  • Subban thinks they'll be less distractions
    P.K. Subban anticipates things being different with the small market Nashville Predators compared to his time with the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: "I think there's just less distractions," Subban said. "I think in Montreal, things can become distractions for a team, and for us, I think that here, there's going to be less distractions for sure." Getting out from under the media scrutiny that comes from playing with the Montreal Canadiens might make things easier on him. That being said, he still excelled with the Canadiens and we believe Subban could play effectively in any market. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:32 am

  • Rangers ink Chris Kreider to 4-year extension
    Chris Kreider has inked a four-year, $18.5 million contract with the New York Rangers.

    Advice: Kreider was scheduled to have an arbitration hearing today, but this agreement made that moot. He'll come with a $4.625 million annual cap hit, which is very close to the $4.75 million he was requesting, but while the Rangers conceded ground in terms of average annual salary, Kreider provided them with a longer term. This could end up working out very well for the Rangers if Kreider demonstrates that at the age of 25 he hasn't yet reached his peak. He had 21 goals and 43 points in 79 contests last season after recording 46 points in 2014-15. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 am

  • Josh Jooris is grateful to the Flames
    Although the Calgary Flames declined to provide Josh Jooris with a qualifying offer, he's leaving with positive feelings about the franchise.

    Advice: "I definitely built amazing relationships in Calgary with the guys and within the organization," he said. "I was thankful for the opportunity they gave me and I learned a lot as a player. I was able to get my foot in the door and they granted me that opportunity. That was amazing. The two years I spent in Calgary were an unbelievable part of my career and part of my life." Although the Flames allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent by avoiding a qualifying offer, they still had some interest in re-signing him. However, the Flames needed to focus on other matters first and while Jooris waited to hear something more from them, he got an offer from the Rangers, which he agreed to. He'll spend the 2016-17 campaign on a one-year, two-way deal that will pay him $600,000 in the NHL or $350,000 in the minors with a guaranteed minimum total salary of $400,000.

"I think I did that pretty well last year, and offensively that was pretty good, too. I thought I had a great season, and the offense was really rolling. Now I’m coming here with that in the background, and hopefully at main camp this year that I’m going to be ready.

  • Mikhail Grigorenko agrees to terms with Avs
    Mikhail Grigorenko has inked a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Colorado Avalanche.

    Advice: As a result, Grigorenko's scheduled arbitration hearing for Friday is no longer necessary. He had requested a salary of $1.65 million and the Avalanche countered at $950,000, so they basically settled on the middle ground. Grigorenko has plenty of potential but he also has a lot to prove.

    Marcus Johansson has inked a three-year, $13.75 million contract with the Washington Capitals.

    Advice: With that, Johansson and Washington narrowly avoided the arbitration hearing scheduled for Wednesday.

It's also a sizable increase from his previous $3.75 million salary. He had 17 goals and 46 points in 74 games in 2015-16. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:13 am
  • Killorn's new deal comes with modified NTC

  • Johansson, Capitals submit proposed salaries

  • Tampa Bay signs Alex Killorn to 7-year deal
    Alex Killorn has agreed to a seven-year, $31.15 million contract.

    Advice: In other words, Killorn will come with a $4.45 million annual cap hit. The 26-year-old (27 in September) forward has recorded 41, 38, and 40 points in each of the last three seasons. Given his age, he's not really a prospect anymore and we have doubts that he'll ever achieve much higher heights offensively. He was coming off of a two-year, $5.1 million contract and had an arbitration hearing scheduled for July 20 that's now unnecessary. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:20 am

  • Habs don't keep analytics consultant Pfeffer
    Analytics consultant Matt Pfeffer has been informed by the Montreal Canadiens that his contract won't be renewed.

    Advice: Pfeffer's departure is noteworthy because it comes shortly after he argued to keep P.K. Subban on the team over Shea Weber. Montreal ultimately didn't agree with his recommendation and instead dealt Subban to Nashville in exchange for Weber. "Prior to the trade, I submitted a report comparing both players. I made a passionate case in favour of P.K. Subban," Pfeffer explained. "There was never a meeting with management. Ultimately, this is the nature of this kind of work. Management makes their decision based on a variety of criteria. Their evaluation may have been different in this case, but there was consensus on other decisions through my time with the team." Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:49 pm
  • P.K. Subban wanted to win Cup with Montreal
    P.K. Subban never envisioned himself playing for any other team than the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: Subban will of course be doing just that though after Montreal traded him to Nashville in exchange for Shea Weber. "I was talking to my Dad and many, many Christmases ago I went down the stairs, Christmas tree in the living room," Subban said, "and there’s a gift with my name on it. And I unwrap the present and it’s a Montreal Canadiens jersey with my name on it. Not only was it a gift for me that I loved, but I actually got to wear it and wear it with pride and wear it to work every day. But the reality is that today is Boxing Day, Christmas is over, so you just got to kind of move one, right?" Subban added that his ultimate goal was to win the Stanley Cup in Montreal, which now won't happen. That being said, as part of the Predators' impressive defensive core, he'll have an opportunity to compete for the Stanley Cup with them instead. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:29 am
