Welcome to our day-to-day rumours short article gave you by Betway Sports
Jim Matheson: Would need to presume that the Vegas Golden Knights have actually called the San Jose Sharks about goaltender James Reimer.
James Nichols: The Golden Knights had an interest in New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov back at the trade due date.
Vegas doesn’t seem on Varlamov’s no-trade list as far as understands.
Have an inkling that Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello has an interest in separating the Varlamov-Ilya Sorokin tandem at this moment.
Saad Yousuf: Not sure if the Golden Knights would have an interest in a Dallas Stars goaltender who is aging, abilities are reducing, has actually had a hard time that previous couple of years and brings a $3.33 million income cap hit. The Stars need to be attempting to trade Anton Khudobin.
Saad Yousuf: Khudobin certainly isn’t changing Lehner however if the Golden Knights think that Logan Thompson might run short-term with the 1 or 1A, Khudobin might be an appropriate backup for them. He’s great in the locker space.
Jesse Granger of The Athletic: The Vegas Golden Knights will be searching for another goaltender now that Robin Lehner will be out for the season.
Free Agent alternatives – Braden Holtby, and Cory Schneider. Filip Larsson isn’t much of an upgrade if at all over their existing goalies.
Trade alternative – New York Islanders Semyon Varlamov has a year left on his offer at a $5 million cap hit.
Offer Sheet – Dallas Stars Jake Oettinger. It’s the least most likely of the above alternatives however it’s a choice. The Golden Knights don’t have their second-round choice so they’d require to use in between $4,201,489 and $6,302,230, which would cost a very first- and a third-round choice. Lehner is under agreement for 3 more years and the Stars would likely match.
