Barkov, Canadiens, Flyers, Canucks, More


In today’s summary of the NHL rumor, there is speculation about the Florida Panthers moving Aleksander Barkov, what the Montreal Canadiens will do with Tomas Tatar, and will the Philadelphia Flyers trying to re-sign Justin Braun? Finally, what happened in Vancouver between the Canucks and Nikolay Goldobin?

Could the Panthers trade Barkov?

In a recent bag section of the New York Post, Larry Brooks spoke about the idea that the Florida Panthers could use Aleksander Barkov as a trading chip and the chances that the New York Rangers could acquire it. The idea here is that there is some truth in rumors that the Panthers may want to make changes and cut wages.

Brooks says Adam Fox and Kaapo Kakko, as well as players with no-trade clauses (Mika Zibanejad, Artemi Panarin and Chris Kreider) are untouchable for the Rangers. Everything else would be on the table for a player like Barkov who signed until 2022.

Barkov has a no-travel clause that comes in after this season and a modified non-trade in 2021-2022, so if the Panthers haven’t done something soon, he should be prepared to give up on leaving the organization.

What’s going on with Tomas Tatar?

Pat Hickey of The Montreal Gazette has reviewed the likelihood that the Montreal Canadiens will trade Tomas Tatar, Brendan Gallagher or Phillip Danault and noted that keeping them together should be a priority out of season.

The three players are expected to become unrestricted free agents next summer and all having worked well together, the team should consider extensions. Tatar sounds like he wants to stay too, crediting Gallagher and Danault for his success since joining the Canadiens and said:

“If you look at different players with different teams, I realize more and more how important it is to adapt to a team and a system. I have probably had the time of my life since my arrival in Montreal. “

The Tatar was mentioned in trade rumors as of the cut-off date, but the belief is that moving the future 30-year-old will not attract Canadians much in return. Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin could probably strike a three- or four-year deal with the winger for about $ 5.5 million a season.

Leaflets to sign Braun again?

The Flyers defeated the writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer / DN, Sam Carchidi Tweeted that the Flyers ’interest in a new signing for defender Justin Braun could depend solely on their ability to swap defender Shayne Gostisbehere.

There has been talk of moving Gostisbehere on the wing and it’s not unknown when players like Dustin Byfuglien and Brent Burns have already made the decision, but the idea would be seen as not being a long-term option for the Flyers.

Canucks on Goldobin

Knowing that there was a chance he could return to Russia, Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning said he had touched base with agent Nikolay Goldobin. Goldobin will play next season and the following year with KHL CSKA.

“We tried to move it to the (commercial) deadline, but it didn’t work,” said Benning on Monday. He added: “We have tried to work with him and give him chances, but in the past year, other people in our organization have moved on from him and we have young players who will also need to an opportunity. “
