NHL Rumors: New York Islanders, and the Columbus Blue Jackets
The Islanders have actually been remarkably peaceful in totally free firm

Kevin Kurz of The Athletic: The New York Islanders haven’t truly done anything yet with concerns to their forward group, which is unexpected.

There are still some choices for Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello.

The Islanders had interest in Johnny Gaudreau however as Pierre LeBrun reported recently, they couldn’t produce the cap area to fit him in.

Goaltender Semyon Varlamov brings a $5 million cap hit and a 16-team no-trade provision. Forwards Josh Bailey at $5 million and Anthony Beauvillier at $4.15 must have held some trade worth.

A vital week for the Blue Jackets

Aaron Portzline of The Athletic: There needs to be some issue now for the Calgary Flames about perhaps losing Matthew Tkachuk.

A source stated that the New Jersey Devils used Johnny Gaudreau a seven-year offer at $10.2 million. Gaudreau took $15.75 million less than the Flames deal (one year less too) and $3.15 million less than the Devils deal.

Gaudreau considered Philadelphia. Philadelphia didn’t truly eye Gaudreau.

This week appears essential in the Columbus Blue Jackets – Patrik Laine settlements. Talks appear to be moving gradually however appear to still be friendly. He can accept his $7.5 million certifying deal till this Friday. He didn’t declare income arbitration. He’s one year from being a UFA.

If they have the ability to re-sign Laine, or if he accepts his certifying deal, GM Jarmo Kekalainen might need to clear $5 to $6 million off the books.

“We’ll keep talking,” Kekalainen stated. “It’s not like we haven’t been negotiating in good faith. We have been, the whole time. At some point, it’ll be decision time.”

Elliotte Friedman reported the Blue Jackets made a pitch to Nazem Kadri however pulled it once it appeared like they were landing Gaudreau.

Blue Jackets possibility Corson Ceulemans stated he might turn professional after another season at the University of Wisconsin.
