Canadiens GM watching the Avs again
Capitals GM on the trade deadline and pending UFA Braden Holtby
Samantha Pell: Washington Capitals GM Brian MacLellan on if the Capitals will make any other trades before Monday’s trade deadline: “We’re going to pursue anything we think can make us better. We’ll continue to talk to teams. We’ve had conversations as we’ve had with the defense and we’ll keep doing it and see if we can make our team better.”
J.J. Regan: Capitals GM MacLellan on pending UFA goaltender Braden Holtby: “I think our story’s been the same the whole year, that he’s our guy and we’re going to try to compete for a Cup. I think we want him at the top of his game at the end of the year.”
Stars could make a ‘small’ deal by Monday … a forward that has some offense?
Nill said that if an offer “blows his socks off” they would consider it. He’s not 100 percent ruling it out.
Mike Heika: Guess that the Stars will make a small deal closer to the deadline.
Believe they would like to add a skilled forward if they can find one at the right price.
Mike Heika of NHL.com: (mailbag) Think the Stars could do well by adding a scoring forward, one that can also play the other side of the puck as well.
Don’t think the Stars would be interested in moving top prospects like Thomas Harley, Jake Oettinger or Jason Robertson
