Flames Among Teams Interested In Sharks Star Forward

It has been a tough season for the Calgary Flames as they find themselves sitting fifth in the Pacific Division and second in the Western Conference Wild Card race with a 24-17-9 record and 57 points. It has definitely been different compared to last season’s success when they finished with 111 points and first in the Pacific Division. Throughout the season, the Flames have been lacking a scoring wing in their top six, and with the trade deadline now five weeks away, expect general manager Brad Treliving to address the issue finally.

The Calgary Flames are one of several teams that have been linked to San Jose Sharks star forward Timo Meier. The talented forward is having a career year scoring 28 goals and 48 points across 50 games. There have been some concerns regarding Meier’s future past this season, as he will be a restricted free agent and is due a $10 million qualifying offer. This was thought to be a problem as teams would be reluctant to pay a heavy price for Meier without any long-term extension in place.

But over the weekend, Sharks general manager Mike Grier has given Meier’s agent permission to speak to other teams. Now that Grier has opened up the phone lines, interested teams can begin working with Meier’s agent on a possible long-term extension to lower his average annual value.

The Flames are not the only team interested as the competition will be fierce as the Toronto Maple Leafs, New Jersey Devils, Edmonton Oilers, and Seattle Kraken all remain very interested.

 Expect any package heading back to San Jose to include a first-round pick and top prospect, along with one roster player who can dress for the Sharks for the remainder of at least this season.
