Get the inside scoop on the Calgary Flames' ongoing contract extension discussions with star forward Elias Lindholm.

TSN’s Pierre LeBrun recently shed light on the ongoing contract negotiations between the Calgary Flames and forward Elias Lindholm. It appears that, despite the Flames’ desire to lock Lindholm into a long-term deal, the two parties are still not quite on the same page.

Lindholm, 28, a key player for Calgary, has consistently proven his value with his scoring ability, defensive prowess, and all-around contribution to the team’s success.

NHL Rumors: Will Erik Brannstrom or Mathieu Joseph be traded?

Will Elias Lindholm receive a contract similar to Mark Scheifele’s?

Interestingly, LeBrun hints that the Flames might be eyeing Mark Scheifele’s recent contract extension with the Winnipeg Jets as a reference point for their talks with Lindholm. Scheifele’s 7-year, $59.5 million contract reflects the Jets’ willingness to commit to a player’s long-term presence and contribution to the team.

As negotiations continue, the Flames will be balancing their salary cap space while attempting to secure Lindholm’s services for the foreseeable future.

What are Flames fans saying about an Elias Lindholm contract extension?

Lindholm will not get $8.5 million a year. Not worth it.

As a Flames fan we can’t let Lindholm walk after this season. Either get him signed or trade him.

He will sign an 8-year, $64 million a yea deal with the Flames. Book it!
