Teams starting to call on Iafallo
TSN: The Los Angeles Kings and Alex Iafallo have been trying to work out a contract extension according to Frank Seravalli but haven’t reached a deal yet. Teams have started calling Kings GM Rob Blake to see if he’s available or not.
“These two sides are going to continue to try and hammer away at an extension. If that doesn’t get done, it certainly seems like Iafallo could be one of those guys on the move before Monday.”

But the trend is heavy with Marc Bergevin. He’s looking for former Stanley Cup winners. And that, I think it is still a priority for him. Our eyes will turn to the Blues. Is it Tyler Bozak, Vince Dunn, who makes less than $ 2 million a year?
“Suddenly he can work a little more. His hands are much less tied than a few days ago. ”
