Hello, and welcome to yet another installment of NHL Rumors! As each day passes, the buzz continues to increase and become more widespread.
It provides managers with additional time to plan and prepare for the second half of the season, which is beneficial given the celebrations that will take place during the All-Star game.
The New York Rangers and the Ottawa Senators are the subject of the daily rumors that circulate.
The Rangers are reportedly accepting calls on Kaapo Kakko, according to a rumor that was reported by Darren Dreger on Insider Trading.
Fans of the Rangers were ecstatic when the team selected Kaapo Kakko with the second overall choice. It seems like only a short time ago that they experienced this.
Adding a player of that level to the core group that was already in place is a significant step forward. Kakko, on the other hand, has not been able to live up to the expectations that were placed on him prior to his selection as the second overall player.
Although he had a career year when he scored 18 goals and scored 40 points during the 2022-23 season, he has not been very successful this season.
There is no culpability on Kakko's part because he has been sidelined for a portion of the season due to an injury. On the other hand, he has scored five goals and had six points in 28 games. It is simply not good enough, and the squad needs more from him in order to score additional points from a deeper position.
