Dennis Wideman is open to waiving his no-movement clause if the Flames want to trade him.

"If that’s something that (the Flames) want to do, then they can call and I definitely would be open to it," Wideman said. "I think, as a player, you don’t want to be anywhere that you’re not wanted. So if they want to move you and someone wants to take you, then it’s nice to go somewhere like that if that’s the case. And if I don’t hear anything, then I guess I’m here." Wideman is in the final season of his contract and it doesn't seem like he fits into the Flames' plans in the long-term and maybe not even in the short-term anymore. After all, the Flames made him a healthy scratch on Tuesday after acquiring Michael Stone from Arizona. With three goals and 16 points in 52 contests, this is far from one of Wideman's better seasons, but a team might still be interested in him as a rental for the sake of having some extra defensive depth and on the off-chance that a change of scenery will spark him.

Dennis Wideman will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Nashville Predators.

Michael Stone, who was acquired from Arizona on Monday, will take Wideman's spot in the lineup. It's not an ideal situation for Calgary, as they're sitting a guy with a $5.25 million cap hit. Don't be surprised if they end up trading him before the March 1st trade deadline. Wideman has three goals and 13 assists in 52 games this season. The pending unrestricted free agent averages over 20 minutes of ice time per game. Jyrki Jokipakka and Freddie Hamilton will also watch the game from the press box.

Dennis Wideman played in his 800th career NHL game Saturday.

Wideman was selected in the eighth round in 2002 by the Sabres. The defenseman had 56 points two seasons ago but that seems like a long time ago in fantasy hockey as he has three goals and 15 points in 42 games. He chipped in with an assist Saturday and is on a three game points streak but his fantasy value is not high at this time.

Dennis Wideman, Nicklas Grossmann and Freddie Hamilton will each be scratched from Thursday's match with San Jose.

Wideman has posted two goals and four points with eight hits and nine blocks through eight games this season. We'd stick it out with him if you're in a deep league. Whereas Grossmann and Hamilton have seen just a pair of games each, and do not appear to factor strongly into Calgary's plans.

Dennis Wideman found the back of the net in Calgary's 4-1 win against St. Louis.

Wideman has two goals and four points in five contests this season. It's still early, but there's certainly the potential for him to bounce back after being limited to 19 points in 2015-16.

Dennis Wideman is expected to be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

It's the second game in a row that he'll be scratched. That's a lot of money to have sitting out, as Wideman makes $5.25 million this season. He's managed to score one goal in two games this season. Nicklas Grossmann and Freddie Hamilton will also watch from the press box.

Dennis Wideman will be scratched from Saturday's match with the Canucks.

The veteran defender has a power play tally, six shots and a minor penalty through the first two games of the season as he's skated a touch under 20 minutes per. Wideman missed nearly half of last season due to injury so this likely just a way to pace the 33-year-old, and get youngster Brett Kulak in against a weak opponent.

Dennis Wideman brought the Calgary Flames to within two goals at the 11:29 minute mark of the third, but it was not enough in their 7-4 loss to the Edmonton Oilers Wednesday night.

With stints with the Blues, Bruins, Panthers, Capitals, and now Flames Wideman has made the rounds. In his career, he has 95 goals in 759 games, but 275 assists have contributed greatly to his 370 career points. Mikael Backlund provided an assist in the Wideman goal, which was his second assist of the evening.
