Trade rumors between the Calgary Flames and Toronto Maple Leafs have been heating up in a major way in the last week. Today Elliotte Friedman added new information to the fire hinting at a possible return for either or both Nikita Zadorov and Chris Tanev.

Calgary Flames Looking To Sell Top Defensemen



The Calgary Flames are rumored to be sellers more and more as the season continues. The two names mentioned most are Nikita Zadorov and Chris Tanev. Zadorov is almost guaranteed to be gone after requesting a trade while being in the last year of his contract.

Fresh off a goal and big hit tonight against the @MapleLeafs, I'm told that D Zadorov through his agent @GoldStarHockey Dan Milstein has requested a trade from the @NHLFlames. #HockeyTwitter




With Zadorov likely on the move NHL insider Elliotte Friedman provided an update on what different packages could look like if the Maple Leafs take a run at it.

Friedman Reveals Flames Asking Price For Top Defensemen



According to reports from Elliotte Friedman's latest 32 Thoughts Podcast the Flames asking price for Zadorov and Tanev is known.

The Flames are asking the Maple Leafs for one of their young forwards and a draft pick in return for one or both of the defensemen. The quality of the draft pick depends on whether the players will be a rental or not.

There is growing belief around the NHL that if the Maple Leafs can acquire specifically Nikita Zadorov an extension could come with it. This extension would drive the price up significantly.

Elliott Friedman says that the leafs are interested in Zadorov & Tanev. Zadorovs agents tweet last time drew a lot of teams in so Calgary is waiting for things to settle. But Toronto is very interested in those two. So is Vancouver.


With a bidding war now being created offering Zadorov an extension and the Flames more assets could be the game-changer needed to get him in a Maple Leaf uniform.

Once the Maple Leafs make it back from Sweden there are reports that trade talks could pick up at a rapid pace. As things develop we will continue to keep you in the loop.
