Nine possible Matthew Tkachuk trade destinations: Which NHL deal makes the most sense?

While other NHL general managers are finding serenity in the offseason, Calgary Flames GM Brad Treliving has watched the foundation of his championship-caliber roster crumble into dust.

Top scorer Johnny Gaudreau left as a free agent, signing with the Columbus Blue Jackets, citing family considerations that superseded the Flames' best efforts to retain the winger. Now it's Matthew Tkachuk, the team's second-leading scorer (104 points last season), who's poised to leave.

Tkachuk informed Treliving that he would not seek a long-term contract to keep him in Calgary beyond the 2022-23 season, his last before unrestricted free agency.
