NHL Rumors: Artemi Panarin, Semyon Varlamov, Robin Lehner, and Petr Mrazek
Some term and numbers that may have been offered for Artemi Panarin
Rangers don’t think they are out on Panarin, Avs made an offer and the latest estimates

Bob McKenzie: Get the sense that the New York Rangers feel that they are still in the hunt for Artemi Panarin.

David Pagnotta: Believe that the Islanders, Panthers and maybe the Rangers are finalists for Panarin.

If it’s the Islanders, it could be at seven years at over $12 million per.

If it’s the Panthers, it could be at seven years at around $10-$11 million AAV.

Adrian Dater: Had been hearing the Colorado Avalanche had offered six years and $70 million for Panarin

  • Elliotte Friedman: Had heard the Avs had offered $12.5 million per, going more money with the shorter term.
  • Adrian Dater: Have been told it would have been $12.5 on a shorter-term. Panarin will be 28-years old in October and the Avs are a little leery. Term is a worry for the Avs.
  • Elliotte Friedman: If Panarin was willing to go four or five years it would have been $12.5, but he is going to get term and the money. It was a good attempt by the Avs.
Lehner turns down a two-year deal from Islanders

Andy Strickland: It’s believed that Robin Lehner turned down a two-year deal at around $5 million per from the New York Islanders.

Islanders and Hurricanes goalie update

Pierre LeBrun: With Semyon Varlamov potentially signing with Islanders, have been hearing the Carolina Hurricanes are focusing on Petr Mrazek and Robin Lehner.

Arthur Staple: “The appeal of Varlamov for — likely cheaper than Lehner’s ask and he’s tight with Ilya Sorokin. Would provide a bridge to Sorokin arriving next spring and a mentor of sorts. And still plenty of room for Panarin at 12m per, plus a 3C — someone like Colin Wilson, perhaps.”
