Which of the Flames veterans will be on the move?

The Calgary Flames introduced their fans to plenty of young names in 2023-24, with the likes of Dustin Wolf, Connor Zary and Martin Pospisil marking their arrival in the NHL, with many more to come. Jakob Pelletier, Matt Coronato, Adam Klapka and the Flames 2023 and 2024 draft classes all appear to be ready to at least make an impact, it could mean the end for some veterans.

The two obvious names are Andrew Mangiapane and Jacob Markstrom, but after a down year and plenty of talent in the pipeline defensively, Rasmus Andersson has been a name that some have looked at as a potential trade chip. Their fate once again goes back to the question of re-tool or rebuild moving forward, but given the Flames need to acquire pieces for the future, especially in the 2024 NHL Draft, no one above the age of 25 should be off the table.
