NHL Trade Rumors On the: Red Wings NOT Signing Vesey, Tatar/Smith OTB?!...

• MLive: BREAKING; Detroit Red Wings Assistant GM has said they tried their best to convince Jimmy Vesey with a big pitch, but the college star told DET "he would like to play close to home". Could this possibly affect the Chicago Blackhawks chances?

 

Ansar Khan writes Tomas Jurco & Gustav Nyquist are not valued enough to bring in a Top 4/2 Defenseman. That's why it's expected Tomas Tatar is the player OTB for the Detroit Red Wings right now. 

 

Brendan Smith is set to become a Free Agent at the end of the season. A long term deal is possible but if he struggles then Smith will be a trading piece at the 2017 Trade Deadline.

 

 

NHL Trade Rumors On the: #VeseyWatch Buzz...

• Aaron Portzline: Reports suggest the Buffalo Sabres, Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, New Jersey Devils, and the New York Rangers [maybe] are the top Vesey contenders.

Joe Haggerty: Source says the Boston Bruins will have the last word with Jimmy Vesey. Several teams have already met with the Award winning talent yesterday.

• Mike Grinnell: Source says the Toronto Maple Leafs will have a few Players go to Boston to meet & convince Jimmy Vesey.

• Adrian Dater [Twitter]: Chicago Blackhawks have offered Jimmy Vesey a MAX Contract. A max deal would be $925K | 2YRS. $3.775M in total.

Most teams will be offering this max deal so Vesey will have to decide between playing near family and friends or going to a team that has a good future.

 

NHL Trade Rumors On the: Senators/Top 6 Def, Ceci Contract Buzz...

• Ottawa Sun: OTT have been interested in acquiring a Top 6/Depth Defenseman for a while now. They searched the trade market but nothing came...as of yet.

 

Ottawa Senators GM has also said they will agree to a contract with Cody Ceci before the start of the season. 

 

If it's a bridge deal $2.5M - $3M is reportedly the price. 

 

If it's a long term deal $4M is reportedly the price.

 

NHL Trade Rumors On the: Vrbata/Coyotes, Red Wings NOT Rebuilding?!, Stars Goalie Situation...

• C.Morgan [Twitter]: Confirmed per NHL source the Arizona Coyotes contract with Radim Vrbata could allow Vrbata to receive up to $3M. The AAV salary is $1M however.

 

 • Matt Larkin: Dallas Stars GM has said for now they will have Antti Niemi and Kari Lehtonen in the net for the time being. Trade talks are quiet.

 

• The Hockey News: Ken Holland the Detroit Red Wings GM said his team never planned on rebuilding. They want to be a contending team every year that's why they added Neilsen/Vanek etc. While they have young players, they want to go for it all, not just watch all the young guns take on the pressure.
