Speculation Notes; Jacob Trouba For Nikita Kucherov?, Red Wings Blockbuster Trade, Johnny Gaudreau

?Some interesting scenario's to think about; 

-Would the Jets and Lightning do a one-for-one swap of two RFA's in Jacob Trouba and Nikita Kucherov? Kucherov could add another young top forward to an up and coming Jets team and the Lightning would get a replacement to add to their defense. 

-The Red Wings don't project to do much this season and while they made a splash in free agency this past offseason, it's time to make a big trade to add a star player. If the Wings want to continue to contend in the coming years, they must add both a top scoring forward and a top 2 defenseman if they want to make that happen. 

-The Flames and Johnny Gaudreau are continuing to try and work out a contract for the star forward and with that being said, could he become the richest player in Calgary Flames history? I say yes, because that's what it's most likely going to take.
