NHL Rumors: Big Update On Vladimir Tarasenko Free Agency Talk

Over the last few days, reports surfaced that the Carolina Hurricanes were set to sign Vladimir Tarasenko. However, it appears that it is not as set in stone as believed, as Andy Strickland is now reporting that Tarasenko is "still considering multiple options."

This is certainly a notable development, as it was believed that Tarasenko was heading to Carolina without a doubt. However, now with this news, we will need to keep a very close eye on the Tarasenko sweepstakes. 

Strickland did not specify which specific teams that Tarasenko is considering. We do know that the Ottawa Senators have had talks with him since free agency began. The New York Islanders have also been viewed as a possible landing spot.

Nevertheless, we will need to wait and see if Tarasenko ends up heading to Carolina or not. Until then, the best free agent available is still there for the taking.
