The Penguins got Rust, Letang, and Malkin, so there's a big issue solved right there.

Hopefully both Manson & Nic D are heading back to Anaheim. Verbeek is looking for size & those willing to do what it takes to protect the youngsters that are figuring out their game/s.  The two of them patrolling the ice for much of the game should provide a good deterrent (one would hope).

Maybe Josh can use part of his Day With The Cup to have a team meeting to show all of the kids what they'll be skating with in 4-6 years

_/this year's going to suck again, but the year after they should at least be competitive, & the one after that the start of their 'these guys are really good' window

I'll be interested to see what Steve Yzerman does in free agency.  Word is the Red Wings are looking to be aggressive, but that's about the only word about my team as Stevie Y has maintained organizational silence to his usual degree.

Another poor Sabres recruitment season begins.

So Kane and Malkin resigned at the 11th hour.

Re-signed, I mean.

... And Sweeney and Neely will make a lot of noise in Boston, offer subpar contracts to middling veterans because Jacobs still refuses to open the wallet, and then just shrug when none of it works and they have to beg Krejčí to play second-line center for 24 games before retiring again.

Much as I love the Bs and loved watching those guys play in the 80s, their management of the team over the last couple of years has sucked.

So where do we suppose Kadri is ending up? I cannot imagine the Avs can resign him with Mackinnon and Makar coming up for extensions in the near future.
 
2022-07-13 11:14:03 AM  
Kessel to Chicago, please. The season is going to be a dumpster fire, so why not roast some hot dogs.

tnpir: So where do we suppose Kadri is ending up? I cannot imagine the Avs can resign him with Mackinnon and Makar coming up for extensions in the near future.


We'll see.  They were just talking about Kadri on the Steve Dangle livestream and they think it's a real possibility that he stays in Colorado because the most likely landing spots (Red Wings and Rangers) are rumored to be pursuing other players.  Copp for Detroit, I didn't catch the name New York is supposedly interested in.

This opens the door to the trade I've been hearing on WEEI, with the B's getting that McDavid kid from Edmonton for Frederic, Nosek and a third round pick in 2028. League insider Ricky from Swansea thinks the Bruins would be crazy to say no to that one.

So 99 and Ted Nolan are going to the Leafs?

Rumors of Giroux to the Sens out of the gate.
 
2022-07-13 11:56:31 AM  
The Sharks are trying to trade Burns to the 'Canes. They need a deal that Burns okays because the Jerks aren't on his trade list. He's 37 and at a high cap hit, so I'd think the Sharks are going to have to eat some salary.

Looks like the deal would involve multiple players if it happens:

Blues to announce Robert Thomas @ 8 years 64 million.

Hope they save money for DP #57.

Vancouver doesn't have much cap space to spare. Looks like they will be waiting for other teams to circle back on a potential JT Miller deal after missing their targeted UFAs.

Good value deal. He was on a local list of potential adds that would fit but wouldn't break the bank.

Also, Lazar is from BC so the Canucks were his favourite team as a kid. When you are filling out the bottom of the roster, getting home-grown players is cheaper.

7 years @ $5.6M per.  Rag fans are going to hate the tail end of that contract.

Uh, oh. The AAV is $5.625M. That's a bit more than should be in our eyes. And we like Vincent Trocheck as you know. This is a big contract, good for Trocheck of course.

Ottawa is going for it this year.  Just a reminder, the last time Dorian tried this is what lead to 5 straight years of bad to awful.
