The biggest thing come trade deadline is there will be more buyers than sellers. Right now almost every team in the West is in the running for the playoffs. In the East though, the top 7 spots are already decided probably with just a few teams left to battle for 8th.

So the Flames will have to look to teams like TB, NYI, Toronto and Atlanta to add depth or a top player.

I am torn whether we should go for it this year (trade for Jay Bouwmeester) or just add depth to maybe be an upset team like we were in 2004.

It's fairly obvious our top trade assets are Mikael Backlund and our 2009 1st rounder. But if Sutter doesn't want to give them up then the Flames will only add depth.

If that is the case then I think maybe Niclas Havelid and Colby Armstrong from Atlanta would be two good additions.
