In today’s NHL rumors posted on The Hockey Writers, I run through the trade rumors coming out of Edmonton involving Cam Talbot and speculation that head coach Ken Hitchcock had offered to resign his position as head coach. I then travel over to the New York Islanders where the talk is about Brock Nelson staying and Ilya Kovalchuk potentially coming over. Finally, I cite a report by TSN’s Bob McKenzie who comments on the trade rumors out of Florida surrounding Jonathan Huberdeau.

It is being reported by TSN, there’s a chance Oilers goaltender “Cam Talbot could be heading East ahead of February 25’s trade deadline.”

Latest on Jonathan Huberdeau Rumors

Some talk out of Florida suggests Jonathan Huberdeau might be a trade candidate to make room for Artemin Panarin and Sergei Bobrovsky. Bob McKenzie, via NBCSN and commented:

“I believe that Huberdeau has been told by the Panthers, ‘We’re not trying to trade you. We’re not shopping you.’ You never get the full thing where a team says, ‘Under no circumstances will we ever trade you,’ because you know sometimes it just needs to happen.
