"Supply and demand" is a pretty simple concept that teachers in secondary school economics classes tried to instil upon us.  It's one of the most important things we should actually take away from our schooling as opposed to when to recognize an isosceles triangle or where Canada's 6th Prime Minister was born (Sir Charles Tupper, in Amherst, Nova Scotia -- I mean, everyone knows THAT.).

With Brouwer out for weeks with a hand injury, now seems like a good time to evaluate the early returns on Brad Treliving's biggest offseason UFA signing. Will the Flames be worse in absence? Or is this injury a secret boon for the club?
