NEEDS: A right winger with touch. Left winger Micheal Ferland has been good on the right side of the top line, but there’s no right-shot depth.
AVAILABILITY: Calgary has several ‘D’ almost NHL-ready, so T.J. Brodie, Travis Hamonic or Michael Stone could be peddled.
UFAs: M. Backlund (C), J. Jagr (RW), K. Versteeg (LW), M. Stajan (C), M. Bartkowski (D), T. Glass (LW), D. Prout (D)
TRADE BAIT: T.J. Brodie hasn’t been the same since getting moved from the right side of the top ‘D’ tandem with Mark Giordano a few years ago. But he’s still just 27, and he’s a terrific skater and puck-mover on a good contract. As a top-pairing blueliner, he could fetch a scoring winger in return. Oliver Kylington and Juuso Valimaki are next in line to replace him.
