Jones could be intriguing for the Jets
Mike McIntyre: (When requested if he would commerce Kyle Connor for Seth Jones) “I’d be hesitant to commerce anybody for Seth Jones until you might be assured to lock him up long-term, and at a value you’ll be able to afford. However the pending UFA subsequent summer time is an intriguing participant. Connor is a commerce chip if taking a giant blue-line swing, IMO.”
Penguins offseason priorities
Dan Kingerski of Pittsburgh Hockey Now: The Pittsburgh Penguins wish to add some dimension this offseason. Additionally they don’t have to fill all their holes instantly as some strikes can wait till the commerce deadline subsequent season.
Prime priorities for the Penguins
Proper-side defenseman – A gap the necessity to fill, both re-signing Cody Ceci or discovering a free agent.
Physicality – The Penguins may have to maneuver out some wage earlier than they can add. Free company is probably not a match so they might have to hit the commerce market. That is the world that will await the commerce deadline.
Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang is getting into the ultimate 12 months of his deal. The 34-year previous carries a $7.25 million cap hit. He put up 45 factors in 55 video games this previous season, averaging 24:39 minutes per sport.
His no-movement clause means he must be protected within the enlargement. Early final month GM Ron Hextall mentioned Letang was a part of their core and has a future with the group.
What would an extension appear like? Given his age, it must be a short-term deal.
Wild re-sign Bjugstad
He recorded six objectives and 11 assists in 44 video games final season.
