The Fourth Period: With the Buffalo Sabres locked in to take Jack Eichel 2nd overall in the NHL draft, the focus of Sabres General Manager Tim Murray will now shift to finding a top-six winger to play with Eichel.
The biggest chip the Sabres have to offer in any trade is the 2015 first-round pick of the New York Islanders.
The Hockey News: Will the Detroit Red Wings look at trade goalie Jimmy Howard? Red Wings GM Ken Holland must decide if Howard can regain his form next season or if Petr Mrazek is in fact ready to become the full-time starter. If it’s the latter, Howard could hit the trade block after July 1, when his no-movement clause becomes a modified no-trade.
Vancouver Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom will likely be traded this summer. The Canucks are lacking second and third-round picks in the 2015 NHL draft and the team wants a 3rd round pick for him. The Arizona Coyotes, Columbus Blue Jackets and Philadelphia Flyers are all teams looking for an affordable backup goalie.
