Jacob Markstrom Flames goalie potential trade to Devils
Could the Devils finally land Jacob Markstrom? Latest trade talks suggest a final deadline push, but the Flames' asking price remains steep.

The New Jersey Devils’ hunt for a star goaltender may be taking a dramatic turn. On the latest edition of his 32 Thoughts podcast, NHL insider Elliotte Friedman dropped a bombshell – the Devils are laser-focused on acquiring Calgary Flames veteran Jacob Markstrom and are ready for one more big push.

Friedman indicates that if the Devils can’t get the deal done by the fast-approaching NHL trade deadline, they’ll shift gears and try again during the offseason.

Devils Desperate for Markstrom Deal

It’s a high-stakes poker game, especially after rumors swirled last month that Markstrom had waived his no-trade clause for a potential move to New Jersey, only for the deal to collapse.

The sticking point remains the Flames’ asking price. Calgary won’t budge on salary retention, and rumors point to them seeking a package centered around top prospect Alexander Holtz and a first-round draft pick. It’s a hefty cost, but the Devils are desperate for stability in net.

Will they fold, or will they finally land their man in Markstrom? The NHL trade rumor mill is spinning furiously as the deadline looms.
