Saturday Headlines: finding a home for Hamonic

Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman and Damien Cox issued the usual cornucopia of scoops during their Saturday Headlines segment, and this note about Travis Hamonic's trade status, from Sportsnet's Jeff Simmons, is intriguing:

Hamonic’s preference is to play for one of the teams in Western Canada, so the Islanders have a limited market to work with. According to Friedman, teams such as the Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings, and Anaheim Ducks contacted the Islanders but were told they were not a “fit.”

"A lot of people would not be surprised if this turned into a three-way trade," Friedman said Saturday.

Here's the segment:

Hamonic wants to go to Western Canada, of course.

Also: Damien Cox discussed Eric Staal's and Cam Ward's contract negotiations, he stated that Dainus Zubrus will sign with San Jose, and Friedman says that the Montreal Canadiens are "trying to do some things to improve their team."

Friedman also states that Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto are trying to get a trio of outdoor games to be held during the NHL's 2016-17 (centennial) season, in November, December and January, respectively.
