The Talk At The NHL Draft

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet,

Some quickie gossip from Dallas, home of your 2018 NHL Draft:

- There is word that a number of teams are asking St. Louis if there’s any reason they would consider moving Colton Parayko. One of them has to be Edmonton, picking 10th.

My guess is the price would be enormous. He’s a terrific player on an excellent contract. Maybe they feel having Alex Pietrangelo there gives the Blues reason to think about it.

- Carolina is another to watch. It will be a surprise if the Hurricanes deal the second-overall selection. However, all eyes are on Jeff Skinner (add the Islanders and Penguins to the list of potential options), Justin Faulk (Detroit with interest) and Elias Lindholm. I’m not convinced the latter is getting dealt, but the team and agent are grinding each other over his next contract.

- It might mean nothing — or maybe it means everything — but Wayne Simmonds’ trade list was due this week.
