Scouting the Ottawa Senators and Vegas Golden Knights
Murray Pam: Scouts listed to attend last night’s Senators-Golden Knights game: Calgary Flames, Dallas Stars, Florida Panthers, Montreal Canadiens and the Washington Capitals.
Flames looking for a top-six
“They hope to add a top-six forward, a right-hand shot. That’s a key criteria for the Calgary Flames and it makes me think there’s certainly some interest in Tyler Toffoli from the LA Kings, among other targets.”
Oilers looking for a top-six, eyeing the Leafs?, Wild open for business

Is there a goalie controversy brewing in Chicago?
Bob McKenzie adds that Lehner has said he won’t take a discount on a long-term deal. Crawford has said he doesn’t want to be a backup.
“Does he trade one of these guys? Which one can he sign? And I would imagine in the days and weeks ahead they will get down to brass tacks in terms of talking contract to both guys to see what the expectations are and how that decision is going to go before the deadline.”
Pierre LeBrun says to keep an eye on the Carolina Hurricanes with regards to Lehner.
“If and when Robin Lehner becomes available by the way, keep an eye on Carolina. They tried to sign him last summer and I think they’d like to add more insurance in goal. That’s a guy they have on their list.”
