Good morning and happy Thursday! With Finland and Canada both winning their respective quarter-final contests, all New York Islanders prospects are onto the semi’s.

Could there be New York Islanders news before the end of the week? Is there a team that could use Semyon Varlamov right now?

These stories and more in today’s Rosner Wrap:

NYI Hockey Now: With Robin Lehner’s injury and Laurent Brossoit potentially out to start the season, the Vegas Golden Knights need a goaltender. They were a team that inquired about Semyon Varlamov at the trade deadline. How does James Reimer fit into this? New York Islanders.

NYI Hockey Now: Anthony Beauvillier to the Montreal Canadiens? Per a league source, the Islanders were not willing to take back a player with salary, ending trade talks. New York Islanders.

NYI Hockey Now: NHL insider John Shannon shared on a podcast interview that he expects the Nazem Kadri will be signing with the Islanders, with trades coming this week. New York Islanders.

Pittsburgh Hockey Now: It’s no secret that, with training camp little more than a month away, the Pittsburgh Penguins have a surplus of NHL-caliber defensemen. Sending Ty Smith to the AHL is an easy call, until it isn’t. Pittsburgh Penguins.

Washington Hockey Now: When he came into the NHL, Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid was already a household name and potentially even the second Wayne Gretzky. And since then, he’s taken the NHL by storm. He is not only the top center in the league, but arguably the best in the world. And, it’s possible that a 1645 painting could have predicted that McDavid would exist… right? Washington Capitals.

Detroit Hockey Now: Former Detroit Red Wings defenseman Marc Staal was recently effusive in his praise of the Florida Panthers, his new NHL home. It would be easy for Red Wings fans to take offense to some of the words Staal spoke. Detroit Red Wings.

Colorado Hockey Now: This figures to be the most pivotal, important season in the still-young career of Shane Bowers, the former first-round draftee who came over to the Colorado Avalanche in the Matt Duchene trade several years ago. Bowers, 23, signed a new one-year, two-way contract. Colorado Avalanche.

San Jose Hockey Now: On the surface, P.K. Subban to the San Jose Sharks makes some sense. San Jose Hockey Now, however, spoke with an NHL scout who was quick to throw cold water on the idea. San Jose Sharks.

Calgary Hockey Now: With the losses of Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk, there’s an opening on top line. Could Dylan Dube fill it? Calgary Flames.
