The Calgary Flames have traded a lot of draft selections over the past several months. Speaking to the media at the 2017 NHL Draft, general manager Brad Treliving joked about how many picks he’s traded – the joke being it betrays his reputation as a guy who never trades picks.
With all the picks moving, and a laundry list of conditions attached to these picks, here’s a handy guide to the selections the Flames have remaining in the next three drafts.
The Mike Smith trade:
- If the Flames make the playoffs in 2017-18, then Arizona receives the Flames’ second round pick in either 2018 or 2019 (Calgary’s choice).
- If the Flames do not make the playoffs in 2017-18, then Arizona receives the Flames’ third round pick in either 2018 or 2019 (Calgary’s choice).
Since the 2018 second was traded to the Islanders, Calgary “chooses” to send their 2019 second to Arizona if they make the playoffs in 2017-18.
The Travis Hamonic trade:
- The Flames will send the Islanders a second round pick in either of 2019 or 2020, depending which is available based on the Smith conditions, and receive the Islanders’ fourth round pick the same year.
If the Flames miss the playoffs in 2017-18, the Islanders receive Calgary’s second round pick in 2019 (since it won’t be sent to the Coyotes). If they make the playoffs, then the Isles receive their 2020 second round pick instead.
- No 1st rounder (to NY Islanders)
- No 2nd rounder (to NY Islanders)
- Possibly no 3rd rounder (Flames’ choice, if they miss playoffs in 2017-18, to Arizona)
- Own 4th rounder and Florida’s (from Jiri Hudler trade)
- Own 5th rounder (unless Michael Stone re-signs, then to Arizona)
- Own 6th rounder
- Own 7th rounder
- No 2nd rounder (to NY Islanders, unless they make playoffs in 2017-18 then to Arizona)
- Own 2nd rounder (unless they make playoffs in 2017-18 then to NY Islanders)
