There are ongoing NHL trade rumors that the Calgary Flames might trade defenseman Noah Hanifin, but no specific details have been confirmed.

Noah Hanifin headed to the Buffalo Sabres?

What would it take for the Calgary Flames to trade Noah Hanifin to the Buffalo Sabres?

If Calgary wants to get the max return from Buffalo it will likely be a sign-and-trade scenario.

The proposed trade:

To Calgary Flames

Ryan Johnson, Left Defense (ELC @ $925,00 for two more seasons)
2024 first-round draft pick

To Buffalo Sabres

Noah Hanifin, defenseman ($4.95 million, unrestricted free agent next summer )

For the trade to happen, Hanifin would have to agree to a seven or eight-year contract extension with the Sabres. Without the extension, no trade ever happens.

What are NHL fans saying about a Noah Hanifin trade to the Buffalo Sabres?

No one wants Hanifin. He would have been traded by now. Either Calgary is asking too much or he is demanding too much on his next salary.

Hanifin is a great skater to go along with being 6’3″ and 210lbs. He will be moved at some point this NHL season.

He will be packaged to the Toronto Maple Leafs for William Nylander. Book it!
