Buy or sell in free agency?

While most fans look at this roster and the future and believe a rebuild is the way to go, Craig Conroy recent addressed the future, revealing they are looking closely at the way the Dallas Stars were able to re-tool on the fly so well. The best way to know exactly how the Flames are looking at their future is how they approach the 2024 free agency class, as they could land a solid name or two if they are indeed looking to compete.

Names like Steven Stamkos, Sam Reinhart, Jake Guentzel, Jonathan Marchessault and many more could all be used for the Flames to compete right now, but if they are looking to rebuild properly, it makes sense to stay away from expensive names like this. With the team locked into the likes of Nazem Kadri and Jonathan Huberdeau, adding more expensive free agents isn’t the right move, but knowing the front office’s desire to make a playoff push, don’t be shocked to see them in the race for a top name.
