2 Calgary Flames Trade Candidates Heading Into 2024 Offseason

The Calgary Flames are in the midst of re-tooling on the fly as GM Craig Conroy had a lot on his plate prior to this season's trade deadline. The moves are expected to continue into the NHL Entry Draft and into free agency, as the Flames have a ton of flexibility this summer.

After the likes of Nikita Zadorov, Chris Tanev, and Noah Hanifin were traded this season, here's two Flames who could be dealt this summer:

Andrew Mangiapane

The 27-year-old winger hasn't quite lived up to expectations this season and is a prime trade candidate this summer. Mangiapane has one season left on his dealt at $5.5 million and owns an eight-team modified no-trade clause. This season through 69 games, he's only scored 13 goals and registered 38 points. Tough for someone making $5.5 million. Conroy will look to make a move and as the team won't have any interest re-signing him to an extension this summer. After spending parts of seven seasons in Calgary, it's time for a change of scenery.

Jacob Markstrom

The Markstrom trade debacle was one of the craziest storylines to follow ahead of this season's trade deadline. The New Jersey Devils wanted Markstrom and the two sides had a deal in place, however salary retention creeped it's ugly head up and the Flames all of a sudden were out. Markstrom was pissed, he went public with his displeasure for how things were handled in the media and it's very likely he gets moved this summer. The veteran goaltender has two seasons left at $6 million AAV and holds a full no-movement clause. Look for the LA Kings to be very interested this summer after trying to acquire Linus Ullmark ahead of the trade deadline.
