Flames: 3 Top Trade Candidates Heading Into 2024

Christmas is over, and now the new year is less than one week away. Thus, over these next few days, we here at NHL Trade Rumors will discuss the three top trade candidates from each team heading into 2024.

Elias Lindholm: Elias Lindholm is one of the top trade targets heading into the deadline, so he naturally makes this list. The top-six center has had a down season thus far, but he will still get a lot of attention because of his past success and strong two-way play. 

Noah Hanifin: Noah Hanifin is one of the best defensemen available heading into the new year. He plays top-pairing minutes, is dependable defensively, and chips in offensively. Several teams will target him this season because of it. 

Chris Tanev: Chris Tanev is another notable trade target on the Flames, who is set to be moved before the deadline passes. Several teams have already been linked to the veteran, and that will only continue as we inch closer to March.
