Are the Hawks looking at Tomas Fleischmann?
ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun speculated last week that Montreal could be looking to deal a handful of veteran players, including left wing Tomas Fleischmann.
Fleischmann isn’t the hottest name on the trade block, but he could be a fit in Chicago. The 31-year-old inked a one-year deal with the Canadiens in September and has put up decent numbers this season, scoring 19 points in 55 games. Plus, at $750,000, he’s cap friendly.
It’s not for certain that Bowman is there to scout a Montreal player, but with Nashville right in the middle of the playoff hunt, the Predators are likely to be buyers, not sellers at the deadline.
