Options for Jack Campbell
Darren Dreger had been reporting for a week that the Oilers would be interested.
Avs will speak to Alexander Georgiev soon
Pierre Lebrun: Avs GM Joe Sakic believes they will RFA Georgiev by the end of the weekend.
Teams that will be interested Darcy Kumper
Adrian Dater: Teams expected to be interested in UFA goalkeeper Darcy Kumper appear Edmonton Oilers (beloved), New Jersey Devils, Washington Capitals, Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators and Buffalo Sabres.
Andy Strickland: Can’t see what Kumper can get Philip Grubauer money (six years at $5.9 million). It won’t be six years, maybe closer to three years and I’d guess in the $5 million to $5.5 million range.
The Blackhawks are burning him, don’t see Kane staying
Neil McHale: Craig Button on TSN 1050: “You talk about rebuilding them in 2-3 years, try 5-7. They burn his dates. Like Patrick Kane, do you think he’s a bum? No chance. He is on his way out. He’s from here…
“The bottom line is that they are not ready to be competitive again sometime in 2030. That’s where their plan is. You think about where they were before they won all those Stanley Cups, now they’re going back to where they came from. Ok, I understand what you are building.
“But Alex DeBrincat is a proven scorer of 40 goals. A great move for Ottawa Senators get that player at his age who is scoring at that rate. For the Blackhawks, it’s all about the future, the problem is that the future is far, far away.”
