NHL Rumor Roundup: Jason Zucker’s days with Wild numbered after near-trade to Flames

first_imgShortly after the deadline, however, TSN’s Darren Dreger reported the Flames came close to acquiring Minnesota Wild winger Jason Zucker. The Athletic’s Michael Russo said the deal would’ve sent winger Michael Frolik and a draft pick to the Wild in return for Zucker. Frolik has a partial no-trade clause but the Wild were not on his “no” list.Russo speculated Zucker’s contract may have been difficult for the Flames to absorb. He’s signed through 2022-23 with an annual cap hit of $5.5 million. For whatever reason, no trade call was made and nothing was sent to the league’s central registry before the deadline.That Zucker was close to going to Calgary raises questions about his future in Minnesota. Since mid-January, Wild general manager Paul Fenton has shaken up his core forwards, shipping Nino Niederreiter to Carolina for Victor Rask, Charlie Coyle to Boston for Ryan Donato and Mikael Granlund to Nashville for Kevin Fiala.Fenton re-signed Zucker last summer to his current contract but the 27-year-old is performing well below last season’s 33 goals and 64 points. With the Wild struggling through the first half of the season, the GM felt his roster revamp was in order.Since his recent moves, the Wild has won five of their last six games entering Tuesday’s tilt with the Nashville Predators and still cling to a wild card spot in the Western Conference. Should they remain hot down the stretch and clinch a playoff berth, perhaps Fenton will decide against further roster tinkering this summer. Then again, missing the postseason, or another opening-round exit, could convince Fenton to keep shaking things up — maybe revisiting the Flames interest in Zucker once the playoffs are overs.If Fenton wants to trade Zucker this summer, he’ll have a limited window for unfettered movement. The winger’s modified no-trade clause kicks in July 1, limiting potential trade destinations.Larsson to Toronto?On June 26, 2016, the Edmonton Oilers shocked the hockey world by shipping left wing Taylor Hall to the New Jersey Devils straight up for defenseman Adam Larsson. Following last week’s trade deadline, the Edmonton Journal’s David Staples noted a report out of Boston claiming the Oilers discussed a deal that would’ve sent Larsson to the Toronto Maple Leafs.The rumor had the Oilers and Leafs considering a larger deal that would’ve sent Larsson to Toronto with right wing Connor Brown heading to Edmonton. However, there were a lot of moving pieces and nothing came of it.Staples, however, cited Oilers insider Bob Stauffer’s claim that Larsson’s name never came up in any of the club’s trade discussions.  Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reports the Oilers and Leafs discussed a swap of Brown for defenseman Matt Benning but that fell through. He also confirms sources saying Larsson’s name never came up.NHL trade deadline winners, losers: Flames go home empty-handedIf the Oilers were to move Larsson they’ll certainly want more than a depth forward like Brown in return. Given their limited depth in skilled blueliners, it’ll take considerably more (perhaps a first-line right wing) to tempt them into moving him.Kings Set High Asking Price for ToffoliThe Los Angeles Kings were among the notable sellers leading up to this year’s trade deadline. Over the course of the season, they sent Tanner Pearson to Pittsburgh for Carl Hagelin, peddled Hagelin to Washington and dealt Jake Muzzin to Toronto, Nate Thompson to Montreal and Oscar Fantenberg to Calgary.Right wing Tyler Toffoli was thought to be another Kings trade candidate. A versatile two-way forward with three 40-plus point seasons on his resume, the 26-year-old was rumored to be drawing interest around the league. Can’t get enough NHL rumors? Lyle Richardson’s Rumor Roundup column serves as a one-stop guide to the latest rumblings around the league.Zucker Next Out Of Minnesota?The Calgary Flames raised some eyebrows with limited activity at last week’s NHL trade deadline. Rumored to be in the market for a top-six right wing, the Flames instead acquired depth defenseman Oscar Fantenberg from the Los Angeles Kings. Toffoli passed the deadline without being moved, probably because of the Kings’ high asking price. Friedman reports they sought a first-round pick and a good prospect “at least”.Friedman also said the Kings retained Toffoli in hopes he’ll regain his 30-goal form. He’s under contract through 2019-20 and due to become an unrestricted free agent next summer. That could still make him a tempting trade target this summer if someone is willing to meet the Kings’ price.last_img read more

Bayern blitz leaves Wenger with nowhere to hide

first_imgWith their Premier League title hopes in tatters and even a top four finish far from guaranteed, Wenger’s 184th Champions League match as Arsenal boss may well prove to be his last as speculation grows that he will terminate his 21-year reign at the end of a wretched season.Having restored Alexis Sanchez to his team despite reports the Arsenal forward wants to leave after being dropped for Saturday’s loss at Liverpool, it was a sign of the misery to come for Wenger when Danny Welbeck was taken ill in the pre-match warm-up, forcing Olivier Giroud into the line-up.Arsenal would have to make history to go through as no team in the Champions League era had overturned a four-goal deficit and many Gunners fans gave them no chance judging by the swathes of empty red seats around the Emirates.– Embarrassing –Even the stay-aways wouldn’t have predicted such an embarrassing loss when Walcott struck in the 20th minute.Taking possession wide on the right flank, Walcott advanced unchecked by the ponderous Bayern defence and, from an acute angle, he unloaded a powerful strike that flashed over Manuel Neuer’s unconvincing attempted save and into the roof of the net.Walcott had a penalty appeal turned down after Xabi Alonso caught the winger and he was close to a second goal when he surged onto Shkodran Mustafi’s pass before firing into the side-netting.But Giroud, unmarked eight yards out, wastefully headed over from Aaron Ramsey’s cross early in the second half, and that would prove Arsenal’s final chance.When Lewandowski got behind Koscielny in the 55th minute, the Arsenal defender’s panicked response was to trip the Pole, conceding a penalty and earning himself a red card.Lewandowski picked himself up to send David Ospina the wrong way with a clinical spot-kick and the Emirates immediately fell into anarchy.Faced with an inevitable exit, Wenger retreated to the dug out as insults rained down on him from frustrated fans, and his players waved the white flag as well.Fittingly, Bayern’s second goal in the 68th minute came about after Sanchez was caught in possession on the edge of his own penalty area, with Robben gleefully picking the Chilean’s pocket before slotting past Ospina.That opened the floodgates and Costa curled home in the 78th minute before Vidal punished woeful defending to make it four two minutes later.With Arsenal’s players just waiting to be put out of their misery, Vidal waltzed through to make it five in the 85th minute and Wenger’s agony was complete. London, United Kingdom | AFP | Bayern Munich condemned Arsene Wenger to more humiliation as 10-man Arsenal were eliminated from the Champions League with a crushing 5-1 defeat amid furious protests against the beleaguered Gunners boss on Tuesday.Aiming to stage an incredible recovery from a 5-1 first leg deficit, Wenger’s side briefly looked capable of a famous escape act when Theo Walcott opened the scoring in the first half at the Emirates Stadium.But any hopes Wenger’s recent problems would be erased in historic fashion were brutally dashed by Robert Lewandowski’s second half penalty and Laurent Koscielny’s dismissal for conceding that spot-kick.Wenger cut a forlorn figure as Arjen Robben and Douglas Costa netted before Arturo Vidal’s double fired Bayern into the quarter-finals with a 10-2 aggregate victory.It was the first time Arsenal had conceded five at the Emirates and by the closing stages, there was a funereal atmosphere on an evening that started with Arsenal fans staging a protest march calling for Wenger to quit and ended with a chorus of boos and banners held up proclaiming: “Enough is enough – Wenger out”. Share on: WhatsAppcenter_img It was yet another chastening experience in the Champions League for Wenger, who has now seen Arsenal eliminated in the last 16 for seven successive seasons.last_img read more
