NHL Rumor Mill: Draft and Free Agency Buzz

As the NHL draft approaches and the free agent frenzy looms, rumors are swirling throughout the league. Here's a roundup of the latest stories catching attention:
Teams Eyeing Shane Wright
Shane Wright, once pegged as a future Montreal Canadien, saw his fate take a surprising turn when the Seattle Kraken selected Juraj Slafkovský instead. Now, speculation suggests several NHL teams are eyeing a potential trade for the talented forward.
David Pagnotta of TheFourthPeriod reports that while Kraken GM Ron Francis is adamant about keeping Wright in Seattle, interest from other teams persists. Wright, currently recovering from injury while his AHL team battles in the playoffs, is viewed as a future cornerstone player. Whether any team can sway Francis remains to be seen.
Jake Guentzel: Blackhawks or Sharks?
Jake Guentzel's impending free agency has sparked speculation about his next destination. After a strong stint with the Carolina Hurricanes, Guentzel is poised to be a top target for teams seeking offensive firepower.
On The Jeff Marek Show, Elliotte Friedman hinted at a potential move to the Chicago Blackhawks for Guentzel. With ample cap space and the allure of playing alongside rising star Connor Bedard, Chicago presents a compelling option.
Meanwhile, Marek speculates whether the San Jose Sharks might enter the Guentzel sweepstakes, eyeing him as a key figure for their future plans alongside prospects like Macklin Celebrini.
Mathieu Joseph Back on the Market
Mathieu Joseph's name resurfaced in trade talks as the Ottawa Senators explore ways to manage their cap space. Despite a productive season, Joseph could be a casualty of Ottawa's financial maneuvers, according to Bruce Garrioch of TVA Sports.
With teams possibly interested in the forward's services, Ottawa may need to sweeten the deal to facilitate a move. Joseph's fate hangs in the balance as the offseason progresses.
