In today's rumors of the NHL, there is a little confusing construction about Pavel Datsiuk who returns to the NHL, but is it correct? There are updates about St. Louis Blues and how serious they are in the store, where senators are with Matt Duchene and trading options for New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs.
Datsiuk Back to NHL?
Bob McKenzie tweeted there was talk about how Pavel Datsiuk returned to the NHL. This return could be in the next season. But agent Datsik Dan Milstein said with rumors: "Every year we sit and talk about options, but (returning to the NHL) is not something he entertained."
Bob McKenzie noticed that he had in mind, Datsiu's rights are currently owned by Arizona Coiotes. I would not be returning to join the Red Wings if he decided to return. On July 1 he became an unlimited free agent.

The latest on St. Louis Blues
St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong works on phones trying to make a trade, but he's looking for a serious asset in exchange for big-name players. Those who set the price are confusing GM how many blues want to change direction. Teams are wondering about players such as Colton Paraiko, Alek Pietrangelo and Vladimir Tarasenko, and it's not like confrontation. The GMs expect that these players will get nothing, but the query is very high.
Bruce Garrioch of the Sun Ottawa writes:
Yes he did [Doug Armstrong] ready to discuss any name on the club's list, but when the earthquake shakes his return requests are not considered real … "They have significantly exceeded and you have to have ownership support when you try to change the course as they are," said the executive director league on Monday. "Where they are, they have to sell." There is no way that Blues wants to retreat or rebuild this year. No chance.

Senators need a decision on the Spirit
Garrioch also writes that senators in Ottawa need to know from Matt Duchen what his plan is. He writes: "While Dusen has expressed a desire to stay with Ottawa, the organization will have to get an indication whether it wants to test the unlimited market or not before the February 25 trading date." Garrioch adds that CEO Pierre Dorion twice face to face with Duhoven agent Pat Brisson and both sides hope that the job will end, but it is still waiting.
It has always been speculated that Duhene will be part of a group of players who are leaving Ottawa and testing the free agent market in an attempt to get the most money. It's still probably the case, but Senators seem to want to keep Dusen.

Shopping options for Maple Leafs
While GM Kyle Dubas said he would not believe he would hire a significant way in the market for Maple Leafs, it's hard to imagine a scenario in which a team can improve their chances of opposing the Stanley Cup by adding a player that will be shorter by the end of the season and does not affect the limit earnings in any season after this. Craig Button from the TSN has issued several names that Toronto Maple Leaf might want to consider with $ 6 million in the pay room this season.
Button says three potential defense leagues from Maple Leaf could have an interest in Alek Edler, Niklas Kronvall or Ben Lovejoi. Forward, they may appear to add a & # 39; weight player & # 39; such as Vaine Simmonds, Micheal Ferland or Trevor Levis.
Possible moves for the New York Rangers
James O'Brien of NBC Sports is studying the possible moves of New York Rangers that have led to a commercial run this season. It suggests that Mats Zuccarello and Kevin Haies are looking to watch for their contracts that have expired, and Chris Kreider and Vladislav Josmenikov could be appealing to the teams fighting for the playoffs. He also offered the possibility of moving the goalkeeper Henrik Lundquist, although he admits that this is too big a scenario.
