Trades are really hard to complete nowadays in the NHL so we aren't going to be making 6 or 7 trades at the deadline. So i think we should look at where the FLames can deal from their depth (and I don't necessarily mean by the deadline, offseason too) here's what I think:

Goalie - if Flames really think Raamo is an option for next year then deal Kipper. Re-sign MacDonald for a backup, let Irving walk, Taylor and Broissoit (also Ortio) in minors.

LW - Tanguay, Cammalleri, Baertschi, Glencross. Gotta move one of Tanguay or Cammalleri. Or Baertschi in a blockbuster for a #1 center.

Next year I would be fine with Raamo in net.

I would be fine with Bouw, Wideman and Brodie spearheading the top 4.

I like Glencross-Stajan-Stempniak as our 3rd line.

I like Hudler-Cervenka-Iginla as a scoring line.

Then Backlund, Baertschi, Tanguay, Cammy sorted out depending on the moves.

Final take is move Kipper, Gio and Cammy. That's a big enough undertaking for Feaster in light of the "new" NHL trade scene.
