Notes on the Flames, Penguins, Predators, Canadiens, Rangers, and Red Wings
Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet: The Calgary Flames are happy with the play of some of their young guys, but not so much with some of their top players. If the Flames feel Elias Lindholm is a centerman, they will look to add a right winger with the extra cap space they have after the Michael Frolik trade.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are looking for a forward.
The Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Vegas Golden Knights and Washington Capitals showed some interest in Justin Williams before he signed with the Carolina Hurricanes.
The Montreal Canadiens had some interest in Vancouver Canucks Sven Baertschi. Forward Dale Weise would have had to be involved. It didn’t work out. The Canadiens didn’t approach the Canucks with the idea. GM Marc Bergevin doesn’t want to move his prospects.
Don’t expect any immediate movement of New York Rangers goaltender Alexandar Georgiev after the Igor Shestyorkin recall.
The Detroit Red Wings would love to add more draft picks and/or prospects.
