The Flames will have to make a decision about these free agents next year

While the Flames made a couple of big splashes in unrestricted free agency to land Jacob Markstrom and Chris Tanev, it’s likely this summer will be remembered more distinctly for what the team lost.

TJ Brodie, Erik Gustafsson, Derek Forbort, Mark Jankowski, Cam Talbot, and Tobias Rieder are all gone, and Travis Hamonic looks likely to join them. All of these players frequently played regular shifts for the Flames last season. The Flames brought in two big names to help replace these seven notable departures but, otherwise, they’re probably going to have to try and replace them via promotions from within.
