Latest NHL Trade Rumors from Elliotte Friedman

Sportsnet: Sounds like Toronto is looking for a depth centre. With Ben Smith still out, they could use some extra insurance beyond Frederik Gauthier. Sam Bennett was a healthy scratch last Thursday, and Calgary GM Brad Treliving got his share of texts/calls about it. He told compatriots Bennett isn’t getting traded. St. Louis is trying to move money for flexibility. I wondered if a Kevin Shattenkirk/Ben Bishop deal would make sense since both teams are looking for that kind of help, but Bishop is struggling and might not be the Blues’ answer. Doug Armstrong and Steve Yzerman are tight. I think Armstrong saw Tampa Bay up close last week.
