Benning on Tryamkin

Sportsnet 650: Vancouver Canucks GM Jim Benning on Nikita Tryamkin: “I don’t really know why he left, I think he had his reasons. We did everything on our end to convince him to stay. It could be a maturity thing. I think he made good strides. He sees the good young players in our system and maybe he wants to be part of it.”

May not cost much to acquire Leddy

Scrimmage & Stats: Darren Dreger on TSN 690 believes that it would take a team a draft pick or prospect for defenseman Nick Leddy as the New York Islanders need the salary cap space.

Dreger says this is his guess and not the asking he’s heard.

Hurricanes could look to move Hamilton

@Prospects_Watch: Pierre McGuire said that he believes the Carolina Hurricanes will try to trade defenseman Dougie Hamilton. McGuire added that the Hurricanes won’t be trading defenseman Brett Pesce.

They’ll be a market for Perry if bought out

@Prospects_Watch: Darren Dreger on TSN 690 said that if Corey Perry were to get bought out, there would be a free agent market for him.

Dreger said the Edmonton Oilers could be a fit. If they were to get him on a short-term, discounted rate, why wouldn’t they be in on it?

Perry would help Connor McDavid on the leadership side of things.

Gardiner could sign with …

@Prospects_Watch: Pierre McGuire said that he would be shocked if pending free agent defenseman Jake Gardiner didn’t sign with either the Chicago Blackhawks or the Minnesota Wild.

Canadiens looking for defense

Prospects_Watch: Darren Dreger said on TSN 690 that talk is that Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin is looking to improve his blue line and looking to add a good young defenseman.

Agents to use Canucks to their advantage?

Taj: Sportsnet’s Rick Dhaliwal said that agents could be using the Vancouver Canucks to increase the price of free agents this offseason.

An agent told Dhaliwal that he hopes the Canucks are in on his client because he knows the term and the money would go up if they are in on the bidding.
