Calgary Flames Rumors: Goalie Becoming Trade Candidate

The Calgary Flames are expected to make changes to their group after a disappointing 2022-23 season. With Dustin Wolf looking like he is ready for the NHL, there have been rumblings that the Flames will look to move Daniel Vladar this offseason because of it. 

Vladar had a year of mixed results in 2022-23. Although he had a solid 14-6-5 record, his 2.91 GAA and .895 SV% show that he had struggled with consistency. With Wolf expected to receive more NHL time next year, it would make sense to move Vladar.

Although Vladar had some struggles this season, there should be some interest in him. After all, he is still only 25 years old and has the potential to be a solid 1B netminder when performing at his best. As a result, we should expect to see teams like the Los Angeles Kings, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Buffalo Sabres to be some of the clubs who pursue him this offseason from here.
