Could the Flames be interested in Evan Rodrigues or Joe Thornton?
Flames GM Brad Treliving is still looking at making some moves. Evan Rodrigues is another free agent forward still not signed.
The Flames have 10 defensemen on one-way contracts and could move one for a forward.
Could Bode Wilde be on the move?
Stefen Rosner of NYI Hockey Now: Because Bode Wilde wouldn’t get vaccinated last season, New York Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello wouldn’t allow him to play with the team, and he ended up playing in Sweden.
NHL protocols have changed this season, but that may not be enough for the Islanders.
Wilde’s agent Allain Roy wouldn’t comment on whether he would be attending the Islanders training cap later this month.
He’s down the Islanders’ depth chart on the right side and a fresh start elsewhere may be needed. He may not have much trade value, and Lamoriello isn’t one to give a player away for free.
Wilde has a year left on his entry-level contract.
Mike Reilly may eventually get moved
The Bruins will start the season without Charlie McAvoy and Matt Grzelcyk on the blue line. Teams have called the Bruins about Reilly according to sources, but while McAvoy and Grzelcyk are out, the Bruins would just be listening.
Now, when McAvoy and Grzelcyk return, as well as Brad Marchand, the Bruins may need to move out some salary when they no longer have LTIR relief. It wouldn’t be a surprise if Reilly is the odd man out at that point.
