This week in NHL trade rumors, some fascinating names have been thrown around, including Dougie Hamilton and Ryan Miller.
As the month of October is ending, NHL teams are already starting to plan for the trade deadline. Some teams might not even wait until the trade deadline to try to get what they want. There have been some curious names being whispered in trade rumors, especially with certain teams struggling and needing to add at a position.
The likelihood of Dougie Hamilton being traded is low. However, his name is still getting thrown around quite a bit. How likely is it he gets traded and who should be interested in him? Even the name of Ryan Miller has been heard recently as the Los Angeles Kings need a goalie. Should the Vancouver Canucks be willing to listen?
One of the more intriguing free agent forwards next summer is Martin Hanzal of the Arizona Coyotes. Extension talks haven’t gotten the two sides anywhere, so it’s likely he will be traded. Who would be the best fits for him? Might the Anaheim Ducks trade Cam Fowler to the Toronto Maple Leafs? Finally, the Chicago Blackhawks need to add to their forward depth and trading a promising young defenseman might be the only way for them to address it.
5. Cam Fowler to the Toronto Maple Leafs?
Anaheim Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler is no stranger to trade rumors. The reason for this isn’t production, he’s been quite solid for the Ducks. However, with next summer’s expansion draft, the Ducks might need to trade Fowler as opposed to lose him for nothing. Recently, he has been linked to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Fowler is left-handed, so he might need to play on his off-side since the Leafs already have Morgan Rielly and Jake Gardiner. But he might be able to be had for cheap and the Leafs will have two second round picks in the 2017 NHL Draft.Next: 4. Trevor van Riemsdyk on the trade block?
