NHL Rumors: Calgary Flames Having Trade Offers Rejected

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, the Calgary Flames are working the phones, trying to acquire a scoring forward. They've apparently been interested in this trade since the summer months.

Friedman shared some info on 32 Thoughts in the intermission of Hockey Night in Canada and had this to say:

I heard this week the Flames have been looking around for a scoring forward. I've been told that's been going on since August, so I don't think there's anything pressing on that one right now

The Flames don't have basically any cap space as CapFriendly reports them with just over $76,470. It will have to be a money-in money-out type of trade as the Flames rank in the bottom half of the league, scoring only 2.92 goals per game. This coming after a 3.55 goal per game season last year. 

Expect the Flames to continue to pester other teams to make a deal as general manager Brad Treliving isn't shy of making bold moves to improve his hockey club.
