NHL Rumors: 3 Potential Landing Spots for Vladimir Tarasenko

After firing his agent, Vladimir Tarasenko still remains on the board. He is considering all of his options, so let's discuss three possible landing spots for the star winger.

Carolina Hurricanes: A deal between Tarasenko and the Carolina Hurricanes was reportedly in place per multiple insiders, but now it is not set in stone. However, even with this being the case, Carolina needs to still be considered a possible landing spot for him. They have a confirmed interest in him and are still among the teams in the mix.

Ottawa Senators: The Ottawa Senators are another team with confirmed interest in Tarasenko. They had discussions during the first days of free agency, and they continue to be linked to him. Thus, we should certainly keep an eye on them in the sweepstakes. 

Arizona Coyotes: Could the Arizona Coyotes be a dark horse in the Tarasenko sweepstakes? It certainly seems possible. They have been aggressive this offseason, adding Jason Zucker, Nick Bjugstad, Alex Kerfoot, and Sean Durzi. It is clear that they want to get better and with over $16 million of cap space available, they have the funds to bring in Tarasenko with ease.
