With the trade deadline starting to heat up with many trades occurring on Wednesday, we saw lots of traction regarding forwards and defenceman finding new addresses, the goalie market is yet to open.

An insider dropped a bombshell earlier this morning, bringing up a potential trade regarding last season's Vezina winner.

Ullmark trade talks heating up according to insider



According to insider Pierre Lebrun, if the Devils can't acquire their main target, Jacob Markstrom, there is reason to believe that Boston Bruins goaltender Linus Ullmark may make the rounds on the Devils list.


Devils goalie options: preferred route is still to get Markstrom out of Calgary, or does an Ullmark trade with Boston make sense. If that can't be, then wait until summer to fix the net but in meantime, maybe a stopgap measure. Rental Kevin Lankinen in Nash as an option?


It has been clear this season that the Boston Bruins have Jeremy Swayman listed as their number one goaltender , rightfully so as he is much younger then Ullmark. Keep in mind the Bruins can benefit from a Linus Ullmark trade as they can use those assets to acquire a number one centre. When we think of potential centreman on the Bruins radar, Elias Lindholm comes to mind who has been linked with the Bruins recently.
