Amidst speculation in Calgary about a potential post-All-Star break push, doubts linger whether it might be too late for the Flames, currently positioned at 12th in the Western Conference. The team, trailing by four points for a wild card spot, faces crucial decisions from GM Craig Conroy regarding the fate of key players like Noah Hanifin, Elias Lindholm, and Chris Tanev.

Of particular interest is the potential availability of Lindholm, speculated to be the most sought-after center on the market. However, the cost to acquire him poses a significant hurdle. Noted experts Corey Pronman and Julian McKenzie propose a hefty price, citing the Bo Horvat trade as a benchmark. They suggest that acquiring Lindholm may require a first-round pick, a top prospect, and a player.

Considering the steep cost, teams eyeing Lindholm might explore securing a long-term contract with him. Pronman and McKenzie have pondered on potential offers from three teams: the Bruins, Avalanche, and Stars. In the case of the Bruins, a proposed deal could include Matthew Poitras, a 2025 first-round pick, and a center like Morgan Geekie.

As discussions revolve around Lindholm's potential move, it becomes evident that the price tag is substantial, even for a player of his caliber. Notably, after the Bo Horvat trade, he inked a long-term agreement. This prompts a crucial question: do the Bruins truly require this level of reinforcement for the playoffs? The answer awaits as the Flames and GM Craig Conroy weigh their options in the midst of a challenging season.
