A new report from NHL insider Pierre LeBrun has suggested that the Calgary Flames are discussing trades involving Jacob Markstrom with several other teams.

The Calgary Flames were on the verge of moving on from goalie Jacob Markstrom at the NHL Trade Deadline. After an inability to get a deal done, the discussions were pushed to the summer. Now with the offseason approaching insider Pierre LeBrun says the New Jersey Devils have begun showing interest again in Jacob Markstrom.
Those conversations with the Flames have taken up again. We know that those two teams almost had a deal done before the trade deadline earlier this season before March 8. It fell apart, but the Devils remain interested in Jacob Markstrom and as importantly, Jacob Markstrom has a full no-move, but my understanding is he's willing to go to New Jersey

However, it seems the New Jersey Devils are not alone in their pursuit of the Swedish goaltender. Pierre LeBrun expects several other teams to join the conversation throughout the summer.
There are other teams now that weren't there on Markstrom before the trade deadline that have now entered the picture. The Flames are getting calls from multiple teams on Markstrom, not just from the Devils... At this point in time, there's still a difference of opinion on the return, on what it should cost the Devils to get Jacob Markstrom out of Calgary and the Flames are willing to be patient in terms of having a team meet their price.

While the Flames are able to be patient and get the deal they want a deal is almost certain to happen. This is known because Jacob Markstrom and his agent have requested to be moved before next season according to a new report.

With that in mind, the New Jersey Devils would be a good landing spot that should contend to the level that Jacob Markstrom expects. Although nothing is at the finish line yet these situations can develop quickly. Once there is more information that comes out we will pass along the latest news.
