They could currently take on a salary of almost $2.1 million at the deadline, and if they sent a defender Marcos Friedmann to the AHL, they could increase that number to $2.9 million.
Could you find an interested party to Teddy bear ($2.1 million) or brock mcginn ($2.75 million) will they have even more space? Could they move? jeff petry and his $6.25 million?
They need to find a third-line hub: potential business targets.

You call waiting for the prices to drop and then see where they sit
Eric Francis of Sportsnet: The Calgary Flames’ decision on what to do before the deadline will go all the way. Flame general manager Brad Treliving.
“Yeah, you have to be careful.
It’s great to get things done early, but the reality is, look at the prices. There have been some very good players on the move, but for the most part, it’s a rental market and when you’re solidly in one place, it’s easier to do.
I’m not going to start throwing away the best assets. I think we are a good team that has underperformed.
We’ve done all our work by the deadline, we have an idea of what’s going on.”
Treliving says that they have been talking but nothing makes sense to them yet. He won’t trade players for moves when asked about being vendors and that their pending UFAs won’t make massive profits.
The notion that the defender Oliver Kylington I could come back and help the team this year it gets harder as the days go by.
