Francis: Flames devoid of a quality fourth defenceman

Understandably, a Dennis Wideman demotion doesn’t attract the same sort of front-page attention as Johnny Gaudreau’s.

It is, however, representative of one of the biggest problems the Calgary Flames have faced all season long.

This team is devoid of a quality no. 4 defenceman.

It’s part of the reason T.J. Brodie has struggled to regain the scoring touch and effectiveness he enjoyed last year while he was paired on the top line with Mark Giordano.
