The 29-year old is a pending UFA and brings a $4.2 million wage cap hit.

Arizona Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun is likewise offered, however the asking cost for him is more than for Klingberg and Joe Haggerty has actually reported the Bruins likely don’t have the pieces to get a Chychrun offer done.
The Edmonton Oilers might utilize somebody like Josh Brown
Kurt Leavins of the Edmonton Journal: Though he’s right-handed and unsure who he would change in the lineup, however Ottawa Senators pending UFA Josh Brown is a rugged, 6-foot-5 defenseman the Edmonton Oilers might utilize.
The Oilers absolutely require a shake-up. It stays to be seen if the Oilers have the ability to sign Evander Kane and if he’s their missing component. Bringing in Kane is absolutely a threat. A short-term, rest of this season, decreases the threat.
