Quick hits on the Panthers, Senators, Maple Leafs, Kings and Canucks
The Ottawa Senators have basically considered any defenseman that is believed to be available. They may consider adding a sweetener to move Nikita Zaitsev but have a limit on what they would do.
Ryan Reynolds has met with two potential ownership groups for the Senators.
Arizona Coyotes defenseman Conor Timmins, whose condition stint ends today, makes sense for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Sault Ste. Marie connection and a low cap hit.
Spitballing – the Los Angeles Kings taking a run at Patrick Kane. They have the draft picks and prospects to move.
Believe the Vancouver Canucks have talked to some potential coaches.
