Successful Flames draft weekend won’t be measured by 26th overall pick

CALGARY – A perfect draft weekend for the Calgary Flames would open with news Matthew Tkachuk has agreed to a lengthy contract extension. It would also include landing a player 26th overall who has the size and grit of a Tkachuk and can step into the lineup this fall. Neither is going to happen, which is why Brad Treliving enters the pick-a-player party with muted expectations. “If something happens, great – but we may just go there and draft some players,” said the Flames GM, who will arrive at Friday’s draft in Vancouver with five picks including first, third, fourth, fifth and seventh-rounders. Should he indeed return to Calgary with nothing but prospects to show for the star-selecting sleepover, it would be a radical departure for the Flames’ fifth-year architect who has spent the pa

This was an OK acquisition, no? Elias Lindholm: Forward Regular Season: 81 GP, 27 G, 51 A, 78 Pts, 20 PIM, +30, 1.9 CFRel% Playoffs: 5 GP, 1 G, 1 A, 2 Pts, 4 PIM Individual Grades MarkParkinson14= (A) I think it’s safe to say the trade between the Flames and Carolina Hurricanes worked out OK. Lindholm was the third member of one of the NHL’s most potent lines this season and his stats show it. He set career highs in goals (27), assists (51), points (78), +/- (30), PPG (9) and GWG (5). Not bad

Flames GM Treliving thinks RFA class could slow draft trade activity

One of the NHL’s most active draft day general managers believes the large number of big-name RFAs could stymie draft floor activity next week. Brad Treliving, who has made several of his most significant moves on draft weekend, said it will be harder for him and many of his colleagues to manoeuvre as freely as they have in the past due to the cost uncertainty associated with unsigned young stars. “You can’t go out and buy all sorts of cars before you know what the mortgage payment is,” said the Calgary Flames GM, who will arrive at the NHL Draft in Vancouver next Friday unsure how much of his $14.5 million in cap space he will have to allocate for restricted free agent

A look at the kinds of players that Calgary may find at 26 With the Flames holding Pick #26 and different possibilities swirling about the trading of the pick, I wanted to look at some of the players picked with Pick #26. Obviously you can’t judge the picks value based on other players as it comes down to the competencies of the various scouting staffs involved, but here’s an idea of the kind of players chosen and their career numbers. Only eight players selected at Pick#26 have ended up playing more than 100 games with their draft club which is somewhat surprising. That’s not even a season and a half. Of the players selected, the biggest names are Martin Havl
