Off The Record: Florida Mistakes Ripple NHL Trade Market | NYHN+

Published

on

Did Bill Zito shake up the NHL Trade market and make Team USA standout goalie Spencer Knight reconsider playing for the Florida Panthers?

As the NHL got underway last week, Florida Panthers veteran defenseman Keith Yandle was suddenly cast into a whirlwind of NHL Trade rumors. Yandle’s name is still very much out there, but did internal and external pressure force Florida Panthers General Manager Bill Zito to change course in handling the delicate Yandle situation and the Iron Man streak?

If and when Yandle is traded, what will the ripple effect be on the NHL trade market, and more specifically, what will happen with Columbus Blue Jackets forward Pierre-Luc Dubois?

Are the Buffalo Sabres a goalie away from contending in the East Division, adding yet another stacked opponent for the New York Islanders?

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?

Off The Record: Virtanen Chatter, Delays, and Pains in the A** | NYHN+

NHL trade chatter, Jake Virtanen, New York Islanders

The NHL trade market is getting muddy as teams need immediate help, but quarantine rules stand in the way. The New York Islanders East Division rivals are poking around trade help. Would a Jake Virtanen for Jake DeBrusk trade make sense for the Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks, or is there a Virtanen sweepstakes in the East Division being held up by the Pittsburgh Penguins GM search?

Teams watched the fallout from the Patrik Laine-Pierre-Luc Dubois trade. The quarantine period for both players surely affected the NHL trade market and how teams proceed. Teams can’t get immediate help. 

What should we make of the rapid COVID outbreaks around the NHL? Is there a snowballs’ chance the league could return to Hub cities?

New York Islanders

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — It may have been the understatement of the night when New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov said that “we needed that one” when asked about the importance of the win over Pittsburgh on Saturday.

After dropping their last five games the Islanders need a win, and they got it in their first game back after an unexpected week off thanks to COVID-19 cancellations. Jordan Eberle scored twice, Semyon Varlamov came away with the win in his 500th NHL game and Anders Lee was the hero.

It wasn’t a pretty win, but at this point, as the old saying goes, a win is a win.

Here are three takeaways from the win:
