Forsberg not going anywhere this year
Elliotte Friedman: Don’t expect the Nashville Predators to sign Filip Forsberg to sign a contract extension today. Talk is the Predators are committed to not trading him and keeping though the season.
Robby Stanley: “Also, for those of you who think that Forsberg would entertain signing a contract here for anything less than 8 years, I think you’re living in fantasyland. I could be wrong. But it makes absolutely zero sense for him to do that. He will get 7 from someone on the market.”
Copp will be moved
Could the Oilers be interested in Allen?
Could John Gibson be available?
Capitals interested in a college free agent
Tarik El-Bashir: Have heard the Washington Capitals have interest in college free agent goaltender Clay Stevenson. He’s been playing at Dartmouth with a 2.70 GAA and a .922 SV%. There are other teams interested in the B.C. native.
The Maple Leafs could have a couple roster spots and cap space open up
If both Kase and Rasmus Sandin are going to miss a significant amount of time, they could be placed on the LTIR and would open up roster spots.
Chris Johnston: Talk is that defenseman Rasmus Sandin is weeks away and not days. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he’s up on the LTIR.
Bob McKenzie: It’s doubtful that someone claims Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Petr Mrazek off waivers but it’s still a possibility. If Harri Sateri isn’t claimed he’s still at least a week away from returning. Goaltender Jack Campbell is a week or more away, Defenseman Jake Muzzin is getting closer.
