Changes To TSNs Trade Bait List

from Frank Seravalli of TSN,

The New York Rangers warned in last month’s letter to fans that this teardown might mean losing some “familiar faces.”

Mats Zuccarello may be one of those faces.

Zuccarello, the team’s leading scorer four of the last five seasons, has joined TSN’s Trade Bait board at No. 10....

Teams are also interested to see what Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman has up his sleeve before the deadline in a disappointing season. Chicago will almost certainly miss the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time since Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews’ rookie seasons in 2007-08. But that doesn’t necessarily preclude Bowman from tinkering.

The Latest On Erik Karlsson

via Bob McKenzie tweets,

The forecast of what’s most likely to happen in the relative short term, IMO, would rank as follows: 1. Karlsson not traded now, but more likely in the summer. 2. Karlsson traded by Monday with Bobby Ryan in the deal. 3. Karlsson traded by Monday but no Bobby Ryan in deal.

1. Karlsson is arguably NHL’s top defenceman and top five, if not top three, players in the game. 2. The Senators are actively/seriously engaged in talks to trade him. 3. Even if it doesn’t happen by Monday, it may very well occur in the off-season. In any case, unique situation.

McKenzie has more tweets on this, so check them out if interested.

A Six-Year Contract For Josh Bailey And The New York Islanders

from the New York Islanders,

The New York Islanders have agreed to terms with Josh Bailey on a six-year contract, ensuring that the All-Star forward will remain with the club that drafted him through the 2023-24 season. 

Bailey, 28, has established career highs in points (62) and assists (47) through 58 games this season. The Islanders' first-round pick (ninth overall) in the 2008 NHL Draft is second on the Islanders and tied for seventh in the league in assists this season. He is also third on the team in points.

Ottawa Should Trade Erik Karlsson Now

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,

Here’s the thing about trading Erik Karlsson: It’s never going to be easy.

Not now, in the rushed hours before Monday’s 3 p.m. ET deadline. Not in June at the entry draft, even with fewer cap constraints and more suitors. Not in July, when sign-and-trade scenarios could potentially come into play.

The only thing that changes over time with this type of franchise-altering decision is where the leverage lies. And for the next three-plus days the Ottawa Senators are in a more powerful position than they’re likely to find themselves afterwards.
