Trade winds swirled around the league early on Saturday, with Florida and Pittsburgh among the teams making moves.
However, there was some local news as well:
Extremely unlikely Loui Eriksson is traded at the deadline. Expect him to stay in Boston.— Travis Yost (@travisyost) February 27, 2016
Yost is a respected analytics guru who writes for TSN.ca on occasion. He's been reporting on other things throughout the afternoon that have come to fruition, so he appears to be a pretty reliable source.
What does it mean? Hard to say. Yost isn't claiming that an Eriksson extension is close, but he's saying that he doesn't appear to be on the move.
Could the Bruins possibly be rolling the dice on signing Eriksson after the deadline passes, and risking losing him for nothing?
Monday should be fun!
