NHL Rumors: Tampa Bay Lightning, Los Angeles Kings, and the New York Rangers
BriseBois after maximizing some cap area

Chris Krenn: Tampa Bay Lightning GM Julien BriseBois after the Ryan McDonagh trade to Nashville:

“We maximized some cap area for ‘23-24 and beyond, which I am confident will enable us to protect the rights to Anthony Cirelli, Erik Cernak, and Mikhail Sergachev for several years to come.

Having those gamers on top of Vasilevskiy, Hedman, Point, Kuch, Stamkos, and all the other great gamers we have for the foreseeable future, I believe that extends our window of being a Stanley Cup competitor.”

Joe Smith: BriseBois didn’t have an upgrade on Ondrej Palat and Jan Rutta. Hopes to be able to re-sign them.

BriseBoise stated they don’t intend on buyout out Philippe Myers.

Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet: The Tampa Bay Lightning might trade out of the preliminary as they don’t have a 2nd or 3rd. They are attempting to re-sign Ondrej Palat and Jan Rutta. They are attempting to perhaps move Alex Killorn.

The Kings are refrained from doing

NHL Watcher: Jeff Marek and Elliotte Friedman both believe the Los Angeles aren’t completed.

Marek questions if the New York Rangers don’t re-sign Andrew Copp, that the Kings may be interested.

Friedman questions if the Kings attempt to signing pending UFA defenseman Josh Manson.

Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet: They’ve traded for Kevin Fiala currently. They like pending UFA Andrew Copp however unsure if there is a still a fit. Will they sign Adrian Kempe to an agreement extension? Josh Manson may intrigue them. They do require left handed defensemen over right-handed defensemen.

Rangers close on a Kaapo Kakko extension

Vince Z. Mercogliano: (thread) It’s not a trick that the New York Rangers are taking a look at the center market.

The Rangers have some wage cap and no-movement provision concerns.

It’s seeming like the Rangers and Kaapo Kakko might be surrounding a bridge offer.

If Vitali Kravtsov isn’t traded by training school in September, he’ll make their NHL lineup.
