Off The Record: Like NBA Players, NHLers Can Force A Trade | NYHN+

Did Pierre-Luc Dubois shift the power for players on the NHL trade market?

Are NHL players about to follow the lead of NBA players and be able to force their way out of town with a trade whenever things don’t go their way? Are the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers on a collision course via the NHL trade market, and could Philadelphia and Florida be soul mates?

In the OTR today, the Keystone State Rivalry is alive and well on the NHL Trade market as the Penguins trade winds are blowing. Still, trade rumors are circulating that Philadelphia and Florida are perfect trade partners.

Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin is on a mission.

Could Gary Thorne be calling NHL games again soon? (Yes, please).
