NHL Trade Rumors On the: Marc-Andre Fleury Buzz, Ovechkin/WCH [NOT Injured]?!...

 NBC: James O’Brien wrote an article based on a Marc-Andre Fleury interview where he said "he'd like to win" the starter role back. While it will be a tough task to take the job away from a Stanley Cup Champion, it's still possible. But a trade is too.


Penguins GM said Fleury WILL NOT be traded before opening game, James O'Brien writes it's possible he may be traded at the trade deadline or maybe even if a team struggles early.


The Hockey News: Conflicting reports suggest Alexander Ovechkin COULD miss the World Cup of Hockey due to preseason training injury. Russian Hockey MG/Capitals has denied this report, and claims he doesn't know how anybody would know/see this. Although several media outlets have said Ovi has muscle damage, the gr8 is denying it. But then again he could be hiding the injury. Who knows. What do you think? 



NHL Trade Rumors On the: NY Isles to Nassau?!, Jiri Hudler Buzz...

• New York Post: Josh Kosman says sounds like there's is still a chance the New York Islanders do indeed make a return to the Nassau Coliseum. Nassau group would love to have them back per source.


The Barclays owner also gives a thumbs up on the idea per source.


• Canucks Now [Twitter]: Vancouver Canucks are very interested in Jiri Hudler. Few teams left in the sweepstakes. He could possibly decide this week.



NHL Trade Rumors On the: Canucks/Top 6 Fwd, PTO...

• TSN: VAN GM [Jim Benning] spoke on Radio recently regarding where the Canucks are in the process of adding a Top 6 Forward.


Benning said they have explored the trade & free agency market but the trade market came up empty. While they inquired on a few players, talks didn't really go anywhere. Now they are set to look at talking with a few [3/4] free agents who they recently have spoke with. The perfect FA Forward would be a 20 Goal scorer.


To conclude he said they are exploring any possible PTO's as well, and a trade is still a possibility.



NHL Trade Rumors On the: Bruins/Top 4 Def, Marchand...

• EPSN: Craig Custance writes Don Sweeney [BOS GM] is hoping to add a few pieces to the team in the near future. Jimmy Vesey would be great. 


Sweeney said himself the Bruins are in trade talks, but nothing has come to fruition. They'd like to add a defenseman via trade or free agency. B's will continue to work toward to improving the team.


Brad Marchand contract talks are also being discussed 24/7. Nothing close yet however. Was reported a while ago Marchand wanted $7M for 7YRS.



NHL Trade Rumors On the: Vesey + Offseason Plans, Quincey/Devils, Red Wings Buzz...

• North Jersey: Andrew Gross writes the New York Rangers/New Jersey Devils are two teams that have a good shot on signing Jimmy Vesey. Of course the Boston Bruins, Buffalo Sabres, and Toronto Maple Leafs are the frontrunners.


Devils will look to add to their roster this offseason. Rangers may subtract from their roster/stay the same this offseason.


• MLIVE: Ansar Khan writes it's a bit shocking Kyle Quincey has not signed with a team yet. The New Jersey Devils could be a likely landing spot for him as they have a spot open on the backend. While the Colorado Avalanche is likely Kyle's preferred team, don't think they will be offering him any time soon.


The Detroit Red Wings are interested in acquiring a Top 3 Defenseman. It would likely be via trade. Ansar crosses out James Wisniewski as an option as he would be a Top 4/6 Def. A trade to move out cap is a very real possibility as well.
