Report: Hurricanes and Elias Lindholm Still Far Apart on Contract Extension

Report: Hurricanes and Elias Lindholm Still Far Apart on Contract Extension

Lindholm’s days in Carolina may be numbered. According to TSN’s Pierre LeBrun, the Carolina Hurricanes restricted free agent forward Elias Lindholm aren’t currently seeing eye-to-eye on a contract extension. “Let’s be honest, if they don’t get him signed, I believe the marching orders from owner Tom Dundon are to trade Elias Lindholm,” LeBrun said. “We talked about interest from the Calgary Flames last night. That interest remains. But there are a lot of teams keeping an eye on him. Jeff Skinner is the most likely traded, but Elias Lindholm because he’s 23 and a centre who...

Playing devil’s advocate for trading Jeff Skinner

Playing devil’s advocate for trading Jeff Skinner

A parting of ways between the Hurricanes and their longest-tenured player could benefit both parties. If you’re a Carolina Hurricanes fan and you haven’t made the bizarre decision to spend the past couple months living under a rock, odds are you’ve heard the rumors that the team’s longest-tenured skater will be playing elsewhere next season. The trade talk all over hockey media around Jeff Skinner has, understandably, upset many Canes fans. Skinner is probably the team’s best natural goal scorer, and is in the top 20 in goals scored in the league since 2016-17. Brett did a great...

Maple Leafs trade target: Jeff Skinner

Maple Leafs trade target: Jeff Skinner

The Toronto native is a high-end scorer, and the Leafs should try to add him to their long-term future. Jeff Skinner is available, and the Leafs should be all over the opportunity to acquire him. Carolina is looking for a first round pick and a prospect in exchange for the 26-year old winger, reports Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic, and he’s under contract for one more season at $5.725 million. As a Markham native, Skinner would be given the chance to play for his hometown team, and the Maple Leafs could look to extend his contract rather than paying the older, and perhaps more expensive,...

Trading Jeff Skinner Would be a Big Mistake

Trading Jeff Skinner Would be a Big Mistake

Skinner’s name has, yet again, entered the rumor mill. If it is the last time that happens, it could mean that the Canes made a huge mistake. Taylor Hall, Artemi Panarin, Filip Forsberg, Phil Kessel, Nathan MacKinnon, Mark Scheifele, Max Pacioretty, and Blake Wheeler all have one thing in common. None of them have scored as many goals as Jeff Skinner over the past two seasons. It’s okay, though, because they aren’t alone. Only 18 players have outscored #53 since the start of the 2016-17 season. Another thing that those eight players above have in common? Their names aren’t making...
