Calgary Flames goaltender Jacob Markstrom has been in the news recently as trade rumors continue to surround the team. Now there has been a shocking update with the netminder.

Insider Reveals Flames Agreed To Trade For Markstrom With Devils

NHL insider Frank Seravalli revealed today that the Flames did in fact have a trade agreed to with the New Jersey Devils that involved Jacob Markstrom. This mins up with what the goaltender himself has revealed as we know he was approached by the team about a possible trade to New Jersey.
So why did that trade not go through? According to Serravalli, Don Maloney, President of Hockey Operations for the team, stepped in on behalf of ownership, who did not approve of the deal.
Seravalli saying he believes Flames and Devils had agreed to a trade in principle for Markstrom and then Don Maloney on behalf of ownership nixed the trade.

"Don Maloney, on behalf of ownership, is believed to have nixed this trade»"
Wow. Frank Seravalli on the Jacob Markstrom to New Jersey rumours.

No One Happy With Results In Markstrom Trade Debacle

This sequence of events has certainly left both teams feeling unsatisfied. The Devils clearly need a goaltender and Markstrom is reported to be their top target. The Flames are best off embracing the rebuild. Furthermore, Markstrom himself is clearly ticked off about this situation. At this point, the Flames have tarnished their relationship with the goaltender.
«No im not happy, I think it could have been handled way better from the top»

Said Jacob Markstrom, and every single #Flames fan who wants to cheer for an actual contending team.

So who benefits from the Flames not trading Markstrom? That is not clear. Perhaps ownership believes the team can make the playoffs thanks to their recent hit stretch. Given how many key players they have already traded though, that seems like asking for a lot.
