Will Matt Duchene be traded to the Carolina Hurricanes?

Could the Avalanche and Hurricanes make a trade

Sportsnet: Elliotte Friedman suggests the Carolina Hurricanes are a logical trading partner for the Colorado Avalanche. The Hurricanes carry depth in good young defensemen. Avs forwards Gabriel Landeskog and Matt Duchene are carrying term on their contracts, which is usually what the Hurricanes prefer. The Hurricanes also have sufficient cap space to take on someone such as Duchene, who could fill their need for a true top-line center.

Will the Minnesota Wild make a trade for a forward?

TSN: Pierre LeBrun reports the Minnesota Wild are very deep at defense and prefer to keep it that way, but they stand to lose a good player via the expansion draft in June.

Will the St. Louis Blues look for goaltending help?

The Hockey News: Jake Allen was recently pulled for the second time in four games and his struggles this season have reached their height.

Option for the Blues are Marc-Andre Fleury, Ben Bishop or even bring back Ryan Miller for another playoff run.
