TSN insider Pierre LeBrun is always aware of all hockey events. He keeps his hand on his pulse and is one of the first to tell interesting details from behind the NHL’s scene. This time, the sports commentator shared insider information about possible hockey transfers in the off-season.
About a possible exchange of Patrick Laine
Pierre Lebrun shared information about a possible exchange of Patrick Laine.
“Rumors that Patrick may not come to the training camp if the team administration did not exchange him have been circulating for a long time. So I decided to ask his agents if it’s true.
It turned out that these rumors are far from the truth. The hockey player did not threaten anyone, and he did not ask to be exchanged.
Currently, negotiations on the exchange of a player are still underway, as the place of a player in the team has been discussed continuously over the past few years. Therefore, its exchange will be beneficial to everyone. The agents do not hide that they are at the stage of negotiations with Winnipeg’s general manager.
I also spoke to Kevin [Cheveldayoff]. He convinced me that Laine remains an essential player for the team. Therefore, I think that they will not change the player just like that. Otherwise, it would not be very sensible for Winnipeg. The parties understand what this situation can lead to, ”LeBrun said.
About Boston captain Zdeno Chara
LeBrun said that Boston captain Zdeno Chara is considering continuing a career, citing the player’s agent.
The Bruins are a priority option for the 43-year-old Slovak, but other NHL teams are also interested. The player’s decision about the future is also related to the next season’s format, which season has not yet determined. The expected start date is January 1st. Chara has spent the past 14 seasons in Boston and won the 2011 Stanley Cup with the team.
