lewlewsports: Jack Eichel and Timo Meier Plus Extra San Jose

Spread the love

Who can actually afford Jack Eichel in a trade?

Adam Gretz of NBC Sports Network: Again, teams must have the $ 10 million AAV cap space and assets to lure Kevyn Adams and the Buffalo Sabers. It won’t be easy.

The New York Rangers have a chance to get a deal working, but does Buffalo want to send it to the state? Adam Fox and Mika Zibanejad, along with Igor Shesterkin, are two of her bigger priorities for the next season. However, you have the money and assets to make it happen.

Los Angeles has limited space but is swimming in prospects again. Don’t count out a team like her. The Anaheim Ducks also want to make a difference. You have the space and again (trade with the West is more attractive) it will take some work.

Vegas may have exhausted too much by now and no one seems sure of Minnesota, although Kirill Kaprizov could use a top center. The dead space from the buyouts of Ryan Suter and Zach Parise could be problematic. Right now Boston and Nashville are out but never say never.

Timo Meier, San Jose Sharks and more?

Sheng Peng from San Jose Hockey NOW: As for Timo Meier, San Jose killed this quickly.

“I’ve heard some rumors about Timo Meier and New Jersey,” said Friedman. “They were flatly denied to me. Someone said you are far away, don’t go this way. “

That’s no surprise. There was some chatter even before the free agency, but it wasn’t going anywhere. Meier’s $ 6 million contract for the next two seasons is seen as a major obstacle.

San Jose is a lot more interested in Christian Dvorak if they can get him out of Arizona. Arizona is no longer a division rival like the Central Division. Dvorak has four years left on his deal, which will bring him AAV 4.45 million. Calgary, Minnesota and Montreal have shown interest along with the New York Rangers.

Nothing is imminent, but it wouldn’t be long before something happened.
