Hearing that Rangers and Hurricanes have been talking about a potential Brady Skjei trade but right now Carolina has cap issues so not clear where this goes…

Skjei has been rumored to be on his way out, but nothing concrete had been rumored until now. Skjei has four years left at $5.25 million on his deal. The 25 year old is currently the 1LD for the Rangers, and would be an asset for Carolina. However cap space is certainly an issue for the Hurricanes in getting this kind of deal done.
Sounds like a 1st round pick in discussions for Skjei. However, cap issues for the Hurricanes are complicating things. https://t.co/xuzcYm6MO1

Rumor is a 1st rounder is a part of the deal, if it goes through.
Update: With Sami Vatanen likely headed to Carolina, it looks like this one fell through.
Update 2: Or not…
