today we count down the top five best and worst trades in Calgary Flames history
5. Joe Mullen for a 2nd Round Pick (Nicolas Perreault)
At the 1990 NHL Entry draft the Flames dealt Joe Mullen to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for the Penguins’ 2nd Round Pick in that draft. Mullen had been coming off a “disappointing” 69 point campaign with the Flames and that combined with Mullen being 33 years of age, Calgary decided to deal the aging scorer in hopes of maximizing their return. The deal proved to be disapointing as Mullen would go on to win two Stanley Cups and score 325 points in 379 games as a Penguin. Nicolas Perreault who was selected with the pick would never make the NHL.

BEST OF MAXIM

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
The Flames are now officially at the midpoint of their schedule and are six points out of 8th and in 15th place in the conference. They are cooked. Now all eyes will be on the Flames and the approaching April 3 trade deadline. At some point, GM Jay Feaster will have to deal with the Jarome Iginla situation as the captain approaches the end of his...
There are reports today that the Flames won't be able to get a whole lot for Jarome Iginla, however talking to my sources I really tend to respectfully disagree...I have always said the amount of respect Iggy gets in the east baffles me. Were he on an Eastern Canadian team or the Bruins, Flyers or Rangers he would be considered one of the top 5 most exciting players in the game...

Tonight the Calgary Flames will try to avoid being swept in their three games against the L.A. Kings this season.
After their loss to the Kings Saturday night, Hartley made no bones about the Flames situation, saying ââ¦we have to win. Thatâs the urgency that weâre facing nowâ. He is right, losing tonight would mean...
Look out! Advertisements are taking over hockey games!
Those 3D advertisements you see digitally placed along the glass or a relatively new invention in the NHL. In fact, numerous broadcasts still aren't using them, for one reason or another. As it turns out, the broadcasters that are using them might not be too sure how to use them.

from Eric Duhatschek of the Glob and Mail,
...the stats line on Kiprusoff is so uncharacteristically grim – just a 3.43 goals-against average, an .857 save percentage and only three wins in 10 decisions. Kiprusoff’s save percentage leaves him ranked 72nd of the 79 goalies which have played a game in the league this year and is far off his historical standards. Kiprusoff...

The Calgary Flames lost again in L.A. last night against the defending Stanley Cup champs. Though the loss wasnât as bad as Saturday night itâs in no way a positive, and coming home after a 0-3 road trip, itâs time to make some drastic changes in Calgary.
The bottom line is Calgary hasnât played a full three periods of...
from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
The Flames, meanwhile, have now fallen to 15th place in the Western Conference standings, behind both the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Edmonton Oilers. If the objective is to bottom out this season, then the events of the past three games will go a long way to meeting that goal.
“Definitely, we took a step in the wrong direction...
