Today a new rumor has suggested that Noah Hanifin's time in Calgary could be rapidly coming to an end.

Multiple Teams Making Calls On Hanifin

While this is not much to go on it does suggest that the Noah Hanifin market could be heating up as the weeks have gone on. The Maple leafs and Bruins are both in a race for the top of the Atlantic Division so both being in on the player makes sense.

A recent post on X put together a couple of potential trade packages for Calgary Flames players. One of those players was Noah Hanifin. Using this post as a model let's look at what it would take.


The post indicates the price for Hanifin is likely a first and second-round pick along with a top defensive prospect or young defenseman.
