Five potential landing spots for Kuemper
Pierre LeBrun: Believe there are five teams that have a varying interest in Arizona Coyotes goaltender Darcy Kuemper who has one year left at $4.5 million – Colorado Avalanche, Philadelphia Flyers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Carolina Hurricanes and the Edmonton Oilers.
The Oilers wouldn’t want to give up much for a rental player but Kuemper may be worth it. They could quickly try to sign him to a contract extension.
Avs and Grubauer trying to shrink the gap
Pierre LeBrun: The Colorado Avalanche and Philipp Grubauer were to talk again today. They are trying to bridge the gap as Grubauer would love to stay in Colorado.
Leafs in on Ho-Sang
David Pagnotta: The Toronto Maple Leafs could be one of the teams interested in Josh Ho-Sang who will finally get a fresh start. It would likely be a two-way deal.
Canucks still trying to move Schmidt
Would the Boston Bruins or New York Islanders make sense?
Bruins and Preds interested in Getzlaf
David Pagnotta: Had been hearing the Bruins were interested in Getzlaf as well.
Hoffman can’t wait long for the Blues
Pierre LeBrun: The St. Louis Blues remain interested in re-signing Mike Hoffman but they would need to move our Vladimir Tarasenko‘s contract first. Not sure how long Hoffman could wait as he’ll be getting offers tomorrow.
