CSNCalifornia.com reported yesterday that the San Jose Sharks have spoken with Ryane Clowe‘s representatives about waiving his NTC and that a deal could be done as early as today. They also reported that the potential front-runners for Clowe are the Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens, and the New York Rangers. These front-runners make sense to me. Boston is eager to make a move after losing out on Jarome Iginla and Clowe plays their kind of game. The Rangers would also be a good fit for Clowe as they also play a tough game and Montreal has been looking to get tougher which is why they are in the running. ESPN reported the price of Clowe to be a first round pick and a young prospect.

Bob Mckenzie addressed the Clowe situation this morning on twitter. He said that Clowe has not yet been asked to waive his NTC, nor has he provided a list of teams he is willing to be traded to. His agent however has been involved in talks with the Sharks about a potential landing spot for the forward. Mckenzie also said that it isn’t clear whether Clowe will be traded as a pending unrestricted free agent or with a pre-arranged contract extension.

Mckenzie expects that everyone involved will work today to advance the process but it is still unknown as to whether the trade will be imminent.
