With the NHL Draft coming up on June 27 and free agency opening on July 1, discussions between NHL general managers are heating up towards a busy off-season. Each day, TSN.ca provides the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. Going D-eep Ordinarily, one would assume the Edmonton Oilers were once again in prime position to improve their future, holding the third overall pick in Fridays NHL Draft. Trading down, however, might be the best course of action for the Oil - according to The Hockey News Matt Larkin. Larkin suggests that with the Florida Panthers likely to make Aaron Ekblad the first-overall pick on Friday, Edmonton would be better served to trade down from the No. 3 to acquire "an established asset" and scoop the Drafts consensus second-best blueliner, Red Deers Haydn Fleury. The Oilers have long needed to bolster their blue line and started that process by taking Darnell Nurse seventh overall last June. Larkin floats the hypothetical idea of the Oilers looking to deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs, possibly getting a young defender like Jake Gardiner along with the eighth overall selection in exchange for the third overall pick. The scenario would offer the Leafs a crack at a top-end forward like one of Sam Reinhart, Sam Bennett or Leon Draisaitl while allowing the Oilers to have a realistic shot at Fleury. Wait and C? From the sounds of it, the Montreal Canadiens may not be searching for a new captain come July 1? ESPN The Magazines Craig Custance tweeted Saturday morning that Habs captain Brian Gionta will be meeting with his agent to discuss his future options. According to Giontas agent Steve Bartlett, Gionta has "no strong inclination to leave" Montreal. A pending unrestricted free agent, Gionta is coming off a five year deal that paid him $5 million per season. The 35-year-old American scored 18 goals and 22 assists in 81 games last season. Foreign Markets Teams may look beyond North American shores on July 1 to scoop up additions for the 2014-15 season. In another tweet, Custance mentioned a couple intriguing options could be returning to the NHL, namely Kontinental Hockey League forward Leo Komarov and former first-round pick Peter Mueller. Custance mentioned that Komarov is still talking to his former team, the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs hold Komarovs NHL rights until July 1 since he opted to return to the KHL for 2013-14 while still eligible for restricted free agency in the NHL. The Finn has spent parts of each of the last five seasons with Moscow Dynamo, including a brief stint during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season. Komarov was a popular grinder and depth forward for the 2012-13 Leafs team that became the first to make the playoffs since 2003-04. Mueller, meanwhile, led the Swiss League in goals in 2013-14. He scored 24 in 49 games with Kloten. The eighth overall selection by the Phoenix Coyotes in 2006, Muellers NHL career-high was 22 goals in his 2007-08 rookie season. Clark Gillies Jersey . I kept my eyes focused up on the camera during each approach. I just tried to stay focused on my form, as I didnt know what the ball reaction was. I was quite emotional at the end. I did not actually see any of the shots in the game until I got home and watched the video. Mike Bossy Jersey . -- During Kansas shootaround on Wednesday before the Jayhawks faced Oklahoma, coach Bill Self told Wayne Selden Jr. http://www.islanderssale.com/customized/. -- Dane Fox scored his 61st and 62nd goals of the season and Brendan Gaunce had a goal and three assists as the Erie Otters downed the Kitchener Rangers 7-3 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. Denis Potvin Jersey .ca. Hello Kerry, After watching Nino Niederreiter clobber Alex Burrows with an open-ice hit on Wednesday, do you think he should have gotten more than the two minutes for interference. Billy Smith Jersey . -- Washingtons Bradley Beal seemed to make every shot he took in setting a career high with 37 points.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Detroit Pistons will try and crack the win column Saturday when they play their home opener against the Brooklyn Nets at The Palace at Auburn Hills. The Pistons opened their season with back-to-back losses in Minnesota and Denver. They play their next four in the comfy confines of The Palace. Both setbacks were winnable games, but the Pistons couldnt get it done. On Wednesday, Detroit fell, 89-79 at Denver, then dropped a tough one to the Timberwolves, 97-91. That game particularly frustrated new head coach Stan Van Gundy. You can get blown out in games. Teams can go on runs. Youre missing shots, theyre knocking down shots. That can happen, he told the teams website. But to get outcompeted and melting down and losing it and lose concentration and get discouraged, that has absolutely nothing to do with whos out there. Thats just a matter of whether or not you want to compete. The Pistons began the season with Greg Monroe serving a suspension for driving while visibly impaired. He should be back on Saturday night, but he may come off the bench. Against the Wolves, Caron Butler tallied 24 points and eight rebounds off the bench to lead the Pistons. D.J. Augustin provideed 20 points and six assists, while Andre Drummond put up 11 points and 12 boards in defeat.dddddddddddd Kentavious Caldwell-Pope also managed 11 points, followed by 10 from Josh Smith. After Butlers triple tied the game at 88-88 with 1:43 left in the fourth, Minnesota outscored Detroit 9-3 the rest of the way. We just absolutely melted down, Van Gundy said. The Nets began the 2014-15 campaign under new head coach Lionel Hollins and got blown out in Boston, 121-105, at the hands of the Celtics. Mirza Teletovic shot 8-of-11 off the bench to pace Brooklyn with 20 points in the setback. Joe Johnson and Deron Williams netted 19 apiece. Jarrett Jack scored 11 off the bench and the venerable Kevin Garnett added 10 and six rebounds. We have to play harder, said Garnett. First game, we have something to build off of. Brook Lopez missed the season-opener with a sprained foot and hes not expected to play on Saturday. The Nets open the campaign with two road tilts, but play their next four at The Barclays Center. The Pistons won three of four meetings last season, which halted a four-game winning streak by Brooklyn. Detroit has won 15 of the last 18 against the Nets as the host.
