In case you haven’t heard the latest NHL trade rumors and news, let me tell you that there is a lot of it swirling around the various teams, and they don’t always confirm or deny all of the reports that are put forth. Most times it just takes one team to say something and the whole league seems to jump all over it. So, let’s take a look at some of the latest NHL trade rumors and news going around.
The Tampa Bay Lightning is the latest team to go on the rumor mill when it comes to trade rumors. They are rumored to be having discussions with the New York Islanders about a possible trade involving Keith Aulie. The Lightning would get a second round pick from the Islanders in the deal.
So, why would the Lightning be involved in trade rumors? Well, it may be due to Aulie’s toughness, which has been questioned by the Lightning’s coach, but more likely it is the fact that the Islanders have been the beneficiaries of the unrestricted free agent signings by other NHL teams.
What is less clear is what the Tampa Bay Lightning’s view of Aulie’s toughness is, since he is currently recovering from shoulder surgery. I am sure that management wants to see Aulie playing again this season, which will give them a chance to see what kind of player he really is.
But, the Lightning have so many good defensemen that the possibility of the Lightning getting stuck with Aulie for the balance of the season if they get him back can’t be ruled out. It will be interesting to see how management decides to handle the situation moving forward.
These NHL trade rumors and news pieces make it seem as if the battle lines have been drawn in the battle between the Philadelphia Flyers and New Jersey Devils. The rivalry is brewing and will be one of the more interesting ones to watch this season.
