NHL Trade Rumors On the: Monahan Contract, Gaudreau Buzz [VC?!]...

 Elliotte Friedman: Although Johnny Gaudreau has said he will NOT be negotiating a new contract with the Calgary Flames during the World Cup of Hockey which he will be participating in with the help of insurances, Johnny Hockey has said he wants to be in Calgary which makes Friedman write Gaudreau will probably get a deal done.


Elliotte also lists Jared Bednar as a possibility for the Colorado Avalanche. He is currently the Coach of the Blue Jackets AHL Team.


• Hockey Twitter: With Sean Monahan signing a GIANT 7YRS | $6.3M AAV Contract. One would wonder [Craig Custance] this could be a Jonathan Toews/Patrick Kane sort of thing where Johnny Gaudreau signs a similar deal in the near future. All reports suggest Gaudreau deal to be around $7M AAV.


NHL Trade Rumors On the: Bishop to Dallas Stars,  Halak Deal Buzz, Islanders...

• Brian Compton of NHL: A Jaroslav Halak trade is still a very real possibility. It could happen during the World Cup of Hockey or maybe even at training camp. New York Islanders are COMPLETELY fine with Thomas Greiss and JF Berube in net.


 Jason Brough of NBC: The Dallas Stars know their goaltending isn't a strong point of their team. They currently have Kari Lehtonen & Antti Niemi in net. Jason writes reports suggest Stars GM will see how the tandem performs during the season then will act on a decision.


Ben Bishop could be an option for the Stars. It's been reported Bishop is a target for DAL but the Tampa Bay Lightning aren't just gonna give Big Ben away until they know they have a capable Plan B.


NHL Trade Rumors On the: World Cup of Hockey, Las Vegas Name [Plan B]...

TSN [WCH2016]: The Player Jerseys and Game Pucks will have sensors to track. Jerseys will also have SAP ad on the shoulder. Gary Bettman has said they will gauge fan response. Boards will also have digital ads. Goalie Equipment was also mentioned in a Sportsnet article. While the new goalie equipment won't be featured in the World Cup of Hockey, it could be added into the NHL in the 17-18 season.


 The Sin Bin: Las Vegas group recently said "Night Hawks" is a name being discussed. However it's reported that is a "Plan B" name. Their Plan A name does included Hawks or Nights.


NHL Trade Rumors On the: Shattenkirk/Red Wings, Edler Market Buzz...

Dan Rosen of NHL:  The Detroit Red Wings still are looking to add a Top 3 Offensive Defenseman to improve their PP/team. With depth at the forward positions, the Red Wings could go after Kevin Shattenkirk in September and offer up Guatav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar, or Anthony Mantha. The price tag for Shattenkirk is likely a Blue Chip prospect plus a solid forward. Knowing DET does NOT want to give up Dylan Larkin there is a small chance this deal happens. 



• Grady S [Twitter]: The Vancouver Canucks did consider trading Alexander Edler but with Hamhuis leaving, and the lack of depth, it was unlikely he got moved. If however he performs well this season than a trade is "likely".


NHL Trade Rumors On the: Players @Vesey Meetings, Coyotes; Reider/Hanzal...


• ARZ GM: Tobias Reider will soon become a Free Agent, while there is no new contract in place, John Chayka the GM of the Yotes has said he wants to sign Reider as soon as possible. He's a big part of the team, and bring a lot of value. This would be the best short term and long term place for him. Not to mention the coaches/players love him.


He also said while Martin Hanzal and ARZ have had their differences and aren't close to a new deal, that won't make them shop on the trade market. They're confident Hanzal will sign.


• THP: FULL LIST; Who showed up to Jimmy Vesey meetings OR have talked with him [Players]:


Patrick Kane for the Chicago Blackhawks

Kyle Palmieri & Cory Schneider for the New Jersey Devils.

Kevin Hayes has talked w/Vesey for a while.

Boston Bruins Players.

Sidney Crosby for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
