What the Senators might be interested in if they move Duchene and/or Stone
Craig Button on a few teams that might be interested and who the Senators might be interested in.
Nashville Predators – Eeli Tolvanen and Dante Fabbro.
Vegas Golden Knights – Erik Brannstrom and Shea Theodore.
Boston Bruins – Urho Vaakanainen
Bruins interested in Simmonds
Would the Oilers be interested in Petan?
Petan may be the type of player the Edmonton Oilers could look at. He’s more of playmaker than a shooter, which is what the Oilers could use, but he could possibly help them next season.
Petan on the trade rumors
Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press: The sooner that Nic Petan could start fresh with a new team, the better it may be for his career. Petan hasn’t played since December 22nd.
When asked on the weekend if he’d like a fresh start, Petan said:
“It’s a tough answer. A fresh start is a little bit of a tough wording, I’d say. But always looking forward to the next opportunity,” Petan replied.
Petan knows there is trade speculation out there.
“I think those things are out of my control. Opportunities are everywhere in this league. Whatever happens, it is what it is,” he said.
