The Pittsburgh Penguins’ new management team will be in place soon. With new GM Ron Hextall, Brian Burke will assume the role of President of Hockey Operations as he arrives in town on Sunday. Hockey insiders are already pontificating about the first big Hextall and Burke move on the NHL trade market. Some, including a source close to the Penguins, are already speculating about John Gibson, a native Pittsburgh son, who is in a sinking situation in Burke’s old stomping grounds, Anaheim.

Also, in the Off the Record, did the Vancouver Canucks owner try to put out a fire that he started? And, are the Blackhawks still all-in on the rebuild they warned fans about, or are they suddenly seeing visions of playoffs dance through their heads?

More on that in the latest ‘Off The Record’:

Off the Record: NHL Trade Talk Picks Up; Eichel, Bennett | NYHN+

NHL Trade

The 2021 NHL Trade Deadline is just over a month away, and with Canadian teams facing the challenge of a two-week quarantine for any player they acquire from teams below the border, NHL trade chatter has picked up in the last week. As one NHL source reiterated more than once though in recent phone conversations: 

‘The biggest issue as always is money. The difference this time, it’s not just Cap money. It’s money in general. Many owners are bleeding it. GM’s need to convince them to go for it, and that’s a challenge (without) gate revenue.’

One can hope that the NHL Trade Deadline is the annual carnival of surprise, instead of a duckpond letdown. With that in mind, the latest Off The Record looks at the NHL trade rumors that won’t go away in those surrounding Buffalo Sabres captain Jack Eichel and Calgary Flames forward Sam Bennett. Also, why is Boston Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk starting to pop up in NHL Trade rumors again?

Trotz: Kieffer Bellows in ‘Waiting Pattern’ to Get Back into Islanders Lineup | NYHN+

Kieffer Bellows

The youth movement appears to be in full swing on Long Island. While the likes of Oliver Wahlstrom, Noah Dobson and Michael Dal Colle have thrived recently, Kieffer Bellows has remained conspicuously absent from the lineup.

After appearing in seven of the New York Islanders’ first eight games of the year, Bellows has appeared in just one game since the calendar Jan. 30. And in his lone appearance on Feb. 18 against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the 22-year-old had a rough night on the ice playing just 7:29 of the game and getting beat by Jason Zucker on Pittsburgh’s third goal of the night.

Bellows was a minus-2 on the night and saw just two shifts in the final frame of the game. Islanders head coach Barry Trotz didn’t let Bellows off the hook that night and he hasn’t put him back in the lineup since.
