The DFO Rundown Ep. 282 – Pettersson’s Extension & Tanev’s Moving To Dallas

      Published -

      We finally got news! It was a wild Wednesday night in the NHL with two big stories breaking within minutes of each other. First, Frank broke the news that the Vancouver Canucks and Elias Pettersson are closing in on a fresh long-term extension that will keep the Swedish star in Vancouver through the bulk of his career.

      Frank talked about the expected value of the deal and why getting this done now is so significant for both the Canucks and Pettersson.

      We also got another move involving one of Frank’s top trade targets as the Calgary Flames moved veteran defenseman Chris Tanev to the Dallas Stars for a handful of draft picks and a prospect. Jason and Frank talked about this deal from both sides, which led to some talk about the Stars being one of the most complete teams in the NHL. Gregor thinks they might have the best blueline in the NHL.

      Frank also talked about the future of Noah Hanifin as the Flames sell-off continues. Who’s in the market? What could the cost be? He answered those questions.

      They also talked about the LA Kings deadline plans, speculated about what the Golden Knights could get up to, and Gregor chimed in on a couple of teams in the Eastern playoff race.

      Tyler also swung by for a new edition of Buy or Sell delivered by DoorDash. He asked the guys about how many pieces the Capitals could sell, where Jake Guentzel could land, and the Canucks deadline plans.
