Several supporters of the Canadian have already started to worry for the future of Brendan Gallagher, who could become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season 2020-2021. Having demonstrated his desire to win absolutely, some believe that he might prefer to leave Montreal rather than accept a contract extension.
In the event that the Gallagher test well and the free agent market in the summer of 2021, other attackers of renown (all currently aged 27 years of age as the valiant player’s HP) could find themselves in a similar situation, failing to reach a new agreement with their respective team.
Gallagher would therefore not be the only striker coveted on the market. In addition to the Quebec Phillip Danault, his faithful teammate in the Canadian, here are five other players that are comparable that would be of interest to several training courses:
It would be very surprising that the Colorado Avalanche would not be able to agree on a contract extension with their captain Gabriel Landeskog by 1 July 2021. However, the Swedish 27-year-old is definitely a player of impact. In 2018-2019, Landeskog had his best production with 75 points, including 34 goals, in 73 parts.
The rumors have often sent Ryan Nugent-Hopkins far from Edmonton. Could he leave the Oilers through the free agent market? If this is the case, Nugent-Hopkins has something to interest many clubs. The first choice in total during the draft of 2011 is 27 years old. He scored 61 points in 65 games this season.
When he is in health, Jaden Schwartz is part of the elite. During the last playoffs, striker 27-year-old has greatly aided the Blues in St. Louis in their conquest of the Stanley Cup. He had actually scored 12 goals in 26 matches.
In his first season in the national League, the Russian Nikita Gusev in fact enough to guarantee a bright future. He got 44 points in 61 games with the New Jersey Devils. His two-year contract for $ 9 million will expire at the end of the next campaign. This former star of the KHL at the age of 27.
May be less dramatic, Tanner Pearson, however, could win an interesting contract on the free agent market. Having played several seasons with the Los Angeles Kings to begin his career, Pearson, 27 years old, knows a certain outbreak, this season, with the Vancouver Canucks.
