As is the case every summer in the NHL, we will soon witness a veritable game of musical chairs among the league’s goalies.

But this year more than ever, very big names are available on the transaction market. We are talking here, among other things, about Jacob Markstrom of the Calgary Flames, John Gibson of the Anaheim Ducks, Linus Ullmark of the Boston Bruins and even possibly Juuse Saros of the Nashville Predators.

Moreover, everything indicates that Markstrom’s days are numbered in Calgary and that he would have played his last game with the Flames. We now have a better idea of ​​what it would cost to acquire him, as he has a no-trade clause in his contract but would be willing to waive it to facilitate a transaction.

According to what the journalist reports Bruce Garrioch of Ottawa Citizenthe GM of the Flames, Craig Conroywould have required a 1st round pick in addition to a top prospect from the Ottawa Senators who would be aggressive in the goalie market.

  • Aged 34, Jacob Markstrom is a 2nd round pick (31st overall) in 2008. This season, he compiled a record of 23-23-2 with a goals against average of 2.78 and an efficiency percentage of .905 in 48 games. He has 2 years left on his contract earning him an average of 6 million per season.

According to several sources, the New Jersey Devils are also very aggressive in this matter.
