Last week, it was Steven Stamkos for a package deal that, supposedly, included Sam Bennett.

This week, it’s Dennis Wideman and Kris Russell.

But when you’re a team that’s started the 2015-16 National Hockey League season as badly as the Calgary Flames have, trade rumours start to fly and speculation of shake-up moves begin.

Flames willing to deal, but is anyone else?

As Calgary continues to struggle, GM Brad Treliving holds some sway over the defensive market. There are blueliners available, but few that are overly appetizing. Dennis Wideman’s played very well for them, one of the few who’s been above water during this ugly start.

LeBrun: “No Evidence” on Stamkos-Flames Trade Link

On the possibility of a blockbuster trade between the Flames and Lightning involving Steven Stamkos:

“Well, listen. Certainly Treliving, I think, has been on the phone to a lot of teams, from what I can gather. But I have no evidence to suggest that Brad Treliving and Steve Yzerman have spoken, sadly. I know we wish that was true.

D men who could be on the move

Blues GM Doug Armstrong would prefer to move Carl Gunnarsson, a No. 4-5 defenceman and pending UFA, but that would only bring back a Cam Atkinson-type player, should he deal with the Jackets. If St. Louis wants a Top 6 forward in return, they may dangle Shattenkirk, who has one year left on his deal beyond 2015-16.

Flames Won’t Pay Current Asking Price for Rychel

“I think Calgary is looking for a little help on the wings and is maybe willing to get a little bigger there. Columbus would like to trade Kerby Rychel, but they’re asking a lot – as they should. From what I understand, it’s a price that Calgary is not willing to pay at this particular point in time.

Red hot market for blueliners

The two teams that have the most phones ringing right now in the National Hockey League are St. Louis and Calgary. The reason? Both have solid, Top four defencemen they might be willing to trade for the right forward.
