3 Calgary Flames Who Could Be Traded This Offseason

It's become loud and clear, the Calgary Flames are open for business. GM Craig Conroy continues to work the trade market, moving out veteran players for younger roster players and high draft picks. 

From last season with Nikita Zadorov, Chris Tanev, Noah Hanifin and Elias Lindholm, to this offseason with Jacob Markstrom and Andrew Mangiapane. Conroy is willing and able to make more deals and here's three Flames to keep an eye on on the trade market as the NHL Draft weekend begins:

Nazem Kadri

Craig Button of TSN points out that teams should be calling the Flames about Kadri as their number two centre. The veteran forward has five years left on his contract, paying him $7 million per season. He does hold a full no-movement clause and has all the say in the matter. His contract doesn't change to a modified no-trade clause until the 2026-27 season when it goes down to 13-team protection. Kadri posted 29 goals and 75 points in 82 games last season. With a rebuild seemingly happening in Calgary, there's growing potential of Kadri asking for a move to a contender.

Blake Coleman

Another veteran forward who could become a prime trade candidate is Coleman. He has three seasons left at $4.9 million AAV and holds a modified 10-team no-trade list. Coleman recorded 54 points in 78 games last season and has shown throughout his career he can step up when the games matter most, with 31 points in 65 Stanley Cup Playoff games. At 32 years old, like Kadri, Coleman would likely prefer being in a win-now environment. 

Rasmus Andersson

While the free-agent market is red hot for talented defensemen, the trade market will be interesting to watch and Andersson could be in the middle of it. The 27-year-old has two seasons left on his deal at $4.55 million annually and he'll submit a six-team no-trade list on July 1. The Flames can move him at will prior to the 1st. Andersson had 39 points in 78 games last season and has shown he has 50-point potential in this league.
