Alzer got some commercial interest
David Pagnotta : When Montreal Aladner made a disclaimer, Karl Alzner from Montreal became interested. I've heard that the Dallas Stars, the Toronto Maple Leafs, the New York Islanders and the Colorado Avalanche were among the teams that reached the Canadiens. The Canadiens would have to take back a player and keep the salary.
Some teams believe that Alzner does not fit into the Canadiens system and that a change of scene could help Alzner. His salary cap and money should be meaningful to the team that works for him.
Zuccarello knows he could be on the move.
Brett Cyrgalis of NY Post : New York Rangers to UFA Mats Zuccarello He knows he was traded before the NHL trading deadline on February 25.
"Trade seems most likely to be," said Zuccarello, according to Kvatningen's translation, which was sent to The Post and contained the audio file published online. "I think I'm prepared for that. Basically, I'm just waiting for it to happen. To be honest, it is difficult to be there. "
Zuccarello had a groin injury. He said for a while that he wanted to stay in New York, but that could change.
"I've always said that I always just want to play for the New York Rangers," said Zuccarello. I thought about it … I'm getting older and maybe I could use a new spark.
Jeff Gorton's G-Rangers could sign a UFA colleague Kevin Hayes, who signs a long-term deal instead of trading it.
For the Rangers, it would be a great offer to move Chris Kreider.
The Rangers could move defenders Adam McQuaid and Freddy Claesson.
"It's going to be a very sad day, of course," said Zuccarello Potential Trade. "I've been here for a long time and know everyone in the organization so it will be very sad. But I also think that it can be a positive thing if it happens. You can get a spark when you try something new. "
