I am switching things up for today's edition of NHL Buzz, instead of telling you random rumors I am answering questions that the people want to know.
A: Hearing they are having talks but nothing is close...yet.
A: No, if they got Kovalchuk at a price around say 7.5 mil a year they would still have enough cap to give Ryan what he wants.
A: It doesn't look like Sutton will be back but anything is possible. On the RFA's they are currently talking to Chris Campoli and Peter Regin but nothing is close yet.
A: If Kovalchuk stays in New Jersey it will probably be a 3-5 year deal at around 6.5 million per season but if he was to sign in Anaheim he would probably make 7-8 million per season.
A: I don't know if I would go as far as to say he will get traded to the Kings however, I believe he will be traded and the Kings are interested so it could happen.
A: Sounds like they are looking for a top 4 defenseman and maybe a depth player or two.
A: The Penguins are strongly considering moving Staal or Malkin to the wing, if they do that they are looking for a 3rd line center, Niedermayer, Madden and Belanger are possible candidates.
A: I can't confirm this but various reports have said that Price will not sign until he gets full value because with Halak gone he now knows he is the #1 goalie and believes he should be paid like one.
This concludes today's edition of NHL Buzz, enjoy!
