I just have this sinking feeling that the Flames management is desperate and will make a move to patch things in the short term.
That kind of panic trade means one of Brodie, Baertschi or Backlund and this years first round pick. Maybe more on top of that. Best case in a desperation move scenario would be Giordano and a 1st.

Best thing for the Flames in that regard would be to go on a bit of a losing streak and thus, erase any hint of belief in managements eyes that this season is salvageable. Of course, that could just spur them on to make a move faster.
