Flames still need to create some cap space, could look to move Michael Frolik
Kent Wilson of The Athletic: The Calgary Flames still need to re-sign restricted free agents Matthew Tkachuk and Andrew Mangiapane. They’ll likely need to clear out $5 million in salary-cap space to do so.
Moving defenseman Travis Hamonic seems unlikely. Defenseman T.J. Brodie is one option that could be moved, with forward Michael Frolik being another.
Frolik has one year left on his deal with a cap hit of $4.3 million but a salary of $3 million. The free agent market is a little thin, so Frolik could be an option for a team looking for a top-six/nine forward. The Flames also wouldn’t be looking for a big return.
Teams that might be interested in Frolik include the Ottawa Senators, New Jersey Devils, Philadelphia Flyers, and Columbus Blue Jackets.
Frolik does have a 10-team no-trade list.
Lightning looking to move goaltender Loui Domingue
Joe Smith: Lightning GM Julien Brisebois is trying to find a new team for goaltender Loui Domingue. Scott Wedgewood and Mike Condon are their likely goaltender tandem in Syracuse.
TSN: The Tampa Bay Lightning signed Curtis McElhinney on July 1st to a two-year deal. Yesterday they acquired Mike Condon in a trade with the Ottawa Senators that sent Ryan Callahan the other way.
The Lightning are now looking to trade goaltender Loui Domingue as they currently have four goaltenders on one-way contracts. Domingue carries a $1.15 million cap hit this season.
“(The goalie) market is fickle,” BriseBois said. “It can change in a hurry. You can go from no one looking for a goaltender to three teams looking for a goaltender. I’ve had ongoing talks with a couple of organizations, and hopefully something pans out over the next coming weeks here.
“I’m fairly confident he’ll find a new home prior to the start of the season.”
Domingue has a career 55-49-8 record with a .907 save percentage and a 2.97 GAA.
