- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Several teams were surprised that Alex Edler didn’t get traded to the Hurricanes for No. 5 pick at the draft. The Flyers, Lightning, Senators, and Oilers are all interested in Edler. He has a cap hit of $5 million through 2018-19.
Several teams are looking at goaltenders, so Ryan Miller could still be moved.
Roberto Luongo had lunch with Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini on Sunday in Florida.
The Oilers-Flyers talk on Braydon Coburn isn’t dead. The Flyers could use Coburn as a bargaining chip in Bobby Ryan talks.
Sharks Dan Boyle could be on the move. He’s in the last year of his deal, $6.6 million cap hit and it’s believed he submitted a list of eight teams back in February. The Senators are interested if the Sharks eat some of the salary.
Don’t expect Paul Stastny to be traded.
- Elliotte Friedman of CBC: Free agent sleeper picks: Andrew Ference and the Red Wings, Rob Scuderi and the Penguins.
Anton Khudobin could be a nice fit in Edmonton, or possibly the Islanders.

What people were saying at the draft on Bobby Ryan trade rumors: “If he gets traded, it’s because you’ll look at the deal and understand why.”
