Tofolli heading to free agency
TSN Radio Vancouver: Rick Dhaliwal on TSN 1040 on Toffoli: “He’s going to hit the market. Looks like the money can’t be freed up for . We keep hearing they’re negotiating with Markstrom but not getting same feedback on Toffoli or Tanev. I’ve been told he’s going to hit the market & he just can’t wait forever.”
Iain MacIntyre: “Don’t blame Tyler Toffoli for resigning himself to UFA market. But uncertainty over Ekman-Larsson trade and Markstrom contract has paused Canucks on others.
Also think it’s possible if Markstrom leaves, Canucks circle back on Toffoli.”
He’d be perfect if the Bruins could get him signed for around $5 million.
What Anderson may have cost the Bruins
Joe Haggerty: The Boston Bruins could have used a player like Josh Anderson – “big, skilled and physical.” The Canadiens gave up Max Domi and third. Jake DeBrusk and a third would be a comparable for the Bruins. Even though he has some shoulder issues, would do that deal for the Bruins.
Three or four teams interested in Barrie
The Oilers are interested but on a short-term deal.
The Florida Panthers might also be interested in Barrie.
Barrie is more comfortable on a Western Conference team.
A Wennberg buyout out more likely now
Mark Scheig: After trading Josh Anderson for Max Domi today, it now seems more likely that Alex Wennberg will be bought out.
