With Free Agency approaching tomorrow, we’ve gathered a list of ten free agents the Calgary Flames should try to target.
Free agency is one of the craziest days in the off-season. It’s almost my favourite day but only because of Jarome Iginla‘s birthday. Otherwise, it’s quite a busy day in the NHL. Busy/anxiety-ridden, potato/potahtoe. But for the Calgary Flames, they’ve already made some moves.
On the second day of the draft, the Flames traded away D Dougie Hamilton, F Micheal Ferland, and prospect Adam Fox (I’m still crying, thanks) for D Noah Hanifin and F Elias Lindholm. With GM Brad Treliving already making a move at the blue-line, I’m not sure if he’s still planning on making more moves when it comes to defence.
I originally had Michal Kempny on this list as a possible defence option before the trade. But then he re-signed with the Washington Capitals. And instead of replacing him with another defenceman, I decided not to include any defencemen (in case you were wondering why there were none on this list).
Let’s move on.
This year is an exciting year for the free agency frenzy with some big names available. So who would the Flames target? We’ve got ten potential candidates who can suit this Flames roster.
