NHL Trade Rumors On the: Goalie Equipment [17-18], Lehtonen/Niemi & Sharp Buzz...

 Winnipeg Free Press: Mathieu Schneider who is working towards shrinking goalie equipment spoke recently and said whoever thought the equipment change would be implemented by this season will be disappointed. The Costs/Amount of time it takes to change the equipment will set the expected date to 2017-2018 season.

 

 Dallas News [Mike Heika]: The Dallas Stars will look to upgrade their goaltending this season. In the past Stars GM has said though they will go into this season w/Lehtonen and Niemi again, but that isn't to say they won't be interested in an upgrade. As for Patrick Sharp. Well depending on his season, will factor in if Dallas wants to sign him or not.

 

NHL Trade Rumors On the: Rangers BIG Move?!...

• NBC.com [James O'Brien]: After adding the likes of Brandon Pirri, Jimmy Vesey and other quality forwards. James writes the New York Rangers could be up to something big.

 

He notes Elliotte Friedman as he said recrntly the Rangers are in the mix in a lot of things. Could this mean they will trade Rick Nash for a player like Kevin Shattenkirk tomorrow? Well this is where O'Brien says NYR will be patient and won't rush into anything just yet. 

 

NHL Trade Rumors On the: Marleau to LA Kings/Ducks/Rangers?!, Bishop to Flames/Stars?!, Sharks & Lightning...

 Pro Hockey Talk: Patrick Marleau may be entering the last year with the San Jose Sharks. With SJS have more younger options, they won't be willing to pay Marleau anywhere near his old $6.6M contract. Sharks have other players to sign a Marleau may not be too high on that priority list. 

 

Trade Rumors came out last season which had him going to the Ducks, Rangers, or Kings. Is that something that will take place again this offseason. 

 

 Pro Hockey Talk: The Tampa Bay Lightning are in a bit of a cap squeeze. They have to sign Ben Bishop, Jonathan Drouin, Ondrej Palat, and Tyler Johnson next year. Nikita Kucherov also need a contract this offseason. All that and they've already spent $55M in cap.

 

Mike Halford writes, due to this cap dilemma Ben Bishop may be the odd man out. With Andre Vasilevskiy on the rise. TB may not meed Bishop services anymore. At least not for the price tag he'll ask for next season.

 

If Lightning GM decides to move Bishop at the Deadline or his rights at the Draft, Halford writes the Dallas Stars & Calgary could be possible landing spots for Big Ben.

 

NHL Trade Rumors On the: Red Wings & Top 4/Goalie, Fowler

• Mike Halford of NBC: The Detroit Red Wings are looking to add on the backend. They have Petr Mrazek as their starting net minder at the moment but they'd like to move past Jimmy Howard as their backup and clear up some cap. They've also reportedly been interested in Cam Fowler, and have had discussions w/Anaheim Ducks about him. Let's see how this all plays out for the Red Wings.
