NHL Trade Rumors: Trouba for Ristolainen/Lindholm [BUZZ]?!, Contract | Krug/Duchene to Jets?! [Possible Offers] | Reider/Coyotes, Oilers | More
• Bob McKenzie [Via Today's Slapshot]: Last spring we heard Jacob Trouba was asking for $7M AAV and also didn't really want to stay in Winnipeg.
Now that the news became public we can confirm Trouba was looking to get traded during this past season. Seems as if he didn't like it there.
McKenzie however did not confirm on the $7M AAV price tag. He went to say however that the Anaheim Ducks and Buffalo Sabres are no where near close w/their respected RFA's [Hampus Lindholm & Rasmus Ristolainen]. He says they're stuck between comparable's like Seth Jones at around $5M-$6M and guys like Aaron Ekblad at $7M-$8M.
• Bob McKenzie [Via Today’s Slapshot]: McKenzie spoke on the Jacob Trouba Trade situation.
He said the Winnipeg Jets price is set at a similar player to Trouba's calibre except the returning player should be a LD.
He lists Rasmus Ristolainen and Hampus Lindholm as possible players who fit that bill. McKenzie also said the Buffalo Sabres/Anaheim Ducks would be very interested in Trouba but he doesn't think either teams would do a 1 for 1.
Teams like the Arizona Coyotes & New York Rangers will be interested but the question is will they have what it takes to acquire Trouba?!
NHL Trade Rumors On the: Jacob Trouba to Avalanche/Flyers; + Possible Trades...
• Winnipeg Sun: Reports that the Winnipeg Jets may not only want a LD in return for Jacob Trouba. They could make this into a BLOCKBUSTER.
Here are 5 teams however who may be willing to pay the price for Jacob Trouba:
Boston Bruins: While a potential deal may have to include Torey Krug. Bruins seem to think very high of Trouba, and were reportedly close to making an offer sheet for him earlier this offseason.
Detroit Red Wings: They've been looking to add a Top 4 Defenseman for a while now. Could this finally be it? Possible deal may include Danny DeKeyser or Brendan Smith.
Arizona Coyotes: Jacob Trouba could possibly play w/Oliver Ekman-Larsson. Possible deal would include one of their Prospects, but they don't have many LD young guns.
Colorado Avalanche: There have been rumors of the Avs possibly trading Matt Duchene for Jacob Trouba.
Philadelphia Flyers: They've got the pieces to acquire Jacob Trouba. Players like Ivan Provorov could move.
NHL Trade Rumors On the: Coyotes/Reider [Offer], Trouba Price Tag, Oilers/Bruins Buzz...
• Arizona Republic: Arizona Coyotes GM has said the Yotes have made a few "fair" contract offers to Tobias Reider, one of which included a $2.5M AAV for 2YRS. They also have put some LT options on the table as well.
Reider does love Arizona and it's fan base but his camp has declined all the offers up to date and ARZ GM has said there isn't anything close at the moment.
• Joe Haggerty of CSNNE: The Boston Bruins seem to still be interested in Jacob Trouba, after considering a offer sheet earlier this offseason.
Joe Haggerty writes a possible deal may include a player like Adam McQuaid or Brandon Carlo. Ryan Spooner along w/Draft Picks/Prospects will not be enough.
• Bob Stauffer: The Edmonton Oilers likely won't part ways w/Darnell Nurse or even Oscar Klefbom for Jacob Trouba.
• WPG Press: Speculation; the Winnipeg Jets may choose to keep Jacob Trouba and let him sit. This would be because Trouba trade value has significantly decreased after his public trade request which may bring in a undervalued return.
• D.Staple of EDM Journal: Trading a player like Griffin Reinhart or Brandon Davidson may not be a bad idea for the Edmonton Oilers as they have TONS of depth on LD. David Staples prediction for Jacob Trouba is either the Arizona Coyotes, Boston Bruins, OR Detroit Red Wings.
Both Oilers Coach and GM has seen lots of Trouba in the World Cup of Hockey.
• Gary Lawless [Twitter]: The Winnipeg Jets are NOT looking for any Draft Picks/Prospects for Jacob Trouba. Rather they are looking for a similar player to Trouba calibre but a LD.
