Elias Lindholm has been in the NHL trade rumors mill all summer with him mainly being linked to the Boston Bruins.
With the Bruins having no 2024 first-round pick, no salary cap space, and the unwillingness to trade forward Jake DeBrusk, Lindholm will likely be staying put in Calgary.
Could the Calgary Flames trade Elias Lindholm at the NHL trade deadline?
A playoff-contending team in need of a center will come knocking on the Flames door, but it will cost them to complete the trade.
NHL trade rumors have the Flames getting a first-round pick, prospect, and roster player to complete a Lindholm trade if salary is retained in the deal. The ask is comparable to what the New York Islanders paid for Bo Horvat last year.
