Report: Winnipeg, Nashville make offer for Senators Stone

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, two teams have made the Ottawa Senators an offer for pending unrestricted free agent, Mark Stone. Both teams are the Nashville Predators and the Winnipeg Jets who are currently the front-runners along with the Calgary Flames.

The Winnipeg Jets have been mentioned all season for their will to acquire the winger and have shown their willingness to move their 1st-round as well as their prospect Jack Roslovic. but will have to sweeten the deal if Ottawa would accept that. McKenzie added that right now, the asking price for Stone is way too high and Ottawa wants a deal that's almost the same as the Duchene trade. But, instead of B and C prospects, they want an A prospect who can play once he arrives in Ottawa.

McKenzie followed up with saying that Nashville is willing to move any prospect but Eeli Tolvanen. Other teams interested are the Boston Bruins and the Calgary Flames, but before they would make a move, they want to know if Stone would be willing to sign a long-term deal once he arrives.

Ottawa will need to make a move and fast because according to Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos, due to their asking price, the market will just dry up and Stone will walk this off-season.
