Players to watch today

Defensemen to keep an eye on today: Dmitry Kulikov (NJD), Michael Del Zotto (CBJ) and Jamie Oleksiak (DAL).

As of yesterday, I heard Dallas was still undecided on whether to move Oleksiak or not, so that’s a situation to watch.

— Emily Kaplan (@emilymkaplan) April 12, 2021

Three players with term that could move today: Ducks defenseman Josh Manson (2022 UFA, $4.1M AAV); Sabres defenseman Colin Miller (2022 UFA, $3.88M AAV); Senators center Chris Tierney (2022 UFA, $3.5M AAV).

Potential destination for Bernier

Given circumstances, I can see Bernier potentially going to the @Capitals to provide extra veteran help for their team and two young goalies. @TSNHockey @NHLNetwork @NHL #HockeyTwitter

Conor Garland on the move?

There’s buzz about Coyotes forward Conor Garland (25, RFA) and rightfully so, because he’s quite good. His availability earlier this season was greatly overstated – more about teams calling about him than being shopped. Intrigued to see if that’s changed as deadline arrives.

Golden Knights a deadline day wild card?

The Vegas Golden Knights have been lurking on a few trades so far. They were in on Hall, in on Foligno.

Not sure they end up adding -they have no cap space, so it would have to be creative -but GM Kelly McCrimmon is a wildcard to watch. Vegas has acted aggressively lately.

— Emily Kaplan (@emilymkaplan) April 12, 2021

Cap space as a trade deadline asset

Teams haven’t been shy in shopping their cap space. NJD, Det and SJ have all been used as a broker to remedy cap issues to this point. The NYR have approximately $9 mil in space and are among those clubs willing to facilitate financially complex trades as well.

Senators not done dealing?

#Sens may not be done. Will see how today goes. Names to watch are: Erik Gudbranson and Artem Anisimov. Maybe Ryan Dzingel but it sounds doubtful. Anything can change.
