One big piece of the Calgary Flames puzzle was removed.

It’s hard to imagine Jarome Iginla will be the only player dealt away before the April 3 NHL trade deadline.

Between now and Wednesday’s 1 p.m. deadline, expect to hear all kinds of rumours surrounding the Flames. (Take almost all of them with a grain of salt, too.)

That said, brace yourself to see more players join Iginla in packing their bags for other locales.

With that in mind, here is a look at a half-dozen Flames players who could be in the sights of other clubs as the trade deadline looms.





LW Curtis Glencross

Contract status: Through 2014-15. $2.5-million salary; $2.55-million cap hit

Who’d be interested and why: Just like Giordano, all kinds of teams would love to add Glencross. He has a very cap-friendly contract, with two more seasons on it, can pot you 25 goals in a second-line role, kills penalties, has a snarky side to him and is a great skater. The Boston Bruins would love him, as would the Ottawa Senators. The list could go on and on.

Why teams may not be interested: The asking price could be more than teams would want to pay unless they believe Glencross will put them over the top. He has proven enough to be a top-six player, so going to a team in a third-line role, unless it means winning it all, wouldn’t likely be a priority for a player who dearly wanted and received a no-movement clause in exchange for a reasonable salary to stay in Calgary.

Why the Flames may want to trade him: Even though he would take a big part out of the team, Glencross is 30-year-old. His deal may be done by the time things turn around in Calgary.
