There have been ongoing NHL trade rumors about Connor Hellebuck and Mark Scheifele being traded, but no deals have been made so far this offseason.
It is speculated that Hellebuyck will begin the season with the Winnipeg Jets, but there is a possibility that the team may trade Scheifele before training camp commences in three weeks.
All members of the New York Rangers are now under contract since Alexis Lafreniere signed a two-year deal last week. The team can now assess their lineup and determine if they need to trade some players to acquire a center.
New York Rangers and Winnipeg Jets blockbuster deal
NHL trade rumors are making the rounds online that a four-player trade could be in the works.
The proposed trade:
To New York:
Mark Scheifele C at $6,125,000
Ville Heinola LD at $863,333
Filip Chytil C, LW at $4,437,500
Braden Schneider RD at $925,000
James Dolan, the owner of the New York Rangers, has a strong desire to win the Stanley Cup this season. In order to achieve this goal, a trade involving Mark Scheifele, who is currently in the prime of his career, would provide an immediate boost to the team’s performance.
Some Ranger fans may hesitate to part with Schneider, but if they want something good, they have to give up something good. The Winnipeg Jets are looking for NHL-ready players instead of focusing on draft picks.
