TRADE WINDS

Craig Conroy says league-wide trade talk has heated up in Dallas

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson / CalgaryFlames.com

DALLAS - Things are heating up in Texas.

Prior to arriving in the Lone Star State, assistant GM Craig Conroy generalized trade discussions as quiet.

But ever since the 31 teams landed in Dallas, there has been plenty of chatter about potential moves.

"Two days ago, it was really quiet - nothing was going on," Conroy told CalgaryFlames.com. "But in the last two days - maybe not the first day we got here, on Tuesday but on Wednesday and today - it's definitely picking up.

"We don't want to just do a deal to make a deal. We want to make the right deal - something that helps us moving forward."

POTENTIAL LATE ROUND GEMS - DEFENCE

Torie Peterson highlights six blueliners who could be diamonds in the rough in this year's draft

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson / CalgaryFlames.com

The Flames hold four picks in the 2018 NHL Draft: 105, 108, 167 and 198. With this in mind, CalgaryFlames.com's Torie Peterson has profiled six defencemen who may be available in the back-half of the draft and could end up being potential diamonds in the rough:

Egor Zamula - Calgary Hitmen - 2 goals, 16 assists, 18 points in 69 games

There's plenty of potential in Zamula's game. The blueliner is an excellent skater, is rarely caught out of position, handles the puck with ease, and can work a powerplay. He isn't overly physical but will engage when needed. He also has a 6-foot-3 frame to grow into as he continues to build up his strength.

POTENTIAL LATE ROUND GEMS - GOALTENDERS

Torie Peterson highlights five netminders who could be diamonds in the rough in this year's draft

by TORIE PETERSON @ToriePeterson / CalgaryFlames.com

The Flames hold four picks in the 2018 NHL Draft: 105, 108, 167 and 198. With this in mind, CalgaryFlames.com's Torie Peterson has profiled five goaltenders who may be available in the back-half of the draft and could end up being potential diamonds in the rough:

Jakub Skarek - HC Dukla Jihlava - 2.41 GAA, .913 SP% in 21 games

The lanky Skarek is best known for his athleticism, moving extremely well for a goaltender growing into his 6-foot-3 frame. He's agile and flexible, throwing himself into position and making tough saves thanks to his lightning-fast reaction time. He isn't afraid to challenge shooters, playing aggressively whenever he deems it necessary.
