Roslovic to Lemieux

Columbus Blue Jackets beat man Aaron Portzline reported that Jack Roslovic has fired his agent of over six years for reasons that sound like player advocacy:

Interestingly enough, he hired former teammate Brendan Lemieux’s father Claude as his new agent. Roslovic has one more year on his entry-level deal before he becomes a restricted free agent without arbitration rights. It makes sense that he would want to play on a line higher than the fourth line so he can make more money.

Edit:

Roslovic’s former agent has spoken (also, I read Murat’s tweet as being about ice time so...):

Myers Making Big Bucks?

According to TSN, Tyler Myers could make over $6 million a season on the open market which is too much for a third pairing defenceman. The fact that the Vancouver Canucks, Colorado Avalanche, and Dallas Stars are all teams that are attached to Myers, the Jets should let him go to their rivals and let him cripple their cap a bit.

On the other hand, why is Myers being talked about with money that high? Jake Gardiner is a far better player than Myers and it has been talked about he should be getting around $7 million or less. Why is Myers so close to him in dollar terms? Maybe Roslovic should hire Myers’ agent.

Anyways, rumours are starting to heat up including a likeable one surrounding Jacob Trouba and Nazem Kadri which is a trade that could work for all parties if they wanted it too...and Trouba would not have to sign with the Toronto Maple Leafs long-term if he didn’t want to.
