Little space for Dylan Strome
TSN: Pierre LeBrun on Insider Trading stated the Chicago Blackhawks are one group to enjoy on the trade market. With Jonathan Toews back at center, Kirby Dach, and Tyler Johnson who they got this offseason, there doesn’t seem space for Dylan Strome.
“… so Dylan Strome is the person I believe they’ve allocated to possibly move and I believe that might take place here in the short-term. Remember, 3rd general choice in 2015, how time flies Dylan Strome. “
Is the expense to obtain Vitali Kravtsov a second-round choice?
TSN: Chris Johnston stated that New York Rangers Vitali Kravtsov is another gamer who might be on the relocation quickly. Kravtsov representative has the ability to speak with groups and bring them to the table with the Rangers.
“Now, acquisition cost I think will be an important question here, and there is some precedent. Lias Andersson, a seventh overall pick by the Rangers, was traded last October for the 60th overall selection from L.A. and so if it’s a sort of bargain-type acquisition like that I could see this move happening quite quickly.”
Vincent Z. Mercogliano of Lohud: Vitali Kravtsov was under the presumption that he would begin the season with the Rangers. GM Chris Drury showed back on September 9th that Kravstov would begin with the group.
Kravtsov played in 2 preseason video games prior to missing out on 2 with an injury. He scored an objective in their preseason ending however it wasn’t enough.
Coach Gerard Gallant the other day.
“We said there was a battle for those spots all training camp long and the other guys played well. Some of the guys stayed up, like (Julien Gauthier) and (Dryden Hunt) and those guys, because they played really well at camp and they earned those positions.”
Kravtsov is waiver exempt whereas Gauthier, Hunt and Libor Hajek all need waivers.
Has this current circumstance reduced his trade worth?
Claude Giroux and the Flyers won’t talk agreement in-season
TSN: Pierre LeBrun stated that Claude Giroux, representative Pat Brisson, and the Philadelphia Flyers concurred this offseason that they won’t have any extension talks up until after this season. Giroux is going into the last year of his eight-year offer. He will see how he feels and how things play out this year.
“So, still a chance he signs after the season; there’s no rush, but it is interesting, that unlike a lot of other prominent players that are entering their final year that he chose not to extend.”
