  • Andrei Markov has displayed great durability
    Andrei Markov has become an iron man over the past four seasons.

    Advice: He has missed just two games during that span and they were both to give him some rest before the Stanley Cup Playoffs. "Touch wood," Markov said. "I just try to follow my routine every day. To be honest with you, it's not easy. But you realize you have no choice - you have to take care of yourself, be well rested and well prepared. That's what I try to do, and I enjoy every day." He also stated that he adds something new to his off-season training each year to challenge and improve himself. Markov has skated in 928 career NHL contests, which puts him on track for game No. 1,000 at home against the Ottawa Senators on March 19 if his durability remains intact. Rotoworld.com 51 minutes ago
  • McDavid would take captaincy very seriously
    Connor McDavid would be honored if he ended up being named the captain of the Edmonton Oilers.

    Advice: "Obviously. If I was ever the captain at any point I think it would be one of the greatest honors and one of the accomplishments that I would definitely take the most seriously," McDavid told the Toronto Sun. "I don't want to comment on it too much, but obviously it would be an unbelievable feeling." Edmonton may got without a captain in 2016-17, but it probably won't be long before McDavid is wearing the "C." Rotoworld.com Today, 3:46 pm

  • DeKeyser, Wings talking long-term contract
    Danny DeKeyser's arbitration hearing is set for Thursday, but an agreement on a long-term deal could be finalized before that.

    Advice: "Ideally, Danny would like to do a longer-term deal. The club would like to do a longer-term deal," GM Ken Holland said. "Since they filed, this period of negotiation and time to do your brief for an arbitration hearing has mostly been about discussions on a longer-term deal. We talked Thursday, we talked Friday, we're going to talk again today." He can only receive a one-year deal if his case is heard. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:32 am

  • Jordan Staal may follow Eric as next captain
    Jordan Staal could be the next captain of the Carolina Hurricanes.

    Advice: The Hurricanes haven't had a captain since Feb. 28 following the trade of Jordan's brother, Eric. Justin Faulk is considered to be another strong contender to wear the "C," but Staal has more experience in the league and a Stanley Cup ring. He was also a key contributor last season, especially during the second half. The Hurricanes won't rush the decision and it's possible that they could enter the year with multiple assistants.

  • Tim Schaller hopeful to crack B's lineup
    Tim Schaller believes he has a shot at a roster spot with Boston out of training camp.

    Advice: "Boston was a good fit," said the New Hampshire native. "We think I'm better than the prospects, so we thought it was a good fit. Hopefully I can beat out a bunch of guys for a job." Schaller spent most of the 2015-16 campaign in the minors with Buffalo, while generating three points in 17 appearances with the Sabres when he was called up. If he manages to land a spot with the team then it would probably be a fourth-line role. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:38 am

  • Ducks re-sign Stefan Noesen
    Stefan Noesen has re-signed with the Ducks on a one-year deal.

  • Peter Holland asks for $2.1 million
    Peter Holland has requested a salary of $2.1 million.

    Advice: Toronto has countered at $900,000. Holland had nine goals and 27 points in 65 contests last season while averaging 14:40 minutes per game. Keep in mind that while $2.1 million seems high for Holland, it's a negotiating point rather than what he likely expects to get. That said, Toronto strengthened its negotiating position by putting him on waivers. Every other team passed on the opportunity to claim him. His arbitration hearing is scheduled for July 25. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:12 pm
  • Peter Holland isn't claimed on waivers
    Peter Holland went unclaimed on waivers.

    Advice: That should help the Maple Leafs build their case for a reduced salary for Holland. After all, every other team in the league just had the opportunity to take him and no one stepped up to do so. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:08 pm
  • Brayden Schenn asks for $5.5 million salary
    Brayden Schenn is requesting a one-year, $5.5 million contract.

    Advice: The Philadelphia Flyers are countering with a two-year contract that would pay him $4.25 million in 2016-17 and $4,369,425 in 2017-18. This is all being presented ahead of his arbitration hearing scheduled for July 25. Obviously when players and teams make their pre-arbitration requests known there is going to be a salary gap and from a cap hit perspective, they're not terribly far off. What is somewhat unusual is that the Flyers have decided to ask for a two-year contract, so the difference between them could actually be larger because of it. If Schenn were to have presented what he wanted out of a two-year deal, he would have likely asked for an annual salary above his current request of $5.5 million. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:08 am

  • Leafs put Peter Holland on waivers
    Peter Holland has been placed on waivers.

    Advice: The Toronto Maple Leafs are likely sending a message ahead of Holland's July 25th arbitration hearing. If he clears waivers then it will help the Leafs make the case for him to get a lesser contract during that process. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:18 am
