NHL Rumors: Panthers, Coyotes, Habs, Preds, Lightning, Bruins, Canucks, Flames, Sens, Isles and Wings

The Tampa Bay Lightning could put a package for both Rick Nash and Ryan McDonagh.

On the Florida Panthers, Arizona Coyotes, Montreal Canadiens, Nashville Predators, Tampa Bay Lightning, Boston Bruins, Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames, Ottawa Senators, NY Islanders, and the Detroit Red Wings …

Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet: Would be interesting if the Florida Panthers snuck in on Max Pacioretty.

The Arizona Coyotes are willing to give Max Domi a fresh start if they get a fair offer for him. It could happen at the draft if it doesn’t happen at the deadline. The Canadiens could look at Domi.

Center Tomas Plekanec would like to remain in Montreal, and it’s possible there is a contract extension there. GM Marc Bergevin could get a trade offer he likes.

Have heard that the Tampa Bay Lightning, Boston Bruins, and Toronto Maple Leafs have inquired about Oilers Patrick Maroon. It doesn’t make sense for the Maple Leafs at the moment, and some don’t think the Bruins either. Joe Haggerty did report that he heard the Bruins were interested,

The Nashville Predators are all in on Rick Nash. Are they able to offer up more than anyone else though? Their first-round pick would be low, and the Rangers could try to pry out Dante Fabbro or Eeli Tolvanen.

The Tampa Bay Lightning could package players, prospects, and draft picks for both Nash and Ryan McDonagh.

The Bruins are interested in McDonagh.

Very unlikely that the Canucks want to trade defenseman Chris Tanev. wonders if they should consider as the abuse he takes could affect his value at some point.

The Calgary Flames have been scouting the Senators lately. wondered if they were watching Zack Smith, but was told “out to lunch on that one.”

The Senators would prefer to keep Derick Brassard, but teams are calling. The Pittsburgh Penguins have been looking, as well as the San Jose Sharks.

The Buffalo Sabres and Philadelphia Flyers could have some brewing.

It’s possible the NY Islanders could have two lottery picks. If the Flames were in a secure playoff spot, Islanders GM Garth Snow might be more willing to move it.

The Detroit Red Wings are looking to give Xavier Ouellet a fresh start.
