Wild Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Pat Maroon

The Minnesota Wild have had a disaster of a 2023-24 season thus far, and it is starting to seem more likely that they will be sellers at the deadline because of it. If they cannot turn things around, Pat Maroon will likely be moved. Let’s discuss two teams who could look to add the veteran winger if made available now.

New York Rangers: The Rangers could use a bit more toughness in their bottom six, so they certainly could look to add Maroon this season. He would also give their bottom six more offense, which is something that it could truly use right now. 

Tampa Bay Lightning: The Lightning could consider a reunion with Maroon this season. They moved him out primarily due to salary cap trouble. However, with salary retained, he would be a great addition to their fourth line again. He would also give them more experience and a player who has three Stanley Cups on their resume again. 

We will need to wait and see if either team ends up landing Maroon during this season from here.
