Hurricanes Trade for Vatanen

February 24th, 2020 The Carolina Hurricanes were a very intriguing team heading into today’s trade deadline. Lost in the hysteria of the David Ayers game Saturday night, they lost both of their goaltenders, James Reimer and Peter Mrazek, to injury as well as defenseman Brett Pesce. While they didn’t nab a...

NHL Rumors

In today's NHL rumor rundown, there is news that the Boston Bruins and Colorado Avalanche are front-runners to land Chris Kreider, but who else might be in on the conversations? Will the New Jersey Devils deal Kyle Palmieri? Plus, there is a bit more information being revealed about Jake Muzzin's deal in Toronto. The Latest on Chris Kreider The New York Rangers are still negotiating with pending UFA Chris Kreider, but at the same time, they're drumming up interest from other teams. Boston, Colorado, New York Islanders and St. Louis plus more are likely interested. Chris Kreider, New York Rangers, Mar. 22, 2018 (Amy Irvin / The Hockey Writers) TSN's Darren Dreger reports the Islanders are definitely among the suitors, but he's not sure how the Rangers would make a deal with the Islanders unless the offer was much better than anyone else's. Friedman noted that "Washington GM Brian MacLellan made a stealth move to see if he could get in on Kreider, but the Dillon...

New Jersey Devils

With the NHL Trade Deadline less than a week away, the New Jersey Devils have already made it clear they'll be sellers. But that doesn't mean they can't be looking to make a couple of trades to improve their future. In last week's edition of 31 Thoughts, Elliotte Friedman mentioned the Devils could be targeting younger players who could get more opportunities in New Jersey than in their current situations.  It's hard to know who's 100% available and who isn't. But there are a few names on TSN's trade bait list who fit the criteria Friedman mentioned. And if the Devils are looking to add a young, long-term piece to compliment Jack Hughes and Nico Hischier at the deadline, they shouldn't hesitate. Here are some potential fits.  Kasperi Kapanen The Toronto Maple Leafs are reportedly in the market for a defenseman, even when Morgan Rielly returns, and they may be willing to part with Kapanen to do so. The 23-year-old Finnish winger has 32...

New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils’ Blake Coleman trade may be getting all the attention. However, the deal that sent ex-captain Andy Greene to the New York Islanders is the one that has truly ushered in a new era. Coleman Deal Outshines Greene One Granted, the haul interim general manager Tom Fitzgerald got in exchange for Coleman is pretty impressive: a conditional 2020 first-round pick and prospect Nolan Foote (a former first-rounder in his own right). Either asset could conceivably become franchise-defining eventually. https://twitter.com/JeffMarek/status/1229206294067843072 In the here and now though, the Devils have to address the elephant in the room and name a new captain, with Greene vacating the position he’s held since 2015. Maybe not immediately, according to Fitzgerald, but soon. Thankfully, they have several decent candidates... but only one who undeniably stands up above the rest in Nico Hischier. Palmieri vs. Zajac Ideally, you’d want your captain to both...

NHL Rumors

In today's NHL rumor rundown, there is news that Connor McDavid might be back sooner than expected. In New Jersey, after making two big trades, is the market now set and will the Devils make more trades? Are the San Jose Sharks targeting cap-strapped teams? Finally, where are the New York Rangers and Chris Kreider at in contract talks? McDavid 2-3 Days Away From Return There is good news coming out of Edmonton as TSN’s Ryan Rishaug is reporting that Connor McDavid’s recovery from an injury thought to keep him out 2-3 weeks, might now only keep him out 2-3 more days. Connor McDavid, Edmonton Oilers (AP Photo/Paul Sancya) Rishaug writes: Sounds like McDavid's recovery is going well. He’s getting treatment, working out and will have further testing Tuesday to see where things are at. He’s expected to rejoin the team in Edmonton in the next 2-3 days. (Corrected an earlier tweet saying test was Monday) While this isn't to suggest he'll be in the lineup this week,...
