The Toronto Maple Leafs have been operating under the belief that this is their year.The talent level has increased quite a bit in the last three seasons Jesper Bratt Jersey Kids , and adding free-agent prize John Tavares during the summer has upped the excitement level considerably for an Original Six team that has been yearning for its first Stanley Cup since 1967.It has been a strange start to the season for the Maple Leafs at 9-5-0, second behind the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference. It's a strange start because they are 3-5-0 at home and a perfect 6-0-0 on the road.While the talent level is high, it could be quite a bit higher if William Nylander was in uniform. Theforward held out of camp throughout the month of September in a contract dispute, and he has shown a combination of resolve and stubbornness as he has continued to stay away from the team.Holdouts of this length are unusual in the NHL, and the Leafs could use a 22-year-old right wing who has scored 61 points in back-to-back seasons.The Leafs need to find a resolution before the league's December 1 deadline for signing Group 2 free agents, so a trade is a legitimate possibility if both sides remain unwilling to give. NHL insider Elliotte Friedman reported on a Hockey Night in Canadasegment that the Carolina Hurricanes are "all-in" when it comes to acquiring Nylander.Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky has made it clear that he does not want to remain with the team, according to a report from Friedman on Sportsnet radio.Bobrovsky has not been on good terms with the team since the summer, when he blew off a meeting with general manager Jarmo Kekalainen. Friedman reported that Bobrovsky wants out of Columbus, but that is not necessarily what the team wants because he is one of the best goaltenders in the league when he is happy and on his game.If the two sides can't figure out their issues, the New York Islanders may be the team that has the best chance of working out a deal for the reigning Vezina Trophy winner.This looks like another year where the Detroit Red Wings will be rebuilding. If that is the case Leo Komarov Jersey Womens , the Red Wings could trade some of their bigger-name players for young talent or draft picks.One of the players who could be traded is forward Gustav Nyquist, who will be a free agent at the end of the season.Rather than lose Nyquist in the offseason, he could be traded for future assets just as Brendan Smith was traded in 2017 and Tomas Tatar was moved last year.Nyquist has a no-trade contract, but he could be moved if he agrees to it."It's a business and that's part of the game,"Nyquist said, per Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press. "I'm sure my name will pop up. It will be a little bit new situation for me because this is my last year of the contract. It's different, but it's nothing I've thought about. Probably more as I get closer to the deadline. We'll see." NEW YORK (AP) — No matter where they are in the standings, the New York Rangers were just happy to finally get a win.Vladislav Namestnikov snapped a tie in the third period, and the Rangers beat the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on Saturday night to stop a six-game slide.“We’ve got 14 games to go and you can feel it in that locker room, winning feels way better than losing.” Rangers coach David Quinn said.“Obviously our situation is what it is Womens Kyle Palmieri Jersey , but we want to win hockey games.”New York (28-28-12) hadn’t won since beating New Jersey in their previous meeting on Feb. 23. It is well off the pace in the wild-card race in the Eastern Conference.Ryan Strome had two goals and an assist for the Rangers, and Libor Hajek scored his first NHL goal. Namestnikov also had two assists, and Henrik Lundqvist made 22 saves.Quinn said after the game that Hajek has a separated shoulder. He didn’t have a timeline for his return.Damon Severson and Blake Coleman scored first-period goals for New Jersey, which has lost six in a row. Cory Schneider made 37 saves.“Yeah, it’s frustrating,” Schneider said. “Being up 2-0 after one, having a lead going into the third to lose in regulation is tough. My job is to be one better and I wasn’t able to.”The Devils carried a 2-1 lead into the third, but Hajek got a cross-ice pass from Strome and wristed a shot past Schneider on the glove side at 1:29.Namestnikov then made it 3-2 when he scored his 10th of the season at 13:25 off a pass from Mika Zibanejad. Strome added an empty-netter.“It’s positive that we finally closed a game out,” Namestnikov said. “I thought we deserved better in those overtime losses against Washington and Tampa, but hockey goes that way sometimes and I’m just we got the two points tonight.”Trailing 2-0 after the first http://www.officialbluejackets.com/authentic-adidas-david-savard-jersey , the Rangers controlled play for most of the second and got on the board late in the period.Kevin Shattenkirk’s shot from just inside the blue line was deflected by Strome, who scored his 12th at 18:22. The Rangers outshot the Devils 14-2 for the period, but Schneider was sharp for New Jersey.“I thought the whole second period we were really good,” Strome said. “We did a good job in the second of our pushback. We weren’t great in the first. We had a good second period and kind of took the game over.”The Devils got off to a fast start.First, Severson’s shot from the right point got past Lundqvist for his 10th of the season 16:26 into the first. Then New Jersey ended its lengthy power-play drought when Coleman deflected Will Butcher’s shot for his 19th of the season at 19:49. The Devils had come up empty on their previous 25 power plays.NOTES: Devils F Travis Zajac reached 500 points with his first-period assist. He is the fourth player in franchise history to reach the mark. … New Jersey, which is without several forwards because of injuries, recalled forwards Eric Tangradi and Brandon Gignac from Binghamton of the AHL. … Rangers defenseman Marc Staal was scratched. … The Rangers agreed to terms with goaltender Adam Huska on an entry-level contract. He appeared in 69 games in the past three seasons with UConn. Huska was a seventh-round selection in the 2015 draft.UP NEXTDevils: Continue their six-game trip Tuesday night at Calgary.Rangers: Open four-game trip at Edmonton on Monday night.
