NHL Trade Rumors On the: 5 Things for Maple Leafs [To-Do List], Vesey, Russell, Backup Goalie, Lupul...

• TSN: Kristen Shilton lists 5 things the Toronto Maple Leafs have on their To-Do List:

 

1. Get a backup goaltender. While it was reported they signed Jhonas Enroth, the rumor has not yet been confirmed yet.

 

2. Go after Jimmy Vesey. They're gonna have to compete with the Bruins & Blackhawks & Sabres.

 

3. Potentially sign a defenseman. Rumored they still like Kris Russell.

 

4. Decide what they are gonna do with Joffrey Lupul. They can possibly trade him or buy him out. Earlier this summer news came around that Lupul had told a friend he won't be playing for the Leafs next season.

 

NHL Trade Rumors On the: 3 Things  for TB Lightning [To-Do List], Bishop to Stars?!, Kucherov Buzz, Drouin & Stamkos Line...

 ESPN: Matthew Coller lists 3 Points the Tampa Bay Lightning will have to address in the soon future:

 

1. Ben Bishop is likely to be traded due to cap space but is there still a possibility he stays? TB will have to decide on his future soon. The Dallas Stars could be a trading partner.

 

2. Should the TB Lightning trade Nikita Kucherov or keep him? Matthew says a bridge deal is a bad choice however because then he'd be a UFA in a couple years.

 

3. Steven Stamkos should have a new line mate next season. Will it be Jonathan Drouin?

 

NHL Trade Rumors On the: UPDATED: Vesey/Blackhawks Buzz, Line: Toews/Kane/Vesey

• The Athletic: Scott Powers writes the Chicago Blackhawks are one of about 4 teams Jimmy Vesey & his camp are considering to sign with this offseason. 

 

Vesey will likely be getting a $925K entry level deal, with up to $2.85M in bonuses. While CHI can fit that kind of contract, they will have to persuade him to sign.

 

One point the Blackhawks can bring up is the chance of possibly playing with Jonathan Toews or Patrick Kane. That could be a HUGE selling point.

 

As of right now we do know Blackhawks GM has seen Jimmy Vesey live about 3/4 times if not more.
