On Justin Williams …
Darren Dreger: No fewer than 10 teams have been in contact with Justin Williams including several top level teams.
Chris Nichols: Darren Dreger on the Dallas Stars: “They’re not going to stop if they land Justin Williams. I think they could add a couple – maybe even three – forwards.”
Platinum Seat Ghosts: Dreger: “The Dallas Stars would move heaven and earth to bring (Justin Williams) into the mix. They’re in win-now mode.”
David Pagnotta: The Stars are of the teams interested in Williams and the Capitals are not out of the equation either.
Dennis Bernstein: The Los Angeles Kings are among the teams that have contacted Justin Williams.
John Hoven: Williams to the Kings would make Anze Kopitar happy but he’s the wrong fit right now for the Kings – his age and potentially Joe Thornton at center.
Arthur Staple: Williams agent said that the New York Islanders are one of the teams that has reached out. Long list of teams that are interested.
Chuck Gormley: Could see the Toronto Maple Leafs being a landing spot for Williams. It might be the perfect last stop for him.
Dave Isaac: The Philadelphia Flyers are one of the teams that is interested in Williams. [Isaac] thinks the Flyers should have signed him before the Capitals did two years ago.
Joe Smith: The Tampa Bay Lightning are one of the teams interested in Williams. He would fit nicely on the their wing, but he’ll have lots of options to consider.
