The Score NHL is reporting that the Flames have stepped up their goal tender search in a big way:

Ben Bishop started 60 games for the Lightning this past season. He had a very respectable 35-21-4 record with a Save % of .926%. Brian Elliott started 38 games for the St. Louis Blues and had a record of 23-8-6 with a Save % of .930%.

Both keepers would clearly be upgrades for a Flames team which struggled between the pipes this past season. Keep it here for updates regarding this situation and all Flames news.
