Toronto Maple Leafs

In the second installment of Sunday's NHL rumor rundown, there is news on Wayne Simmonds possibly being a target for the Winnipeg Jets, the Senators have seemingly made up their mind on their big-three free agents and the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking at a problem in net they'd rather avoid. Wayne Simmonds and the Winnipeg Jets?

Ferland has played his way into the spotlight, however, and the Hurricanes would be well-served to make sure he sticks around beyond this season. What Ferland Brings I wrote when the trade happened, "The biggest thing that makes this lean towards “advantage Hurricanes” is the physical play and toughness of Ferland. He is not afraid to play a physical brand of hockey, not afraid to make a hit. He’s not a dirty player by any stretch, but simply brings to the ‘Canes a bit of grit that they’ve been missing." Kent Wilson wrote an excellent piece about Ferland in The Athletic last June. Wilson summarized, "Ferland is very close to becoming the power forward and functionally tough sniper that every GM and coach in...
