The Calgary Flames are now in full on rebuild mode, and with Toronto looking to offload bad contracts, they may make perfect trade partners for Nick Robertson.

The Calgary Flames and Toronto Maple Leafs have been linked as potential trade partners for quite some time, and now with the Flames looking for young talent and the Maple Leafs looking to offload bad contracts, it may be the time to make a deal happen. According to The Athletic's Julian McKenzie, Nick Robertson is a potential trade target for the Flames as they continue to chase young players between 18-23 with upside, a description that fits Robertson perfectly.
The Calgary Flames would love to add a player within the age range of 18-23. So, we put together a list of targets.

Most of them might be attainable through trade. Some through offer sheets...including one option that would up the BoA stakes...
Robertson had his best professional season in 2023/24, tallying 14 goals and 27 points over 56 games played, and despite the injuries, he's still 22-years of age with huge upside. While Toronto should be looking to nurture players of the future, they're in trouble with the salary cap, and with the Flames willing to take on bad contracts for future assets, look at this as a potential trade sometime this off-season.
