The Hockey News: The Florida Panthers want to ship out some veteran forwards to make room for younger players. Teams have interest in right winger Brad Boyes. Boyes could be a good fit with the Pittsburgh Penguins, who’ve been in market for a scoring winger since October.
Detroit Red Wings blueliner Jakub Kindl is on the trade block. Kindl is under contract through 2016-17 at an annual cap hit of $2.4 million, which could make him attractive in the trade market if the salary cap for 2015-16 fails to significantly increase.
New York Post: Can the New York Rangers afford to re-sign Martin St. Louis next season? They have cap issues and want to re-sign Marc Staal. They may have to look at trading Derek Stepan and Carl Hagelin in the off season.
