Dylan Larkin trade rumors
Is a Dylan Larkin trade coming soon? He wants to be paid like a 1st line center but Red Wings management say no to the money he wants.

Dylan Larkin has been in the NHL trade rumors mill for a few months now and teams are watching closely on whether he will re-sign with the Detroit Red Wings or be made available for a trade in the coming weeks.

Larkin is a pending unrestricted free agent and he is looking to be paid in his next deal. Reports are he is looking at a similar contract Mathew Barzal signed with the New York Islanders.

Earlier this year, Barzal signed an 8-year contract extension with the Isles worth $72.3 million which gave the Islanders a cap hit of $9.150 million.

What is the latest Dylan Larkin rumors

The Fourth Period reports Detroit Red Wings management presented it latest contract offer to Dylan Larkin and it was rejected. It appears both sides are still far apart on the dollar amount.

Larkin has told reporters that contract talks are taking longer than expected. If no deal is worked out leading up to the NHL trade deadline, will the Red Wings risk losing Larkin for nothing in the summer?

What are fans saying about a Dylan Larkin trade

As a Detroit Red Wings fan, I say try and see what best trade package would look like at NHL trade deadline. Dylan Larkin is a top 2c and isn’t a top 1C. Shouldn’t get paid like like a 1C. Take the picks and top prospects and add to the depth of the team.

Larkin is making $6 million/year now . Not deserving a raise and as we saw with Vrana, Yzerman does what he sees best for team

As a Red Wings fan this makes me extremely nervous, and I haven’t been concerned he’d leave at all until seeing a lot of Larkin rumors popping up now.
