No contract extension talks for Gustafsson
“What happens, happens,” Gustafsson said Tuesday. “If I get traded or stay here, it’s something I have to deal with. But I want to stay here and help this team win.”
Gustafsson has moved down the depth chart. He has a nice $1.2 million cap hit but could get $3 to $4 million on his next deal. The Blackhawks don’t have a lot of available cap space for next season.
There have been no contract extension talks with the Blackhawks.
Rumor round-up involving the Senators, Oilers, Rangers, Sabres, Wild, Panthers, Ducks, and Predators
Don’t think the Edmonton Oilers would want to trade their first-round draft pick or Jesse Puljujarvi for a rental player. They also don’t really want to move their top defensive prospects.
The New York Rangers and Chris Kreider are talking contract extension, but the Rangers are also talking to teams about him.
The Florida Panthers have tested the market for defenseman Mike Matheson. He’s got six-years left at $4.875 million per. His salary increases towards the end of the contract which complicates things.
The Nashville Predators will have decisions to make with Mikael Granlund as they play themselves in and out of a playoff race.
