Calgary Flames Facing Cap Issues May Have To Move Travis Hamonic

from TSN,

Travis Hamonic is tuning out trade rumours as he approaches his third season with the Calgary Flames.

Hamonic, who along with fellow defenceman TJ Brodie is entering the final season of his current contract, said Tuesday he’s simply focused on training for the upcoming season.

“I’m someone that stays away from that stuff, first of all,” Hamonic told the Calgary Sun. “I obviously really like being here and feel I fit in well with the group and the team. I think you can’t listen to any of that outside noise and have to focus on the task at hand, which is waking up every day in the summertime and getting into the gym, training. And then when that’s over with, you just try to be a dad and not let any of that outside stuff affect you... for me, I just go about my business.”

Trade rumours have swirled around the Flames this off-season as the team has just $7.76 million in cap space with restricted free agents Matthew Tkachuk and Andrew Mangiapane in need of new contracts.
