Happy Saturday hockey fans!
Edmonton Oilers, Sam Gagner is the new hot trade rumor in the world of NHL trade deadline chatter. Gagner appears to be the first heavily shopped Oiler this year of what figures to be a new rebuild…again. There are not a lot of specific teams connected with Gagner rumors, but off-hand mentions have been made about the New York Rangers, Winnipeg Jets, and Pittsburgh Penguins.
Sam Gagner current contract: Signed through 2015-2016 with a salary of $4.8 mil per.
New Jersey Devils, Jaromir Jagr trade rumors to the Montreal Canadiens seem to have cooled down quite a bit. Jagr rumors as a whole seem to have settled down greatly from a week ago.
Jaromir Jagr current contract: Signed through this year only with a salary of $2 mil.
If Gagner is the most mentioned rumor this week, then Columbus Blue Jackets, Marian Gaborik is the second. The most likely teams linked are the Detroit Red Wings, San Jose Sharks, and Vancouver Canucks.
Marian Gaborik current contract: Signed through this year only with a salary of $7.5 mil.
Buffalo Sabres, Matt Moulson was last weeks most discussed trade rumor. While still highly trending, talk has cooled off a bit while the Sabres new GM settles in. Much with Buffalo is riding on what happens with goalie Ryan Miller who the team would like to keep, but will shop heavily should he not wish to stay. Linked teams are the Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, Chicago Blackhawks.
Matt Moulson current contract: Signed through this year only with a salary of $3.13 mil.
Ryan Miller current contract: Signed through this year only with a salary of $6.25 mil.
