NHL Trade Rumors On the: Roundup; Rangers Depth?!, Russell to Devils, Pavelec Deal, More...

• NHL.COM: [Website]: Dan Rosen of NHL.com listed some Trade/Free Agency Rumors + Opinions:

 

1. Johnny Gaudreau and the Calgary Flames should come to terms on a deal BEFORE the start of the 16-17 NHL Season. Possible Deal; $7M AAV + 7YRS.

 

2. The New York Rangers may possibly make a move in the next coming weeks. They've got tons of Forward Depth. 

 

3. The New Jersey Devils are a good landing spot for Kris Russell. Dennis Seideberg/Tomas Fleischman playing in the #WCH2016 helps their status on potential NHL contracts.

 

4. If he was the GM of the Winnipeg Jets then the 1st Goalie to be traded would be Ondrej Pavelec.

 

5. Teams will be eyeing players like David Jones & Kyle Quincey. They'll probably be snagged soon enough.

 

NHL Trade Rumors On the: Henrik & Daniel to Retire/UFA?!... 

 Sportsnet: The Sedin Twins both have 2YRS left on their respective contracts, w/$7M AAV on each. Some may say they will be retiring after the end of this contract but they've said they will likely take another contract [1YR] before retiring. That could happen via Free Agency or w/Vancouver Canucks.

 

NHL Trade Rumors On the: Fleischmann [8 Teams], Goalie Equipment [Smaller], Flyers Buzz...

• NHL Radio: Bill Daly has confirmed NHL Goaltenders will have smaller pants that could added to players gear as soon as October 12th of this year. While it won't affect safety, it could help introduce more scoring to the game of hockey.

 

NHL is working at shrinking other goaltending equipment. Most notably pads.

 

• News 1130: Tomas Fleischmann agent has confirmed his client has about 8 clubs showing interest. He didn't say who those teams are however.

 

• Courier-Post: Philadelphia Flyers GM has said he will wait and see how both of his goaltenders [Steve Mason & Michael Neuvrith] perform this season, before making any moves/contract offers. 

 

Flyers are reportedly eyeing a few PTO Forwards. 

 

NHL Trade Rumors On the: Bruins/Top 6, Tanguay & Habs, Elias/UFA Buzz, Sharks...

• K.Kurz: Source; the San Jose Sharks likely don't have anyone lined up on a PTO.

 

• CSNNE: Boston Bruins still looking at adding a Top 4 Offensive Defenseman. That will likely come via trade. As of now they have David Krejci & Ryan Spooner who could be their possible trade baits.

 

Bruins Cam Neely has said his GM is still looking at adding a Def with their remaining salary cap.

 

• La Presse: Alex Tanguay does in fact want to sign w/Montreal Canadiens, but it's come to our attention the Habs aren't exactly interested in bringing Tanguay on board. While Alex has several PTO offers, he's waiting for a contract. 

 

• New Jersey.com: Patrick Elias who is a Free Agent at the moment, has made it clear he would ONLY be signing a new deal with the New Jersey Devils if he decided to stay in the NHL. News came out recently there is no timeline on a new contract, it's up to Elias if/when he wants to sign.

 

New Jersey Devils aren't interested in signing anyone on a PTO currently.

 

More to come. Stay tuned. Get more rumors on Twitter @TheHockeyPress & on Facebook: @TheHockeyPress   OR http://www.thehockeypress.ca.
