NHL Trade Rumors: Stepan to Minnesota Wild/Montreal Canadiens | Shattenkirk for Eberle [h4] | Bishop for Sharp [h2] | Fowler/Sabres, Stamkos Rights | Bruins, Leafs, Blue Jackets, Flyers | and More
• The Hockey Press:
- Hearing the Dallas Stars & Tampa Bay Lightning are talking on a possible Ben Bishop trade. TB wants to make cap space fast for Steven Stamkos.
- Blues GM believes his price for Shattenkirk may be too high, but we can confirm the Edmonton Oilers are willing to go higher. They got the finn, and now feel more comfortable trading Ryan Nugent-Hopkins or Jordan Eberle. The price the Blues were asking from the Oilers was Taylor Hall. Wouldn't be surprised if the Oilers offer Jordan Eberle tomorrow for Shattenkirk.
- Bruins are still very much in these Shattenkirk trades. The current offer BOS offered seems like a Plan B for STL.
- Wouldn't be surprised if the Maple Leafs acquire another 3rd/2nd Round Pick this Draft. Bozak/Lupul/Bernier are on the Block.
- Cam Fowler is still a big priority for the Buffalo Sabres. The Montreal Canadiens have died down a bit bit the Sabres are still big on him and working towards on offer. Would include Tyler Ennis.
- Not a guarantee here, but there has been chatter on if the Dallas Stars could trade Patrick Sharks to acquire a goaltender or defenseman. We've heard if Sharp moves the Lightning/Flyers will be interested. Flyers have Sanheim who they are looking to move.
NHL Trade Rumors On the: Stamkos, Lucic, Jones...
• Rumor Roundup:
- Vancouver Canucks & Edmonton Oilers will be talking w/Milan Lucic today. They could also trade for his rights. Don't count out the New York Rangers on Lucic though. He is just what they want.
- Steven Stamkos rights will be traded by tomorrow. If Bishop doesn't get moved there is no Stamkos sign in TB. Red Wings/Sabres/Habs are pushing for his rights.
- Seth Jones & Jacob Trouba will receive offer sheets but neither GM's are worried.
NHL Trade Rumors On the: Derek Stepan to Minnesota Wild/Montreal Canadiens...
• The Hockey Press: Several team are calling the New York Rangers on Derek Stepan. He is a young solid C who can get the job done. Hearing the Rangers want a defenseman in return. This has been brewing for a while now. Rangers are in heavy discussions w/multiple teams on Derek Stepan, including the Minnesota Wild. In yesterday's the draft the Rangers were approached by the Wild in hopes of trading Draft Picks for Stepan, but MIN were quickly turned down. Now we are hearing that they are back, and it they are offering Jonas Brodin. The only problem is Rangers have another team on the line.
We can confirm the Montreal Canadiens are kicking tires on Stepan and they seemed to be VERY INTERESTED. He could be the #1 C they are looking for. Habs are reportedly offering up Alexei Emelin and Sven Andrighetto. This is slow moving deal but it's starting to really heat up. The Rangers want to make space for a BIG OFFER on Stamkos/Lucic. To us it's just a matter of time before NYR trades Stepan or Nash.
