Calgary Flames Star Forward Threatens Exit If Team Pursues Rebuild

Published November 15, 2023 at 2:04 PM

When Nazem Kadri signed with the Calgary Flames, it appeared as though the team were ready to compete in a wide open Western Conference, but unfortunately for them, that couldn't be further from reality.

Nazem Kadri wants out if the Flames rebuild


According to Darren Dreger of TSN, if the Flames do indeed opt to go the direction many have predicted and rebuild with younger stars, it appears the 33-year old wants out.

Couple interesting #Flames tidbits this evening:

Hanifin extension was close to 60M in total. Ship has now sailed.

3-4 teams already in on Tanev. Dilemma with Tanev, trade now or wait/risk injury

Dreger: Kadri not interested in staying with the Flames if they rebuild

That report comes alongside Pierre LeBrun's prediction of the Flames being open for business on many of their veterans as they look to get younger, quicker and add more draft capital.

The youth movement has arrived in Calgary

Already this season the Flames have seen starring performances from Dustin Wolf, Connor Zary, Matt Coronato and Martin Pospisil, and with several more names waiting in the system, it appears the Flames could look for a quick rebuild by acquiring more 20-22 year old players for this team.

Regardless, if this team isn't looking for a Stanley Cup, the former Avalanche and Maple Leafs star wants out, and despite his $7 million AAV, there's teams that would be interested, especially after his solid run of late in which he's got points in six of his past seven games.
