2021 DRAFT TRACKER

Many Believe Jaden Schwartz is Kraken Bound

There is an overwhelming feeling out there that the Jaden Schwartz and the Kraken were very close to getting a deal done, but the Kraken also wanted to get d-man Dunn from St Louis and there are no rules stating you had to sign a UFA before you picked a player off the list. Schwartz appears very likely to sign in Seattle Wednesday.

Marc Staal Back to the Red Wings. 1year

Not surprising. Yzerman truly loves Staal. Could brother Eric end up in Motown or back in Carolina?

Teams growing frustrated with the Tarasenko Situation.

One team described the price as a “moving target” while the Flyers got tired of the back and forth and turned to Columbus where the Voracek for Atkinson deal came together easily and quickly.

Carolina Working Hard to Sign Hamilton. Other teams in Play

The Hurricanes want to sign Dougie Hamilton before Wednesday, but I do ge the impression that there are a few NHL teams who are willing to go higher than the Canes are willing to go. Keep your eye on NJ, Toronto, Montreal, and Dallas.

Eichel Update.

The Sabres continue to not get any traction on Eichel. Teams are not willing to pay the premium asking price until they know he is healthy...and even then some say the price is just prohibitive.. The issue the Sabres face now is it gets harder to get more once teams start moving on...

Montreal Looking to Make a Major Move TODAY.

There is some talk that the Habs are in on NATE SCHMIDT. They also have kicked tires on Eichel and Seth Jones...but both are MEGA long shots. A source in Montreal tells me, "We would very much like to get some biz done today or tonight." Florida is also in on Nate.

Kraken Willing to Part with #2 pick For Eichel. Also, Next Year's #1 +?

I am hearing Seattle has had discussions with Buffalo about Eichel. They are willing to give the #2 pick to get this done. Not enough though. The Question is what else do the Kraken have? If Seattle were to offer up THIS year's first-round pick and NEXT year's first-round pick, along with Goalie Vitek Vanecek for Eichel, should the Sabres take the deal? Should Seattle make that offer?
Source: Eklund
Discuss this Rumor

Buffalo Not Getting Traction on Eichel.

Given the current health situation with Jack Eichel, the Sabres aren't getting any team to step up and pay their asking price. There are teams ready to pay quite a lot, but I don't see a deal getting done until either the Sabres come down off their current asking price OR Eichel gets a clear bill of health.

Hawks and Jackets at Impasse over Seth Jones

Oilers and Zach Hyman Have a Deal. Will Toronto Match?

Edmonton and Toronto are mastering in "miscalculations" today. The Oilers losing Larsson yesterday was a major blow on all levels to an organization that wants to continue to step forward. Edmonton will need to no find at least 2 top 4 D-men to do that now. Zach Hyman is still a great fit for the Oilers for sure, and Toronto allowed Hyman to test the market and talk to Edmonton. Hyman wants to play with his buds on the Leafs and the belief is he will give Toronto one last chance...however once a player feels appreciated, like Edmonton has made Hyman feel, things get dicey.
