NHL Rumors and News: Trading Tavares’ Rights? Ryan, Bruins, Stars, Wings, Preds, Devils, and JvR

The Arizona Coyotes and Philadelphia Flyers are just two of the teams interested in James van Riemsdyk

On #TavaresWatch …

Nick Kypreos: “Could the wait be in getting Lou to trade his rights to get the 8th year from another club?”

On the Ottawa Senators and Bobby Ryan

Bruce Garrioch: Bobby Ryan $2 million contract bonus was paid back on May 15th. He will have a $5.5 million salary next year.

On the Boston Bruins …

Andy Strickland: Kari Lehtonen may have been looking to backup Tuukka Rask in Boston, but as of now it’s not going to happen. A Western Conference team showed interest earlier, or he could retire if the right opportunity doesn’t arise.

On the Dallas Stars …

Darren Dreger: As the Stars await John Tavares‘ decision, they are looking at some of the other areas they need to fill. Anton Khudobin could be a good fit.

On the Anaheim Ducks and Winnipeg Jets …

David Pagnotta: The Ducks trade RFA Nic Kerdiles to the Jets for RFA Chase De Leo.

On the Detroit Red Wings …

Stephen Whyno: The Red Wings have signed pending free agent defenseman Mike Green to a two-year extension worth $10.75 million, a $5.375 million salary cap hit.

On the Nashville Predators …

Andy Strickland: The Predators have signed Zac Rinaldo to a two-way contract.

On the New Jersey Devils …

Chris Johnson: The Devils have signed goaltender Eddie Lack to a one-year, one-way deal worth $650,000.

John Shannon: Reason for signing Lack was for protection for Cory Schneider if he’s not recovered from his hip surgery by September or October.

On James van Riemsdyk

Maple Leafs Hot Stove: Elliotte Friedman last night on CHED 630.

“One of the things I’ve heard about van Riemsdyk is that, the longer this has gone on with Tavares, it’s also limited who he could visit. For example, I think Boston, if they don’t get Tavares, are going to get a winger. They were in on Rick Nash. Rick Nash is taking his time. I think they want to get a winger, but they’ve got to wait until they hear about Tavares. I think San Jose was interested in van Riemsdyk, but same deal. He’s got to wait until he hears about Tavares.

I think there are some other teams there. I think Arizona is there and very interested. I’ve heard Philadelphia was interested. I think for him to really leverage this market, he has to wait and see where Tavares is going to go. I do think, in his case, that is affecting everything else.”
