Eklund continues to list four potential new homes for Lindholm if he is to be traded by the Flames. Eklund also takes into account the chance that Lindholm does indeed stay put in Calgary.

I am working on the Rumor Chart, which will launch soon, and currently my percentages for Lindholm would be

Calgary 10%
Colorado 45%
Boston 30%
LA 10%
Florida 5%

A source tells me that Colorado has «a huge lead in the Lindholm sweeps, and they want to make the deal before the Bruins start getting more serious»That appears to be happening nowThe Bruins are making calls, and the team everyone wrote off is still the dominant force they have been for decades

What will it take to land the prize?

There is no discount at this point
I am told a 1st, 2nd, and 2 prospects (1 oer both preferably a d-man)

All of the teams listed are top contenders for the Stanley Cup this season and would need to land a big fish like Lindholm to significantly improve their roster. As Eklund says the price will not be cheap, however.

Teams like the Kings and Panthers who have stronger prospect pools might have the edge over Calgary and Boston when it comes to assets. As the trade deadline approaches rumors will only get more and more loud when it comes to the future of Elias Lindholm.
