NHL Rumors: Marner, Barrie, Duchene, Krug, Zaitsev, and Tanev
There will be offer sheets … Would the Maple Leafs take four first-round picks for Marner?

@Prospects_Watch: Pierre McGuire on TSN 1050 on offer sheets: “One GM told me, there will be offer sheets this year. I don’t know if he’s bluffing or not and he didn’t mention names, but I firmly believe there will be offer sheets and I believe Mitch Marner is one of the people that gets an offer sheet.”

@Prospects_Watch: McGuire when asked if he thinks the Toronto Maple Leafs would take four first-round picks if someone signed Mitch Marner to an offer sheet: “Yes, I do. I really, truly do.”

Rumor hits on Barrie, Duchene, Krug, Zaitsev, and Tanev

Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic: Some right-handed defenseman have already been dealt and more could be on the move.

RHD who have had their names in the rumor mill include Rasmus Ristolainen, P.K. Subban, Kris Letang, and Tyson Barrie.

Barrie has a year left at $5.5 million and an Eastern team executive said they are listening to trade offers. The Avalanche are looking for some top-six offensive help.

The Anaheim Ducks couldn’t find a trade fit for Corey Perry before his buyout.

The Columbus Blue Jackets and Arizona Coyotes had been hoping to speak with Kevin Hayes. Could the Blue Jackets throw an eight-year, $10 million per season offer at Matt Duchene to see what he thinks?

The Coyotes are monitoring the Patrick Marleau situation. has heard it may not have to be as high as Kasperi Kapanen or Andreas Johnsson. The Maple Leafs would need to retain almost 50 percent of Marleau’s contract if dealing with the San Jose Sharks.

Boston Bruins GM Don Sweeney has already said he wants to get Torey Krug signed. He has another year left at $5.25 million. If Jake Gardiner gets $7 to $7.5 million in free agency, what is Krug’s worth? If the Bruins can’t get him signed to an extension this offseason, they may have to move him.

Could Chris Tanev and Nikita Zaitsev be a part of a larger deal involving the Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs? The Canucks could be looking higher – right-handed UFA Tyler Myers or trading for right-handed Tyson Barrie.
