Two bits of news: Tomas Tatar has switched agents, and is believed to be leaning somewhere east. Also: Jeff is a horrible singer.

Tomas Tatar’s name is still a buzzword in Montreal following his years with the Sainte-Flanelle. He has just spent the last two campaigns with the New Jersey Devils, where he scored 78 points, including 20 goals.
I’m sure that’s what cut the ties between the New York team and the Slovak’s clan. Before the playoffs began, I expected him to sign with the Devils, but the spring waltz changed everything.
Since then, he’s had no takers, but recently made an important decision. As Elliotte Friedman reports, he recently changed agents. In the same vein, the Sportsnet journalist mentioned that it looks like Tatar will end up with an Eastern team.
It would be a great opportunity to get back on track, although I find it hard to believe that he hasn’t found a buyer. His inability to score in the playoffs is certainly a problem, but he could be a great addition to any team aspiring to the playoffs.
Tyler Myers traded?

Reporter Travis Jost reminded us that his current contract, which expires in 2024, is mostly paid for by bonuses. With the last of Myers’ contract now paid off, there would only be $1 million in real money left for the defenseman.
Gabriel Landeskog back for the 2024 series?
While the players, including Cale Makar, admitted that the extended break benefited them in order to better prepare for next season, Landeskog’s unexpected reinforcement could come in time for the playoffs.

According to Colorado general manager Chris MacFarland, you wouldn’t bet against the Swedish player for the playoffs. He mentions that his rehabilitation is going very well and that anything is still possible.
