Report: Tyler Motte drawing interest 'from five to six teams'

One of the most interesting names to still be available this far into free agency is Tyler Motte, the bottom-six wrecking ball that has made a name for himself over the past few years. According to Rick Dhaliwal of CHEK TV, Motte has drawn interest from five to six teams, but “financials still need to be worked out.”

3 Potential Landing Spots for Tyler Motte

As we inch closer to training camp, Tyler Motte is still a free agent and looking for his next destination. The 27-year-old forward split this past season between the Vancouver Canucks and New York Rangers, where he had seven goals and eight assists in 58 games. Although he isn’t a particularly dominant offensive player, his defensive ability and gritty style of play make him valuable to have in the lineup. As a result of this, we should see him signed shortly. Let’s now take a look at three potential landing spots for him.

What’s going on with Tyler Motte?

Remember when the Rangers were supposed to re-sign Tyler Motte? That was originally reported by Mollie Walker at the end of June. It is now August 4, Motte is still unsigned, and the Rangers don’t have much cap space to work with. So is Motte going to sign elsewhere? Can the Rangers even afford him anymore?

Why has free-agent forward Tyler Motte drawn so little interest this offseason?

With their sights set on a Stanley Cup, the New York Rangers found themselves active buyers at last year’s trade deadline. Although the team made a few additions, forward Andrew Copp, whom the team acquired from the Winnipeg Jets, stole most of the attention. However, the team would have one of the more underrated deadline pickups, bringing in two-way energy forward Tyler Motte from the Vancouver Canucks. While it was the likes of Copp, Chris Kreider, Mika Zibanejad and Artemi Panarin who drove the Rangers offense up front, Motte showed through his complete game just how valuable he was to a team that was able to make a deeper playoff run than many had anticipated.

Where things stand with Kaapo Kakko and Tyler Motte

We’re less than two months away — yes, it’s true! — from training camp for the Rangers, who are looking to build on last season’s run to the Eastern Conference Final. There’s a new second-line center on Broadway by the name of Vincent Trocheck. The kids — Alexis Lafreniere, Filip Chytil, Kaapo Kakko (restricted free agent), K’Andre Miller and Braden Schneider — are each a year older and three playoff rounds wiser. Vitali Kravtsov will get another shot at cracking the roster. Oh, and Brennan Othmann and Will Cuylle are hungry to make the jump to the NHL. The No. 1...

After Rangers sign Kaapo Kakko is there room for Tyler Motte?

As the New York Rangers and Kaapo Kakko continue to work on a bridge deal with apparently no sense of urgency, one wonders if there’s still room for Tyler Motte?. Free Agent Frenzy opened last week and Motte, an unrestricted free agent, has yet to sign a contract. Considering the amount of teams with cap space it seems odd that he’s still available. Which leads to speculation that he and the Rangers could still be talking.

Thoughts on Tyler Motte re-signing rumors

In addition to the Pierre-Luc Dubois rumor, another rumor broke, with a soft confirmation by Mollie Walker about Tyler Motte re-signing with the Rangers. No details were given about potential contract terms, which gives us a combination of excitement and pause. Motte is a great role player and would really solidify the projected fourth line, but the contract could be a concern. As like this morning, I have some thoughts.
