In this podcast episode, Elliotte Friedman reports that Mackenzie Blackwood is “available” for trade. He also describes a Ty Smith trade as “not impossible.” Listen for yourself here at 25:20 in: [Sportsnet]

Emily Kaplan mentions the Devils here: “There was a potential trade that sent (Brock) Boeser to the New Jersey Devils, and it involved Pavel Zacha. However I was told those talks broke down because neither side could make it work. Boeser is still in play, but I wouldn’t be shocked if Vancouver decides to punt a decision until this summer.” [ESPN]
