On the Colorado Avalanche, Columbus Blue Jackets, Nashville Predators, Pittsburgh Penguins, Detroit Red Wings, Vegas Golden Knights, Arizona Coyotes, and Toronto Maple Leafs …
The Columbus Blue Jackets have the pieces to get a deal done quickly with the Avalanche. The Blue Jackets felt they were close to a deal earlier, but Avs GM Joe Sakic didn’t think it was enough.
Duchene wouldn’t mind ending up with the Nashville Predators. Some players heard rumors of a Duchene for P.K. Subban rumor this offseason. With Ryan Ellis out for a couple of months, the Predators aren’t trading a top four defenseman. Not a surprise if the Avs inquired about the Predators top four defensemen.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are back looking for a center.
Detroit Red Wings center Riley Sheahan‘s name may be talked about, but there is nothing specific tying him to the Penguins as of now.
The Vegas Golden Knights have 11 defensemen on one-way contracts.
Belief is the Red Wings offered Andreas Athanasiou a two-year deal at just under $2 million, and that a one-year offer is significantly lower.
thinks the Arizona Coyotes are one of the teams that talked to Jaromir Jagr.
On Andrei Markov …
Igor Eronko: When asked if he regrets not being able to play in 1000 NHL games, defenseman Andrei Markov responded: ‘Why do you think I’m done there?’
