Panthers and Blues thinking about Chiarot
NHL Watcher: Elliotte Friedman on The Jeff Marek Show: “I’ve heard Chiarot rumoured with Florida, I have heard a little bit of St. Louis.”
Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet: Wonder if the St. Louis Blues will want to go all-in this season and see if they might get somebody like Ben Chiarot.
Jeremy Rutherford: The Blues will require to choose just how much they wish to invest at the trade due date on defenseman. Current defenseman Nico Mikkola is revealing up until now that he can manage his own.
Kings keeps in mind on Quick, Kopitar, Doughty, Brown, Blake and Kempe
Lisa Dillman of The Athletic: (mailbag) Trading a goaltender like Jonathan Quick at the trade due date doesn’t occur typically. An injury might alter that – see Edmonton Oilers and Mike Smith.
The Kings have actually invested a lot in winger Adrian Kempe so they likely won’t be costing the due date.
Believe that Anze Kopitar will retire a King, much like Ryan Getzlaf will with the Ducks.
Teams that may be thinking about defenseman Drew Doughty likely don’t have the income cap area to include him. Dustin Brown must complete his profession with the Kings.
There might be a lot more selling at the trade due date this year than in the past.
The Fourth Period: Dennis Bernstein and John Hoven were talking with Los Angeles Kings GM Rob Blake on “Kings of the Podcast.”
Blake remains in the in 2015 of his agreement with the Kings and stated that he wants to return, and suggested that when the times comes, he and Luc Robitaille will deal with an extension.
They are wanting to enhance the Kings which it might occur at the trade due date.
“I fully anticipate moves going forward will have impacts on the roster to make us better.”
Forward Dustin Brown is a pending UFA and the sides have actually had short talks.
They are not anticipated to have any agreement talks with Adrian Kempe‘s camp until after the season. He’s a pending UFA.
