Carter Hart Update;  NHL Trade Rumors

Carter Hart Update; NHL Trade Rumors

In Friday’s edition of Bailey’s Daily, we’ll talk about the latest Philadelphia Flyers news, NHL news, stories, highlights and more from the last day.

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Danny Briere held his 2024 NHL Draft pre-draft press conference on Thursday, addressing all things NHL draft and free agency before the busy stretch of the offseason begins. One topic that came up was restricted free agents, and that group includes Carter Hart.

But, Briere says he still has no idea what he can or can’t do with Hart at this point.

Elsewhere on the Flyers roster, Cam Atkinson may or may not be back with the team next season; the next step with Cam is still undecided. If he is traded, however, a homecoming with the Columbus Blue Jackets and two other trade destinations make the most sense.

In case you missed it, a Flyers trade with the Ottawa Senators is close to being completed, although it’s unclear if that trade will be completed before, during or after the 2024 NHL Draft.

After knocking off Denver Barkey, Oliver Bonk and the London Knights in the Memorial Cup final, Montreal Canadiens prospect Owen Beck gave an exclusive interview to Montreal Hockey Now’s Marc Dumont, sharing his excitement for the upcoming season, discussing his junior career and looking forward to what’s next for him and the Habs.

The Boston Bruins are out of trade options for goaltender Linus Ullmark after the New Jersey Devils acquired Jacob Markstrom on Wednesday, and the best avenue left for Ullmark is Ottawa. But do the Senators now have the minerals to put in the horse for a goaltender of Ullmark’s caliber?

According to a report, the Colorado Avalanche are already likely to move on from center Ross Colton, who despite a strong season could become an early casualty of the salary cap before his no-holds-barred clause kicks in on July 1 .

Speaking of Markstrom and the Devils, when was the last time we saw New Jersey boast a halfway decent goaltending tandem? Markstrom and Jake Allen will fill the crease in Newark for the immediate future, and the last time the Devils had better options than them, you’d have to go back to 2013.
