Are the New York Rangers shopping a first round pick?
The Athletic: Craig Custance reports New York Rangers general manager Jeff Gorton is open to peddling one of his three first-round picks leading up to the opening day of the 2018 NHL Draft. Gorton tells Custance he open to moving a first-rounder if he can get a good young player in return.
Will the San Jose Sharks re-sign Evander Kane?
Mercury News: Since joining the San Jose Sharks in a NHL trade-deadline deal with the Buffalo Sabres, Evander Kane, 26, has been a terrific addition to their offensive attack. In nine games with San Jose he has 10 points, including a recent four-goal effort against Calgary. The Sharks have $59.5-million invested in 19 players, the Sharks have sufficient cap space to re-sign Kane if they choose. He’d be a solid consolation prize if the club loses out in a potential bidding war for center John Tavares.
