In today’s NHL rumor rundown, there’s talk coming from Winnipeg that two players could be on the trade block. In the meantime, the Edmonton Oilers will likely be out of the competition Evan Rodriguez. What difference is still there? The Calgary Flames continue to work on MacKenzie Weegar’s contract extension and there is clarification on the status of contract talks between Montreal Canadiens and goalkeeper Jake Allen.
Planes ready to move Demello and Dillon?
Scott Bellick of the Winnipeg Sun suggests that one Dylan DeMello Or Brenden Dillon may be traded by the Jets over the coming weeks. Noting that the organization is one of the few teams with plenty of room to arm, the team can still add to their front group and it might make sense to send one of their sensible contracts out the door to get a bigger fish in the front position.
DeMelo ($3 million) and Dillon ($3.9 million) are within reach of the teams if they can move a larger contract in the trade. Meanwhile, it could open a place for one of these youngsters on the Blue Line which is a profitable position for aircraft.
The Jets can still pull off one of their veteran pieces, whether it’s Dillon or Dylan DeMelo (based on her friendlier decades than Nate Schmidt, for example). But if that’s not the case, there’s one place out there for players who are supposed to watch significant time in the National Hockey League this season. And Logan Stanley will not hold back on what could turn out to be a three-horse race for last place on the Blue Line.

Rodriguez Has a $2 Million Bid on the Table, Close Weegar?
Bob Stover from Oilers now He said the Oilers aren’t likely to be in the mix for a player like Evan Rodrigues, who has a $2 million bid on the table from a team. Stover said he spoke to an executive from another club who was looking at Rodriguez and the agent told him the offer is there and the player is simply waiting and hoping for something bigger and better presents itself before the season starts. Anaheim and Calgary were two teams rumored to be in the mix. If it exceeds $2 million, the flame will probably go out.
There is also an update on the contract negotiations between Flames and Mackenzie and jealous. Sportsnet’s Elliot Friedman reports in a newspaper Latest 32 Thoughts Podcast The two sides were quietly and constantly talking about a new deal. His career season, which included scoring 44 points and playing more than 23 minutes per night, is expected to double his current salary at $3.25 million per season.

Luke Fox Sportsnet is reporting this The Kings’ General Manager, Rob Blake, continues to negotiate with Dorzy’s camp. He writes, “GM Rob Blake is moving silently, but is said to be engaged in talks with Dorzy’s agent. The deal is still a work in progress.” This comes after news that the Kings have just signed a one-year contract with Mickey Anderson.

Canadians Conversations With Allen Just Bride
After reports emerged that the Canadians were talking to the goalkeeper Jake Allen On a long-term deal to stay with the club, Friedman explained in his podcast that those discussions are still in the initial stage. Nothing is imminent but the team wanted to know where Allen was. He is a suspended free agent at the end of the season.
The popular belief is that Allen could get close to the $4 million range in a new deal with Montreal. That’s a fitting increase on the $2.875 million he’s making now.
