  • Flames Acquire Hanifin and Lindholm

    From Hurricanes for Hamilton, Ferland, and Fox.

    I’m not familiar with Fox, but looks like he could be a diamond in the rough prospect.

    Calgary got a lot of potential in this deal. I’m a fan of Hanifin, and Lindholm could break our in Calgary

      Fox regressed this year at Harvard, but it's hard to say how he'll turn out. It's hard not to like this deal for both teams - Carolina gets the better defenseman right now, while downgrading on Lindholm slightly to Ferland, but also taking a chance on Fox. Calgary gets Hanifin who could break out with the Flames and traded Hamilton from a position of strength, while acquiring an upgrade at forward in Lindholm over Ferland.

      Hanifin and Lindholm were both 5th overall picks. I think Calgary likes Rasmus Andersson more than Oliver Kylington, so maybe the swap of an RD for another LD makes sense:

      Giordano - Stone
      Hanifin - Hamonic
      Brodie - Andersson
      Kylington/Kulak
