The Panthers and Flyers are talking about a potential Keith Yandle and Shayne Gostisbehere trade.
The Flyers and Panthers are rumored to talk about a Yandle for Gostisbehere swap. Both offensive defensemen have big contracts and have been circling trade rumors. The Panthers want to get younger on defense, so trading a veteran defenseman like Yandle will clear space for younger guys.

The Maple Leafs are likely to trade Travis Dermott for forward depth. The Canadiens are also looking to trade Victor Mete for forward depth.
Two young defensemen could be on the move as the Canadiens and Leafs are interested to improve their forward depth. The Leafs have a plethora of left-hand defensemen including Morgan Rielly, Jake Muzzin, Mikko Lehtonen, Rasmus Sandin, and more. To make room for Lehtonen and Sandin in their top 6, Dermott could be on his way out. Mete has been developing in Montreal for a few years but hasn’t lived up to his potential. He doesn’t have much room to grow and could be traded for a fresh start.

The value of Dunn is set as a first-round pick with the Rangers, Bruins, and Jets being possible suitors for Dunn.
