St. Louis Blues defenseman Vince Dunn is once again the subject of NHL Trade rumors. Not only the Pittsburgh Penguins are or were interested, but other teams are also circling the talented blueliner. Are the Boston Bruins interested again? Eyebrows were raised by a Philadelphia Flyers surprise scratch, which served to put the team on notice, but it also could mean bigger things down the road in Philadelphia. 

The Calgary Flames snapped a three-game losing streak on Saturday night, but they’re not safe yet. Sources tell OTR that a shakeup in Calgary is possible if conditions deteriorate further. And if a Calgary shakeup is necessary, big names will be on the NHL trade block.

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

Published

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.

OTR: Bruins, Kings Big-Game Hunting; Teams Called About Price | NYHN+

Published

NHL Trade

What should we make of Carey Price’s struggles? A rival team executive weighed in on what could be coming down the road for the Montreal Canadiens goalie, the most likely course of action, and if he has any value on the NHL trade market. Also in this week’s OTR, the LA Kings joined the Boston Bruins as teams that are big-game hunting, and how do the Colorado Avalanche figure into both of those scenarios?

It’s been an interesting week Off the Record. The NHL trade whispers have quieted as the Jake Virtanen to Anaheim deal petered out (for now). Penguins GM Ron Hextall said the Penguins would consider adding toughness, and the Seattle Kraken are lurking.

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?
