— 2:14 p.m.: Per Elliotte Friedman, the Vegas Golden Knights are the favorites to land Mark Stone from the Senators. The Predators and Flames were also believed to be talking to Ottawa about a potential deal.

The full deal: Brassard and a conditional sixth RD pick in 2020 to Colorado in exchange for a third-round pick in 2020. If Brassard re-signs with Colorado, the Avs no longer get the sixth-round pick from Florida.— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) February 25, 2019

— Monday, 12:24 a.m.: According to Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, the Bruins view Flyers right wing Wayne Simmonds as their “No. 1 object” but the cost to acquire him could be a first-round pick and a prospect.
— Sunday: According to Pierre LeBrun in The Athletic, the Ottawa Senators “really covet” certain assets in the Bruins organization with an eye toward a potential deal for winger Mark Stone.
