from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
• Asked a couple of GMs if they’d heard Evander Kane is available. Both said no. Is it possible the relationship is strained? Yes sir, but trading a 20-year-old 30-goal scorer is risky business. Both GMs did say they would absolutely be interested if Kane got to the market.
• There is no doubt Zach Parise’s first choice is to stay. However, when he talked about his future, he was two days removed from the disappointment of a Stanley Cup defeat. In that time, you’re understandably emotional. Before making his final decision, he’s going to need assurances the Devils’ financial situation will not prevent them from being a serious contender. He badly wants to win, and, if New Jersey can’t convince him that’s possible, how can he remain?
• Jarret Stoll really impressed with his post-season performance. He’s a UFA, but one team that likes him assumes he stays in LA and doesn’t make it to the market.
