Flames still looking to make moves

The Calgary Flames are actively combing through the trade market in an attempt to bolster their roster for the 2013-14 season.

Flames GM Jay Feaster tried making impactful trades during the NHL Draft, but came up empty.

Feaster also spoke with free agent center Vincent Lecavalier about joining the Flames' organization, but a source close to the situation told TFP on Tuesday that Lecavalier has informed Feaster that he will not be pursuing Calgary as an option.

The Flames continue to entertain trade calls for forward Michael Cammalleri, who has a limited no-trade clause and can list up to seven teams he will not accept a deal to.

Cammalleri, 31, has one-year left on his current contract that will pay him $7 million next season, though his salary cap hit is $6 million.

He registered 13 goals and 19 assists for 32 points in 44 games this past season with Calgary.

The Flames are primarily looking to acquire a first- or second-line center, a top-six forward and a top-four defenseman, but are more likely to go the trade route than free agency.

"(Free agency) is something that we don't believe will necessarily fill all of our needs," Feaster told the Calgary Herald. "We do feel, though, that there are some needs that we have -- we still need to play the games, we still need to be competitive. There are some things that we are going to take a look at."
