The Calgary Flames had a very disappointing year and this has lead to NHL trade rumors making the rounds that some players under contract would like to be moved this offseason.
One player that is popping up in the rumor mill is Elias Lindholm. There will be demand for his services as there is a lack of quality players in the free agent market this summer.
Does Elias Lindholm want out of Calgary?
Darren Dreger was on TSN Radio 1050 and was asked about the Calgary Flames situation and do players want out of Calgary? He confirmed this rumor.
At Elias Lindholm’s exit interview with the media he seemed very skeptical about re-signing with the Calgary Flames. He will be an unrestricted free agent next summer but can sign a long-term deal with the team on July 1.
Lindholm, 28, is a quality center and can put up big numbers when playing with the right line mates and he is not finding that in Calgary anymore playing for a coach like Darryl Sutter.
The Flames would be able to get some good assets in return for Lindholm if they do decide to trade him this summer.
