Flames’ trade deadline primer: Burke has some pieces to move as rebuilding process continues

Brian Burke, back from Sochi, has until March 5 — a little more than a week — to transform outgoing assets into prospects and picks. In other words, a future.

Plenty of teams focused on Flames

With a number of players set to become free agents this summer, the Flames have plenty of attractive pieces available for rent.

Forwards Michael Cammalleri, Lee Stempniak and Matt Stajan, and defenseman Kris Russell are among Calgary’s pending unrestricted free agents, all of whom could moved by the deadline.

Calgary will not trade their first round pick

In a wide-ranging interview with the 58-year-old acting GM, Burke told the Calgary Sun nobody has pitched him on peddling his first-round draft pick, which will undoubtedly be a top-five lottery selection this summer.

More importantly, he says he sees no scenario in which he will offer it up.

“No — it’s not in play,” said Burke, who has spoken sparingly as promised.

“We’ve had no inquiries — people wait to see the draft sequence.”
