In the summary of rumors today, the Leafs have to decide the price they are willing to pay for a defender, the Sabers and Jeff Skinner are working hard to make a deal. At the same time, Kevin Shattenkirk tries not to think about being able to be transported outside of New York and the Oilers seek to make a deal but also be cautious about their approach.
Maple Leafs Interested in Jake Muzzin
Darren Dreger was in the TSN 1050 talking about the fact that Maple Leafs GM Kyle Dubas and the entire management group are having difficulty deciding how they are willing to trade assets for a defender. Dreger said that a name that maple leaves are interested is Jake Muzzin.
Dreger says that the sale price of Jake Muzzin is a selection and a first-round perspective and it is a right because it does not meet exactly its most urgent need and renounce someone like Kasperi Kapanen in this situation is not an ideal alternative for leaves .

Darren Dreger went to WGR 550 and said he believes Buffalo Sabers are working with the Jeff Skinner agency, the Newport Sports Agency, to sign again. Dreger said: "I do not think they're still."
Skinner has been a revelation for Sabers this season, but there could still be a gap so large that an agreement can not be found before the trade date limit. This will leave the organization with a tough decision. Does the team roll the dice and enter a playoff race without signing Skinner? Or do you realize that the emptiness is so large that an extension seems unlikely?
In the end, Dreger said he did not think the Sabers dispatched Jack Eichel and Skinner and that "he would be very surprised if they could not reach an agreement."

Oil tankers try to adopt the smart approach to the trade limit
Elliotte Friedman went to Sportsnet 960 and commented on the possible approach of Edmonton Oilers to the trade limit date. If the pipelines will be sold by Jesse Puljujarvi or the first round of 2019, they will go on stepping carefully and make sure that the agreement is correct. It must be the type of deal that helps the team to enter the playoffs.
Friedman has heard that the team is and is not looking to move to Puljujarvi, so, so real is this possibility, it is still unclear. But, he thinks that while the computer can not buy it, they receive calls and are listening to offers. They are interested in negotiating in Puljujarvi, who are not and who do not want if they do not.
"Try some other things. They have a first round. Maybe they'll think about moving it with some protection to get a very high selection. But the teams will ask about Puljujarvi, and we'll see what they decide to do."
At the end of the day, it seems that the Oilers will be active and seek to make an agreement, but the plan is to move the pieces that they want to move before moving to any piece that is reluctant to move.

Kevin Shattenkirk at the Board of Commerce again?
Larry Brooks of the NY Post reports that New York Rangers defender Kevin Shattenkirk is again notified as a possible trade. Feels that he has played better in the afternoon, and like the other players that produce, they become a little more attractive in the commerce market.
Brooks writes that Shattenkirk is not thinking about being traded, but knows it's possible. He explains: "I have not thought much about the possibility, but I do not want to say it's asleep either." He added: "Due to my past, I am always aware of this, but I am not concerned either."
Shattenkirk has spent two years agreeing with a $ 6.65 million salary check affected by a modified non-trading clause: a list of 10 non-commercial equipment that was sent last July.
