In the rundown of today’s National Hockey League rumors, the Carolina Hurricanes are allowing defensive man Dougie Hamilton to speak with other teams about a possible extension. Meanwhile, a few clerks are looking at what offers the Colorado Avalanche may have to Gabriel Landskog, the St. Louis Blues may offer another move to Mike Hoffman, and Owen Power may not join the NHL next season.
Hamilton has given permission to speak with interested teams الفرق
Opening the door for a potential signing and trading scenario, Hurricanes told Hamilton he’s welcome to test the market before the free dealership and talk to other teams. report from Sportsnet’s Elliot Friedman It indicates that the defense man is expected to see what is out there and then make a decision about his future.
Once he knows what the market will charge for his services, he can go back to the hurricanes or tell them he’d like it to be traded and the institution can move it, maximizing their return to the player they are likely to lose to the highest bidder anyway.
This isn’t the first time hurricanes have done something like this. They traded Joel Edmondson last season for the Montreal Canadiens and immediately signed the defender for four years, $14 million.
Hamilton scored 42 points in 55 games during the 2020-21 season and would be a hot commodity on the open market.
‘buckle up’ when he comes to rudd brind’amour
In other hurricane news, Friedman noted in his recent speech حديث 31 thoughts podcast That he received a text message from someone who said, simply, “fasten your seat belts” when it came to head coach Rob Brentmore. It wasn’t entirely clear what that meant, but Friedman questioned whether Brendamor might still be in Carolina in an uncoached role.
Friedman added that there are teams who want to talk to him and have their picture taken, even if they know they’re not likely to land him. The New York Rangers and Seattle Kraken are rumored to be among the teams of interest.
Avalanche to offer a “take it or leave it deal” to Landeskog?
Mike Chambers, Mark Kesla and Ryan O’Alloron of The Denver Post write that they are not sure what approach the Colorado Avalanche will take with Landeskog as a free agent. Some think he’s a priority, while others think he doesn’t count on his lack of production against the Vegas Golden Knights.
Landeskog was a stud in the St. Louis and I remember it would definitely be a priority signing of the free agent. I’m not sure now. At the moment, the club may offer him a “take it or leave it” offer of around $5 million a year and not at his preferred length in years.

In this scenario, Chambers says Avs will bet on the fact that he doesn’t want to leave or move his family. O’Halloron notes that the alternative is a bad team with a salary cap like L.A. or Anaheim offering them the kind of money he can’t turn down or turn down.
Could Hoffman return to the blues?
inside blouse Andy Strickland He writes that UFA commentator Mike Hoffman has not necessarily ruled out a return to the Blues next season. He writes: “Saint. It’s clear that Lewis will need to show him some love in a potential deal. He had a fair amount of interest in the last season and will have some options again.”
It’s an interesting report considering there were rumors on last season’s trade deadline that the Blues might in fact be open to trading with Hoffman even though he was relatively productive and signed a one-year friendly deal with the team to maximize his value for the season. Strickland adds, “Last season, he got a lot of interest, and the same is expected in the off-season.”
Owen Bauer thinking about not going pro?
to me Adam Kimmelman of NHL.comThe potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NHL Draft may not join the league next season. Owen Power commented that he is leaning toward a return to the University of Michigan next season.
“Now I think I’m more inclined towards going back to school. It’s something I would like to do, trying to get the real experience of playing college hockey. At the end of the day it obviously depends on what the team wants and what everyone around me thinks is best. I don’t think that There’s a really bad choice, but I’d say I’m a bit more inclined towards going back to school now.”
One has to wonder if this changes how Buffalo Sabers feel about being drafted first overall. They are likely looking for an influential player who can come and help right away.
