Picture of Elias Lindholm. Will the Calgary Flames re-sign Lindholm?
The latest NHL trade rumors for the Calgary Flames have the team close to re-signing forward Elias Lindholm to an extension.

Elias Lindholm has been making the rounds in the NHL trade rumors mill since the start of July. Trade talk has been plenty on Lindholm because the Calgary Flames are trying to re-sign the forward and nothing has progressed.

The Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals have been tied to a Lindholm trade but the NHL’s hard salary cap is making it tough for teams to make moves.

Will the Calgary Flames re-sign Elias Lindholm?

There are NHL trade rumors circulating about Calgary Flames GM Craig Conroy holding discussions with Elias Lindholm regarding a potential multi-year contract valued at $8-$9 million annually.

According to a recent appearance by Elliotte Friedman on the NHL Network, contract negotiations between Lindholm and the Flames have stalled. It was confirmed that the proposed salary being discussed is in the range of $8-$9 million per year.

If Lindholm is unable to work out an extension with the Flames, it is believed his likely trade destination will be the Boston Bruins.

What are NHL fans saying about Elias Lindholm re-signing with the Calgary Flames?

Come on Calgary Flames, get Elias Lindholm re-signed, this is ridiculous if we lose another player!

He is re-signing in Calgary. Contract talk discussions are quiet because the team and player are not releasing any information. He will be re-signed for $8.5 million a year.

The Flames either have to trade Lindholm now or re-sign him. Can’t move him at the NHL trade deadline if no contract is signed. Can’t risk him getting injured.
