Rumors are swirling as Sportsnet's Eric Francis suggests that goaltender Dan Vladar of the Calgary Flames could find himself guarding the net for the Toronto Maple Leafs in their opening game of the 2023-24 season.

While Flames' General Manager Brad Treliving is currently preoccupied with the task of re-signing restricted free agent goaltender Ilya Samsonov, he is well aware of Vladar's capabilities and sees him as a potential match for the Maple Leafs.
Vladar, a 25-year-old netminder, made his presence known in 27 games for the Flames last season, securing a 14-6-5 record with a 2.83 goals against average (GAA) and an impressive .895 save percentage. While predominantly serving as the backup to Jakob Markstrom during his tenure with the Flames, Vladar has racked up 27 wins in 50 games.
Assistant General Manager Craig Conroy of the Calgary Flames finds himself facing a series of crucial decisions when it comes to the team's goaltending situation moving forward. The highly-regarded prospect, Dustin Wolf, has been a force to be reckoned with in the American Hockey League over the past couple of seasons, boasting a remarkable 75 wins in 102 regular-season games and making a strong case for an NHL promotion. Additionally, the Flames recently re-signed Oskar Dansk to a two-way contract, indicating that Conroy may need to explore potential moves involving either Markstrom or Vladar during the upcoming summer.
Vladar, a native of Prague, Czechia, is poised to embark on the first year of a two-year contract extension he inked back in October, carrying an average annual value (AAV) of $2.2 million. Given his manageable AAV, the prospect of acquiring Vladar presents an enticing option not only for the Maple Leafs but for several teams across the league, likely sparking interest from numerous general managers.
