Jujhar Khaira might be heading to Minnesota
Elliotte Friedman: Have been hearing that the Minnesota Wild and Jujhar Khaira are dealing with something and he might be at their training school.
Michael Russo: Khaira will get either a PTO that winds up being an agreement or an agreement prior to the start of training school. He’s a huge center and will offer depth.
Michael Russo: Would presume that Khaira’s agreement will be a two-way offer.
Mikael Backlund another Calgary Flame waiting to see how things clean
Eric Francis of Sportsnet: 34-year-old Mikael Backlund is another Calgary Flames gamer going into the last year of his agreement and he wishes to see how things play out a bit.
“I haven’t closed any doors. I’m excited to start the season. We’ll see how things shake out.”
There have actually been a great deal of modifications in Calgary over the previous year. Backlund is coming off a profession high 56 points however understands he doesn’t have actually several years left.
“There were so many things that happened over the year – coaching staff, management, big stars leaving a year ago… I just want to see where this organization is going,”
“I just have many years left, and I wish to take advantage of it.
“I love Calgary. I’m not just going to take off and leave. It’s a big decision, but that hasn’t been done yet.”
It appears not likely that Bruins and Flames will cut a deal
Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey Now: It appears not likely now that the Boston Bruins and Calgary Flames have the ability to make a huge trade regardless of being connected throughout the offseason.
Multiple GMs have actually verified the Bruins signed in on Flames center Elias Lindholm, in addition to defenseman Noah Hanifin, who is from Norwood, MA.
The Bruins don’t have first-round draft choices and leading potential customers that would enable them to obtain these kinds of gamers unless they want to trade Fabian Lysell or Mason Lohrei.
Both Lindholm and Hanifin did recently that they were open to remaining in Calgary.
