Golden Knights to trade Nate Schmidt to Panthers to make room for Alex Pietrangelo?

  Golden Knights to trade Nate Schmidt to Panthers to make room for Alex Pietrangelo? Vegas is expected to send defenseman Nate Schmidt, and his contract of five years at $5.95M, to the Florida Panthers. No word yet on the return. © Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Vegas needs salary-cap space, and it looks like Nate Schmidt is expendable for the team. Schmidt has been a big component for the Golden Knights since their inception. The blueliner was one of the Golden Knights' selections in the expansion draft and has been one of their top minutes-eaters since joining the team.

Interim head coach Romeo Crennel acknowledged the possibility of that creating a distraction for the team ’s players when he spoke to reporters on Monday. I’ve talked to them and tried to reassure them that I’m not looking to trade guys,” Crennel said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

The Texans have gone off the rails at 0-4, and even with Bill O'Brien gone, it's hard to see a bright future for the franchise .

The Houston texans have the resume of prototypical sellers at the trade deadline. Not only is Houston sitting at 1-6 -- tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars in last place in the AFC South -- but it is riding out the season with an interim head coach and general manager after the firing of Bill O'Brien earlier this month.

No one on the Texans roster appears safe except Deshaun Watson, who signed a four-year contract up to $160 million in September -- so he's not going anywhere. The rest of the roster is up in the air, as the Texans need to fix some of the damage O'Brien caused over the last few seasons.

Hurricanes reportedly exploring trade options for defenseman Jake Gardiner

  Hurricanes reportedly exploring trade options for defenseman Jake Gardiner Gardiner does hold a seven-team no-trade clause and is under a contract that is actually back-loaded. Though his cap hit may only be $4.05M per season, the actual money owed reaches $12.55M. That’s not a huge difference but still could be one that makes a trade harder in the current financial landscape.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Even though the Texans should sell, Crennel is trying to tell his players Houston isn't looking to trade anyone. That could be coach speak ahead of the upcoming deadline, but Houston's market will certainly open up as the Texans enter their bye week.

"I think players like the security of knowing that they're going to be on the team and they don't have to uproot family and move and stuff like that," Crennel said Monday. "So, with this situation the way it is, I think that it might be more on their mind this year than it would be any other year. I've talked to them and tried to reassure them that I'm not looking to trade guys, but human nature is human nature. Until the trade deadline passes, some guys are going to be worried and thinking about it."

Rangers could move newly-extended Tony DeAngelo to bolster left side

  Rangers could move newly-extended Tony DeAngelo to bolster left side The New York Rangers locked up restricted free agent defenseman Anthony DeAngelo to a two-year pact Thursday, making a lopsided group of blueliners on the right side.With Jacob Trouba, Fox and DeAngelo on the right side, the Rangers would be better off if one player moves to the left, which isn’t as strong with Jack Johnson, Ryan Lindgren and Brendan Smith leading the way, not exactly what you’re looking for on one side. The Rangers then might have an opening to bring in top prospect Nils Lundqvist, the 28th overall pick in 2018, to join the team’s top six after his SHL season ends in early March, although they would still have to convince him to sign his entry-level deal.

Crennel seemed to imply the Texans are taking calls on some of their players, as there is talent on the roster contending teams would like to acquire. Receivers Will Fuller and Kenny Stills are entering the final year of their contracts, along with quarterback A.J. McCarron and cornerbacks Gareon Conley and Vernon Hargreaves. Houston favorite J.J. Watt also has a year left on his deal after the season.

The Texans are projected to be $7.4 million over the salary cap this offseason (per Over The Cap), and have seven picks in the 2021 draft -- none in the first two rounds and just one in the first three rounds. Houston will have to get high draft picks back if the Texans wish to compete in 2021, so selling players to the highest bidder is arguably the best move.

"I think because of the situation other teams might look and feel like that we are vulnerable and we might be willing to make a trade for guys," Crennel said. "But like I told the players, I'm trying to win games and I'm not trying to trade players. So, I want to keep as many good players as I can. Now, I know the record doesn't say that we are very good, and we are what the record says we are, but we do have some talent.

"I think other teams realize that and they would like to get their hands on it. But most of the time in this situation, they're offering peanuts and not offering legitimate trade value."

Free-agent profile: Sami Vatanen .
Much like fellow countryman and unsigned free agents Mikael Granlund, Sami Vatanen is getting next to no attention on the open market so far this off-season. The 29-year-old defenseman, ranked No. 14 overall in PHR’s Top 50 UFA’s, is an established two-way defenseman with nearly 200 points in his eight-year NHL career, but seemingly can’t find a suitable offer in the stagnant, flat cap market. Unfortunately for Vatanen, recency bias looms large in the free agent market.
