The Colts are saying goodbye to their starting running back from the past three seasons, and they expect franchise quarterback Andrew Luck to be with the team when offseason workouts begin in the first week of April.
General manager Chris Ballard met with Frank Gore and told the veteran running back that the Colts don’t plan to re-sign him.
Elite Kids Cory Littleton Jersey We had a discussion. We had it multiple times during the season. Frank knows we’re at the point where we need to get younger, and I want to give Frank a chance to see what’s out there and see if he finishes in a place he wants to finish it, Ballard said Wednesday. He’s a first-ballot Hall of Fame player. He likes it when you’re honest with him.
I keep going back to the initial asking price for Evander Kane: reportedly a first-round pick, a prospect, a roster player and a conditional pick. No teams have taken a bite, because that seems astronomically high for a player like Kane, who will be an UFA in July. I think that’s the minimum for Karlsson. A first-round pick is non-negotiable.
Not only are the Rangers said to be unloading Rick Nash, but Michael Grabner and Mats Zuccarello have also been discussed as players on the block. That is going to free up a heck of a lot of scoring-line and power-play ice time for the final month-and-a-half of the season. With absolutely no reason to promote top prospects such as Filip Chytil this season, the ice time is going to be divided up internally. While players like Pavel Buchnevich have already been getting prime minutes this season, Vesey has largely been relegated to a checking line.
Mens Kenny Britt Jersey Vesey scored 16 goals last season and, based on his NCAA scoring profile, still has plenty of untapped offensive potential Josh Ferguson Womens Jersey to showcase. If the Rangers unload players at the deadline en masse, Vesey could be the top choice to finish the season as a top-line winger.
With Mike Green on the block and Trevor Daley also coveted for locker room presence by playoff teams, the Red Wings’ blue line could be getting thin next week. While Niklas Kronwall is playing plenty of power-play time, too, he’s not ideal in that role. In the meantime, the Red Wings have a 20-year-old Czech defenseman in the AHL who has been honing his North American game for the better part of two seasons.
