NHL Rumors: Stone, Rangers, Hurricanes, Sabres, Islanders, and the Bruins

Could the Boston Bruins be interested in LA Kings forward Tyler Toffoli?
On Mark Stone

John Rodenburg: “The TSN TV boys suggesting Jets and Flames probably out on Stone, leaving Vegas, Boston, Nashville and the Islanders in all liklehood for Stone”

On the New York Rangers

Darren Dreger: “NYR getting calls on Lemieux pretty much as soon as he was acquired. Likely moves on the Rangers blue line with McQuaid and Claesson expected to go.”

On the Carolina Hurricanes

Pierre LeBrun: “Again, not sure Carolina really wants to move Ferland but teams are calling… we mentioned Vegas interest in Ferland… but you can also add Toronto, Winnipeg and Calgary as teams that have showed interest today. Could be 11th-hour decision for ‘Canes”

On the Buffalo Sabres

Lance Lysowski: “Rasmus Ristolainen is on the ice. Still can’t imagine he gets moved.”

On the New York Islanders

Andrew Gross: Barry Trotz told players before practice: “Everybody who is here right now deserves the opportunity to stay…I don’t anticipate anything. If this is the group we’re going with, we’re fine with it.”

On the Boston Bruins

Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston: Source confirms that the Bruins have shown some interest in Kings Tyler Toffoli.

The Bruins may not be looking to spend a first-round pick on rental, but Toffoli has a year left on his deal at a $4.6 million salary cap hit.

The right winger is having a down year with 12 goals and 27 points in 61 games.

Over the past four seasons he’s averaged 24 goals and 48 points.

Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston: Top six forward options for the Bruins include Mark Stone, Artemi Panarin and Wayne Simmonds. All of those players will coast a first round pick plus more and may be priced out of the Bruins range.

Micheal Ferland may not be available anymore.

Florida Panther Mike Hoffman may be available but comes with some baggage.

Other potential names might come up are Jason Zucker, Alex Chiasson and Chris Kreider.
