NHL Trade Rumors: Flames Linked To Big Moves This Summer

This offseason, the Calgary Flames are planning on making strategic moves to enhance their roster, focusing on acquiring young, proven NHL talent.

General Manager Craig Conroy has set his sights on key targets like Martin Necas of the Carolina Hurricanes and Tanner Jeannot of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Necas, who is set to become a restricted free agent with arbitration rights on July 1, fits the dynamic and skilled profile Conroy is looking to add, as noted by Anthony Di Marco. With several other teams, including the new Utah franchise, the Vancouver Canucks, and the Seattle Kraken also in pursuit, the Flames face stiff competition for his acquisition.

Conroy's interest in Jeannot, as discussed on the "32 Thoughts" podcast, highlights the team's desire to bring in players who can immediately impact their performance. Jeannot’s youth and NHL experience make him an attractive option for a team looking to bolster its forward depth.

With nearly $20 million in salary cap space, the Flames are well-equipped to pursue these significant additions, ensuring they can compete effectively in the upcoming season.

The Flames also face decisions regarding their current roster, particularly the future of goaltender Jacob Markstrom. After nearly being traded to the New Jersey Devils during the season, talks are expected to resume as the NHL Draft approaches, according to David Pagnotta of the The Fourth Period.
