PHILADELPHIA - Being one of the new kids on the general managers block, Brad Treliving has been treated to a welcome wagon of sorts.

That is, if the Welcome Wagon consists of 29 brethren either getting a read on him, testing him or even trying to pull one over him.

“They’ve all been very welcoming and they have lots of ways to help me,” the Calgary Flames GM said with a sarcastic smirk. “They have so many suggestions and wake up every morning wondering how they can make Calgary better.

“I’ve had relationships and dealt with a lot of the guys before I got this job. They’ve been good. It’s been good.”

With all the NHL world gathered in Philadelphia for the draft, to be held Friday and Saturday, it’s the first chance for those around the league to truly gauge how Treliving does business when talking trades and the like.
