As NHL trade rumors heat up over the next few weeks, the latest has multiple teams interested in making a Mark Giordano trade. Things have not gone as planned in Seattle and Giordano is open to be traded to a Stanley Cup contender.
Emily Kaplan of ESPN reports Giordano has a 10-team no-trade list and Giordano has not even bothered to submit the list as he knows he will be traded to a contender.
Kaplan went on to say, teams that have showed the most interest in a Girodano trade include the New York Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Florida Panthers, St. Louis Blues and Carolina Hurricanes.
If a Giordano trade is to happen, the Seattle Kraken are able to retain up to 50% of Mark Giordano’s $6.75 million salary cap hit to drive up the return the Kraken could receive.
