Kouleas: “Earlier than we are saying goodbye, something new on Trevor Zegras RFA, RFA as properly with Jamie Drysdale, or William Nylander, why is all of it so quiet?”
Pagnotta: “On Anaheim’s entrance this an enormous week as properly not simply from for the Sens and their man that RFA but additionally the Geese. Drysdale and Pinto are in the identical boat by the best way they’re each 10.2c RFAs, which implies they haven’t performed sufficient eligible video games. They don’t seem to be eligible for supply sheets due to it. Zegras is. Though I don’t suppose we’re going to see something go down that highway.
However the Geese identical to Ottawa wish to get this firmed up this week. Most likely taking a look at shorter-term offers for each of those guys. We talked a couple of potential bridge deal earlier than with Zegras. Doubtless an identical scenario with Jamie Drysdale.
He needed to battle damage final season and get better and is meant to be good to go for camp. They simply must hunker down this week and get that nailed in.”
As for Nylander properly he’s holding agency on his place.
Pagnotta: “So far as Nylander in Toronto, I imply he’s holding agency on his facet a minimum of for now. Nonetheless. And he doesn’t appear overly involved about it. So if he’s going to financial institution on himself and guess on himself and if he can put up one other 40-goal season and that sort of marketing campaign this season actually justify making $10 million plus for him whether or not that’s with Toronto or someplace else we should wait and see. Doesn’t appear to be something is an excessive amount of on the forefront with respect to an extension there.”
