Rumour Report: Trade talks continue on key players

Where will the top remaining trade targets end up?

  • Marco Scandella - Becomes the top target for a lot of teams following the Hamonic trade. The Canadiens seem like a frontrunner here, but the Islanders and Bruins are among the teams rumoured to have interest as well.
  • James Neal - The Kings are after a winger and Neal's name is near the top of their list. 
  • Evander Kane - Another Kings target, but the Islanders, Ducks, Wild and Predators have shown interest. The Canucks are a darkhorse - they've looked at it, but many believe they're not highly motivated to make that deal.
  • Chris Tanev - Seems quiet on this front. The Leafs and Stars are interested, but they may wait to see if the price comes down.
  • Dion Phaneuf - Not a frontburner issue for the Sens, but the list of teams rumoured to have interest includes the Kings, Stars, Sharks, Canadiens and Oilers.
  • Alex Galchenyuk - Extension talks may have been reinvigorated by the prospect of teammate Alex Radulov heading to free agency. The Penguins, Rangers, Stars, Devils, Islanders and Avalanche are rumoured suitors.

  • Marc Methot - Toronto, Dallas and Montreal have been linked to Methot in recent days.
  • Other notes: the Jets plan on taking a swing at the free agent goalie market next week and many believe Brian Elliott is on their list; Flyers plan in the same, rumours suggest they may go after Jonathan Bernier; a lot of rumour buzz around Claude Giroux this past weekend, but appears there isn't much to it; Brayden Schenn is a player the Blues have coveted for over a year, interesting a deal finally came together...he was at 1% trade odds on the rumour board; Dallas are ready to get rid of one of their goalies (Kari Lehtonen or Antti Niemi) via trade or buyout.
