The Calgary Flames began their house cleaning on Thursday, placing defenceman Rhett Warrener and Anders Eriksson and forward Marcus Nilson on waivers.

Nilson, a nine-year veteran, signed a two-year, $2 million contract extension with the Flames last summer.

He played 47 games with Calgary in 2007-08, tallying three goals and five points. In 474 career games, the Swedish winger has 67 goals and 168 points.

Warrener, acquired by the Flames in 2005, is entering the final season of a three-year deal that will pay him $2.5 million. In 31 games last season, he had four points and was a minus-2.

Eriksson is set to earn $1.5 million next season, the final year of a two-year contract.

The 6'2", 220-lb defenceman has played 552 NHL games with Calgary, Detroit, Chicago, Florida, Toronto, and Columbus.
