Gusev and Golden Knights are not close on a deal … A variety of trade options may be explored
Jesse Granger of The Athletic: Forward Nikita Gusev might be the next Vegas Golden Knights player that is moved out.
A source saying the Golden Knights and Gusev are $2 million per year apart on a two-year deal.
“We think (Gusev) is a really good player,” Golden Knights president of hockey operations George McPhee said Monday. “We’d like to work something out here, but if that doesn’t work out we’ll look at options.”
“There’s definitely an interest in him,” McPhee said. “We’ve had people call us on him. We’ll see what develops. I can’t tell you what will happen, but we’ll work on it. He’s been very, very good on the international stage. He wants to play in the NHL. He worked very hard to get over here, and we’re going to accommodate him one way or another, either here or with another club.”
Gusev could be a Plan B option for teams that lost out on Artemi Panarin.
Cody Glass could be ready for third-line duty which could make Eakin expendable.
